Get Instant Classic alerts when games get good!
Doing Laundry. Raking the leaves. Went to sleep early. Are any of these worthwhile reasons for missing tonight's Instant Classic? No, we didn't think so either.
Sign up for alerts and RUWTbot will hit you up by email or text message with the score, time left, and channel you need to turn to to catch the game. Don't be the loser at the water cooler the next day that missed an Instant Classic.
Wait, I don't get it. Are you just watching TV all day?
RUWTbot is our game-watching robot that watches every game, and every channel, and alerts you when to tune in. He understands No-Hitters through 8, Big Upsets, and games going into Triple Overtime. When he finds a great game, he'll alert you with a text message or email.
What's with the colors?
When RUWTbot finds a game he likes, he'll root for it. The more roots he adds, the more exciting the game is. If you're watching a game that's getting good, you can let your voice be heard by rooting for it too.
EPIC - Drop everything you're doing. This is Boise State vs. Oklahoma, Lebron vs. Pistons, and no-hitter in the bottom of 9th territory. Find the nearest TV post-haste.
HOT - Any game that is in overtime or extra innings, and sometimes just a close finish or upset possibility will reach HOT. This game is definitely worth turning on the TV for.
GOOD - A GOOD game is starting to get good. It's a tied game in the top of the 9th, or maybe a ranked team down at halftime. If you already have the TV on, you might as well click over and check it out.
OK - All games start off as OK. Snoozers and blowouts are OK. Not even their momma would vote for a game that's OK.
I want to know more about how this works.
