Josh Suchon, the former post-game broadcaster for the Dodgers, is now blogging with a friend, mostly about Northern California. He tells a nice story on himself that along the way sheds some light on the relationships between fans, reporters and sports figures. It's about the time, as a kid in Oakland, that he yelled something at Dodgers pitcher Orel Hershiser. What he yelled made it (anonymously) into Sports Illustrated. And then the story begins.

By the way: Suchon's blog is, in a phrase, pretty good. He and his co-blogger, Matt Hurst, are both ex-newspaper scribes. They write mostly about sports, in a smart way, with a Northern California inflection. Their most recent post is a podcast that discusses how close the NFL is to accepting an openly gay player in the locker room, "the type of athlete needed to break this 'barrier,' what regions of the country would be most accepting, and the type of teammates needed."
Note: Suchon lives currently in Los Angeles, Hurst in Santa Barbara
