I’m grateful modern technology brings news to me quicker than little Jimmy once did while riding his bike lugging a load of newspapers and then whipping them into people’s front yards. I receive instant baseball updates through Bleacher Report directly to my iPhone. While reading through the latest baseball buzz, my eye caught a headline that read, “MLB Writers Leaderboard 2012”. Instantly, the headline grabbed me as a writer and baseball fan so I clicked on the link. I skimmed through each writer to find that ALL OF THEM WERE MEN! (If there’s men reading this, don’t get your jockstrap all twisted, I’m not male bashing, I’m merely making a point that not one female is on this list). Intrigued? Yes. And slightly determined to get myself on that list! Let me add, I am not certain if there are no female contributing columnists or if they just didn’t make the leaderboard.
Either way, I want to be on that list, haha!
On a sidenote: Did you know can google anything, anytime and from numerous devices, it’s really quite amazing when you think about it-little Jimmy would never be able to pedal that fast. Just for kicks, I randomly typed in “armpit itch” yesterday while putting this post together. (No, I have no idea how or why my mind wandered there but perhaps I had been itching my armpit). I won’t tell you what google found because I know you actually want to do this for yourself…right? hahaha…I’ll wait to continue until you get back!…
Anyways, I recommend this Bleacher Report app to anyone with a smartphone. If you’re on the go often it’s a fantastic way to receive those sports updates in real time. I often cannot keep up with my racing thoughts and forget to check on baseball news. If you have a brain like the one I have been blessed with, it’s difficult for me to remember or record all the creative ideas I get down on paper or into any of my electronic notepads!
Since you can add/delete teams to customize this app, during October playoff baseball my iPhone notifications from Bleacher Report were blowing up my phone! I had basically added every team in the post season so you can imagine! Ahh, how I miss baseball!
What a blessing and honor it would be to interview your favorite ball players-what an article I would write! Someday perhaps, you just never know. Here’s to hoping!
