Slingbox fans enjoying the 2016 NFL Draft and the NBA Playoffs: Top 10 Sports

2016NFLDraftlogoHere are the top 10 sports programs Slingbox users were watching this past week. If you are interested to learn a little more about sports, you should check it out.

  1. 2016 NFL Draft
  2. NBA: Warriors at Rockets
  3. SportsCenter
  4. Futbol UEFA Liga de Campeones
  5. NBA: Rockets at Warriors
  6. Futbol Mexicano Primera Division
  7. NBA: Cavaliers at Pistons
  8. NBA: Hawks at Celtics
  9. UEFA Champions League Soccer
  10. NBA: Clippers at Trail Blazers

I’ll start by saying; I am shocked the NHL playoffs were not included in this week’s top 10. A lot of those games were really exciting. Anyways…Before we get into the exciting 2016 NFL Draft, let me give you a quick recap of what has been happening in the NBA playoffs. In the first round of the playoffs, the Spurs swept the crippled Memphis team, OKC stomped all over Mark Cuban and his beloved Mavericks, the Cavaliers swept the Pistons, the Warriors minus MVP blew out the Rockets, and the Hawks just knocked the Celtics out of contention. Injuries have been plaguing the playoffs this year, and the Clippers really felt it the other night. Chris Paul suffered a fractured hand, Blake Griffin re-injured his leg, and they will both be missing the entire playoff series. The Clippers are down 2 wins to 3 to the Portland Trailblazers, and we will find out tonight if the Clippers will have enough fight left in them to take this series to game 7.

13082611_1149450121785860_3810611090727191962_nThe 2016 NFL draft was a wild, highly watched, first round of the NFL draft. Cal’s Jared Goff was selected first by the Los Angeles Rams. I am slightly disappointed to see him moving down south, because I would have personally loved to see Goff in a Niners uniform. The 2nd pick, Carson Wentz, was picked by the Eagles, the 3rd pick, Joey Bosa, was picked by the Chargers, and the 4th pick, Ezekiel Elliot was picked by the Cowboys. Pretty interesting first round picks all around, especially with the whole Laremy Tunsil scandals that have been going around the day of the draft. For those who did not know, Tunsil’s cell phone and Twitter were hacked and his private videos and texts were leaked to the public. Quite the series of unfortunate evens for Tunsil.

We’ll be back next week with more entertainment.

Valar morghulis. I swear it, on the old gods and the new that I am the biggest Game of Thrones fan out there. Unlike most people, I thrive off the suspense waiting for the new season to start because when the season premier airs, I am in complete Zen. I don’t want to give out spoilers for those Game of Thrones stragglers who still need to catch up on the first episode, but let me just say, the first episode was shocking, brutal, intense, and kind of gross. But that is just the way we like it.

To give a very brief summary of what has happened prior to Sunday’s episode, I will provide you with a synopsis in three sentences. Winter zombies are coming to take over the human race. Meanwhile, the arrogant kingdoms are fighting over power, and everybody seems to die right as you start to like them as a character. Oh, and there are three badass dragons. Tune in every Sunday on HBO to watch Game of Thrones.

Valar dohaeris. We’ll be back tomorrow with sports.

Playoff season is the best season for a Slingbox: Top 10 Sports

usa-today-9254028.0
Here’s our top 10 list for sports. If you are a basketball fan, you will love to read up on this one. Playoff season is always the best time of year.

1. NBA: Rockets at Warriors
2. Sports Center
3. NBA: Mavericks at Thunder
4. Futbol Mexicano Primera Division
5. NBA: Pistons at Cavaliers
6. NBA: Grizzlies at Spurs
7. NBA: Celtics at Hawks
8. NASCAR Racing
9. NHL: Blues at Blackhawks
10. NBA: Pacers at Raptors

This past week has been great for sports fans. Baseball is starting back up again and we have the NBA and NHL playoffs going on. Life really can’t get any better. At the top of our list, we have the Rockets at Warriors playoff game number 2. These two teams met in the Western Conference Finals last year, and here they are again in the first round of the playoffs. The Warriors, who won the championship last year, are back stronger than ever, finishing their season with 73 wins and only 9 losses! That beats Michael Jordan’s Chicago Bulls 1995 record of 72-10! It is amazing to be able to witness history. Steph Curry, the reigning MVP, came out of the game early with an ankle injury, but after receiving positive MRI results yesterday, there are no concerns for future games. Phew. The main question is, can James Harden get to the foul line enough for the Rockets to win the game, or should we bring out the brooms? Find out tomorrow by watching the game at home or away from home with your Slingbox at 6:30PM PT on TNT.

For the non-basketball fans, I’ll give you a little update on how this year’s playoffs will work. The top 8 teams in the West and the East battle it out to make it to the finals, where the winner of the western conference will play against the winner of the eastern conference. All of the games are best of 7, and usually nationally broadcasted. Tonight the Hornets will play against the Heat at 4:00PM, the Pistons against the Cavaliers at 5:00PM, and the Trail Blazers against the Clippers at 7:30 PM (all PT). Don’t forget to watch it on your Slingbox if you are away from home! Take a picture of yourself watching sports on your Slingbox and comment back on this post for some Slingbox swag!

We’ll be back next week with more top tens!

Slingbox users are watching new shows: Top 10 Entertainment

rs_560x420-150304120148-Outlander-The-Story-Continues-Key-Art

Our 10 most-watched programs of the week on Slingbox, non-sports edition, is as follows. Keep reading after the list for our thoughts on this week’s most-watched home entertainment:

1. Today
2. The Big Bang Theory
3. Grey’s Anatomy
4. Fear the Walking Dead
5. The Voice
6. ABC News Good Morning America
7. Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
8. Modern Family
9. Outlander
10. Blue Bloods

With many of the same shows reappearing on our top 10 entertainment list, what about the shows on the bottom of the pack that get less love than the others? Coming in hot at #9 is Outlander. To be perfectly honest, I had never even heard about Outlander until this morning , but when I looked it up, I was drawn in. Outlander is on their second season and has a smashing rating of 8.5 out of 10 on IMDb. This may sound outlandish (no pun intended), but Outlander follows the story of Claire Randall, a married nurse from 1945 who randomly goes back in time to 1743. In 1743, Claire is part of a world where her life is threatened, and she is forced to marry another man who is clearly not of her time. Enter the love triangle and the torn heart, as Claire continues to live in the past. Catch the next episode of Outlander on your Slingbox this Saturday, but I would suggest just starting from the beginning by checking out Starz on demand.

At the back of our list we have Blue Bloods. Last Friday, Blue Bloods released their season 6 finale, which is probably the reason why they made the top 10. This show revolves around the Reagan’s, a multigenerational family of cops in New York who not only deal with law enforcement but with family issues as well. Frank Reagan, the commissioner of the NYPD, has three children who are all part of law enforcement. His three children have very different personalities, and it is impressive to watch Frank micromanage his children and his job at the same time.

We’ll be back on Wednesday with sports!

Friendly reminder. There are three NBA playoff and NHL playoff games tonight. Don’t forget to tune in to watch the games, and if you are away from home, fire up that Slingbox!

 

 

Slingbox fans shocked by 2016 Masters results: Top 10 Sports

Your 10 most-watched programs of the week on Slingbox, sports edition, were as follows. Check after the list for a few quick thoughts on this week’s most-watched sports.

1. 2016 Masters Tournament
2. SportsCenter
3.
Futbol UEFA Liga de Campeones
4.
Futbol Mexicano Primera Divison
5.
Live From the Masters
6.
NASCAR Racing
7.

10.
WWE Monday Night RAW

Was anyone else shocked with the results of the 2016 Masters Tournament? Who would have guessed that Jordan Spieth, the defending champ in the lead for most of the tournament, was going to hit a quadruple-bogey on the 12th hole? Despite the strong winds that were affecting the players throughout the tournament, Spieth managed to maintain his lead and favored to win the green jacket. Yet on the 12th hole, Spieth was seen turning his head away in disappointment as his golf ball headed directly for the creek for the second time.  With Spieth out of contention, Danny Willett made an amazing come back and became the first player from England to win a green jacket since Nick Faldo in 1996. Willett was not even planning to attend the Masters because his wife was due to give birth to their first child. What an amazing couple weeks for Danny Willett!

Okay, now that we got that out of the way, let’s talk about other sports that Slingbox users enjoyed this past week. Soccer, or should I say football, really seemed to dominate the top 10 list with the many different league matches going on. Soccer continues to be a very popular sport among Slingbox users, but what about the NBA? The Golden State Warriors have a chance to make history today if they defeat the Memphis Grizzlies. Will they be able to clinch the best NBA record of all time with 73 wins and only 9 losses? Tune in with your Slingbox tonight at 7:30 PM PT to watch history in the making – no matter where you are. Go Warriors!

We’ll be back next week with more top ten lists.

Slingbox users familiarizing themselves with modern shows: Top 10 Entertainment

pic_3719791

Our 10 most-watched programs of the week on Slingbox, non-sports edition, were as follows. Check after the list for a few quick thoughts on this week’s most-watched home entertainment:

 1. American Idol
2. The Big Bang Theory
3. Today
4. Grey’s Anatomy
5. Law & Order: Special Victims Unit
6. Empire
7. Modern Family
8. ABC News Good Morning America
9. The O’Reilly Factor
10. NCIS

With The Walking Dead ending their 6th season, we were excited to see which new entertainment show will take their place. American Idol has always been one of the greatest shows to watch and sing along with, but I wanted to spend some time to shed light on the new additions to the list. So without further ado, please welcome Empire and Modern Family.

Empire is on their second season and has a rotten tomatoes score of 87%! Although I have yet to check out this show, I think I will have to after seeing how many Slingbox users are tuning in to watch this show. Modern Family, on the other hand, is on their 7th season and is about exactly what the title suggests, a modern family. Modern Family has been a top show for many years now on Slingbox top 10s and on IMDb. The series offers a hilarious but very honest perspective of family life. Make sure to fire up that Slingbox for the next episode of Modern Family which will air this Wednesday (4/13) at 9 PM PT.

We’ll be back Wednesday with sports!
