It Is Our Birthday

Massive news in the sports media landscape today. On May 18, 2020, Untimed Down Sports made its raucous debut and arguably changed the blog game forever. UDS put the entire internet on notice by starting a sports & entertainment blog when there literally were no sports happening. A new sheriff was in town, and things were never the same.

A look back on how we got started seemed appropriate on such a celebratory day.

We started off with a flurry of blogs hotter than 1,000 suns; an introduction of who we are, hot takes on Russell Wilson and breakfast, and a love letter to The Last Dance.

We were off and running after that, presenting our weekly wrap up of the week that was in sports with Sunday State of Mind, as well as reoccurring series’ of The Aughts Hot or Not and Who Wore It Best.

It was all gas and no brakes at that point, an no one was safe. Especially not Friends, shoe tying practices, and cults. We showed love to those who deserved it, including Joe Kelly, the NBA Dunk Contest, Odell Beckham Jr., and Tyrod Taylor. All of that, and so much more made what was a shitty year just a bit more tolerable.

Over 100 blogs posted, a few Twitter trolls retweeted, and still learning how to run a damn website; but we’re just getting started.

We truly appreciate our growing social media following and expanding page view numbers. So keep rocking with us, and we’ll keep trying our best to give you a reason to do so.

Thank you!

What Better Time to Launch a Sports Blog than When Hardly Any Sports are Happening?

Here goes nothin’.

What are we trying to do here? We’re trying to create content that will hopefully make you laugh, maybe make you think, and for sure make you call us out when we’re way off the mark or straight up wrong; which will 100% happen at some point.

We’re hoping to have a few recurring blog concepts, but otherwise going to try and keep this thing a fairly open playing field. A little more on that below.

What’s in a name? Untimed Down Sports.

In the greatest sport America has to offer (and that will likely will be outlawed in 20 years with continued CTE research), an untimed down happens in a football game when the clock hits 0:00 and a defensive penalty simultaneously occurs.

This unlikely scenario leads to an untimed down; a down with no time limits, and a play that any-god-damned thing can happen. That’s exactly what we’re shooting for here. We of course have “sports” in our title, but we’re not going to pigeon hole ourselves into only to area. We’re dumb, but not that dumb.

Pop culture, music, art, or the fact that koalas have fingerprints. We’re here for all of it, and we hope that you will be too.

Throw us a pity follow on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook as well as any feedback or ideas you might have. This thing could last a month or 50 years, who the hell knows.

Let’s go!
