What’s the Score?Posted by: Mike Machnik
Ever wish you could get the latest scores when you were out on the road somewhere? Maybe you were sitting in traffic on the way home from a game, or maybe you just weren’t someplace where you could get to any of the online scoreboards out there. Maybe you were at a game and wished the PA announcer would update the out-of-town scores more often.
That’s all about to change. You can now get live, in-progress score updates on your cell phone — or other handheld wireless device — using College Hockey News‘ new Wireless Scoreboard.
It’s simple — just put “scores.collegehockeynews.com” into your phone, and you’re all set. Bookmark the page for easy access in the future.
There’s more information here. Just remember that while there isn’t a charge to use our new service, wireless charges through your provider may apply, mileage may vary, please drink responsibly, blah blah blah.
If you’ve seen Hockey East’s wireless scoreboard feature (we had something to do with that too), this one will be familiar to you.
This was what we had in mind last week when we told you about CHN’s new partnership with the RinkAtlas.com rink mapping system and team schedule calendars, and said more was coming soon.
As always, let us know what you think, and feel free to pass the word or tell us how you use the wireless scoreboard. Maybe we can convince management to come up with a special prize for the best story…
