Daily Tailgate is a brand new concept for sports fans, where they can get a simple email (in the morning) every day, that is customizable to give you daily news about your favorite teams, but will also give you general sports information if you choose to ignore the customization options. My favorite part of the daily email is the section that gives me ideas on TV programming to watch throughout the day and night. For instance, I woke up today and found out that the Yankees are playing at 7:30 p.m. tonight on Fox. I ventured over to my DirecTV box and set a reminder. Easy as pie.
Another cool feature that Daily Tailgate is currently running is a $100,000 BCS Challenge. If you are able to correctly pick the college football teams that will end up in the top 15 of the final BCS standings and also place them in the proper order of ranking, you will win $100,000 courtesy of the website and its happy insurance backers.
I am close with a few of the gentlemen behind the Daily Tailgate concept, and decided I would lend them my final 15 picks with short 1-liners following each selection. The result is below, but may also be seen on today’s DT Current Issue.
