I LOVE TECHNOLOGY
We just got back from Massachusetts where my high school senior had a football game Friday night. They lost and are now 2-1, but I was very impressed with Spencer. He plays defensive corner and has a very good feel for the position, knowing when to pass cover where he shut his man down, and when to play the run where he strung out everything that came around his end.
Spencer is my third son to play football, and I must say I am getting too old. The excitement and then the disappointment at their loss took its toll on me. By the games end I was a wreck. Still, I wish I could see all his games. It is a 6-7 hour drive from N.J. to Mass., and traffic is always a bitch. Then there is the expense; motel, gas, tolls, food…none cheap. So we have gone to only one game a year; this year as Spence is starting we will see three games.
Still it kills me to miss any games. For my other two boys I never missed a game and I videoed all of every game so we could watch and analyze it later. It pains me to miss this.
Then I discovered technology, or Spencer set me up. There is a service that, I assume for a fee, videos every game of almost every high school game played. The service is for the team, and I believe only the coaches and players have access. I am guessing there is a fee for every authorized viewer.
Keep it on the down low, but I have Spencer’s sign-on and password. I will be able to view his game almost immediately after the final gun. I won’t miss a play, and I can watch over and over like when I taped the games myself years ago.
I am very excited.
I love technology!
