Week 2 Game Live On The Internet

The game of the week for the Thumb Tailgater Sports Network is Bad Axe @ Vassar.

Can the Hatchets make it two straight for the first time since 2007 and and start off 2-0, since 2001 where they won six straight and went 7-3 for that year? Have the planets in the universe aligned? Mr. Spock of Vulcan land doesn't think so, but the Hatchets just might have enough to chop away the naysayers...

TUNE IN LIVE ON THE INTERNET! Pre-Game Show starts at 6pm!

Debut Game Rocky Start....But Ended Good

We had a shaky debut for the first Thumb Area live Internet broadcast of high school football ; Deckerville vs Sterling Heights Parkway Christian. In the beginning of the broadcast things started sounding like it was in slow motion drag, and choppy...but it improved after about 25 minutes. So all in all it turned okay in the end. The next game should be more clearer.
On Sunday, I will post what the next game will be. Most teams are playing on Thursday, due to the Labor Day Weekend. Thanks to all who tuned in when it was live and I apologize for the mishaps. It is a work in progress but I promise it will improve!
For all the Deckerville & Parkway Christian fans, I will edit the archived game and have all polished up for you to download later.

Here is the Pre-Game Interview with Head Coach Bill Brown. This one is clean and not all slow and skippy and a gargled mess that it was in the beginning of the internet broadcast.

Kinde-North Huron vs Marine City Cardinal Mooney Audio

So we did another system test to work the "kinks" and it worked out good. I want to thank the fine people and staff at Kinde-North Huron High School for their assistance.
It was a great game for North Huron as they defeated Cardinal Mooney 45 - 20, for the official start of the high school football season in the Thumb area.
I also want to thank Chris Ogryski of the Huron County Press and Paul Adams of the Huron Daily Tribune for also helping me out. The return of the Thumb Tailgaters was fun on Thursday night.
This is my first time doing play by play so it is going to be a work in progress for me. So please bear with me...
The sound quality is a bit off as I had to save it to a smaller scale in order to post them here. During a live game, I think you will be pleased and also to remind you again that all the games on Thumb Tailgater Sports will be archived for you later at our streaming host site.
On that note here is the audio from the North Huron game. Enjoy!

Thumb Tailgater Debuts!!

Thumb Tailgater is born and debuts!! Focused on the high school football season of thumb area schools in the Greater Thumb Conference, North Central Thumb League, and a little bit of the Blue Water Conference.
The specialty & service here on this blog is that Thumb Tailgater will be bringing you a game of the week on the Internet with live streaming audio play by play!

Video will be coming soon in the future!!

There will also be some specials that will have either audio, video or photo segments devoted the love of other sports, special events, or human interest stories. It is a big undertaking, but I am running with it!
More details will be coming on the time & dates with links for fans on where to tune in on the Internet. Another added bonus is that all games will be archived and will be free for those high school sports fans to download and keep!!
The long awaited return of the "Pre -Game Thumb Tailgate Sports Show" that use to be featured on WLEW Cruise 102.1 FM out of Bad Axe, MI; will also have a weekly podcast featuring local thumb area media personnel!
The game of the week starts Friday, August 28th, 2009! Eagles vs Eagles!

Deckerville Eagles vs Sterling Heights Parkway Christian Eagles.
Last years meeting between these two teams was a barn burner! Deckerville came out on top winning big on the road 54-47. This year SHPC comes to Deckerville's homefield looking for some revenge in this big rematch!
