I have this incredibly cool ap on my smart phone that allows me to check up to the second scores and stats on every major sport...pro and college.....you name it...football...basketball....baseball....hockey...etc etc.... at a second's notice I can get the dirt on pretty much anything necessary to keep me in the loop...even fantasy stats...and being a huge sports fan I have to say I love it !!
