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.
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.
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.

“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.
