ESPN has announced the name and roster of writers for Bill Simmons’ sports and pop culture mega-website – Grantland. The site is named after writer Grantland Rice because what the heck else would you possibly call it? Grantland Rice was dead before 98% of people who use the internet were born, but the Sports Guy brand will draw people either way. The new site will feature Chuck Klosterman, Malcolm Gladwell, Dave Eggers,Michael Weinreb, Katie Baker, Molly Lambert, Chris Ryan, Robert Mays III, Bill Barnwell and Patrice Evans. Hey, as long as Jack-O still tells me how the Yankees are looking, I’m fine. [ESPN Media Zone, GRANTLAND.com, not to be confused with Grantland.net]
