At first, it might seem out of place for a sports website to venture out and cover music. You may be see us on Twitter and asking yourself “why are they talking about a musical artist?” The answer is simple. When you really think about it, music is an integral part of the fabric of sport.
Whether it’s a high school marching band, college fight songs and buzz songs, baseball or wrestling entrance music, or the AP playing heavy metal – or symphonic deathcore, to be precise – at a hockey game, music is everywhere in the sport.
The intersection of sport and music
So why should you go to one place for your sports coverage and then go to a specific music website to read album reviews? Why should you come to us to find out what’s going on at training camp, then head to an entirely different site to see a band’s entire discography ranked from worst to first?
You should not ! And that’s the ultimate goal here at Around the Block Network. We want to be your one-stop entertainment center! We want to be at the intersection of sport and music.
That’s why you’re going to see someone tweeting about the Giants and their local Baltimore teams talking about a hot new artist they like. That’s why you’re going to find two Dolphins fans and one Lions fan promoting a heavy metal-focused podcast. Because at the end of the day, we all love sports and we all love music. So why shouldn’t you be able to get reviews and opinions on both in one place?
It may seem strange at first, but should it? We’d say it shouldn’t be, and we hope you agree! Who knows, maybe one day in the future this will become normal and normal content strategy for the course. For now, ATB is here to give you the latest news on all your passions. Stay tuned and enjoy the ride!
