Viva el sports blog!

Philip Barron: Even if you're not a genuine sports fan, you can still enjoy great sports writing on the Web.
While it's fairly well established that I am the worst sports fan ever, barely managing even casual interest except as an unabashed frontrunner, I do greatly admire actual sports fans, especially those who widely share their interest. Knowledge of the game in question combined with passion always makes for genuinely interesting writing. A penchant for unvarnished criticism (when warranted) of teams or individual players also helps. This is what you'll find every day in the blog of record for St. Louis' National League ballclub, Viva El Birdos. It's always most entertaining to check in on good sports blogs when a team is struggling, as made evident by this offering by VEB mainstay Larry Borowski. Yesterday's topic: bad baserunning.
