As a big fan of Bill Simmons, I’m excited for his new site (in association with ESPN): Grantland.
With Simmons as editor-in-chief, Grantland.com is scheduled to launch in June with a mix of original columns, long-form features, blog posts, and podcasts. The name of the site honors the legacy of Grantland Rice, the legendary sportswriter who helped elevate sports into American culture during the early 20th Century.
Chuck Klosterman, Malcolm Gladwell, Dave Eggers and many others are on board. Awesome.
