I'm going to give this one the full four stars, even though I have only the very slightest idea what's going on here. American sports, of course, that much I figured. Beyond that, I'm lost. But then I wasn't into English sports, so the fine or even coarse points of baseball and college football are entirely lost on me.
Still, I don't need to be a fan or an expert to see that this is seriously astonishing stuff, with every conceivable statistic relating to previous games, managers, players, batting averages, and on and on and on. And current games are updated at least daily so the information is never more than a few hours old. It's the mother and father and kids and large cuddly dog of sports sites, if American sport is your great love.
The rest of the world isn't entirely left out, though, as the Olympics have a sub-site of their own, featuring more than 150,000 pages (yes, you read that correctly) of data from every event, everywhere, ever.
There isn't a sniff of Web twoiness here, with everything in straightforward blue hyperlinked text and formal tables for fast loading and easy reading. I think it would pretty much have to be like this anyway, as there's just no room for glossy presentation with this much data on a page.
Visit the main URL and you'll find that it's the hub from which you may visit six single-sports sites and the Olympics site, all crammed with information.
You'll know if this one is for you, and if it is, it's a must-bookmark if ever I saw one.
