Catherine Vivo / QB California Quake

The Quake hold a record of 1-3, getting beat in their season home opener to the Los Angeles Amazons and then falling the following week to the Sacramento Sirens.

Week 4 re-match game against the Amazons brought the Quake closer to a victory,  but still falling short with a 36-21 loss.   Deb was at that game doing the announcing for the Amazons that evening and had commented,  “If the Quake had not encountered some of the injuries to key players (referring to home opener April 11th game), they would have been up there with the Amazons.  An amazing accomplishment to swing back strong from injuries, the team made the game very exciting!”

Tune in tonight at 7pm (pst) at www.wfbtalkcontinues.com.  Chat Room will be open 15 minutes before air-time.

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).

Tune in Wednesday, February 18 at WFB Talk Continues 7pm(pst)/10pm(est)

First Audio Broadcast Games Announced

12 Jan

WFB Talk announced on Sunday’s show that Nancy and myself will be attending the California Quake vs Los Angeles Amazons game in Long Beach, CA Easter weekend for the first IWFL game of the 2009  season (Saturday, April 11th).

If you listened to our show then you know that teams agreed to this season opener date and all teams are traveling at a very close vicinity.  I kidded that Nancy and I would probably be traveling the farthest on that weekend (Sacramento to Long Beach approximately six hours).

It has been confirmed that Coach Josh Penn, Head Coach of the Quake lined up a play by play announcer for the game day broadcast.  I asked Coach Penn if I could hook up my computer in the booth to run the switchboard via my broadband wireless network card.

During the BlogTalkRadio show, SportsGeeks, I confirmed via their live chat board with Coach Dion Lee, that we will also do the Las Vegas Showgirlz vs California Lynx first game of the  WFA InAugural 2009 season (Saturday, April 18th).

I kidded with Coach Lee because, if you recall, he announced for us during the playoffs last year at the Los Angeles Amazons vs the H’Town Texas Cyclones as well as the first River City Bowl when his team was a member of the IWFL.

Original Audio Broadcast (March 15, 2008)

Five women football teams will travel in from all sides of the Colorado River from the Independent Women’s Football League to battle in the inaugural pre-season “River City Bowl”. Hear inside the huddle, strategy plays during live action play. This pre-season event to be hosted by Coach Lee and the Las Vegas Showgirlz.

Update (video added of River City Bowl):

Coach Penn actually did announce the first half of his playoff game last year while coaching against the Dallas Diamonds.  Coach Lee assured me that he has a broadcaster, though I know he could just as easily do it himself as well.

Coach Lee also announced that he will be putting together another River City Bowl, within his new league division, to be held in Las Vegas, tentative date March 28th.  We will be there for that as well.  When more information is developed we will be sure to let you know.

As a reminder, we now have three BlogTalkRadio web sites.  WFB Talk, WFB Talk Continues and Independent Sports Network.  Be sure to keep up with the blog for the latest guests and games scheduled for the 2009 season.

WFB Talk is currently looking for WFB Correspondents to cover games.  Click HERE to learn more.  Also check out how you can become a TEXT Correspondent to submit scores to other subscribers. Click HERE.

Submitted by Nancy

As always throughout the year we take road trips to follow women’s football.  It has been in the works for the last two weeks, but it has been officially confirmed by all three of us:  Barb, Beebe, and I that our next road trip will begin tomorrow evening.  I am getting my suitcase out and writing my items to bring and not forget!
We confirmed the hotel reservation at a Clarion in Los Angeles on Monday and last night confirmed the vehicle we will be taking.  We will also be seeing our friend Andrea who lives down in the area as well.   
Later today I will prepare my Map Quest directions for the trip from Sacramento to LA.  We are leaving close to evening time as we are working a full day and we should arrive at the hotel around midnight.   
If anyone of you plan on going to the Quake/Showgirlz game we will be there and it will be great to meet you!
