I think it would be AWESOME to have a Countdown on our front page here.

i did it on a mac, and i have no idea how it looks on a windows machine...

also, i "borrowed" graphics from WSI

i'm going to go make it smaller now.

Patrick, that is EXCELLENT man! Ive always loved that old scoreboard (note that all 8 Pinwheels are there) and the Clock too. Now lets "import"
your design here and were all good ........

Hangar, why don't we just throw out random numbers guessing the current countdown? :cool:

91 days, 18 hours, 1 minute, 56 seconds.

I don't know what to do with myself during the week. It is sad when I can say word for word everything in the World Series video.

Pat, I'm too lazy to do the math, but did you set the clock so game time was 7:07? That's what it really is, at least when there is local TV. I'm not sure what it will be for ESPN.

BTW, I'm not really serious here, but it's not really tealable either since it's not really sarcasm.

truthfully, that countdown is about 7 hours off. something involving time zones. i would fix it but i'm at work and i can only edit from home.

but i did try to make it 7:05 (scheduled time, even though yours is more accurate) but the java didn't allow for minutes. therefore, i went with broadcast time!

countdown to pitcher and catchers actually makes a little more sense then countdown to the opener

pitchers and catchers means winter is almost over

Voluntary or mandatory?:cool:

the ticker is a solid idea.

there's only one website that i know that is more jaded than wsi, and that is,http://www.dodgerblues.com
they take a slightly more comical approch to the ticker.

seriously funny site.

I really don't understand what all you guys are freaking out about, I mean think about it, it's already December 14th. Yeah I know the winter hasn't "officially" started yet, but what does "officially" mean anyway?? This counter thing is a stupid idea. If you want to see a truly great and inspiring COUNTDOWN, just take and post pictures of THE SHRINE'S bleacher renovation. When they are complete, baseball is back baby!!!
