Flipboard For Sports Fans

Inside Flipboard / September 12, 2013

Some of the best sports coverage in the world comes from you, the true fan. You are obsessive about your team; nothing escapes your attention. You follow every detail about your team, every player’s victories, every injury and imbroglio—in season and off. You do it in any weather, at home, work or even on vacation. Who knows why you do it—but we salute your fanaticism for the gift it is. So to you, the sports fan, we say: there is nothing better than Flipboard magazines.

Here are some ways you can use them, and take one for the team:
