For big-time sports fans, there is no shortage of options when it comes to getting sports information. Even for diehards, trying to keep up with all of them is impossible. True story: my cousin has kept every single hard copy of Sports Illustrated from the past 20+ years, and vows that he will read them all, cover to cover. I think he’s up to the early 2000’s. The things sports fans do to get their fix.

Moneyball might make for a great story or movie, but statistical analysis doesn't always work….just ask Shane Battier.

But let’s call a spade a spade: you often have to wade through a lot of muck to find the good stuff, and who has time for that? This is where StumbleUpon comes in – to find out how wide the world of sports really is, you can tailor your stumbling experience to only see sports content by changing your topics and interests.

You can create your own interests on the Manage Interests page. Just click "edit" next to the Interests section of your logged-in homepage to get there.


For example, I have dozens of sports related topics and interests, including Basketball, Bill Simmons, Chicago Bulls, Michael Jordan, Golf, John Feinstein, American Football, Ryder Cup, Baseball, Tennis, and Rory McIlroy. They’ve led me to gems like these:

If you're a golf geek like me, you'll like this web page that takes you for a tour of Nike Golf's facilities.

Whether you’re into baseball or cricket, highlights or movie clips, watching or playing yourself – chances are that StumbleUpon will have something for you (pro tip: try our new Explore Box). And when you see something great, pay it forward and give it a thumbs up.  Your fellow Stumblers will thank you (and maybe give you a follow).

Clear eyes, full heart, great stumbles, can’t lose!
