Reporting live from the Huron football game

On Thursday, I will accompany our sports editor, Terry Jacoby, to the Ann Arbor Huron High School football game against Monroe High. It’s not that I enjoy or even follow sports, but I am on a mission. I am on a mission to show him how much fun it will be to engage the audience throughout the game with Tweets, Facebook updates, video that can be uploaded a half-time, and maybe a live chat or some phonecasts.

I need to download some video conversion and photo conversion software on my Netbook, and test the phonecast off my iPhone via ipadio.com. I also need to find out if the River Rats have a hash tag search known on Twitter, probably #RiverRats, but I’ll look into it. I also need to post on Facebook that we will be doing this. If it’s a success — and I am sure it will be — I’ll accompany a different sports reporter covering another team next Friday. I’ll also do more planning, and let readers know via the print product to be looking for our live coverage.

Well, wish me luck. I think this is my first football game in at least 15 years. Too bad I never learned the game, even as a cheerleader in seventh grade. I remember cheering “First and Ten, Let’s Do It Again,” and there was no first in 10. Whatever that is.
