ESPN Ticker/Wedding Table Card

I have built a scrolling marquee LED matrix all enclosed in a custom oak box. The matrix is driven by a Raspberry Pi. The project is coded entirely in Python. It currently is set to pull from ESPN's API every 15 minutes and display the current news ticker (filtered for Cincinnati Bearcats). Also been used as a clock. I also have it setup to be used in my wedding this summer. Guests will scan their table cards (via bar-code scanner) and the Pi will display the appropriate table number.
