Why I Hate Rainbows

The University of Hawaii Rainbow Warriors play their home games at a five hour offset from the East Coast.  I don't begrudge them living in Paradise, but the peculiarity of the time zones means that ESPN often reports their games as happening the day after they were actually scheduled.

This annoyance I don't need.

  1. Yes, I remember that being a PITA from last year with ESPN data.. :(

    Not to rub it in.. but the cool thing about using the syndicated data is that you scrape everything local to your own time-zone, if you wish..

    So for Chicago.. I see Nicholls State @ Hawaii @ 10:59PM CST (via suntimes.com)

    And for California it's at 8:59 PM PST (via mercurynews.com)

    Hope you get it sorted out though! The little things like that can be such a pain. :(

  2. Scott Turner, how much money do you bet on any given NCAAB game that you like?
