Huron County Press News Story On Thumb Tailgater Sports

The Huron County Press has done a story on Thumb Tailgater Sports.
Check out it here, as they have a new layout to their website.

Or if your in the Huron County area, pick up a copy of the paper.

Deckerville headed back to NCTL?

Heard from a source that wheels were turning to maybe try to save football in the NCTL. One way was that Deckerville would be allowed to come back to the North Central Thumb League in the 2010 - 2011 season.
I will work to confirm that news.

Week 6 Edition Of Original Thumb Tailgaters Show

Part 1 of the Original Thumb Tailgaters show is located at the top of the right column of the blog. In this part we talk about the big game upsets involving Vassar vs Reese (Thumb Tailgater Sports Week 5 Game), and the Bad Axe Hatchet win over Bay City All Saints, the continued dominance of the Lakers, Ubly & Brown City.

**Editors note - In the Original Thumb Tailgaters Show podcast, Editor Chris Ogryski of the Huron County Press, mentions that he and his wife Jill, were expecting their second child at any moment. Well as of 5:30pm, Tuesday, Sept.29th, they were at the hospital. I will keep you Thumb Tailgater fans posted.


For those on Facebook, photos are already up. She's a cutie! Hope Anne Ogryski was born at 11:22 p.m., she is 20 3/4 inches, 7 pounds 7 ounces. In a word, she's perfect!

Coverage starts at 6pm, Friday Night, and check back here on Tuesday for the Week 6 Edition of The Original Thumb Tailgaters Show.

Week 5: Original Thumb Tailgaters Show - Part 2

Part 2 of The Week 5 Edition of the Original Thumb Tailgaters Show is up. I have been happy with the embed player I have added. It is located at the right column of the blog.
In this Part 2 of the show we continue the review of Week 4, and discuss the major topic of the Reese Rockets, Elkton-Pigeon-Bayport -Lakers, and wrap up with the Vassar Vulcans. There are currently only three Thumb Area teams in the Greater Thumb Conference that are undefeated....the Ubly Bearcats, Brown City Greendevils, and the Reese Rockets. Lakers beware....!
Part 3 of the show will focus on the Thumb Tailgaters picks of Week 5 games.
And once again my special guest from WLEW Sports Radio, Rick Glaza will once again join me for our discussion on the coverage of our games of the week. This segment will also run at the top of the Pre-Game show live on Friday, Sept.25 - 6pm, at the Vassar Vulcans vs Reese Rockets football game.

Week 3 Review & Week 4 Game

I want to thank all who tuned in at Thumb Tailgater Sports, for the live internet stream of the Marlette vs Ubly game. Week 3 worked out great with virtually no glitches! I have now also upgraded some equipment on my laptop so we can add some features.

Week 4 has been scheduled - Kinde- North Huron vs Dryden.  North Huron is still in the hunt for the NCTL Title, but it all depends this Friday night against Dryden. Should be a good game! Coverage may start at about 5:45 pm this time as we had much to discuss for the Original Thumb Tailgaters Pre-Game Show, which will be posted on Wednesday.
Plus I will have an interview with Rick Glaza, play by play man on WLEW Cruise 102.1 FM. I will get his take on Friday on their coverage of the USA vs EPBP Lakers game, and his thoughts on the Thumb Tailgater Sports coverage of the North Huron vs Dryden game. It will be another welcomed addition to this blog.
Also in Week 4, my new official color commentator will debut! His name is Adam, and hails from Sandusky, MI. You will find out more about him soon.
Other news...Thumb Tailgater Sports will debut a new website this week! This blog limits me with certain elements and I need to expand. Don't worry this blog will still continue along with the new website

Vassar 42, Bad Axe 16

Vassar defense was able to keep the Bad Axe Hatchet out of the red zone at least twice inside the 5 yard from the endzone on 4th & goal!

Well, once again I experienced some slow sounding, jittering, interference on the live audio streaming of the game at Vassar. I apologize again.... I tried using a music player on the computer and opened a web page and that cause the interference. My fault. I am sorry for making it hard for you fans to listen. I will be bringing another computer to handle the music & free commercials I had to test out to play over the internet broadcast. However some things are improving. Just bear with me please....Thank you!
