The Aaron Hernandez Murder Case

sports media

Former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was charged with first-degree murder in the death of 27-year old Odin Lloyd, a semi-pro football player.

Hernandez was also charged with one count of carrying a firearm without a license, two counts of possession of a large capacity firearm and two counts of posession of a firearm without a valid identification card.

Hernandez will be held without bail at the Bristol County House of Correction and Jail in North Dartmouth, Mass.

After it was revealed that Hernandez was arrested, he was released from his contract with the Pats.

Based on the information that continues to be revealed it seems pretty doubtful that Hernandez will get off scott free in this case unless some drastic piece of evidence surfaces that shows him to be not guilty.

UFC Ticket Sales are Just Fine

UFC ticket sales are just fine according to Dana White.

Rumours were floating around the internet prior to UFC 162 that the company could only sell 25% of the tickets to the event and that the event would be empty and would be one of the biggest duds in recent memory for a UFC event.

White made comments to the media about the rumours stating that the gate was in upwards of $4.26 million with ticket sales in the range of 12,400.

UFC 162 saw Anderson Silva’s dominant UFC winning streak come to an end when Chris Weidman knocked out the perennial UFC legend.

The result of the main event was a shocking one, but it was bound to happen and it made for one of the biggest and most exciting upsets in UFC history and as we all know, every sports fan loves a good upset.

The San Francisco Giants have put themselves at the forefront of the sports social media scene with the recent addition of a sports social media cafe inside AT&T Park.

The Giants made the addition less than two weeks ago behind the centerfield wall in Peet’s Coffee. The cafe is one of a kind in MLB and should attract a ton of happy ballpark dwellers.

Giants fans can view their own social media content from Twitter and Instagram on six, 55-inch screens, all while enjoying some coffee, recharging a smartphone, accessing a Wi-Fi connection all while watching the Giants play ball.

The café also includes a giant sized tweet-deck where Giants’ employees can create tweets and display them within the café for others to read.

The San Francisco area is definetely a social media friendly community. Levi’s Stadium – the eventual new home of the 49ers – will also be a huge social media hub for fans.

Dwight Howard to the Rockets

sports jobsThe long awaited decision of where Dwight Howard would play next year came to an end when he announced that he is making his way to Houston to join James Harden and the Rockets.

Howard had a tumultuous first season with the Lakers, where a poor season, slow progress from back surgery and tiffs with his team-mates, – including team leader Kobe Bryant – caused Superman to look like a real man for the first time in his playing career.

It was an up and down year for the big guy and the purple and gold fans of LA were skeptical about his return as soon as they were knocked out of the playoffs.

The move is worth $88 million over four years to Howard.

The Rockets played above expectation last season and the addition of Howard to the team should provide one of the best scoring teams in the league with another scoring threat as well as shore up some of their defensive inabilities up the middle.

sports technology

Yahoo Inc. has purchased Bignoggins Productions for an undiscosed amount according to a report.

The purchase of the small mobile applications company is one of several that CEO Marissa Meyer has completed since taking over more then a year ago.

The investment is a small one compared to Yahoo’s purchase of Tumblr – which cost them $1.1 billion; about a fifth of the company’s worth. They’re currently valued at $5.4 billion.

Bignoggins was created by Jerry Shen and produces mobile apps for players in fantasy sports leagues – an industry that Yahoo used to pride itself on being a big part of.

The deal shows that they are interested in re-investing in new technology to get them back atop a market that they used to be a big player in.

Bignoggins produced paid apps such as “Fantasy Monster” and “Draft Monster” which were popular among fantasy sports nuts.

Yahoo doesn’t plan to keep distributing Bignoggins apps, but will use their technology to help them better their own technology for fantasy sports leagues.
