SBN Presents...SBNation.com

A little note on something I'm personally involved with here at the Network...

This evening, SBN launched SBNation.com - a sports news aggregate site. In the words of the overlords:

SBNation.com will seek to do on a national level what each SB Nation network blog already does for its team or sport: provide the most timely, engaging and highest quality fan perspective information and conversation on the web. 

TechCrunch has some notes on what makes this venture a little different (and hopefully a little better) than other sites out there currently:

This whole stream idea is starting to catch on. Even sports blog network SBNation is adopting what CEO Jim Bankoff calls StoryStreams for a new redesign it is launching tonight. A StoryStream is "the latest news feeds, Tweets, videos, comments that move a major sports story along," says Bankoff.

...

But that’s not really the stream part. A big sports story, like basketball player Allen Iverson moving to the Memphis Grizzles (what is he thinking?), will sometimes show a number next to teh headline which indicates how many individual items are showing up about that one big story. If you click on one of those headlines, you come to a StoryStream page for that particular story, with blog posts, editor commentary, videos, Tweets, and so on about Iverson moving to Memphis or whatnot.

Make sure to swing by and check it out. I'll be acting as a contributing editor for SBNation every so often, so look for my name to pop up under NHL streams and updates now and then.
