UCB: Game Blogging Project Lineup

Posted on April 24, 2008 at 3:10 PM
Filed Under: Baseball | St. Louis Cardinals | United Cardinal Bloggers
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.

First Inning
: Stan Musial's Stance
Prior UCB Experience: Top 5, All-Star, Roundtable
The Angry Rant isn't always talking Cardinals, but he's always interesting.

Second Inning: The Cardinal Virtue
Prior UCB Experience: None
John is our foreign correspondent, participating all the way from Ireland.

Third Inning: Mike on the Cards
Prior UCB Experience: Roundtable
Mike's a regular poster, full of good links and videos, all Cardinal related.

Fourth Inning: C70 At The Bat

Fifth Inning
: CardinalNationGlobe
Prior UCB Experience: Awards, Top 5, All-Star, 08 Predictions
Deaner was one of the first to sign on to the UCB and one of the most active.

Sixth Inning: Rockin' the Red
Prior UCB Experience: Awards, Top 5, All-Star, Roundtable, YNOT
It wouldn't be a UCB project without Bryan chipping in.

Seventh Inning: Fungoes
Prior UCB Experience: None
Pip and possibly the most sabermetrically-focused Cardinal blog jumps into the fray.

Eighth Inning
: The Redbird Blog
Prior UCB Experience: 08 Predictions, Roundtable
Don stays up to date with the Cardinals and the blogging from the Mountain Time Zone.

Ninth Inning: Redbird Ramblings
Prior UCB Experience: Awards, All-Star, 08 Predictions, Roundtable
Haedar will wrap it up for his fifth UCB appearance.

Everyone should have their entry up by Saturday evening or Sunday.  Don't worry, I'll post a reminder next week.  Plan to visit all of these great blogs regularly, but definitely next weekend!

I'm lookin' forward to participating. However, I'm as American as it gets. I'm only in Ireland for studies.
