Hi, guys. I am sure Shannon has written his post already about how much fun the Award Show/Fan get together was and his thoughts on it. So I just want to thank everyone who came out and supported us and I hope everyone enjoyed it like we did. I apologize now to you fine folks for not having music cued up and ready to go as soon as @lagranderusty accepted his award. MY BAD.
Anyhoo, I decided to use Ustream to broadcast the awards live Saturday night.I was able to record it while we were filming and it is on the Ustream site as we speak. One problem though, for some reason it doesn’t seem like it can be played on smartphones from Ustream.
Here is the Ustream feed:
And if that doesn’t work here is a version I put on vimeo that isn’t as good
but is still viewable if you do not want to sit at a computer to watch it.
Shannon here – what I think makes the most sense for the readers is that I am going to save most of my recapping for Monday (when people can digest text and pictures at work) so that the post gets read…but since it is harder to watch 20 minutes of video at work we’ll share that with you today!
I think the event worked really well – more on that tomorrow – and thanks to Media Goon and Darren for pushing the idea – and Media Goon for doing all the actual work.
This was all for fun, we aren’t that full of ourselves. Just enjoy it for what it was – a cool hangout of Mets fans in the middle of winter.
More recaps tomorrow, probably links to other bloggers’ recaps, and a few awards that we didn’t think would work at the live ceremony.
My book! $9 for paperback, $3 for eBook/kindle.
