Attention sports fans:
Keeping up with your favorite teams and players has never been easier.
Why wait for the evening news when you can get the results instantly online?
First, lets visit the long-time experts in the field of sports. Cnnsi.com is Sports Illustrated’s official website.
Links to all types of sports are listed down the left side. Choose one and go directly to an SI homepage
tailored to your favorite sport. Click the S for instant scores of today’s matches.
Espn.com , as expected, has a terrific website. Tune in to ESPN radio, or follow their easy links to the
official sites of the NBA, WNBA, NHL. Abcsports.com is part of ESPN’s network as well.
For CBS coverage, go to sportsline.com. The quick links are at the top of the page for the official league
sites, along with tv listings, contests, and a sports shop. Sign up to play fantasy football, it looks like a lot
Nbcsports.com is another fine network site, with commentaries, live voting, tv listings, and an “ask the
experts” section. Want local scores? Just enter your zip code into their search engine. Stop by one of
NBC’s other sites, nbcolympics.com for a head start on the Salt Lake City 2002 Olympic games.
Want more variety, perhaps personal web pages devoted to your favorite team?
Visit dir.lycos.com/sports for a fantastic list of every sport imaginable. Click here for literally thousands of
sites for most every activity you can imagine. Look for normal categories such as football, bicycling, and
fishing, and some not-so-ordinary ones like korfball, petanque, and highland games. Museum of sports,
searchable sports databases, sports economics links and more.
A similar directory on Yahoo’s site can be found at dir.yahoo.com/Recreation/Sports. Some topics there
that I didn’t see anywhere else were tchoukball, pickleball and hurling (and no, its not what your kids think
it is!) Go to sitedirectory.netscape.com/Directory/Sports/index.html for Netscape’s version.
Are you more of a doer than a viewer? Active.com lists local participatory sports events. Register online to
join in on the fun, there are over 60 different types of activities!
A small site, oeonline.com/~emoryd/dan35.html was written by someone who wanted to list some of the
more participation oriented sites.
Do you go for cycling trips? Try freewheel.com/ for bicycle sports of north west ohio. Make it a weekend
event, not too far from home.
Wvoutside.com lists West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania and other local sporting events you can join close
to home. Community walks and mountain bike races, cycling and skiing, just click the type of activity for
this week’s schedule. A quick look showed some as close as Chillicothe, Circleville, and Logan, Ohio.
Today’s online access gives new meaning to the phrase, “Nothing but net”!
