Looks like a config issue to me:

dig +trace blog.mysportsite.com

mysportsite.com.	172800	IN	NS	ns1.mysportsite.com.
mysportsite.com.	172800	IN	NS	ns2.mysportsite.com.
;; Received 106 bytes from in 316 ms

mysportsite.com.	3600	IN	SOA	ns1.mysportsite.com.
support.mysportsite.com. 0 10800 3600 604800 3600
;; Received 86 bytes from in 220 ms

# dig +short blog.mysportsite.com @ns1.mysportsite.com
# dig +short blog.mysportsite.com @ns2.mysportsite.com
