Blogspotting



I really enjoy getting my sports info from the independent bloggers that specialize in their sport of interest. If you’re a regular here, you know that I have a serious case of sports ADD and can barely stay on one sport for an entire post most of the time. Today will be no exception! Here are some suggestions I have about where to get specific about a sport:

Golf
: There are a few golf sites I frequent including Golf Girl’s Diary and The Golf Chick Golf Blog. Another really good golf-related site is Golf WRX. I’m not just saying the latter simply because I contribute to their blog. This site is worth checking out because they not only have a golf blog but forums and resources for every golfer. I also read The Golf Blog pretty regularly.

Soccer: There are some very dedicated soccer bloggers out there that cover nearly all of the leagues around the world. Start with For Girls Who Can’t Do Football for a fun view and then hop over to A Futebol Fan. Both of these cover football/soccer in far more depth than I ever could.

Basketball: If it has anything to do with hoops, you can find it on And One. I’m also a big fan of Club Lakers and Le Basketbawl. Club Lakers is actually more than one blog and a whole community.

Focus on Women’s Sports: Athletic Women Blog and Women’s Sports Blog are the best I’ve seen to cover women almost exclusively.

Surfing
: On Surfari is my favorite surf spot on the web and I check out the Rincon Surf Blog from time to time as well. The I Surf With Friends network is a great place to get info as well.

Do you have a good source for specialized sports coverage? Let me know. I’m always looking for good sources! If you have a sports blog (or are a sports fanatic in general) and want to collaborate, trade links, or would like to guest contribute send me an email.

Hi Apryl, Thanks for sharing what your read! Do you read them all on Google reader? I add them on Google reader and it saves me so much time.

What blogs do you read for tennis? I'm still looking for tennis blogs with cool info on Nadal and Djokovic, mainly the men's ATP, and updated very often.

Another soccer blog I read often is Italiansoccerseriea .com about the Italian Serie A.

Thanks for linking to my blog A Futebol Fan ;-).

Thanks Monica - yeah, I use Google reader and love it! I don't have a favorite tennis yet, I just sort of comb the news. Let me know when you find a good one.

There are not a lot of sports blogs that I visit. And the thing I like about your blog is you cover all sports, and not just football, basketball and baseball. Have you come across any good adventure racing or rugby blogs?

Apryl DeLancey said...

Thanks Lindsay - and I am still looking for those two as well. I am looking though and will post about when I do find good info.

BTW Apryl,

I forgot to post this last time. I love your list of movies. I have watched Rudy (even if not an Irish fan), I loved Brian's Song...

Gale Sayers as he accepted the Halas award telling the crowd about his friend Brian Piccolo and his courage, then when the music comes on Billy Dee Williams says:

I love Brian Piccolo. And I'd like all of you to love him too. And so tonight, when you hit your knees, please ask God to love him.

That is the greatest line of a movie I have ever heard. For an athlete to be on top of his game yet know what is more important, what a theory eh? (Wish this era of athletes would do the same!)

Good one, A.E.M. I'd have to think a bit about my favorite line.
