Sports.ws Updates – Aug. 7, 2013

We’ve been in and out of hibernation this summer, completely overhauling much of the website’s aesthetic shell. As I’ve said before, our emphasis was on making the interface a) cleaner and fresh, b) more intuitive and convenient and c) more competitive on search engines and ad markets.

Betting tips on the MLB season

It’s very much early days yet in the 2013/14 MLB season, but this is no barrier to the arguments and betting about which sides will win the American and National Leagues, or the World Series – indeed many of those debates started virtually as soon as the last season ended.

Pacers-Celtics canceled, to be made up at Sports.ws

That this post is even necessary is a shame in itself, but an individual or series of individuals who fancied themselves important enough to inflict their disturbed will upon the lives of hundreds and thousands of innocents – physically, through the successful detonation of a pair of explosives at the world-renowned Boston Marathon, and emotionally, as any attack close to home does.

There’s been talk of yet another Michael Jordan comeback in the air, and as of yet, nobody’s quite figured out if it’s actually serious or not. With Air Jordan’s 50th birthday fast approaching (on Feb. 19th), fans and critics alike are taking a good hard look at the man’s Hall of Fame speech and reconsidering the possibility of him putting on a uniform for one last, symbolic game.

Sports.ws Joins TheGP Family

As of the New Year, The Good Point will welcome the addition of a new community: fantasy sports giant Sports.ws. With a global fantasy basketball game at the heart of it all, Sports.ws has served as the longest standing free fantasy basketball website on the internet. (Yes, you read that right). Online in one form or another since 1995, and open to the public since 1999, Sports.ws has persevered as the most unique and engaging fantasy sports format available. This is going to be a fun year.

The Sports Writer’s Conundrum

As has become tradition, The Good Point decided to skip the border and travel south for coverage of the Grapefruit League. It was a long and tiresome trek from the snow-soaked streets of Ontario, but one as worth it as ever.
