Live Blog: Lincoln Stars at Sioux Falls Stampede 10/30

I'm excited to say that we're going to try something new for this game here at the "Black and Blue." I recently discovered a free application I can use to blog live during the game, instead of using the "Comments" section of the blog article. This is something very new to me, so I will be using it as another trial run.

With this new feature, our comments will stream live during the game like an instant message. No more checking for new comments, it all happens live on this page. You won't need to sign up for anything, or even provide your email address to comment. Just type in a name, and post your comment.

Give it a try! The live blog will begin at 7pm Friday night. I hope to see you all there!

Thanks to everyone who stopped by and commented tonight. Although the game wasn't that great, it was fun to interact with all the other Lincoln fans.

With this new chat application, you can go back and view all of the comments made throughout the game after it is over. Pretty cool!

We'll do this again next Tuesday night when the Stars travel to Kearney to battle the Tri-City Storm.

Go Stars.

tweeb the lancer only gave them one point, they won the shoot out so they still got two points out of the game.

I also do live blogs for the Fargo Force games from the UP Center in Fargo, ND. It was interesting to see how you used the same program, CoverItLive, as a chat room.
