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.

LT Throws in the Towel

February 5, 2010

Well, what we were all expecting is finally here. Yesterday LaDanian Tomlinson said he doesn’t want to play for the Chargers anymore. In a radio interview this week he stated that he felt disconnected and questioned the commitments of some of the players. If you can’t tell, he doesn’t want to go quietly.

“I don’t know what it is,” he said. “We’re (at) the point where these guys that come into the league, it’s not about the same values no more. It’s not about football, the things that you’re taught — faith, family, football. To them, it’s notabout that no more. It’s the name … It’s ‘me.’ And that’s the thing that’s so disappointing to me, because I can’t deal with that no more. If that’s going to be allowed I just can’t deal with that type of stuff.”

Co host Scott Kaplan of the “Scott and BR Show” on XX Sports Radio asked LT about his disappointment as a team leader, and in some of the things in the Chargers playoff loss.

“Some of this I feel like is taken out of my hands,” Tomlinson said. “You said a leader and all this kind of stuff, but there was a big part of this year, where for whatever reason, I didn’t feel connected as far as the team, the unity, togetherness, family. I didn’t feel that at times in the season. There were times that I did. But I’m saying that was a problem in the locker room, I felt like. Just my opinion.”

Tomlinson said he was as happy this season as he had been in some time, saying he felt the current Chargers team cost him his best chance at a Super Bowl. A playoff loss, a game in which the team committed numerous uncharger-like mistakes, changed his thinking.

The way I think of it, it would be tough to be LT. He used to be the face of the Chargers. The Chargers were HIS team. But, now Philip Rivers is the team leader, and LaDanian is no longer as big of a name as it used to be. I don’t think he wants to take the pay cut, or share the stardom either. When you think San Diego Chargers, you don’t think LT anymore. You think Philip Rivers, Darren Sproles & Vincent Jackson. That would be hard on any declining NFL stars ego.

I don’t know what us football fans are supposed to think. I don’t think the Chargers will be a very different team without him, as he wasn’t getting a lot of playing time anyway. Maybe the Bolts wont choke this year.


App Of The Week #1

November 14, 2009

This is our new thing here at B4, App Of The Week. Every Friday we will bring you one our favorite iPhone/iPod Touch apps. This week, we decided that pocket god: EP: 28, Barking Spider, Crouching Pygmy our favorite app is: Pocket God, by Bolt Creative. Their latest episode, episode 28, is titled, “Barking Spider, Crouching Pygmy”. For those of you who are not familiar with Pocket God, you get your own little islanders to play with and do what you want with. You can strike them with lightning, drown them or blow them up. You control the weather, the volcano, the fishies, the sun, the moon and even the sharks with laser beams attached to their heads. There are four different “worlds” to explore. Go to Dinosaur Island, The Graveyard, Palm Tree Island or underwater. There are mini games that you can play in Pocket God, also. There is Ooga Jump, Coconut Bouncing and Pygmy Bowling. Thees all happen while you’re playing, instead of touching a button and waiting for a different game to load. The Bolt Creative team comes out with new Pocket God episodes as often as they can to keep everything new and exciting. With each update comes new features. For Example, when they came out with the new episode, Barking Spider, Crouching Pygmy, they added a spider in the graveyard that you fight with a spear. This is one of the best apps in the app store, and you’ll never get bored… it is a must buy.

Chargers Vs. Steelers: A Disappointing End

October 4, 2009

The Chargers were in Pittsburgh today, and had a great second half offensively. The first half was absolutely terrible. No offense, no defense… nothing. It all added up to 21 points in the first half. Take away one of those TD’s and I think the Chargers would’ve won. My player of the game: Antonio Gates. He had a big game, 9 receptions for 124 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Chargers had an awesome comeback in the second half, scoring their only 28 points. They just dug themselves to deep of a hole.  Next week the Chargers have a bye, and the Steelers are facing Detroit (1-3-0, 4th in the AFC North). So, after this week:

Chargers (2-2, 2nd in AFC West)

Steelers (2-2, 3rd in AFC North)

Upset of Week 4:

Denver Broncos: 17   Dallas Cowboys: 10

That game was a HUGE surprise.  I was hearing all about Dallas all week, and how phony Denver 3-0 start is. I’m not saying that the Broncos, who lead the AFC West at 4-0, deserve it… but they are there and that’s all that matters now. They beat Cincinnati on a fluke play, but whatever.

They have a tough schedule coming up. If they can go through the Patriots, the Chargers, the Ravens and the Steelers with 2 or less losses they might actually be a contender. I don’t see it happening, though. My prediction is that they will have MAX, 1 win. New England, Baltimore and Pittsburgh will dominate them on defense and out play them on offense. If they are not beat up after their game with the Patriots, then Denver and my Chargers are going to have a close game on their hands. However, if the Broncos go out there tired and beat up from the previous week, the Chargers can put it away early.

It’s Over!

July 31, 2009

NaBloPoMo is over! It’s about time. That felt like one long month.  It’s been an amazing month in terms of views. This was Bandew444’s second best mont on record, with 614 views. I know it’s not that many, but we don’t have a whole lot of advertising, and B4 and the Jeary aren’t very big and we don’t have a lot of funding, I’d say that’s pretty good. At the beginning of the month I predicted that we would have 66 posts today. Right now there is 78 posts, not including this one. As of today Bandew444’s has 3,057 views. 5,000 is going to be huge. Well, anyway this is the last post for NaBloPoMo + Bandew444’s, sorry Jeary. But like I said earlier, It’s just been an amazing, wild, tiring month, we’ve had tons of progress with wallpapers, our new store an so much more. I just want to say thanks to Zazzle, for letting us put up our products, thanks to Jeary for all the posts and help, and thanks to you, the reader for… well, reading! Keep coming here, because I promise that there will be so much more, and when football season rolls around… oh boy. Thanks again!
