Help me maintain a superficial knowledge of sports with minimal effort.
My office is pretty sports-obsessed, and I'd like to participate more in the conversations. I've found this thread
, but I didn't find it that helpful.
Most of the advice on that thread came down to "be yourself and don't try to fake it," or "read the sports page." I've already decided to fake it, so I don't want advice on that matter. I don't subscribe to a newspaper, and I don't want to spend time reading sports or team-specific websites, sifting through a newspaper's sports articles without knowing what's important, listening to sports radio, or watching ESPN.
My dream resource would be an RSS feed like the Atlantic Wire
but for sports - a rundown of the top stories, and a few lines from different perspectives. Failing that, I'd like a morning briefing, or list of talking points. Basically a two or three page document summarizing whatever's on SportsCenter that morning. Like the old "Today's Papers"
feature on Slate.
