Wall Street Journal Adds Sports Section
Hard to call it a section, but the venerable Wall Street Journal has added sports to its mix, with the debut of one page of sports coverage on page D8 of the March 4 issue. (To the credit of WSJ, however, the Web sports section is quite complete.)
The one page was mostly about (boring) college hoops, but one "Heard on the Field" brief item told how Michael Vick’s country club retreat near Atlanta was being auctioned off to help pay creditors of the former Falcons quarterback. He paid $3.8 million for the eight-bedroom, 1.5-acre estate, and the opening bid is set for $3.2 million. I wonder if anyone will go that high in this day and age.
