Last year the NHL trade deadline was one of the most sucessful days in the brief history of the Roost. We didn’t get any links from anyone, but a lot of people showed up for the liveblog that we put on and it was fun to follow all the chaos in real time.
We wanted to do the same this year, but a few things have complicated that. The first one that comes to mind is Twitter, which is a chaotic mess of information and opinions that is absurd yet absolutely necessary for breaking news. It just so happens that breaking news is pretty much what Deadline Day is all about, so Twitter needs to be a part of what we do.
The other problem, which really isn’t much of a problem at all, is the fact that there are a lot of sites out there to read and follow breaking news on. We aren’t the only Sabres blog out there and we are far from the best, so we wanted to find a way to bring everyone together in one place and share information (and requisite snark).
So we did.
The Goose’s Roost and another dozen or so sites out there in the Buffalo Blogosphere are coming together to live blog together: a Mega Live Blog for Deadline Day and you’re invited. Starting at 10am Wednesday morning and going until the final trade is announced well after 4pm, we’ll be here talking about Darcy Regier and the rest of the league.
We’re really hoping you stop by for a bit and chat, we think it will be a lot of fun. If you’d like to host the Cover it Live chat on your site, or even if you want to help us out a bit throughout the day shoot us an email.
Get ready guys, tomorrow is going to be very, very interesting.
