More Vermont newspaper blogs

Man, those Burlington Free Press reporters have some kind of crazy blog fevah! Look at them go! They just added The Gadabout to their blog line-up. It's written by staffers Victoria Welch and Sky Barsch and their as-yet-unnamed friends, who will share with us their random thoughts on Burlington nightlife and "the social scene." This brings the BFP blog total to four. Holy heck!

Bringing the Seven Days blog total to four is Meghan Dewald's The Daily Digest , in which our intrepid calendar writer will chronicle her month-long adventure with the localvore challenge. Regular 802 readers will recognize Meghan's mug — she was a guest poster for me a couple times, when I was on vacation and maternity leave. It's about frickin' time she got her own blog.

I feel like we should challenge the Free Press bloggers to some kind of sporting contest. I was thinking badminton, but that's a one on one or two on two affair. Maybe volleyball? But it bruises my arms... What kind of games can you play with four on a side? If we added Don our web guy, we could field five. Maybe basketball? But it's so sweaty.

What about a horseshoe tournament? Or cards? A really cutthroat game of spoons, mayhap?

Hi Cathy,
Yep, Vicky and I have the fevah. Thanks for the mention. Our friends consist of any other staffers here.
Sporting contest... huh. I don't want to speak for anyone else, but I think that could be fun. A pulse-pumping game of Apples to Apples? Bocce?

I would like to propose an eradication of the term "localvore." Ewwww, yech.

Hey Sky. I just got an email suggesting a sporting croquet match. I happen to have a set...
