How cable companies could make more money from me as a sports fan

June 13, 2013

1

There are so many ways I can get access to movies and TV shows. But with many live sporting events, you either need to be at the game in-person or pay a huge monthly cable/satellite bill in order to watch the ones you want. With all the choices we have as consumers, you’d think there would be more than two ways to pay to see a live sporting event in 2013. I’m not asking for free; I’m asking for different ways to spend my money to access a product.

ESPN loves a good Tebow story, even more than a John Wall 47-point performance

John Wall scored 47 points for the Washington Wizards on Monday night in the team’s 107-94 win over the Memphis Grizzlies. With that, “Wall is the first player to record at least 47 points, 8 assists and 7 rebounds in a game since LeBron James recorded 51 points, 8 assists and 11 rebounds on February […]

Over on BrooksLaichyear.com, I have a couple of posts about the NHL lockout now that it has finally come to an end. As a long time fan, this is the fourth NHL work stoppage I’ve sat through in the last two decades and the third lockout under league commissioner Gary Bettman. But I feel most for all […]

November 13, 2012

NASCAR is looking far from impressive for the way they’ve handled an incident that occurred over the weekend, when driver Clint Bowyer said that opponent Jeff Gordon’s actions on the track made them and their fellow racers “all look like a bunch of retards.” From sbnation.com’s Jeff Gluck: After speaking with NASCAR officials about his […]

A group of WAKA Kickball players in Connecticut are looking to break the Guinness World Record for the longest kickball game. It will take place March 30-April 1 and they’re raising money for a great cause too: Kick-It, which was started by a child cancer patient and raises money for children’s cancer research through charity […]

Kevin Weekes says Caps now “the main team” in DC area sports scene

December 2, 2011

Speaking on the NHL Network about the Anaheim Ducks hiring of former Caps coach Bruce Boudreau, Kevin Weekes praised Boudreau for putting Caps “back on the radar” and said, “they’re now the main team back in the DC area in terms of the sports scene.” True? Do the Caps come ahead of the Skins as […]

Competitive kickball

June 29, 2011

For a good number of people that play WAKA Kickball, it’s very much a social sport. They do it to meet new people (they become reunited with old friends in some cases) and to have fun. Many players continue socializing after the game at their local kickball bar, not only with their team but with […]

Corey Masisak with NHL.com tweeted the picture above from Vancouver’s Rogers Center tonight, pointing out that this Boston Bruins fan might be “in for an interesting evening” as an away fan at Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals. What jumps out at me in the photo, as a Washington Capitals fan, are all the […]

Nats should leverage demand for a Teddy win to get something they need

June 2, 2011

It’s been almost exactly a year since I suggested the Washington Nationals should let Teddy win their Presidents Race on June 4, 2010, as a consolation prize to all the fans who’d bought tickets  to that game thinking it might be Stephen Strasburg’s major league debut. But Teddy came up short in that race, leaving […]
