Working with / Importing (Football) CSV Packages into SQL DB with the sportdb gem(s)

Hello, I’ve written up / published a new from zero / scratch getting started guide for importing football.csv packages into an SQL database. The example uses all English football leagues, clubs and matches (from 1888-89 to today). The steps include: Step 0: Setup - Install the Sport.db Libraries ++ Step 1: Download (or Clone) the CSV Package / Datasets ++ Step 2: Add the Import / Build Script ++ Step 3: Kick off and Run.
