From 'Reiss's Pieces' to 'Extra Points'

Amanda BrunoCorrespondent ISeptember 14, 2009
They could have taken the easy way out and just called it, "Patriots blog," just like "Celtics blog" and "Bruins blog," but they decided not to go that route. 

So what did they end up coming up with?

That's not bad, but it's kind of similar to "Extra Bases" the Boston Red Sox blog.

Anyways it's almost kind of depressing that's it's not called "Reiss's Pieces" anymore. That was definitely the best blog name ever created on the site and it's too bad that ESPN Boston can't incorporate Reiss's new blog, to have the same name.

It appears that ESPN's style is just having the reporter's name. How boring. Why not amp it up a bit? It's not a huge deal, but "catchiness" never hurt anyone.

Good luck to Mr. Reiss and to Mr. Christopher L. Gasper who appears to be the main Patriots' beat reporter as noted off to the side of the blog:

"Christopher L. Gasper and the rest of the Globe and sports team provide regular updates –and a behind-the-scenes look– on the daily happenings of the Patriots."
