‘SB Nation’ Launches Regional LA Sports Site


Perhaps spurred on by ESPN’s recent entry into the world of regional online sports content, the popular sports blog SB Nation has launched a regional LA site, SB nation Los Angeles, covering sports news in and around the Southland.

Here’s what editor Eric Stephen had to say about the new site:

We have assembled quite a staff of writers, all of whom you may have read on various SB Nation blogs. Our great Los Angeles blogs True Blue LA, Halos Heaven, Silver Screen and Roll, Clips Nation, Anaheim Calling, Jewels From The Crown, Conquest Chronicles, and Bruins Nation will continue to provide high quality, in depth coverage of L.A. sports, including many of the same writers you will see here. Be sure to find out more information on our staff on the bottom left corner of the page.

The Red Carpet is the blog portion of the site, where we will provide short commentary, links, stories, and videos compiled by the SB Nation Los Angeles staff.

We will have a weekly Top Five, where we explore and rank various things related to Los Angeles sports. Our first foray is a look at the top five most popular athletes in Los Angeles sports.

Yeah, about that last part — at first glance this Fishie sees an awful lot of lists about “best” this and “top” that on the site. Makes us a little nervous, but we’re total dude when it comes to sports, so we’re willing to give it a shot.
