Looks like it's gonna be Al over Jim...who knew?

So, I make a brief return to posting just to express my surprise at the state of the blogosphere. In the early days (pre-ultimate talk) it seemed like most of the blogs were going to follow the Parinella model, polite and respectful. George's blog, Zaz's blog, and Marshall's blog all seemed to follow that model. Even Idris' blog and this blog, which preceded Parinella's blog (and aren't quite as milk-toast as Jim's blog) utilized a similar tone.

But the recent addition of this blog has got me thinking. The new popular ultimate blogs (Match Diesel's and Karlinsky's) have followed the Count's Blog model--they're irreverent and usually pretty funny. Match Diesel's Blog is even sporting the Count's trademark flames.

I thought I was just imagining this trend until I saw Parinella post some of the old T-Man stuff in an obvious attempt claim these new wild blogs as his own.

I'm not fooled though...looks like it's Al over Jim in the battle for the future of ultimatetalk.

...Luke's blog continues to resist categorization.

Hey, the name is Brandyn, just running around the internet on Ultimate Frisbee and so forth and came across your blog (it was one of the top 20 search results on Yahoo!), I am very intrested in coaching strategy and Ultimate in general, I plan on establishing Ultimate Frisbee as a high school spring sport (high hopes). I am not very familiar with strategy on defense or offense while in play, I play a lot, but usually just do what I judge is best to do. Any advice is openly welcome, otherwise I will subscribe to your blogs and glean what I can.
