Live Webcast of Friday's match

Post by SoreKnees on Mon Nov 24, 2008 2:16 pm

From the Stanford Web site:

STANFORD, Calif. - The 2008 NCAA DI Women's Soccer Championship quarterfinal match between Stanford and Portland will be played Friday, Nov. 28 at 7 p.m. at the Cardinal's Laird Q. Cagan Stadium.

Fans should be advised to purchase tickets in advance to avoid waiting in long lines on game day. Tickets can be purchased from 9 p.m. - 4 p.m. Monday through Wednesday at the Stanford Athletics Ticket Office (located at Gate 2 on the south end of Stanford Stadium), at the soccer box office on game day, online, or by calling 1-800-STANFORD. The Ticket Office will be closed on Thursday and Friday in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday.

All seats are general admission and the first 1,500 fans to arrive will have access to seating, while any late arriving fans will be directed to standing room only. Be advised that purchasing a ticket in advance guarantees you admittance to the facility but does not guarantee you a seat. Prices are $8 for adults, and $5 for students, youth, and seniors.

Any fans that are unable to attend the match can follow all the action online through CBS College Sports GameTracker live stats or via a live webcast. The links for both the live stats and webcast will be available later this week on the Stanford women's soccer online schedule. [Emphasis added.]

Let's hope that "webcast" means video and not just audio, since Comcast SN will be busy with basketball that night.

That's great news! Either audio or video is infinitely better than Game Tracker.

I watched the Stanford Rutgers game vie the webcast and it wasn't half bad... even had multiple camera angles.

The Pilots' site links to live audio for Friday's match. Does anyone know if that is a Portland broadcast or will link to Stanford's?

For those of us cheapskates....the Stanford-Rutgers video was offered for free. This may also be the case for the Pilot game.

I'm still hoping the UP will do something to allow folks to come there and watch.

The webcast should be free. It's via CBS Sports All-Access. You will need to download/install the Microsoft Silverlight plug-in for your browser. (It's similar to what NBC used for the Olympics.)

I think tournament webcasts are under the control of the NCAA and are all free.

I watched both the Notre Dame and Stanford games last weekend on the CBS All-Access for free. Norte Dame had their own announcers who were really homers and not particularly soccer knowledgeable. Stanford had no play by play announcers, just someone who came on when there was a substitution, otherwise you just heard the sounds from the field and the crowd, it was a nice change after the ND announcers.

I wonder if UP is doing a webcast? They have in the past for playoff games like this...

A_Fan I had the same experience as you. Notre Dame announcers were so whiney and bad I was sick. It was a relief somewhat to be free of that for the Stanford game but as it went on I realized there was a guy sitting there with an open mic with absolutely nothing to say. I was astounded that someone couldn't have at least identified the players involved in the plays. It would have been nice.

At Portland we have Adam and Jason both of which are capable of calling a game. You would think Stanford would have similar people. Makes you appreciate them more. Not just for the soccer, these guys follow all sports. Man it must be great to have a wide variety of sports expertise.

No one has mentioned this but the James Madison broadcast had someone unfamiliar with the Pilots broadcasting the game. He was butchering Kassi's name every two minutes was having trouble with separating Sarah Jackman and Janelle Jacka. Then went on to prounouce Janelle's last name as Jay kuh. It was really weird at this point in the season.

Um... excuse me... aren't you forgetting the play-by-play guy that they occasionally call in from the bullpen? Smile

Yeah sorry. I also forgot Angela Harrison who filled in for a sick Adam for the Texas game who did a really bang up job I thought. Funny her voice is raspy from all those years as a GK. I guess that stays with you.

Well I'm always at the match, so I don't know what you sound like.

You'd be more memorable if you had a catchphrase. Something like, "And boom goes the dynamite!" when the Pilots score. lol!

(Don't tell me you haven't seen that with all the time you spend on YouTube...)

Ha ha... no, I never did have a catch phrase. Except for my use of "razzle dazzle" as much as possible. And, of course, "Helllllloooooo Pilot fans."

Adam had the best... after Rapinoe scored one time, he said "And take a bow Megan Rapinoe!"

Oh, and of course I know "boom goes the dynamite"... probably the most epic fail ever. I especially loves when he starts trying to do the play-by-play on the highlight reel... just amazing.

you could borrow John Madden's "Boom"
"You know that Megan Rapinoe she plays like a big ole offensive lineman. You know down in the trenches."

And then there would be the endless Brett Farve references.

Reminds of an SNL sketch where they spoofed Monday Night Football:

"What you have with Brett Favre is, he's a quarterback who can throw the ball to his receivers. When these receivers can catch the ball, they can gain yards and score touchdowns. That gives you a good chance to win the game."

Very Happy

Let's see if we can bend this back to soccer. Imagine John Madden doing the color on a Pilots game? "What you have with Megan Rapino is, she's a midfielder who can pass and kick the soccer ball, when she kicks the ball at the goal and it goes in you get goals. That gives you a good chance to win the game.:

Easy, eh?

If it were anything like football, I suspect the commentary will be something to the effect of:

At the end of the day, this game will come down to not letting the other team score goals. And that goes for both teams.

The team that scores no goals is going to have a VERY hard time winning this soccer game.

Regardless of who you are pulling for, clearly these are two teams who have come to play soccer.

...And when the ball hits the post--BOOM--and when it rebounds--BOOM.

When you're playing good soccer, it's good soccer. And if you're not playing good soccer, than it's really not good soccer.

That Megan Rapinoe is fast. And if you can run fast, than you've got a fast player who can score fast.
