Organizing Your Sports Page: Efficiently Using Technology to Follow your Favorite Teams
You never want your sports credentials tainted because your opinion on events suddenly does not matter if it ever did. Not only is the office lounge ruined, going to parties and other functions will be unbearable while you listen to every arm chair quarterback spin their ignorance and you cannot say anything. The length of time your opinion will spend in exile depend on your friends and the situation. The most important tool you need in your arsenal is a smart phone or mobile device that has a high connection speed.
Resources: do not rely on one resource for you information. As CBS found out sharing misinformation is just as deadly as speaking out in ignorance
Two resources that are a must have are listed below. Using these sites you can subscribe and follow your favorite sports and teams 24 hours a day.
1. Twitter Account: follow up to the minute happenings in whatever sport you follow.
2. Livebinder: Livebinder is a site that allows you to organize your favorite analysis and clip it just as you would a notebook.
There are too many sights to list or you would be here all day. The moral of the story is don't let your fan hood become the topic of any conversation. If you have to leave the wife and kids a little to find out who leads the league in slugging percentage so you can look cool at the neighborhood Bar B Q they should be supportive and let you fill the knowledge. If you have read this still believe the sportshow is completely off their rocker do not come crying when your buddies stop inviting you to functions because you thought the "Steroid Era" was a science fiction section at Barnes & Nobles
