Here's the backstory, if you are new to the blog. Last fall, after the season was over and blogging topics were a little harder to come by, I contacted some of my fellow Cardinal bloggers to see if they were interested in some group blogging projects. Various ideas were tossed around and we've done a few good ones in the intervening span.
For example, in November, we handed out the Cardinal Blogger Awards
. In December, we selected our Top 5 Stories of 2007
. January had us list out our personal Cardinal All-Star teams
. Then March turned into UCB month, what with our predictions
, the roundtable
, and the Answering the YNOT
entry. So, as you can read, we've been fairly busy.
One of the first ideas I had for these group, though, had to wait until the season started. Now we are able to bring the Game Blog idea to life. On Saturday, May 2nd, the Cardinals host the Cubs and the UCB will be recording it.
Each inning will be covered by a different blogger. They'll bring their own take, biases, digressions, and style to the inning, giving you the feeling of seeing the same game through many different eyes. As far as I know, this is the first time anything like this has been attempted!
So, with that in mind, let's see who is doing what in this project. Note that assigned innings may change.
