Commenting on a Great Game

Dave Studeman from The Hardball Times has done something rather interesting. Call it a study of online behavior with one of the year’s best games as a backdrop.

He’s taken the game between the Dodgers and Padres that went 10 innings (you know, the one with four straight dingers and Nomar’s game winning blast?) and combined in chronological order some of that night’s comments from Padres blog, Ducksnorts as well as comments from Dodgers blog, Dodgers Thoughts. To give the comments context, he’s inserted game occurrences.

It’s rather interesting and somewhat humorous. My favorite comment:

DT: Gameday seems to be broke. It keeps on saying every Dodger hitter is hitting a home run. Major software bug or something.

*shrug* Maybe he was serious.

Anyway, check it out.
