Fantasy Sports Tracker

Here in Seattle we’re known for specialty coffees, technology, and grunge music in the 90’s. After last football season the Seahawks and their fans are hoping to make it back to the Super Bowl and put Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks out there for the world to see. After the Super Bowl loss last season Seahawk fans are rabid and have more foam in their mouth than a latte from Starbucks. Every Sunday is a big deal this season in Seattle. Rather than raking fall leaves and other home improvement projects everyone is watching every move coach Mike Holmgren makes.

Like Mike Holmgren I’ve got my own team and I’ve got a league of other coaches trying to knock my team down. My Fantasy Football league is full of sports nuts watching every game and studying stat after stat. I can’t possibly enjoy the actual games if I’m going back to my computer every other down to check my fantasy teams stats. I was thinking there has to be an easier way to watch the game AND watch my fantasy football team.

Generally when faced with a problem like this I look to X10 for answers. Sure enough there was a kit that would work. The X10 'Fantasy Sports' Tracker.

After hooking up the sender to my computer and the receiver to my TV I was able to send my Fantasy Football stat page from the computer to my television. This way I can watch the game, and watch my stats at the same time.

It’s just like changing the channel! Watch the big game on channel 13; switch over to my stats by hitting video input on my remote, then back to the game. With my TV’s picture in picture I can have them both up and switch from the small screen to the big screen with a simple push of a button.

My favorite thing about the kit actually has nothing to do with the kit. Now I can stay in the family room and watch the game without getting flagged down by my wife while running to the den. Before the X10 'Fantasy Sports' Tracker on the way to view my stats my wife would catch me and put me to work. Rather than watching the game or watching my stats I’d be in the yard raking leaves or cleaning the gutter.

Now I’ve got the game, my fantasy stats all in the comfort of my family room. Now I just need a mini fridge and I’ll be set for the next 17 weeks.
