Video: BBC Coverage of Clemens Trial Includes Interview with Reporter Who Knows Nothing About Baseball

Ben Walker is the Associated Press baseball editor. Unfortunately for the BBC, the person they turned to for commentary about the Roger Clemens trial was not Ben Walker, but Michael Wolff of Newser, whose hilarious response makes this video worth the while.

SI Releases Its Twitter 100

I love lists, as they’re always a great source of debate. And when a list covers something like the top 100 Twitter sources of “news, information and entertainment from the sports world,” then I stand to be educated as well. Sports Illustrated polled 50 staffers who are hard-cored Twitter users and asked them which feeds they considered essential to their daily routine.

The list is presented in alphabetical order, and is not ranked according to Twitter followers among SI staffers.

We gave them one guideline: You could not choose anyone associated with SI or our main Twitter feed (@SINow).

Some of the athletes who made the list include Gilbert Arenas, Brandon Phillips and Chad Ochocinco.Shaquille O’Neal did not make the list.

Some other things that jump out:

* Albert Breer of the NFL Network, Jay Glazer of Fox Sports and Adam Schefter of ESPN are NFL reporters who made the list. Chris Mortensen of ESPN did not, nor did former SI football reporter Michael Silver, now of Yahoo! Sports.

* Jason Whitlock of FoxSports and Gregg Doyel of CBS did not make the list. Bill Simmons did.

This is just the Twitter demographics for one sports media company. No doubt a similar poll from CBS Sports or ESPN would look much different.

 

NHL, Officials Agree to New Deal Without Any Drama

Well that was easy. The NHL and its officials have a brand new four-year deal, all spiffy and ratified.

At a time when the NBA and the NFL are on the verge of work stoppages, it’s nice to see someone solving problems constructively and simply. Granted, the money isn’t close to the same, but still: no games, no shots in the media, just actionable solutions.

“We are pleased to have reached a new agreement with our officials,” NHL Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly told the AP. “We look forward to working closely with our officials to ensure that the quality of our game continues to be the best that it can be.”

We might not have basketball or football in 2011, but we’ll always have hockey.
