FSB Daily 6/9: Silly Little Game, Cricket, Golf, Fantasy College Blitz

A roundup of recent posts on the FSB News page.

- The crew for the upcoming ESPN documentary “Silly Little Game” on the history and growth of the fantasy sports industry will be filming at the FSTA conference in Chicago next week. (Obviously, they heard that FSB.com will be there.)

- The International Cricket Council announced a deal by which STATS becomes the “official data partner” for the governing body of cricket.

- This writeup in The New York Times tells us not only that participants in fantasy golf leagues spend just as much time yelling at the TV and lamenting bad streaks as those who play other fantasy sports, but also that there’s a whole set of frustrations specific to the links.

- New Jersey governor Jon Corzine says he doesn’t think it’s fair that the federal ban on sports gambling applies to some states and not others. His state, of course, appears on the “not” list.

- The new fantasy college football season is also in full swing over at FantasyCollegeBlitz.com.
