FOLLOWUP: Anyone up for friendly football competition?


Ok. For those who would like to try out this “sports” thing, we’ve set up a Pro Football Pick ‘Em Pool for this year. If you’d like to get in on it, all you have to do is head over to and sign up. There are no entry fees. We are hoping to get some sponsorship so that we can award prizes when it’s all said and done.

When you sign up, you will be asked for a password, which is: lumens.

If you are someone or a company who would like to sponsor the game, please send Fox an email.

Perhaps we’ll turn this into a fantasy league next year. I thought it was a little late to get that set up for this year.

Remember, there is nothing to lose, so it’s worth a try – even if you’re like Jim and haven’t a clue. Good luck!

Looks Like The Sacremento Kings ALSO Thought This Was Worthwhile

Remember when the Utah Jazz added all of that automation to their lighting and audio system for their games? It looks like the Sacremento Kings stole the idea…  It has been added to “boost the theatrical value” of the home games for the fans.

From the article:

The system, Germann said, “features two types of lighting instruments – one that can project full motion and real-time video on any surface (such as the court), and one designed specifically to cut through ambient and bright light, so fans can still see moving light even when the lights are up.”

My guess is DL2‘s or DL3‘s, maybe DML-1200’s, and some kind of hard edged yoke – like one of the new Clay Paky heads.  I could be wrong about the moving heads, but I bet I’m pretty close on the projector heads…
