Whether nearby or far away, Christian Brothers students have many different ways to stay in touch with their favorite teams.There are many sports fans at Christian Bothers High School and they love their sports. However, its not just CB sports that have these students captivated — professional sports have CB students glued to their cell phones and iPads for constant scores and breaking news updates.
Students love to represent their favorite teams at school even when they the dress code forbids it. But the real story is how students can stay in touch with their favorite sports teams, even when they are not local.
There are many different techniques to stay up to par with non-local sports organizations such as apps, websites and television shows.
“I prefer to use SportsCenter and Sports Illustrated mostly, that’s how my dad did it, that is how America does it, and it has worked so far.” says CB student John “Jack” Barnes (’15) as he alludes to a quote from fictional character Tony Stark.
“I feel that ESPN and Sports Illustrated are the most prominent and popular sports news sources, this means that they have first hand knowledge on what the information, so they are the most reliable to get it out the fastest”.
For those of you who are not familiar with the program SportsCenter, you need to get out more. It is a very popular sports news program that has been around for since 1979.
Christian Brothers Junior Madison Winn (’15) is not afraid to admit his love for sports.
“I love sports; especially my main teams in the Sacramento Kings and Oakland Raaiiddeeerrsss.” he exclaimed with energy. “It is very important to me that I stay in touch with them.”
“I mainly get my sports news through Sports Center and Yahoo sports online. These two are the best because they provide quick around the world access to the teams and games that I care about most. I seldom listen to the radio unless there is a big game on.”
However some people do not have to luxury to have their teams local or even relatively close to them. This is the case for CB student Blake Edwards (’15).
“As a fan to primarily Philadelphia based teams it is very difficult to stay in touch with them,” he says. “I get my sports news from the Eagles website, ESPN, and NFL network. I also listen to Philly sports radio, so I can get first hand opinions from Philly natives like myself. This is the best way for me to get my teams information because I live all the way out here.”
Blake suffers from sports separation depression, which is a very real thing.
“It really sucks to be in this situation,” he says, summing up his dilemma perfectly.
There are many ways to keep up with your favorite sports teams, from SportsCenter to Philadelphia radio — a wide spectrum indeed. News is only good new, but when it comes to Sports news, CB knows what’s up.
