Spencer Hall of the Sporting Blog listed 3 blogs everyone should read this week in The Sporting News Today for Monday, September 22nd, 2008. The first one listed is BSD. Hall said this:
The standard-bearer for balancing pregame prep with punchy news streaming, Black Shoe Diaries is your custom-built wellspring for all things Paterno this season. And that's precisely the point here: No other blog has handled the question of the aging coaching legend with greater sensitivity, levity, and honesty than BSD. It's skilled writing for tricky times in State College, and one of the best Big Ten blogs overall for the obsessed , bratwurst-devouring Midwestern football fan in us all.
When you click on the link above you'll have to maneuver your way to page 28 to see BSD mentioned.
