What they’re saying about Bill Simmons’ Grantland

Columbia Journalism Review
“At best, Grantland so far is jaunty revelry for the sporting life and for culture at large,” writes Sam Eifling. “At worst, it threatens to go down as the Manhattan Project of navel-gazing.”

* “Grantland is the new establishment in American sportswriting” (Tony Manfred)
* “My early review: Any site that features Chuck Klosterman is ok by me.” (John Clay)
> “All this stuff seems like it would fit on ESPN.com.” (The Big Lead)
> “I think Grantland is bound to be an unquestioned success” (Matt Kiebus)

    Any effort which acknowledges Grantland Rice is welcome.  Let’s all pretend that there’s a place in the world for quality sports writing, or just writing. Long live the National.  Excelsior.
