Suh-weet: Pac Bell Park has set up wireless nodes that will allow people Internet access from their laptops during games. Okay, in practice, this is going to prove to be yet another in a long string of things for people to do other than watch the game; but for a few of us, WiFi access during games means access to splits and situational statistics that just ain't gonna be in the program, as well as instantly updated out of town scores (or even radio broadcasts of out of town games). Hopefully it'll spread to other parks soon, although I'm somewhat skeptical about the practical aspects of bringing a laptop to a game in the first place. Where do you put it?
