Boston.com buys Boston Dirt Dogs
Here’s a press release from the mothership about Boston.com buying Boston Dirt Dogs.
[Boston.com editor Teresa] Hanafin said, “We want to give Red Sox fans as many opportunities to talk and debate about sports as possible, and Boston Dirt Dogs is the perfect forum for that. Our users love joining the conversation about sports online every day, whether it’s sending us photos for a Johnny Damon look-alikes gallery, creating party recipes for the Patriots’ Super Bowl run or ranting about a managerial move in the previous night’s game.”
I think this is a great move for Boston.com; I’d like to see them buy up other locally-focused weblogs. The next obvious choice would be Boston Common. Adam does a great job pulling together the best of the local weblogs; it’s a natural fit with Boston.com.
I’ll have to walk upstairs and ask Teresa if they could do that…
