It's a pleasure to announce some big news involving The CIS Blog (cisblog.ca).
The site has been included in theScore.com Sports Federation, a blog network which the network launched this morning, involving 12 Canadian-based sites. It's the only one dedicated to amateur sport (insert your own Leafs or Canucks joke), so it does feel like a bit of a coup to see the site included. James Mirtle, who has the university sports beat for The Globe & Mail in addition to his renowned hockey writing, saw a need for such a site. Andrew Bucholtz and Rob Pettapiece have carried on with the work and really built it up over the past couple months.
A debt of gratitude is owed to Scott Carefoot from RaptorBlog.com, who'sa heavy hitter with the network's digital media ventures. We promise not to disappoint.
Here's a full roster of the inaugural members of the Federation:
Drunk Jays Fans
Ghostrunner on First
Dino Nation Blog
Down Goes Brown (Leafs)
Canucks Hockey Blog
Five Hole Fanatics (Flames)
Black Dog Hates Skunks (Oilers)
Lions in Winter (Canadiens)
