If it has to do with New Haven and sports, you'll read about it here. Yale, Quinnipiac, New Haven, Southern Connecticut, Albertus Magnus, high schools, the New Haven Open, and Walter Camp to name a few. Plus we'll give you a look at the best to see each day.

New Haven is quite an interesting place when it comes to sports.

This is where American football as we know it came to be.

It's where the inspiration for major college football venues was built in 1914, underground to the amazement of many.

They say the first 5-on-5 college basketball game was played here and many argue the first time a curveball was thrown, it was done so by a New Havener.

Yale has won more golf titles than any NCAA institution.

Hillhouse has won as many state titles in boys basketball as anyone in the nation.

Year after year high schools in our area produce state champions in an array of sports.

Southern Connecticut and New Haven have both won national titles in Division II women's basketball. The Owls have also won more soccer titles than any Division II program.

Yale is overflowing with tradition and Quinnipiac's new arena is as nice an athletic building as you'll find.

College hockey: Every weekend top teams are in our backyard at Yale and Quinnipiac.

Each year the city plays host to the very best college football players in January for the Walter Camp Football Foundation All-America Awards Dinner.

We have a combined men's and women's tennis tournament the week before the final Grand Slam of the year.

The 20K national championships take place here each year in the New Haven Road Race.

We're 30 minutes from a PGA Golf stop, and a little over an hour from the best college basketball programs in the nation.

Then throw in the professional sports scene and watch for the chairs flying between Yankees, Mets and Red Sox fans, Celtics and Knicks followers and Giants, Jets and Patriots diehards.

As you can see, it keeps us quite busy.

We will share our opinions on the New Haven sports scene and open up our thought process for coverage and we'll have some fun introducing you to some members of the staff here, who like you argue over the Yankees, Red Sox and Mets, and get consumed by fantasy football and baseball.

We want to hear your ideas, your comments and suggestions.

So come back and visit us for the latest in a Haven of Sports.
