About Bacon Sports
What is Bacon Sports?
We are a sports comedy site that wants to break the mold out of what you expect from a sports website. We pride ourselves on generating unique sports comedy content that combines pop culture, nostalgia, and a love of jerseys. We love interacting with fans and making you part of the content. If you are looking for fresh and funny sports content with an attention to detail and a throwback twist then you’ve come to the right place.
What’s up with the name?
We combined two of the greatest things on earth: bacon and sports. Most people who love sports also love bacon. We really love both of them…a lot.
When can I expect posts?
We try and to get you at least one or two article, jersey, or video posts per weekday (M-F). On the weekends we are as consistent as Tony Romo in crunch time. Sometimes we’ll have a lot, other times not so much.
What’s up with the random jersey?
We are the number one destination for all your Hoopster and jersey enthusiast needs. We grew up in the 80’s/90’s and loved the MJ/Dominique era of the NBA. Rocking a random jerseys flexes your sports knowledge muscles. There’s nothing cool about rocking a Lebron James jersey (if you aren’t a Cavs fan) but there’s definitely something awesome about rocking a Rony Seikaly jersey.
If you see someone rocking a random jersey on the street, at a bar, or at a game then definitely send it to us. If it’s good enough we’ll post it and give you credit for it.
Rob Cressy, Founder
I am an alum of the Second City Improv training program in Chicago (and currently reside there), have a Steelers tattoo, I love gambling on football, I’ve watched arm wrestling, darts, and trick pool on ESPN, I’ve been in a college fantasy football league for 8 years (all teams, not just BCS), and I love when Doc Emrick announces a game. I buy Phil Steele’s College Football preview every year on the day it comes out, I am a proponent of the DH, NBA Jams is my favorite video game ever, and I think when God created me he took out the directions and important dates part of my brain and added in a few extra doses of sports knowledge.
