I wrote earlier this week about how Comcast has become an official sponsor of The Phinsider and many other SBN football blogs. Like Comcast, Sprint - the NFL's official telecommunications sponsor - is also now a proud sponsor of SB Nation.
What's in it for you? As part of SBN's deal with Sprint, many of our posts are now being fed to Sprint's NFL Mobile Live program that is available on most Sprint phones. To access our content, just go to the Miami Dolphins section of the program - where you will see "SB Nation" labeled as one of the headings. Pretty cool, if you ask me.
On a personal note, I did want to say that I've been a Sprint subscriber for a few years now and I do think that their NFL Mobile Live program is an amazingly useful thing for NFL fans. It gives you access on your phone to basically what amounts to a mobile, live-updating version of NFL.com's live scoreboard and gamecenters on gameday. They update live with no refreshing - depending on the phone you have. I have a Palm Pre (and I love it, by the way - and am trying to convince Dolphins CB Sean Smith to stick with the Pre as his phone of choice). The program also provides you with the latest news and original NFL.com content wherever you are.
NFL Mobile Live also gives you free access to the radio broadcasts of every single regular season game right on your phone. In fact, you even get a choice of listening to either the home team or road team broadcasts. So for those of you not in the Miami area, you can hear Jimmy Cefalo, Jim Mandich, and Joe Rose call the Dolphins games live right from your cell phone. But again, this is only available through Sprint and their NFL Mobile Live program.
Sprint has also partnered up with the NFL to give out 17 trips to this year's Super Bowl - which will come from Land Shark Stadium, of course - via their new Sprint Can't Miss Plays of the Week. You simply just click here and vote each week on what was the play of the week. Every time you vote, you are entered for a chance to win one of those 17 Super Bowl trips.
Again, don't worry. You will not be hammered with Sprint marketing messages from me. Only this one time - just to point out the beenfit of being a Sprint subscriber and having access to what is really a "must have" for NFL fans everywhere - Sprint's NFL Mobile Live.
