We always knew this Posnanski guy would make it big

Joe Posnanski really has been the water carrier for a lot of would-be writers, so this something to share in vicariously.
That’s why I’m really excited about the big blog news that I’ve been teasing for the last few weeks. Starting next week, Sportslllustrated.comsi.com, for short — will be reprinting this blog. Don’t even ask how that happened. And, even more thrilling, starting next week I will write one column a week for the Sports Illustrated dot-com — I believe it will appear on Wednesdays.

There are any number of cool things about this. For one, this blog should not change at all. SI just wants to reprint it. Also, I’m still writing columns for The Kansas City Star, which has been home and family for a dozen years now. And finally, I will be writing for Sports Illustrated, which is where it all began for me.

Awesome to see. Poz is one of my sportswriting heroes, so I was thrilled to hear that he was getting an SI gig. Even better is that he won't have to change what makes his blog great. Good to see SI still has some sense of good writing (of course, they still have Jim Kelley on the payroll, so things aren't uniformly good there)...
