Former UConn Husky and current Washington Wizards small forward Caron Butler has joined the ranks of athlete bloggers. He will be blogging throughout the season over at HoopsHype.com.

Here’s the opening paragraph of his first blog entry:

Since Gilbert Arenas no longer wants to blog, I guess it’s my turn now. You can read me here throughout the season with my thoughts on the Wizards, the NBA and more. So here were go. Hope you like it.

It should interesting to see what Butler has to say during the season. Plus I can’t wait to see what he has to say about any former UConn players they play during the season.
