AOL Launches Spanish-Language Sports Blog

Filed as News on August 7, 2008 8:41 am

The guys at work are always going nuts about football. Honestly, I have no clue what they are talking about. The same way I have no idea what Fánaticos is talking about. Perhaps that’s because my Spanish-speaking education ended in the eighth grade.

AOL has launched a new blog under their AOL Latino division. The
Spanish-language blog covers football/soccer, baseball and boxing from the United States, Mexico, Latin America and Spain.

Nine sports bloggers comprise the editorial launch team.

Interestingly enough, the ads served are in English, while all of the content is in Spanish. Even more interesting is the fact that AOL is launching a new blog after shutting down some other venues due to ‘budget cuts.’ I wonder if these new bloggers are working for free?

    It is “Fanáticos”, move the accent one “a” to the right.
