Top Nine Sports Blog Names

By Lou DiPietro

There are seemingly zillions of sports blogs on the internet, and while content is of course king, having a catchy name that people remember is half the battle. Sure, "Joe's Sports Blog" gets the point across, but even if said Joe is the most knowledgeable sports historian on the planet, he still might not get people as excited as, say "Joe Knows Sports" might.

Here at The Niner, we appreciate those men and women who make their living (or live out their hobbyist dreams) writing about sports on the internet - but these nine sets of folks featured here get extra points for knowing that the sizzle sells just as well as the steak.

  • TIRICO SUAVE

    This blog sure isn't a one-hit wonder, as it features a "gangsta" photo of namesake Mike Tirico and also employs a writer named "Harvey Bars" - who is either in a League of His Own or completely nuts depending on how you view it.

  • FIVE TOOL TOOL

    DMTShooter's blog says it's "The Sports Blog That Loves You Back." That's what our last blog affair said too… *sniff*

  • PITTSBURGH SPORTS AND MINI PONIES

    This blog lives up to its name, as its two subjects are - you guessed it - Pittsburgh sports and mini ponies. And, thanks to the Pirates' resurgence, there's a lot less mini-horse than usual this summer!

  • FRIENDS OF THE PROGRAM

    It's sports and culture…all under the table of course. No word on whether or not Nick Nolte authorized them to woo potential writers with a fully loaded Lexus.

  • ANYTHING ON YAHOO! SPORTS

    Our friends at Yahoo have many blogs whose names are relevant and catchy, like "Shutdown Corner" and "Ball Don't Lie." We just hope they gave Rasheed Wallace props for coining the latter, because you wouldn't like 'Sheed when he's angry.

  • SPORTS CRACKLE POP

    Blog Krispies!

  • FIVE OUNCES OF PAIN

    If you take the name of this MMA blog and add in 275 pounds of South Dakota-bred beef, you've got the recipe for a Brock Lesnar Knuckle Sandwich.

  • PIPPEN AIN'T EASY

    I don't know, Mr. Editor of this Chicago Bulls/NBA blog, because six rings and a spot on the NBA's 50 Greatest Players list says differently.

  • KISSING SUZY KOLBER

    And at No. 1 we have this gem born from one of Monday Night Football's most infamous incidents. Good thing they didn't choose to honor Dennis Miller too, because "Osculating Suzy Kolber" just doesn't have the same ring.
