This is the project I’ve been working on for about a month now. It’s going to launch on the day of the opening ceremonies in London and I’m really pumped. Essentially, it’s going to be a daily collection of the best sports stories on the web (sort of like Longform, but for sports) that I’m building so you guys (and girls…and your friends!) always have something good to read whether you’re bored in class, stuck on the train home, or just hanging out on the couch at night.
Feel free to follow on Twitter at @sports_reads and sign up to hear more about the launch in July. Also, if you find a great story or just something you think was excellently written, feel free to tweet it and tag it with the #SportsReads hashtag. That will really help me save time looking for stories and give you a stake in the maintenance of what, I hope, is a really cool website. (Sports Reads)
