Revolution Sports is a great way to turn your site into a major sports news/information authority. Use the homepage features to showcase Baseball, Football, Basketball, Hockey or any other of your favorite sports. Revolution Sports is compatible with WordPress 2.3.2+.
The Revolution Sports theme is a widget-ready, customizable theme that provide ideal solutions for online magazines, online newspapers and other websites.
In my opinion, it’s worth spending the $80 and buying this template (or one of the other premium WordPress themes). I’ve personally purchased a few myself and was very happy doing so. Not only did it almost instantly give my site a professional look, it also freed up my time for web site strategy vs design.
