Welcome to the NEW SeatHound.com

This is probably the biggest update to SeatHound.com since the launch many years ago. For the most part, we have completely re-written SeatHound from the ground up. So many improvements to go over, but I am only going to touch on a few of them in this post. We will dive into

Our New Mascot (name tbd)
We found this little guy sitting out there on the Internet, and we had to have him as our new mascot/logo. As you can see, he is a super fan when it comes to sporting event and concerts, but we are still trying to figure out a name for our new mascot/logo. Stay tuned for a massive contest where anyone can submit a name for free event tickets.



New & Improved Interactive Maps

We spent a lot of time rewriting our JS libraries for an overall better experience for our users. Now this is just the first step of many, but you should see an increase in performance, reliability and usability. We have some pretty big plans to improve upon our interactive maps to make them even BETTER. Furthermore, we enhanced our mobile viewing experience to match that of our new native apps! (more on that in the next section)


Native Mobile Apps for iOS and Android!
We knew this time around that we had to have our mobile app, version 1, completed and ready to go with this massive update! And I am happy to announce, we did it. We are utilizing the Ionic Framework to quickly build out our mobile experience for multiple platforms. We are very proud of this first version, but have so many plans to expand and extend the functionality to something much greater. We will have some detailed posts about our mobile app and platform to give users an idea of the framework, what we are working on and where we are going.

   


Some closing thoughts…
SeatHound has been a passion project since inception. We wanted to created something by sports/concert fans for sports/concert fans. And the reason I say ‘we’ is because SeatHound was founded by 2 individuals; myself(Robert Velton) and Dan Taylor. (I’m on the right and Dan is on the left in the picture below) We started this whole crazy idea at a random pizza place, jotting down some silly ideas on a napkin… makes me smile just thinking about it. Unfortunately, Dan passed away a little over 2 years ago.

Since Dan’s passing, SeatHound hasn’t done much. In fact, it was rather difficult for me to even think about the project or work on the project. But that would of been a waste of everything Dan and I worked for over the years. So over the last 5-6 months, I worked to bring SeatHound into the vision we talked about over the last few years of his life. The project is not there yet, but its sure on its way. I think about him every day, and I can still hear him calling me “broski” every now and then. So this update is ultimately for Dan and everything him and I talked about/worked towards over the years…

Mike Sando from NFL.com is a Smart Man – Chargers #1 in Power Rankings

If you ask this NFL handicapper, the Chargers are the best team in the NFL. The Bolts are the only team to cover all 5 of their games played, even though they lost in Arizona. The Bolts have gotten better during the season, not worse, and that is having a 4th string center and 3rd string running back. Look for the Chargers to get healthier as the season goes on, when Ryan Mathews returns and so does center Rich Orenberger. While I love Peyton Manning, and the Denver Broncos, and of course the Seattle Seahawks, both are more vulnerable than they were last year and Philip Rivers looks like he is on a mission to finally win the Lombardy Trophy.

I know it’s not popular, but I agree with Mike Sando and NFL.com. Chargers #1, Seahawks #2, and Denver #3. Look for all 3 of those teams to be in the 13 – 3, 12 – 4 mark going into the playoffs. The only question is who will win the AFC West, the Broncos or the Bolts. If the Bolts hold up in “Bad opponents” games like the Raiders this weekend (They have historically had trouble in these types of games), the Chargers will have proven that they have turned the proverbial corner and are real contenders for the title this year.

Want tickets to the Chargers, Broncos or Seahawks. Tickets start at just $5 for games at Qualcomm and $25 at each of the other stadiums. Just pick the right game, like Chargers vs Rams and see professional football for less than the cost of a beer!. Compare ticket prices at SeatHound.com and Save!

ALCS and NLCS Tickets Available for Cheap – $58 – Comparing Ticket Prices Always Saves You Money

The ALDS went out without a bang. The Kansas City Royals and Baltimore Orioles both hammered their respective opponents 3 to 0 in their best of 5 series. While the NLDS added a little bit more drama, it wasn’t much when the St Louis Cardinals beat the Dodgers 3 to 1 and the San Francisco Giants won 3 to 1 as well over the Washington Nationals.

On to the Championship Series. Both Series will be best of 7. The Royals will start out on the road against the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards. See the game for less than $125. The Royals are in the playoffs for the first time since 1985, and the Orioles are in the ALCS for the first time since Cal Ripken was going for the record of most games played in a row, in any sport, all time. Both these organizations have been smart by building through their farm systems, and getting a few key players via trades (I’m looking at you Big Game James Shields). Click here to compare ticket prices and save money on the Royals or Orioles.

The San Francisco Giants vs the St Louis Cardinals will start on Saturday at Busch Stadium in their best of 7 series, and tickets start at just $58 (a couple left!). I suppose it’s fitting that the two best run organizations in the National League and MLB in general will meet in the NLDS for the right to play the winner of the ALDS. Both of these organizations have been to and won the World Series multiple times in the last 10 years, something that is really unheard of in today’s salary cap world. Click here for St Louis Cardinal vs San Francisco Giants tickets, compare ticket prices and save!

Want to be smart like these organizations? Then compare ticket prices here at SeatHound.com. 100’s of sellers, 1,000’s of tickets to every ALCS and NLDS game. Save time and money by comparing ticket prices at SeatHound.com!

There are so many great questions going into this playoff season.

Can the Giants and the Cardinals continue their dominance of the MLB Post season?
