Some teams are taking note of blogs and bloggers. Note first this article in the Washington Post about Nationals blogs, and how the team is being very proactive in their dealings with the “Natosphere.” Very, very interesting article. Heck, the team president is even emailing some Nat bloggers (though I must confess disappointment that Daedalus wasn’t mentioned; I like to think she’s more of a Reds blogger, anyway).
I also see that the Atlanta Hawks just hosted a “Blog Night”, offering free entry, a tour of the arena, free food, and a wireless connection so Atlanta-area bloggers can blog about the game. I’d say that’s a pretty good way to get some (almost) free publicity. (Of course, isn’t the Nats president the former president of the Hawks? I’m sensing a connection.)
Anyway, I thought it was interesting.
