The Hirschy Bears, the official rotisserie baseball team of the Core Knowledge Blog, are off to a flying 10-o start, all alone in first place in Blog Ball, a rotisserie baseball league made up of edubloggers. As if we needed an excuse to spend even more time online, Scott McLeod of Dangerously Irrelevant made the mistake of inviting us to join his league, no doubt assuming we’d lack the 21st century skills to acquit ourselves and mistaking us for raw meat. Clearly, he underestimates our vast reserves of baseball background knowledge. Steven Spielberg might not be able to manage the Yankees, but we’re doing just fine, thanks.
Jim Dornberg of EdTech Update is the defending champion. Other bloggers in the hunt for glory include Auburn Public Schools Ed. Tech Blog, Raised Digital, Bill Ferriter’s The Tempered Radical, Future of Education, The Hump in the Bus, Mr. Higgins’ Blog, Philosophy Without a Home, Roosevelt Elementary, and Dave Sherman’s The Principal and Interest, who found themselves at the business end of the Bears’ mighty offense last week.
Eduwonk has Friday Fish Porn and Jay Greene regularly holds forth on ABC’s Lost. Readers of this blog can rest assured, however, I will not be providing regular BlogBall updates. Unless of course, the Bears continue to dominate. Then I will be unable to resist.
