Live Blog/Chat - Lincoln Stars at Green Bay Gamblers 11/20

I'm happy to say we'll be doing a live blog/chat again tonight for the Stars game against the Green Bay Gamblers. I continue to receive a lot of positive feedback from folks who really enjoy this new feature. We've seen this grow as well every time we've used it. The first time we tested it out against the Sioux Falls Stampede on 10/30, we had 550 comments posted. On 11/3 against the Tri-City Storm, we had 736 comments posted. The last time we used this for the Waterloo game on 11/7, we had 905 comments posted. So we are growing in visitors and comments each week, which is encouraging. I'm glad so many people like it. In the Waterloo game, we actually had Stars fans chatting from as far away as San Diego, California and Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. David Reekie's father was nice enough to stop by and chat with us a bit also.

It doesn't look like I'll have time to write up a pregame report for the two weekend games against the Gamblers. If the Stars can get at least 2 points out of the two games, I will be happy. I'm sure the win against Waterloo last Saturday night gave the team a much needed boost of confidence, which hopefully will carry on into this big weekend series against the Gamblers. Faceoff for the game tonight is at 7:05pm.

Check back here at 7pm tonight to join in the conversation.

Go Stars!

Thank you, mom! Where at are you in WA? I lived in the Seattle area for about 6 years. I miss it soooo much! I plan on moving back there, hopefully soon. I miss the trees, the mountains, and the ocean!
