Waiting for what seems like an eternity for tonight’s 7 p.m. kickoff of the Linfield at Occidental football game. I’ve always favored day games over night contests, simply because when game day finally does roll around, you want to get to the field and get the game going, not sit around.
This is the second time in as many weeks that Linfield is taking on a nationally ranked opponent. This should be another enlightening opportunity to see just how good this Wildcats club really is.
The team is spending the day in meetings and “step-its,” their term for walking through each alignment, formation and play they intend to see or use.
Dave Hansen and Tyler Matthews will bring you the Linfield-centric play-by-play on KLYC and our internet stream. Last week’s audio streaming hiccups should be resolved.
A TV station here in LA is intending on streaming live video of the game. You’ll need Microsoft Silverlight software installed on your computer to make it run properly.
I’ll be on the field snapping photos and shooting some video, so there won’t be a live in-game blog going on. We are able to do that for home games only.
Heading over to the pregame barbeque on the Oxy campus, hosted by the College Relations office. About 80 people are signed up to attend, plus there should be some walkups, which means the Wildcats will have some fans in the stands rooting for them tonight.
Lots of college football going on in close proximity today, with Lewis & Clark playing at Pomona-Pitzer, Puget Sound visiting Claremont-Mudd-Scripps, Pacific Lutheran heading to Cal Lutheran, and UCLA hosting Kansas State tonight in the Rose Bowl. And just down the road, the Dodgers and Giants are selling out Dodger Stadium.
