Is Your Child’s Brain Safe Playing Contact Sports?

The Sports Techie community blog has reported about the dangers of concussions in most all sports since I launched our sports technology business four years ago, but the alarming audacity by sports leagues, associations and federations to cover up the facts when it comes to the concussion dangers present to youth in sport has gone on long enough for me not to stand up against this sad cover up.

Concussions and Helmet Tech w/ Schutt Sports

The best helmets in the world cannot prevent concussions

I’ve suffered concussions from playing lacrosse and crashing a Mt Bike in the city. I think back and wonder about those cold and wet soccer balls we had to head down at Marymoor Park that could not have been good for us. Played football in 5th and 9th grade and I’m pretty sure I got by ok but time will tell. Writing this Blog is eye-opening and scary; however, I know sports technology such as the kind Schutt Sports develops will forever help improve football player’s protective devices.

Helmets protect the body’s most vital organ the brain and ultimately help reduce concussions...

Importance Of Choosing The Right Gears To Give The Best Game Performance

One American Football Player Man Studio Isolated In Full Gear

Wearing the right clothes and gears in football is more than just showing how cool you look in your game outfit. It’s also about walking with your head high into the field, prepared and well-protected for the “battle” ahead.

While it’s easy to choose gears based on how they look, it’s also important to know the science behind the design. Most of these gears were assembled using the science related to sports-specific movements and impacts.

This is especially true when it comes to helmets, because players could suffer from serious head injuries and broken skulls if they don’t wear one. Hence, if you wish to avoid muscle pains and broken bones, picking your gears is a process that you must take seriously...

Winter Indoor Training Boosted by New Technology

The Sports Techie community blog wants our readers and followers to wear optimal apparel and shoes, track your performance metrics, and recover properly wherever you workout

“Winter is coming’ might be the motto of House Stark in the hit HBO series Game of Thrones, but it is of great relevance to countless athletes who need to adjust their training regimes during the colder and wetter months of the year. With winter approximately 5 months away now is as good a time as any to start planning for what could be a frosty winter. Getting up at the crack of dawn to do a 10-mile run or cycle in sub-zero temperatures is not only potentially-dangerous but downright unpleasant as well...

BodyBio Makes PC Brain Supplement

BodyBio PC

CTE Awareness Day (chronic traumatic encephalopathy) happened on January 30 before Super Bowl LIII. Most of the Sports Techie community blog followers and readers had no idea this was so because neither did I. The recent Bob Costas interview on ESPN’s Outside The Lines show about NBC Sports pulling him as host of SB53 because of his public statements regarding the sport of football and violence which in many cases manifests as brain related just heated up this real-life and sometimes terrible death topic.  It is exciting to know CTE prevention is being done with equipment and game rules. The fact is, medical professionals are also transforming lifestyles, performances and longevity using diet and supplementation. In this case, over the last four decades, BodyBio has be...

Lyft Atlanta Ride Share Driver

Ride Share Driving For Lyft Atlanta

Lyft Atlanta Ride Share Driving – Sports Techie blog

Lyft is my preferred ride sharing company even before Uber started started taking negative PR hits because of their corporate culture towards women employees primarily forcing their founder to step down. When I did not own a car, I relied on mostly public transportation and that means Marta buses and trains in Atlanta as well as relying on ride share. I bought a Chevy Cruze last year and now drive exclusively for Lyft although I am cleared for Uber too. Now 1,500 rides later, it has truly been an amazing opportunity to both meet people, see the Atlanta area and places I would probably never have visited otherwise, and to understand this new age, tech-driven business model...

Sports Tech Increasing MLB Viewership Numbers During World Series

From streaming games online to becoming the top U.S. sports app, baseball is now easier than ever for fans to watch and interact with. In fact, MLB.com was the second-most viewed sports website in 2015.

The World Series between the Houston Astros and Los Angeles Dodgers began yesterday giving Major League Baseball center stage for this epic sporting event while the sports stands at a growth crossroads. Once the most popular American pastime, baseball has begun to dwindle. Less and less people are watching baseball on TV and fans are getting increasingly older.
