Guy In The Middle Manages Mishawaka Shoneys

As part of today’s free SbB Live subscription offer, here’s a photo of Steve Mariucci and Tom Izzo when they played on the same Michigan high school basketball team:

I actually think that’s Evan Eschmeyer in the middle. So that’s when his first year of eligibility was!

New SbB Feature Rollouts: “SbB Live”, “SbB@3″

Today we’re adding a couple new features to SbB.

This morning we’re launching something called “SbB Live”. Weekdays from 10a-Midnight ET, I will update all essential sports news as it happens. Weekends will be from Noon-10p ET. The entries/links will be very short, and organized by hour. There will be a small, high profile update box on the front page containing the last four entries along with a link to a main SbB Live page that includes all the entries from that day - plus archives. Bookmark that. It’ll be very handy.

SbB Live is not a live blog, and it isn’t Twitter. It’s an hour-by-hour accounting of the major sports news that breaks everyday. So if you’re out to lunch from 1p ET to 3p ET, you can goto the SbB Live main page and see precisely what broke during those hours - instead of guesswork via the ESPN.com front page or any other main sports media source. And it’ll all be on basically one page for you, with simple text links.

Eazy, brah. Read more…
