ESPN reverses course, reports on Ben Roethlisberger

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been named

Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger has been named as a defendant in a lawsuit filed by a woman in Nevada. According to online court records, a defamation lawsuit was filed in Washoe County on Friday. (July 21)

Well, gang, we've entered a whole new world, one in which the type is white and the background dark. What do you think?

I mostly like it, but I'm biased. And it is going to take some time to get used to.

One urgent matter: I'm not clear on whether existing RSS feeds will pick up the new-look blog or you have to sign up all over again.

I don't want to bother our busy Web guys with this question. Anyone out there able to answer it for me?

Come to think of it, though, I haven't yet figured out how reader commenting works in the new system. Whatever. We will learn this stuff together.

As a parting gift last night, less than an hour before our 11 p.m. relaunch, ESPN sent a statement explaining its decision to abruptly start reporting the Ben Roethlisberger story.

Here it is, the third version of my newspaper story on that subject and my first official link on the new blog. History!
