I’m no different than the average Joe when it comes to things I’m passionate about. Two things high on my list of interests are technology (obviously) and sports. For years the two remained separate but over the past few years I’ve noticed that technology is shaping how I follow my favorite sports teams and athletes in general.

I use the ESPN app on my phone to keep track of scores when I’m away from a TV and will likely download the streaming app for the 2012 Olympics since I will be out of town when they start. I’ve been watching free preliminary fights on the UFC live Facebook streaming page before each big event for the past several months.

With this week’s open forum, we want to hear about how you integrate technology into sports you follow. Do you subscribe to NASCAR RaceView, NFL RedZone or use any smartphone apps to stay up-to-date away from your television?
