Site News - August 2013

August Update: And… school is back in session!  And thus goes any time for the website in the short term.  I was able to add a few sounds clips, but that was about the extent of the updates this month.  Time just slipped into the future too quickly.

 

Dive Bombing:  It’s been a post-All-Star game catastrophe for the Phils.  A second-half slide, punctuated by a long losing streak, has mired the team in fourth place in the division and ended any pipe dream of contending for a spot in the playoffs.

 

Media Update:  I have figured out the process I will take to create some YouTube audio clips from the Phantastic Phillies record, so hopefully that will come more regularly.  Of course, I am also looking for other YouTube videos, as well as other sources to include.

 

Digital Pictures Needed: I’d still love pictures of the 1980 season If you have something (for free – I’m poor and this is a non-profit site!), please let me know through the contact section.

 

Wanted: I am still looking for any and all articles from the 1980 season to include in the website.  In particular, I seek the Philadelphia papers, which I have very limited access to. Anyone that has copies of the Inquirer or the Daily News or other area newspapers please contact me – digital scans are fine by me (and in fact are preferable, as I don’t get in trouble with the wife for cluttering up the house!). I am also looking for any YouTube videos from the 1980 season, as Jimdo allows easy connection to these videos.

 

Future Updates: I was unable meet my monthly goal for July, as time was just too fleeting.  My goal for the rest of the year is to add five articles and two media clips per month.  I will also add game pictures as I find them, and may include clipped images of the newspapers from games as they are available.
