All fans have greater access to sports than ever before, but the coverage and analysis of major professional sports primarily serves the interests of die-hard fans. There are 175+ million casual sports fans in the United States, and billions more worldwide, that are being left out of the sports conversation.
Thinking About Sports explains core sports concepts, provides important context about match ups, and shares insights to help fans better understand and enjoy the game. We provide original and curated content, including commentary from experts - coaches, current and former athletes, media, and other fans. Our goal is to help all fans develop a better appreciation for and understanding of sports by giving them the information and experiences they want and need to enjoy the game.
