What do you get when you combine sports and social media? Bleacher Report! Launched in 2007 and has since grown into one of the most popular online sports website in the US. Like many, I first had my doubts about the credibility of the website and whether it was to be taken seriously with it's lack of sports journalism and content, but somehow, overtime, the website has found it's niche.

At first glance, Bleacher Report seems to be a cut and dry website. It has a very minimal feel, with it's front page containing top-heavy links, with very few sports writing and the rest of it's page containing videos and social media posts. It's definitely a different approach compared to other main sports websites such as ESPN or SI.com. But what Bleacher Reports lacks of in sports writing, thrives in simplicity with it's social media content and short clip videos.

Despite lacking short in the sports journalism section, Bleacher Report still covers a wide array of sports leagues and recently added a B/R live service. It's service featuring original studio programming, NBA League Pass, UEFA Champions League, PGA Championships, NCAA Championships, etc..It's a stream service offering both subscription and per-event pricing option.

Probably my favorite section of the website is B/R Mag. It's basically a sports blog page and this is where Bleacher Reports contributing writers gets to shine on a wide variety of subject. It's a great read for any sports fans.

In closing, I have a love/hate relationship with Bleacher Report and like the majority, we sometimes get use to the typical sports websites "look" and how it's suppose to be presented. This is where BR thrives and their "different" approach, is how they have made their mark in the industry. Bravo!
