I will admit it. I’m an Olympics junkie. I am extremely stoked for 8/8/08 to arrive and will undoubtedly be attached to the tube, cheering on the red, white, and blue to take medal after medal. My one deviation from rooting for the U.S. is when former SportsAgentBlog.com contributor, Samyr Laine, runs the track for the Haiti squad. Anyway, this Olympics go around, I will never be lost wondering where the U.S. stands in terms of medals won.
Yahoo! has developed a new program that you can access on your mobile phone, giving you up-to-the-minute information on medals won, Olympics news, and photos from the games. Point your phone’s browser toward http://m.yahoo.com/2008games and you are good to go. A screenshot of the service is pictured at the bottom of this post.
Additionally, if you own a website, you may be interested in keeping your readers informed with the latest Olympics news, photos and videos. http://www.nbcolympics.com/widgets/ has a nice looking widget that is easy to install and will make you think you are actually in Beijing (minus the air pollution).
