Staying Busy: What and Where I am Writing

by Hal Bent

I don't want anyone to think I'm slacking here at BostonSportPage, but between the 9-to-5er and my other writing responsibilities (MusketFire and The Daily Comics Review) as well as a few other New England Patriots writing that I have lined up (even though I doubt I have time to do it, it will be full speed ahead very, very soon!).  

I still make time to lurk, read, and opine, and harass (just kidding!) some great sportswriters online as well, at The Sports Blog Nation and YouGabSports.  If you haven't visited these sites, I highly recommend them. I post my BostonSportPage work at TSBN and owe my friends at YouGabSports some content real soon. 

My off-season project at MusketFire has turned into an obsession (what else is new) as I have been revisiting the Bill Belichick drafts in New England and grading them (borrowing the fancy professor hat and tweed jacket from my favorite Professor and resident BostonSportPage footy fanatic and sometime contributor, Professor Brigham). A suggestion by one of my Twitter buddies, Willy, spurred me into action. Now, I spend way too much time going back and diving into these past drafts, and have made it to part seven much sooner than I anticipated, just finishing the 2006 draft.  If you've missed any of them, or want to get caught up, you can read them here:
