Welcome to Charlotte Sports Blog! The blog that is 100% dedicated to professional sports in the Charlotte, NC market.
This blog has been something I have wanted to do for a while, but admittedly, it’s taken some time to get it going. I started writing a couple of posts around the 2017 NBA all star break when I got the blog and domain set up, but the timing felt off so I scrapped it. When contemplating how and when to really launch the blog, it was pretty clear that the correct timing was going to be important when it came to building momentum.
At the core of it, the blog will be dedicated to professional sports in Charlotte, NC namely the Panthers and the Hornets. As a small market in the sports landscape, the Panthers and the Hornets rarely get coverage from the national outlets and there isn’t enough local coverage around that typically quenches the thirst of the reader for content. Now I’m not a journalist and I don’t claim to have any legitimate sources, but breaking news or providing reported speculation of team news is not the goal of this blog.
My idea of this blog is to give fans of both the Panthers and the Hornets a place to read about both teams from the view of the common fan. Whether it’s a game recap, statistical analysis, media hot takes, free agency & draft news or just anything team related, I will strive to have that content here and available to you.
I’ve been chomping at the bit for months to put this blog in motion. I sat through both league drafts and free agency periods as I waited for the right time to provide content. Ultimately, I felt that the best time to begin a blog would be at the beginning of a season. With training camp set to kick off the new NFL season this week, now is as good a time as any to get going.
I’m looking forward to following along the story lines with all of you and am excited to share my takes here.
Check back for more in the coming days!
