It Takes a Village to Raise Great Athletic Prodigies

It Takes a Village to Raise Great Athletic Prodigies

For the local scene of the training pool in sports, funding might not be that easy, unlike in the big leagues.

Everyone loves watching sports – that is just a worldwide fact. One way or another, we are a fan of the athleticism shown in any given sport. It can be basketball, volleyball, football, any sport! Sometimes we are not necessarily a fan of the sport to start with, but suddenly we are die-hard fans just because of the marvel of a certain player or athlete. The Sports Techie community blog loves how tech helps not only train these youngsters but also delivers HD sport video clips and entire games right to your digital devices...

Bet On The NBA Champion Now

Bet On The NBA Champion Now

Place a bet on the 2018 NBA Champion winner now to lock in the best odds using sites like Amazing.Bet. Because as of right now, not even the Golden State Warriors are a lock to three-repeat after going through a recent three game losing streak enabling the Portland Trail Blazers to take over the number one seed in the Western Conference if the 2019 playoffs began today. The recent spat between all-everything Kevin Durant and all-attitude Draymond Green has caused a team rift the size of a California fissure when mixed in with the six games and counting groin injury to former MVP, Steph Curry. The West is loaded while the Eastern Conference has maybe five teams that could pull off the finals upset, at least on paper...

State Farm Arena Ready For Atlanta Hawks Opening Night

State Farm Arena Transformation With Sports Tech Enhanced Features

State Farm Arena Transform With Sports Tech Enhanced Features

State Farm Arena opens tonight when the Atlanta Hawks play the Dallas Mavericks after a $200 million arena refurbish of which $142.5 million came from Georgia public funding, something I am fully against because billionaire owners don’t need the money, right. This is touted as the second-biggest facility redesign in NBA history after MGS in New York. My son and I went to the “Welcome to the Neighborhood” Open House Party which was free to the public last weekend and had a good time indeed which bodes well for fans this evening and throughout the 2018/19 season. Unfortunately, with the new sponsor and all the technology-driven bells and whistles like the fan...

The Talking Points From The 2018 World Cup in Russia

The team behind BettingSites created an infographic which outlines some fascinating numbers and facts about the top 16 teams in WC’18.

It’s now more than three months since the 2018 World Cup ended on a high note with France lifting the trophy for the second time after a thrilling 4-2 win at Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow. But the interest surrounding it hasn’t gone yet, which is quite understandable considering that this World Cup is regarded as the best World Cup ever. The Sports Techie community blog was tuned in to the epic FIFA event through Fox Sports and streaming companies like YouTubeTV and Fubo TV. For me, Video Assistant Referee (VAR) technology was one of the stars of the month long show, including during the final match.

After the Hoverboard Scandal – Which Brands Can You Trust?

Remember just a couple Christmases ago when hoverboards were the gift to give? You may also recall the great debacle surrounding the products shortly after – a few of these self-balancing scooters had electrical shortages and caught fire, making national headlines and worrying parents who had bought them for their kids. The Sports Techie community blog believes in safety first when it comes to sports tech.

Just as quickly as they gained popularity, they were labeled hazardous. These dangerous early hoverboards all had one thing in common though – the batteries were all traced back to a single factory in China and sold for cheap...
