"Dedicated to taking scraps of truth and turning them into absurdist nonsense." is a daily Web publication offering objective (some might say satiric), reality-based (some might say spoofish) reporting and commentary on sports and the entertaining players, owners, fans, acolytes and buffoons who inhabit that world. Featuring incisive, strong-minded and witty writing from a team of award-winning journalists (some might say malcontents), powerful videos and surround-sound where available, eTrueSports promises no sincerity ever ... and delivers.
