It's March already and with the turning of the calendar, that means that I get the honor of showing you four new fantastic blogs that have been doing great work over the last month. We have some outstanding sites for you to peruse this month. Enjoy!
Indy Cornrows has been a perfect compliment for the culture of the midwestern, hardnose Pacers team they cover. Every day, every year, Tom Lewis and his fine crew have been grinding it out as their team went through a myriad of franchise ups and downs. The team is on the rise and so is Indy Cornrows with great daily game coverage, timely and fantastic analysis, and fun sharable content.
Writing about Chivas USA can be an often thankless job. As you may or may not know, it is by far the least popular team in MLS and virtually every attention-grabbing headline is for something that has gone wrong and/or made the club and its fans a laughing stock. This weeks' news was not exactly the equivalent of being showered in glory, but at least people were genuinely happy to learn that the team had been sold to MLS. Alicia Rodriguez and The Goat Parade weren't content to write a handful of stories about this, though. Alicia covered just about every conceivable angle with the coup de grace being her longform piece looking through Jorge Vergara's ownership. It was truly a thing of beauty and something the entire network should be proud of.
Garnet and Black Attack continue to be leaders amongst SB Nation's College Sports properties. GABA has been a model destination site in the way they've ramped up their coverage to tackle sports beyond football (even during a difficult basketball season at a school that's football crazed), and absolutely killed National Signing Day 2014, establishing themselves as the go-to for South Carolina Gamecock fans in the process. Whether you want smart think pieces, or just want to casually follow SC via social media, if you're a South Carolina fan, you'd be remiss to miss out on Garnet & Black Attack.
Brandon Lee Gowton officially took over Bleeding Green Nation, our Eagles blog, last August but he manages the site like he's been doing it for years. From their Combine coverage to the Eagles dropping $100 million in one day, Brandon and his excellent team of contributors have had every aspect covered. There are lots of people writing about the NFL so it's hard to come up with original angles, which they do frequently. Among the many talented contributors at BGN, Mike Kaye in particular has had a nice run of original interviews and reporting. Congrats to everyone who makes BGN an excellent Eagles blog!
And that's it for March. Enjoy. Spring is right around the corner as is baseball. It's a beautiful month.
