The Top 10 Articles I've Read on Bleacher Report That You Should Know About
I've been a member of Bleacher Report for well over a year now and there have been a number of articles that have stuck in my mind. So, I decided to take a look at the top 10 articles I've read on Bleacher Report.
Some of the stories were inspirational and others were more focused on educating the readers on a particular subject.
Number 10: Zander Freund
Freund's article went into detail on the decision not to invite Graham Harrell to the Heisman Trophy ceremony even though Harrell was one of the four leading candidates for the award.
Here's the link to the article http://bleacherreport.com/articles/91884-national-disgrace-graham-harrell-told-to-stay-home-on-heisman-night
Number 9: Cameon Shiflett
Shiflett wrote an article on how colleges are now visiting local hospitals to gain motivation for a big game. She uses the example of Ciron Black and tells his story.
While Shiflett may have used only one example it was definitely powerful. Similar situations can be found in all varieties of sport. The story of what the Portland Trailblazers did for a dying fan or how Kurt Suzuki and Orlando Cabrera helped raise money for Jon Wilhite, the only survivor of the car crash that killed Angles pitcher Nick Adenhardt.
Number 8: Blaine Spence
Spence's article started out as a tribute to Bill Walsh and other athletes who have battled cancer. The article also shed light on Relay for Life.

Number 7: Andrew Nuschler
Nuschler does a great job of analyzing what is wrong with the NBA. He also identifies what makes the NBA so hard to watch.

Number 4: Bryn Swartz's
It's not everyday that a long distance runner makes any kind of headlines.
It actually seems that the most press running has gotten recently was when the three people died in a half marathon race in Detroit, MI.
This article addresses the "Best Athlete You've Never Heard Of."

Number 2: Lisa Horne's
This article addresses the issue of women interviewing players in the locker room.
Part of what made the article so interesting was that Horne used her own experience when writing the article.
