A roundup of items recently posted on the FSB News page.

- Check this out: Matthew Berry has an Oct. 7 appearance scheduled for the Jewish Community Center in Springfield, Mass., for which attendees will be charged up to $35 (reserved seating; tickets also available at $25, $15 for Center members). By comparison, folks in Houston can buy a $30 ticket to go see Vampire Weekend (plus $12.99 in extra whatever charges).

- Major League Baseball Advanced Media has won a Duke’s Choice Award for its fantasy draft application and live scoreboard. Although it would be much more interesting if these awards singled out personal favorites of John Wayne, Duke’s Choice awards “highlight the ingenuity and creativity of Java developers.”

- has launched a weekly fantasy football platform in which players build a salary-cap team and then enter a pay league at their chosen fee level.

- This article — apparently from the student paper for the University of Memphis, although it seems to instead be named for mayonnaise — focuses on the fantasy playing habits of some average college students, including at least one dude who will now have his professors checking his laptop more closely during class.
