I had lots of family in town this weekend and was unable to plant myself in font of my PC to track the Orange/Cowboys game. And, my wife had me running erands for most of Saturday afternoon, so any chance of keeping up to date on scores was sqashed, right? Wrong. I grabbed her grocery list and my Blackberry 7130 and hit the road. It was about 3:30pm ET when I got started... that was right around 5 minutes through the third and the Orange and Cowboys were exchanging turnovers and scores. So, before I left the driveway I fired up the ESPN.com WAP site and found the game and the "Refresh" pounding began. My dad was with me so I had him keep refreshing while providing color on the game -- 3rd and 17 for the Orange, fumble by the Orange, Touchdown Cowboys!... we thought for sure loss #3 was coming... we also felt like we were in the dome, waiting anxiously on every refresh of the tiny screen... "Request loading...." Touchdown Orange! We yelled out in our car. This continued for about an hour, in and out of the car, until we finally made it through the OT where the Orange prevailed... yet another great sports experience, this time through a screen smaller than 4 sq. inches. Go Orange!
