Recently the St. Pete Times introduced a new feature in their various sports blogs, a video report called the “Midday sports report.” We were excited. We wondered what might this new feature bring? Might it be Marc Topkin’s musings on various Rays topics? Might Joe Smith reveal his true identity? The introduction of a vlog seemed like a logical step for a newspaper as it tries to keep pace with new age media. The possibilities seemed endless.
Then we watched one. And we watched another. And what did we see? A 90-second promotional video telling us what St. Pete Times reporters will be writing…sometime in the future.
We would rather spend 90 seconds staring at Gabe Kapler wearing a spee…Um. Nevermind.
