A Full Football Day

19 Apr

Yesterday Nancy and I had a rare treat.  We got to participate in two women’s tackle football games at the same time.  We were broadcasting LIVE on WFB Talk Continues, Las Vegas Showgirlz vs California Lynx as well as attend the Sacramento Sirens vs California Quake Game.

Nancy was unable to take pictures and I had my hands tied running the switchboard for Lawrence Turner, who was broadcasting for the Showgirlz.  The game actually extended beyond the Sirens vs Quake game and I had to go to my car for the additional 25 minutes to finish the broadcast so they could shut down the pressbox.  To listen to the LIVE Audio Broadcast of the Las Vegas Showgirlz vs the California Lynx, Click HERE.  Be sure to go to 2nd Half to hear remainder of the game.

During both games, I got to twitter the Sirens/Quake Game as well as the Showgirlz/Lynx Game.

Next week Nancy, Beebe and I will be at the Modesto Maniax vs Tucson Monsoon.  We are still working out the details about the broadcast, but you can find score results at www.twitter.com/wfbtalk if we don’t.

Since we got the pictures of the Sirens/Quake Game that we promised on today’s show (WFB Talk), here is the twitter blasts that we published during the game (reads from end of game to the beginning).
