"We started off with a small goal... to see every single standing ballpark in the world." Eric and Wendy Pastore run Digital Ballparks; a free online digital baseball stadium museum. The photographs are fantastic.
Via this great compilation of sports links, I discovered Ball Parks, where you can find seating charts, cross sections, trivia, and more on many hockey, baseball, football, soccer, horse racing, and basketball stadiums. Now if only they'd include some really good concession stand recipes.
Sepak is Malaysian for "kick", and takraw means "woven ball" in Thai. Put them together and you get Sepak Takraw, the 500 year old Malaysian sport that's taking the rest of the world by...a really slow moving storm. Think 3 players on a side, using soccer kicks and head butts, on a volleyball court, trying to get a beautiful little hard, woven rattan ball over the net. It may be coming to the 2008 Winter Olympics, and small leagues are popping up all over the place. Photo op.
Chicks on Football was started by two high school pals who approach football news and reporting with a style that is, according to them, lighter, sexier, and more humorous. They also do a column for the equally lighthearted Sports Hollywood, where you can find a world class collection of Yogi Berra-isms. I wanted to include a Yogi quote in this post, but it's impossible to pick one; they're all so good (or bad, depending on how you look at it).
I just got back from 2 grueling days of heat and noise and five dollar sodas courtesy of the Philly hosted X-Games. Major giveaway booty was to be had in the form of free cds, t-shirts, stickers, key chains, jewelry, magazines, baseball caps, towels, and all the chocolate milk your tummy could hold. My son's highlights? The music, and the big truck that was filled with a bazillion televisions, each one hooked up to a PS2. My highlight? Skateboard vert doubles.
