Ballhype launches

Erin and Jason Gurney of Lowpost fame yesterday launched Ballhype, a "sports news and social networking site." If you're a sports fan, make sure to check out the new site. Below is a description:

The site has a lot of Digg-like features. Users can add sports stories and other users vote those stories up or down, and add comments. Unlike Digg, though, categorization is very important. Sports fans generally care about local teams, or focus on one league. So BallHype allows L.A. Lakers fans to zero right in on relevant content. Or they can focus on L.A. sports in general instead.

BallHype also allows users to add friends and create groups (and other basic social networking features), so local fans can be in touch with each other.
