A Brief Blog Profile: With Leather

by Thomas Hynes


With Leather is the sports arm from the Uproxx family of blogs. On the outset, you are guaranteed two things. One, they probably love sports a lot. And two, they probably use some foul language from time to time. At this point, you (or your mom) might be saying, "That sort of talk belongs in the locker room!" Well, hey, look. This is a sports blog. And sometimes, the content on there isn't for everyone.

Ok, now that we've moved past the disclaimer, let me just say that I love this blog. With Leather is a snarky, yet still passionate and honest alternative to the evening news sports report. it's the grown-up and unrestrained online heir to the New York City back pages. On With Leather you'll read about the NBA's new twitter strategy as well catch a sneak peek of the Miami Marlins new home run statue. You can even check in on the dog show scene on China. Plus, fictional sports hero, Kenny Powers seems to be on every page here. And that's got to be worth something.

While it's true, you might not ever see a box score on here, you'll still be plenty entertained. You can read about how many rebounds Ron Artest has or you can read something called, "The Gospel According to Ron Artest." For better or worse, and as crazy as this may sound, sometimes there really is more to sports than the final score.

News Widget

Our widget allows you to display PR Newswire content on your site with very little back-end programming required.  You not only get the headline, but also the body of text of the news release, keeping the user on your site at all times.  In order to do so, the difference between our Widget and other widgets is at the end of the sign-up process, you will be provided with two pieces of source code -- one for the page where the Widget itself will be displayed and one for the pages that will display the body of text of each news release.  In addition, the sign-up process allows you to have 100 percent control over every aspect of the Widget's appearance, so that the Widget can blend in fully with the look and feel of your site. Still not convinced? Here's what one blogger had to say about the widget.
