AOL's FanHouse (or FanHaus for those on the inside) is coming to some sort of transition. Depending on how you spin it, FanHouse is either being killed or being absorbed by Sporting News, which will be AOL's new source of sports content.
I owe the start of my sports career to former FanHouse executive producer Jamie Mottram who hired me as a blogger when NBA FanHouse launched in 2006, and to his successor John Ness who later hired me as a producer. I left FanHouse just a few months after taking over for Ness, and I've never been sure where the Haus was going since.
No tribute to FanHouse would be complete without boobs, so let's reminisce about the Fantasy Sports Girls, whose partnership with FanHouse was introduced shortly after I gave notice that I was leaving in 2008.
The girls were quickly nixed and replaced a few months later with columnist Jay Mariotti. You've come a long way, baby?
As I've said before, there were and are some very talented people at FanHouse, and I wish them the best in whatever the future holds.
