I Was Ready For Some Football!

Howdy fine folks! It’s me again. I know it’s been a while but I’ve been busy getting ready to help support our distribution partners. I’ve also been spending a lot of time with the SHOWWX laser pico projector, which is what I wanted to talk a little about today.
I’ve been using the SHOWWX on a daily basis. It’s just starting to get to the time of year that by the time I get home it’s dark out so I’ve been using the SHOWWX while I walk the dog to watch TV on my Windows Mobile phone via Slingbox. It works great and I don’t miss anything. I get some funny looks sometimes from people coming home from work but for the most part it’s been great!
More recently I was in San Francisco for my last hurrah before my wife gives birth in January. I was staying at my best friend’s place which is across the street from the AT&T Park where the SF Giants play. We heard some noise coming from over there so we went to investigate. It turns out that this new football league was playing there called the UFL. We stood in this area underneath the outfield wall and watched some of the game. I soon realized that the University of Washington Husky game was about to begin, but we didn’t feel like leaving quite yet. So I pulled out my phone, got the game up via my Slingbox, and then connected the SHOWWX to it and voila! College football on the wall!
We kept going back and forth between watching the field and watching the wall. Pretty soon we had 8-9 people around us doing the same thing. The live game in front of us was starting to wind down so we decided to go back to his place. On the way back we watched the UW game on the sidewalk. As we went into his garage and started to go into the building proper UW was getting ready to start a play so I stopped and put the image up on the wall right before we went in. Jake Locker took the snap and threw a 49 yard pass for a touchdown. We were jumping up and yelling in the middle of the garage! It was a funny sight, but my buddy put it best, “With that thing (the SHOWWX) you’ll never miss the big moment of a game and can share it with those around you!”.
I couldn’t have put it better myself. Have a great weekend!
