NOTE: This guide uses newer methods of parsing large json files that may be helpful if you run into issues with schedule size for your sport of choice.

This MagTag project puts your daily sports schedule right on your fridge. Check out the upcoming games in any sport covered by the ESPN API, including NCAA basketball, NHL hockey, NFL football, college baseball, Italia Serie A soccer, and more.

You can press a button to advance to the next game in the series, and any final games will display their score as well!

(Special thanks to my sports-watching brother-in-law Jim Kelly for consultation on this project. Go Bucks!)
