HIT the LINKS: Awful Announcing











Throughout my many years playing this game, I have come across many websites that specialize in fantasy sports. I saved them all and many of them are included in the

FANFOOD Fantasy Baseball Tools


Each week a different website, twitter feed or mobile application will be highlighted and reviewed for you before you “HIT the LINKS”.


This week I ask you to check out Awful Announcing.com.


Awful Announcing is Sports Blog started by Maryland native and James Madison University graduate Brian Powell. Powell got his start in the Sports Arena as an intern for the WUSA’s Philadelphia Charge and went onto work for the Washington Wizards in early 2004. While those jobs were definitely rewarding they weren’t exactly paying the bills and Powell moved into marketing for a large Homebuilder in the Washington DC Area before starting this website in May of 2006. In early 2007 Powell also signed on to be one of the many outstanding contributors to the Sporting News’ new blogging project. There he provided Weekend Sports Television previews and reviews as well as many other articles throughout the week.

Started as a hobby, Awful Announcing quickly became one of the most talked about and linked blogs on the Internet. The site focuses mainly on the perils and follies of the Sports Media, but also critiques and reviews those within the Sports World. The site has been mentioned on SportsCenter, ESPN Radio, WFAN, and various newspapers throughout the country. AA was also an honorable mention for Best Non-Corporate Sports Web Site in SI.com Richard Deitsch’s annual Media Awards in 2007. The website is also widely known for a penchant of finding videos like no other and catching media members in humorous and/or shocking moments. The site prides itself on having items that no other outlet does and will continue to do so for years to come.

Some of the Sports stories credited to or broken by AA.com include: The USC Song Girl Incident, The Dana Jacobson Vodka Incident, The On-Air Breakdown of Yankee Announcer Suzyn Waldman, Mike Golic’s On-Air Admission of Steroid Use, Matt Vasgersian Trashing The City Of St. Louis, and Eric Cartman Introducing The Colorado Buffaloes

In August 2010, after a brief hiatus, the Bloguin Network acquired Awful Announcing from Brian Powell. Powell will maintain a role with the site, but the heavy lifting will now be done by Matt Yoder, Ben Koo and the rest of the AA staff listed on the front page.
