App Of The Week #5

February 11, 2010

This weeks app is ESPN ScoreCenter. The ScoreCenter app allows you to see all the scores from all the games you want to see divided by league. All of the games are divided into an easy to understand layout.  If you are like me, and are always out during football games or can’t catch a baseball game, then this would be the app for you. With real time updates, you always have the most current score. You can also use the ESPN Mobile Web feature to see every aspect of the game from recent plays to the field view. The favorite teams feature is my personal favorite part of this app. You pick your favorite teams and go to the league page , and your team is highlighted right on top. I would highly suggest this app if you are even a casual fan of any sport.

Ballpark Ambiance or Good Team?

July 19, 2009

I went to the Padres game today, and everything was fine. I got to see my first game from a ballpark suite, and being in Pectco Park, you know it had to be nice.  There was all sorts of food, The balcony on suite 18, right above 3rd base had an amazing view, and it was an overall great experience. But, while I was up there, the Pads were down on the field getting their asses kicked. So, my question to you is, is it worth having a great new stadium (Petco is now 5 years old (2004 opening year)) and having a losing baseball team OR is it better to have a winning baseball team and a bad park? I like having the 3rd newest stadium in the Major Leagues, but I just can’t stand having the freakin Padres the way they are right now in there. My solution: give the Chargers Petco! Just kidding. But seriously, the Bolts deserve a brand new stadium.

Come on Sports Networks!

July 15, 2009

So, I was watching the Home Run Derby (on ESPN) and I noticed when you watch sports on ESPN, your getting 1/3 of the sport you’re trying to watch and 2/3 crap interviews. It’s annoying, and I’d even say that’s an understatement. I missed seeing Adrian Gonzalez, which we all know I’ve been waiting to watch (if you’ve been reading), and Albert Pujols. Not cool. It’s either they’re in a little box in corner of your screen, or they’re just not there at all. I’m not looking forward to any Chargers games on Fox or ESPN, I’ll only see the last minute of it! Ok, now I’m just exaggerating. But I don’t know anyone who likes seeing interviews instead of the event you tuned into Fox/ESPN/NBC to watch.  

All Star Game Score

July 14, 2009

Final score:
AL 4
NL 3

Oh well, my National Leaguers lost again. Next year, though. I didn’t get a chance to watch the game, but I saw Curtis Granderson hit a triple late in the game to win it. I’m also disappointed with Adrian Gonzalez (only 2 home runs in the Home Run Derby) and even more disappointed with Fox. I’ll save the Fox thing for tommorows post. Anyway, please exuse my spelling in this post. I’m writing it on my iPhone and I’m not sure the spell check works too well on the WordPress app.

NL Home Run Derby Contestants

July 7, 2009

Last night I found the NL Home Run Derby contestants, and I got kind of excited when I saw my favorite player on the list. Here it is:

Albert Pujols – 1B – St. Louis Cardinals

Prince Fielder – 1B – Milwaukee Brewers

Adrian Gonzalez – 1B – San Diego Padres

Ryan Howard – 1B – Philadelphia Phillies

This seems like it’s going to be a great Home Run Derby, and I’m glad to see Adrian in there. I’ll see if I can get the AL.
