With an extra few weeks before the official start of free agency, LeBron James can learn how to pass the time (if not the ball) with an iPhone. In fact, Tiger Woods, Brett Favre and others should all tap into these 10 iPhone apps when they’re not playing the field. Word is that Kurt Warner […]

With an extra few weeks before the official start of free agency, LeBron James can learn how to pass the time (if not the ball) with an iPhone. In fact, Tiger Woods, Brett Favre and others should all tap into these 10 iPhone apps when they’re not playing the field.

Word is that Kurt Warner is in discussions with a Hollywood producer to film a biopic of his life story. Some actor will need to properly recreate how Warner stocked groceries at Hy-Vee before making it big. This 99-cent shopping list-management app is the MVP of all related offerings in the App Store. 

Liar’s Poker

So many of us wanted to believe that Floyd Landis was not on the dope after failing a drug test following his 2006 Tour de France “victory.” Alas, he finally injected  fans of the sport with verbal malware over the last four years by admitting he was juiced up for the race. While it’s unlikely that Landis will ever be able to bluff anyone again, it won’t cost him a dime to download this card game app while training for another cycle of lies. 

David & Goliath

Two years ago the Tampa Bay Rays went to the World Series, and this year they are proving more than capable of competing with their better-healed competitors in the American League East. To keep on slaying the Yankees and Red Sox this year, Joe Madden should pencil in this 99-cent app to his lineup. Players can flip through this illustrated account of the Bible’s best underdog story while in the dugout or traveling on road trips. 

Drug Search

A third of the way through his first season as hitting instructor of the St. Louis Cardinals, Mark McGwire is doing a pretty weak job keeping Albert Pujols and his teammates hot at the plate. We all know what really powered McGwire’s own hitting career. To make sure his entire lineup is not on suspension before the All Star Game, however, McGwire should download this free app which details which substances are prohibited by the World Anti-Doping Agency. 

Made in America

 As the Chicago Blackhawks and Philadelphia Flyers prepare for their all-USA Stanley Cup Finals series, fans below the border can boast to their Canadian buddies with the 99-cent Made in America .

While younger fans only know of the drubbing the Boston Celtics handed to the L.A. Lakers during the NBA Finals two years ago, their rivalry is one of the most storied in all of professional sports. To appreciate what will likely be their 11th meeting in the Finals, younger fans should download History Classics, which for 99 cents details significant moments in history.
