You’re sitting in the bleachers watching your high school play Friday night.
They score! They take the lead!
But while you wait for the ensuing kickoff you can’t help but think, “I know the score here, but I wonder how all the other teams in the area are faring?”
Lucky for you the Mercury is here to help.
Just pull out your smartphone. You’re only a few clicks away from getting the scoop on every team in the area.
New for the 2012 season, the Mercury sports department has launched Mercury Sports Live, a website dedicated to up-to-the-minute coverage from games featuring every area team and beyond. Mercury Sports Live will feature video previews and updates from select games as they happen, as well as photos, updates and the twitter feed of our reporters as they report from the sidelines of each game.
Throughout the coming weeks Mercury Sports Live will feature sports editor Don Seeley’s comprehensive coverage, “No Huddle” player profile videos, game preview videos and more to meet your high school football needs.
Follow @PottsMercSports and the members of the Mercury’s sports staff on Twitter for live updates straight from the source as it happens.
Even before the games @PottsMercSports will be getting you fired up for the action with questions and giveaways to reward fans for getting in the game with the Mercury. We will be tweeting out questions like “How many totals points will teams from the PAC-10 score this weekend?” Tweet back at us with your guess and use the hashtag #MercPerk and you could be a winner of our T-shirt giveaway!
C’mon, who doesn’t like a free T-shirt?
Our Twitter feed is your window into the Mercury sports department. Ask us questions, give us your updates, and let us know what you want to see on the site.
You can’t get this kind of high school football coverage anywhere else — and you won’t need to even look elsewhere once you catch a glimpse of Mercury Sports Live.
Of course, you can still pick up the Mercury every Saturday for the most comprehensive football coverage, including complete game stories, boxscores, and the exceptional photography you have come to expect from The Mercury.
The only difference is on Friday night, where you can not only watch your favorite team play, but you can get in on the rest of the action.
So keep it locked on mercurysportslive.blogspot.com, follow us on Twitter @PottsMercSports, and get in the game all season.
