World Cup 2002 is upon us and there are already several weblogs covering the event. There’s World Cup 2002 Blog, the World Cup 2002 weblog at howardstreet.com, Blog Sport’s World Cup 2002 Weblog, and SportsFilter’s soccer category. The pros are getting into the act as well with the Guardian’s World Cup Weblog and Time.com’s World Cup Weblog. Update: there’s also El Weblog del Mundial from Argentina.
If I’m not mistaken, this week brings us another milestone in the “coming of age” of weblogs: the first mention of the word “weblog” on the front page of CNN.com (a link to Time.com’s World Cup Weblog, screenshot here).
