We’re already three days into 2008 and MLB hasn’t gotten around to making importable calendars available for the teams yet. They are obviously too busy to update their web site, instead rolling around naked in their giant rooms full of money they made off of suckers like me that pay for major-league-dot-buffering.
I have got travel plans to make and nerded umm needed to find a way to kill an hour. So, go get your 2008 .ics file format calendar for the Yankees and the Sox off the right hand menu. These are full calendars for import (so you may want to set up a landing place in advance), not subscription-based ones like Yahoo and other companies will eventually offer with post-game scoring updates and other such niceties that you will see when we get closer to the season. The ballpark is set in the location field, and the game number on the season is in the notes field. If the game start time is not yet announced, it’s set for Noon.
There are also html files for the Sox and Yanks to take a gander at the entire season on one page, as opposed to the way they are broken up into barely readable pieces on the team sites (or worse..as embedded images..ick) at mlb.com.
Now my computer knows to wake me up at 2:00am my time on March 25th so I can live blog the Sox-A’s opener. Or not.
If the files don’t work right for you, or if you want the csv files I put together to do this, shoot me an email.
