Stadium Issues Fuel Relocation Talks for San Diego Chargers – #SportsTechie blog.

The SD Chargers franchise appears poised to request a transfer to Los Angeles after this season. The main reason for this is the need for a new stadium – and the unwillingness of San Diego taxpayers to foot part of the bill. The Sports Techie community blog does a deep dive look at what this means to loyal San Diego Chargers fans, the city of Los Angeles and the use of cities as stadium pawns by the NFL.

Sports Techie Community ScoreBig On Tickets For Sport, Concerts And Theater Events

ScoreBig provided complementary concert or sports event tickets at ScoreBig.com for me to experience and review their service via a Sports Techie community blog. I was given a $100 voucher to go online and purchase tickets for any sporting events, concerts or shows on the ScoreBig site. I researched the Seattle professional sports calendar and decided on a MLS game between the Sounders FC vs. Philadelphia Union at Century Link Stadium last Saturday night with 38,516 connected fans. The best part besides learning about easy to use ScoreBig technology  and services was the opportunity to attend our 11-month old son’s first pro sport game that made him wide-eyed with excitement the whole time.

Coaching kids’ soccer is a tough role to take on, especially when the kids are very young.
