I'm not from Milwaukee or anywhere hereabouts. So I've never heard of Don Walker. But scanning over his blog, I know that if I was from around here, I would be quite familiar with his work.
While his posts are very short and concise, they use hyperlinks to tell the story away from the page. They also focus in on topics off the field of play, hence the title, "The Business of Sports."
His most recent post, about the "Inaccurate Reception" game between the Packers and Seahawks, was only five sentences long. But what made it "longer" in a way were the two links it had to particularly pertinent Wikipedia pages that dealt with Packer in-game tragedies.
Here's the link he posted to about the recent Packer game. The other link he posted was to the 4th and 26 game's page, a game in which the Eagles converted a crucial long first down to sink the Pack in the playoffs, much to the delight of a particular journalism professor of mine.
Walker's blog seems like chicken soup to the soul of a Milwaukee and Wisconsin sports fan, and niche for local sports lovers to get a unique take on the happenings of their sports scene. I'm looking forward to meeting Mr. Walker in journalism 4932 tomorrow afternoon
