Enrich your ballpark trip with these home-run apps
We’re well into the Major League Baseball season, and the dog days of summer will soon give way to some truly thrilling divisional races. As someone who watches most of my games on TV (or streaming online), it’s amazing how much being at a game in person can make me feel so oddly disconnected. Where’s the commentary and the constant array of stats and trivia bits? I crave that extra layer atop the game when it’s absent.
An iPhone or iPad can really come in handy in these moments. As much as

No wonder: the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) controller just celebrated its 20th birthday, and Atari, Intellivision, and Commodore 64 controllers are even older.

This could lead many to suggest that Moyes is showing his limitations at Man United.
He may have had a good start — losing the Community Shield to Wigan was out of the question — and he overcame a tricky first fixture against Swansea, but it was very strange of him to moan about the difficulty of his first five games. For the manager of the champions to do that is bizarre.
The market Moyes is now in doesn’t have to be one where he only goes for his last club’s star players.
