Even though I have given up golf I would still like to play it on my computer. Weird, huh? Well, starting in late August I can! Check out this recent MacWorld article about EA Sports making video games for MAC, including Tiger Woods 2008:

Taking the keynote stage with Apple CEO Steve Jobs, EA co-founder and Chief Creative Officer Bing Gordon told attendees of the Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC) that EA would return to the Macintosh beginning in July with four of its most popular franchises: Command and Conquer 3 Tiberium Wars, Battlefield 2142, Need for Speed Carbon and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix. In August, EA will ship Madden NFL 08 and Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08. Read More

Now I will be able to write a blog entry and play 18 holes at Augusta in 45 minutes!


SportsPastor’s Top 10 Magazines

When I walk into Barnes and Noble, the manager smiles becuase he knows that I will ring up a hefty bill of the latest and greatest magazines. When we are 30 minutes early for a flight, it is yet another opportunity to ring up a hefty bill of the latest and greatest magazines for reading on the airplane. Yes, I love magazines. As a result, my desk is covered with my favorite leadeship books and now 10 different magazines on topics such as leadership, business, technology, sports, and golf (golf is listed seperately because it is no longer a sport to me – you should see me hack…er…play). From the home office in Sioux City, Iowa, here are the top 10 magazines currently on my desk (also featured in left sidebar):

10. Athlon Sports College Football Preview
(Can we give Arkansas’s McFaddin the Heisman trophy yet?)
09. Athlon Sports Pro Football Preview
(Sunday night has better games but not MNF’s Tony Kornheiser)
08. Fantasy Football Magazine
(With the 16th overall pick the Tailgate Tigers select T.J. WhosYourMama)
07. Golf Digest
(Last summer I shot around 85, but this summer I quit before shooting 88)
06. Business 2.0
(If you love the story behind the technology giants, this magazine is for you)
05. Entrepreneur
(As a designer of sports ministries this magazine provides me with start-up insights)
04. ESPN the Magazine
(ESPN has the sports world covered, but the fleece pullover is not needed in Texas)
03. Sports Illustrated
(I would subscribe to this magazine just to read Rick Reilly’s articles on the back page)
02. Mac Life
(Mac Addict finally made it’s way to the States under it’s new name, Mac Life)
01. Mac World
(I’m a Mac, and I’m a PC that exploded and caused the sportspastor to switch to Mac)
