There is a new sports App called SideBets that allows you to bet with real-time odds and payouts against your friends without the exchange of cash.

Co-founder of Blue Ox Entertainment and CFO, Jon Goldstein, spoke to me on the phone from our wonderful home state of Michigan about his startup sports technology company and why you should download their free smartphone Beta App, SideBets.

SF Giants social media fan storms at AT&T Park

The SF Giants social media fan storms at AT&T Park have helped the team take a 2-0 lead in the World Series best of seven series. I spoke with their Social Media guy, Bryan Srabian, on Thursday about the Giants social media during the 2012 World Series and how their organizational focus in adopting this medium in 2002 played a big role in their recent worldwide trending on Twitter. According to Major League Baseball, World Series game one drew 813,000 social media comments, second only to game six of the 2011 WS.
