HBO updates medical challenges for Jorge Posada IV

HBO's "Real Sports" debuting Tuesday features an update on a 2003 piece about Jorge Posada's son, Jorge IV, and his struggles with craniosynostosis, a condition that causes malformation of the skull. Now 9 and after many surgeries, Posada's son is doing very well, thank you.

Bill Simmons bids adieu to ESPN The Magazine with a tribute to his father.

Sports Business Journal reports the Arena Football League - including Our Dragons - is considering bankruptcy, is $14 million in debt and might have to delay the start of its 2010 season until June, if there is a 2010 season.

Sorry about slow blogging pace. I'm just marking time until our Web relaunch later this week. Not sure I'm supposed to say exactly when, in case it's delayed.

There will be good things about it (better integration of blog posts and stories/columns), bad things about it (less interesting pictures) and good news/bad news things about it (a registration-based commenting system).

As for the new look, that will be a matter of personal preference. Some of you will love it and others will hate it. I think it looks kinda cool.

Stay tuned, as they say in the newspaper cliche business!

Slow sports news day. Oh wait, maybe not. Looks like a Nevada casino employee has filed a civil lawsuit against Steeler quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, accusing him of sexual assault. His attorney denies the charge. I don't know the merits of the case. I hope he is innocent...

But why no mention of it on ESPN? An oversight? Doubtful. Perhaps there would be copious amounts of interest if the accuser were a dog and not a woman. In another life, I want to be a dog.

In all seriousness, I hope there is no coverage only because they have reliable information that goes to the credibility of the civil suit.

Calling Don Ohlmeyer.


Will you still be posting gratuitous photos of scantily clad fems on the new site??

Neil, Any word on where Bill Simmons is going? Is he staying with ESPN?

I promise that I will both love and hate whatever new changes come along.

Jon: Still at ESPN, just not at mag.

Maybe this webhead will render the page in Firefox so we don't have to scroll down 300 times to get to the actual content?
