Retro Review: Athletics Nation (Oakland As)
REVIEWED BY: Ms. Cairo
MY RECOMMENDATION: Yes, with reservations
AMAZON SUBSCRIPTION LINK: Athletics Nation
WEB ADDRESS: http://athleticnation.com
BLOG DESCRIPTION: A weblog for fans of the Oakland A’s, Athletics Nation includes teams news and the latest statistics.
MY REVIEW: There is such a wealth of information fed by Athletics Nation to your Kindle, that at a cost of 99 cents a month to have it delivered, it's not a bad deal, especially if you're a diehard Oakland As fan.
Unfortunately, like most of the SportsBlog Nation blogs, many of the features available on the website aren't available on the Kindle. There aew videos, audio, lots and lots of photos, and probably even game threads that you won't see unless you actually visit this blog web's page.
However, I frankly anticipate that once the season actually begins and the posts really start coming, they'll mostly be text-based, and Kindle users will be able to enjoy having the articles delivered directly to their Kindle.
