Next stop, ESPN!
Just an fyi, anyone can write for the Yahoo Contributor Network, but it doesn't mean it will be published on Yahoo, especially Yahoo Sports. Writers are selected based on previous high quality articles in a particular subject, then they have several test assignments, and if they do well on those, they might get a particular "beat" for sports in a specific category. The articles are still edited and only published if they meet the qualifications. The writer of the disc golf articles is a friend of mine and I've been trying to get into Yahoo myself but it's a lot harder than I thought it would be. K.C. was writing for YCN for over a year and a half before getting the beat assignments.
If I can get in, I would love to write articles on disc golf, and if anyone else here is a good writer and a disc golf player you should check it out.
