My top 18 performing articles of all-time were all written in 2012, and No. 5 on the list came as a result of a special assignment from Yahoo! Sports in March, asking me to create my own sports bracket in the spirit of March Madness brackets.
I've always enjoyed examining sports teams' logos, and over my years of following sports, I've developed some favorites. So for this assignment, my sports bracket was on team logos. I grouped 16 teams' logos into four regions -- NFL, NHL, MLB, and arena football -- and whittled them down from there.
It was a purely subjective piece and a blatant ploy to expose people to arena football, so I wasn't particularly optimistic that it would perform well. But it was a fun assignment to write, so I went ahead with it.
Much to my surprise, it has garnered 46,465 page views since its original publication date of March 14, 2012.
So without further ado, here is my Sweet Sixteen of Sports Logos:
Next up: the No. 4 article of 2012 -- one of several Super Bowl articles that performed well in 2012.
