The guy widely regarded as the top Vikings reporter in Minneapolis, Kevin Seifert, is leaving the Star-Tribune to take a job blogging the NFC North for ESPN.com.
This is big news for a few reasons. One: Seifert really is the best Vikings reporter, and it will be sad to no longer have him covering the team. Two: This is further proof that blogs are taking over the media entirely…a top local beat reporter leaving the #1 newspaper in town to write exclusively on the web. Three: There is one less person ahead of me in line for that job as the #1 Vikings reporter in Minnesota. Now I just have to get past every other newspaper writer, magazine writer, blogger, TV reporter and loud drunk guy shouting stuff at his friends.
One day, that job will be mine (after the Apocalypse for sure).
