Looking for pitches on off-the-beaten-path sporting events (1000-2000 words) and profiles of athletes or fans who have atypical stories that resonate universally (any length). Pro tip: we publish a high volume of content daily from a fairly large staff of experts. Freelance pitches that stand out the most, and get greenlit the fastest, are shorter (think 500-1000 words) and focus on telling our audience about something fun or offbeat that will help them better appreciate sports.
