Companion Reading
The podcasters discussed the articles and topics listed below during the HEATcast.

The Corporate Award
“A CHB, much like a fanatic, is about what they can get. Instead of autographs and courtside seats, its money from teams/media corporations, media credentials and access to players over intelligent and free thinking analysis.”

These bloggers put the "Corporate" in Corporate Heaux Bloggers:

The Heaux Award
“Corporate Heaux Bloggers are also ones to generate a large portion of their site traffic using TMZ rumors and naked men/women, many of whom have ZERO relation to the sport(s) that said blogger is covering.”

This pimpin' ass blogger put the "Heaux" in Corporate Heaux Bloggers: Black Sports Online.

The Blogger Award
“I compare Corporate Heaux Bloggers to fanatics, they aren’t *necessarily* the most knowledgeable, analytical, but they do what ever it takes to get the most page views and, in turn, generating a huge revenue stream. They, in a sense, sell out their knowledge just to receive thousands upon thousands of views.”

These thirsty bitchasses put the "Blogger" in Corporate Heaux Blogger:

Rookie CHB of the Year
The biggest Corporate Heaux Blogger new to the scene: Anthony Ramsey from Los That Sports Blog
