SB Nation featured blogs for February 2016

New, 2 comments

Every month we feature four of our 300+ blogs that have best exemplified what it is we stand for -- smart, funny, engaging, emotional reactions to the teams we love and the fans who love them. Here are the four we've picked that stood above the rest in February 2016.

We have so many dang good blogs. Here are four of them to check out this month.

Mile High Report | Denver Broncos  & Cat Scratch Reader | Carolina Panthers

It seems fitting this week we highlight our Broncos blog Mile High Report and our Panthers blog Cat Scratch Reader. MHR is the veteran of the group having been to the Super Bowl just two years before. Laurie Lattimore-Volkmann from MHR is in San Francisco for the week covering the sights and sounds. CSR gets to cover Cam Newton, which looks like a lot of fun.

One blog won't be so happy after Sunday night but they'll both have it covered.

Denver Stiffs | Denver Nuggets

In any given season there are good teams and there are bad teams. Fans are interested in both and SB Nation sites like Denver Stiffs know how to use their deep franchise knowledge and established relationships to deliver the goods.

A perfect example is this story from writer Jeffrey Morton that explores the reasons behind team's low attendance. In another excellent piece, site founder Andrew Feinstein explains what's going on with the Nuggets' needed culture change.

Burgundy Wave | Colorado Rapids

Burgundy Wave has the misfortune of covering the Colorado Rapids, a team that is quickly becoming one of the most frustrating in MLS. Despite a relatively recent MLS Cup win, the teams seems to be adrift with no direction and seemingly no plan to improve.

Under the guidance of John Rosch, BW has embraced that frustration and built quit an audience in the process. These two pieces probably best encapsulate the emotions that are driving the site right now.

Hockey Wilderness | Minnesota Wild

Hockey Wilderness has turned into more than just a Minnesota Wild blog. They've become a full-on Minnesota hockey blog, covering the NHL, women's hockey, college and even high school level play in the state.

One of the coolest things they've done recently is a two-part series on the cost of winning the Stanley Cup, breaking down what the salary cap looks like for contending Stanley Cup teams this season, and also what that cap looked like for teams who have won in the past. It's fantastic analysis and just great stuff from HW -- more than just a Minnesota Wild blog.

★★★

Please give a big round of applause to these fantastic sites. Congratulations to our site managers and to their amazing staffs and communities that make this all possible. Wonderful work y'all!
