Any way the patch could post all the sporting events and dates when they come out? Perhaps the start of every week we could get a run-down of all the games and locations that they are taking place?

That's a great idea, William! :) We did that in the 2010-11 school year, but it sort of fell by the wayside in 11-12. I'll make a note to start it up again in 12-13!
