Just like we did when we wrote our newsletter years ago, we will be featuring a memorable game from our 19+ years covering amateur and professional sports in Arizona, the Southwest and around the United States.
Game #662 marked our first foray into live broadcasting. This game was the first of a Women's and Men's basketball doubleheader between visiting Pima College and the host Mesa Community College Thunderbirds.
Thinking back to that game caused me to reflect on the various administrators that we have worked with. Allen Benedict was the Athletic Director at Mesa when we approached him about trying out our live Internet broadcasts. He was very kind and supportive of our efforts and over the next two years as we covered football, basketball and baseball never failed to check in with us to see how things weer going.
The first live broadcast was a challenge. While we are notorious planners, things came up that we didn't think of and a couple of things came up because we didn't know enough to. The funniest thing that happened (it wasn't funny at all at the time) was our struggle to find an acceptable phone line. Our gear handled analog and digital phone lines but the analog line required an access code to dial an outside area code and the closest digital line was shared and on the opposite of the gym. We finally found someone with an access code and got the game on the air. Things smoothed out over time and that game helped to prepare us for many other challenges that have since come our way.
