One of the main reasons I started Miner Rush was to provide a new resource for Miner fans living away from El Paso. Anybody out there who lives outside the 915 knows what I'm talking about; UTEP coverage is terrible. Information was sparse and rarely updated and I wanted to help change that. The Rush is coming along very well in these early months (we launched February 16, 2010), and with SBN's incredible leadership, I know that the future is even brighter. SBNation already has over 250 sports blogs for pro and college teams but isn't limited there. Like MMA? Then you have to check out Bloody Elbow. SBNation covers it all.
If you want to know more about the guys that started it all, check out this feature from the New York Times on Jim Bankoff and Tyler Bleszinksi.
SBNation is constantly working to improve the fan experience and I'm excited to help announce that SBN's new regional sites started rolling out today. You can also expect some new features to begin appearing on the blog in the coming days.
The first Texas sites, Dallas and Houston, will launch June 10, 2010.
