Cricinfo StatsGuru Database for Statistical and Graphical Analysis by Ajay Ohri.

From the post:

However ESPN has unleashed the API (including both free and premium)for Developers at http://developer.espn.com/docs.

and especially these sports http://developer.espn.com/docs/headlines#parameters

[parameters omitted]

What puzzled me at first was the title and then Ajay jumping right in to illustrate the use of the parameters, before I could understand what sport was being described.

Ok, grin, laugh, whatever. ­čśë I did not recognize Circinfo.

I am sure that many of you will find creative ways to incorporate sports information into your topic maps.

Here is a golden opportunity!

Imagine a topic map that accesses ESPN and merges with local arrest/divorce records, fan blogs, photos from various sources.
