What Would Bloggers Do? Well, here is what they did. Each item is followed by a MIF (Most Interesting Fact) from the article.

  • This comes from This is an Adventure, which states, "Why Ted Thompson May Be a Horrible GM."
          MIF: While breaking down Ted Thompson's reign with the Green Bay Packers year-by-year, This is an Adventure writes, "Because the shareholder meetings aren’t exactly daily activities, Thompson gets to fend for himself on most decisions without any significant input from an owner - there’s no Jerry Jones, no Robert Kraft, and certainly no Dan Snyder looking over his shoulder."

  • With the Olympics right around the corner, Stiles Points wonders "Whatever happened to Olympic swimmer Janet Evans?"
          MIF: "She once said in an interview that her career highlight took place at the opening ceremony of the 1996 Olympics when she handed the torch to Muhammad Ali just before he lit the cauldron...she said that she cried after seeing Ali escorted from the Olympic stadium."

  • Fanhouse writes, "Did Kate Hudson Trade In Lance Armstrong for Eric Lindros?"
          MIF: "Still, I don't see how this could be considered 'trading up,' as the gossip site states (Sports By Brooks, who reported this item first). Is a retired has-been hockey player really that much better than a flaky actor (Owen Wilson) or Sheryl Crow's well-travelled rubbish (Armstrong)? Couldn't Hudson have found love with a current player on the LA Kings?" Whatever it was, it was nice to see Armstrong get dumped. Seems like he is be coming more known as a player (aka womanizer) than athlete.

  • Poltico's Ben Smith blogs, "(Barack) Obama: Check space aliens' party registration."
         MIF: "KGAN's oddball interview also asked (Barack Obama) what rock star he'd like to be -- he said Stevie Wonder; his best feature -- 'my ears'; and what he likes on his pizza -- he said pepperoni and sausage." Stupid questions someone has to ask.
