If you’re a sports fan, you should consider writing for the Bleacher Report. They just put a call out for new writers at their great site. They have an excellent incentive program with medals and badges for categories such as hot reads, great debate, and lead story. Think about writing for b/r. Seriously, it is a well-managed sports lounge. Their folks know their schports schtuff. And, of course, the counter-argument: Bleacher Report Is The Worst Thing In The History Of Journalism.
