I thought it might be helpful to have a thread in which we list where we like to go for our sports stories and information. We've had a lot of people in the NHL thread mention they've only started paying attention to hockey in the past year or two for instance, while I myself have gotten more into basketball but really don't know who's a reputable source and who's full of shit. FOCUS: List your favorite sports resources on the internet. It can be blogs, podcasts, twitter feeds, whatever. Try to provide a short description for us too. Don't list anything incredibly obvious like ESPN or SI unless you link to a specific writer or show. Hockey: http://sports.yahoo.com/nhl/blog/puck_daddy - A pretty thorough blog that lists in-depth previews and re-caps in addition to feature stories and random columns. Bonus points in my book for having a weekly NCAA hockey post. http://www.spectorshockey.net/ - Dedicated to free agent and trade rumors. http://www.nhlnumbers.com/ - Great site listing players contracts and salary cap figures. http://mirtle.blogspot.com/ now becoming http://www.fromtherink.com/ - Does a good job of collecting local stories of interest while also providing his own engaging and original content. General Sports: http://ballhype.com/blogs/ - Tries to "rank" blogs from most sports by how many posts they do a week, how many visitors they get, and how many other sites link to them. Not the best resource because a lot of sites are home team (though some of these still do league-wide stories) and it doesn't give you a feel for how knowledgeable they really are.
