Green Monstah website

Green Monstah

What's the Story?

When transitioning from a Windows PC to a Mac, the one thing that I missed was my live-updating desktop background using Rainmeter and a Photoshopped image of the famed Green Monster at Fenway Park (that I lovingly titled RainMonster). I decided to create a website that mimicked the functionality of my old desktop by converting it into a website. The page features a working scoreboard that scrapes the inning-by-inning scores of the current Red Sox game from the MLB website, and also displays any other games around the league (as well as the AL East standings), just like the real Green Monster scoreboard. 

The other (more hidden) feature of the site is that it is build completely without images. Everything is built with code, including the SVG Sox logo and the CSS scoreboard logos.
