Watching the Michigan-Mercer Lacrosse game going on down in Macon, GA, reminded me that I've always wanted to find some type of service that would:
- let you pick teams you were interested in (e.g. Michigan Football, Michigan softball, Detroit Pistons)
- a radius you would be willing to travel (i.e. 100 miles)
- give you notification when one of your teams is going to be playing within your radius
As an alum out of state, I'd definitely go to any number of Michigan teams' games if they were within 30-60 minutes of me but without staying really on the ball with a bunch of different team's schedules, I'm likely to miss a number of them.
I actually have always thought this would be something cool for Michigan's AD to offer via email lists to take advantage of Michigan's huge fanbase. I'm gonna guess, for example, that when Michigan softball is playing a tournament in California that most of the fans and alums in that area have no clue and would potentially attend if they were aware
Anyone know of any 'away fan' type services that notifies you when one of your favorite teams is playing nearby? If not, any of you smart people want to steal this idea and make a website of it?
