As you’ve probably picked up from following sportswriters on Twitter, we have other interests than just sports. Why? Because people who only like sports and nothing else are pretty much the worst. If you can help it, don’t be a person who only likes sports.
With time on my hands given the early end to the Bruins’ season, Rob Bradford and I agreed that there should be some sort of space on WEEI.com dedicated to pop culture. With people like John Tomase and Scott McLaughlin on our staff, it seemed silly to not do it. John has shared his movie musings on the site before, Scott and I have both blogged about music and I co-host a wildly successful pop culture podcast with Pete Blackburn called BRUNCH.
(That was as modest as I could possibly be. The blog was my idea, and of course you’ve heard of BRUNCH. Rob came up with the name though, which is amazing. Shouts Allen Iverson.)
So Scott, John, yours truly and a cast of others will populate this space in addition to our regular duties covering our respective sports. We’ll incorporate more ideas as they come, but for now consider this a more eloquent extension of our twitter accounts, which are rife with takes relating to music, movies, television and lord knows what else. Like our regular work, there will be quick-hitting posts and there will be longer stuff that you won’t make it all the way through but will still share on social media with a “good read” comment.
Bookmark the blog and check back often. There’s a ton of good stuff on WEEI.com, and we hope this can add to it.
