Regret that there are not updates from the other diamonds during their games.  I am in the press box on diamond 1 with a good view of the field so can give a few updates from the games here.
This is the first year we have had an internet connection during the Legands, at the park. No more driving back and forth to the hotel!
We did a system upgrade at Phenix this week and installed a new Bell system and I brought along the spare Rogers Rocket Hub to the park to check it out.
Its working great. It can handle 6 computers at once. So far its just me and my side kick Kyle Smith who is testing it for on Sunday.

 Although we are working in the same press box as we have worked in three past great World Tournaments, its not quite the same, not by a long shot.
During WT`s the blue crew have a separate trailer for a change room. This weekened they have taken over the back half of the press box as a change room.
Can you spell ZOO !

 Love the Blue, but trying to work while they are having old home week every two hours can be challenging, LOL.
