Alright, I've been contemplating this for a while now, and I have come to the conclusion that I am going to make a (hopefully consistent) weekly video blog about the team and everything going on around it. I have a pretty decent webcam and hope to get another soon.

Please provide me in this thread any (reasonable) input of things you would like to see. If anyone wants to help out with this, let me know. I could always use witing contributors.

I will also be acceptong PMs with commentary from selected users each show to hope to provide my two cents or at least try to provide some. I planned this video blog to start no sooner than two weeks before the season starts.

I will also put up a poll on what the title should be.

Thanks!

The videos will be hosted on YouTube (I'll obviously embed them into a thread), and I already have an account, but I am going to create one specifically for the blog.

"New Guy Weekly" would be ideal.

But other than that, "Pacers Weekly" would be very good.

I would really like for everyone to refrain from using inappropriate titles here.

You might run into some issues with the Pacers organization. Technically, they own all the video and any name associated with Pacers. I don't think you could consider any game footage or interviews as public domain. At the very least I would run it past them. Might save you some grief down the road.

But, some suggestions (no matter how bad they may be)

Fastbreaks
Full Court Press

I don't know what to name it, but do it and I'll sure as hell watch.

This is a great idea. For the past 5 or so seasons, I've been making Pacers Books. I cut out newspaper articles and boxscores of each game and important info and paste them in a notebook.

I like Pacers Weekly.

I vote for Inside Pacers Basketball. Don't do Pacers Weekly, cause if you happen to miss a week, people will call you a liar:D

I think they've always left me alone because I don't profit, or at least because I don't draw in any money at all.

That's good. Because I don't plan on collecting either.

I do plan on calling my ticket coordinator and will see if they can do anything (maybe put this up with Brunner's or IndyCornrow's blog).

Not really sure how far I'd get, but this is for the awesome people at PD primarily.

I'll gladly link the vid for you once it's posted here.

I'd also suggest avoiding the use of 'Pacers' in the name. I was thinking something along the lines of Blue and Gold Truth but Boom Goes the Duke Dynamite is now my leader in the clubhouse.

*Bump

So most of you guys have voted for Pacers Weekly. Per the guidance of Cornrows, I am going to name the show:

Blue & Gold Weekly


Thanks for your votes, and I really hope everyone would like to help out with the show.

I am making a question of the week feature on the show, so PM me your questions closer to when the show starts!

We are getting close, I just wanted to bump this up a little.

Anyone want to contribute to the first edition?

Also, I may change it to just a text-based blog and not a video blog. Until I start my new job I will not have enough money for a nice webcam.

The one on my laptop does well, and the software automatically posts it to YouTube, but I want one for my desktop as well.

It is still going to be called Blue and Gold Weekly.

***I asked Dun Dun at the Eagle Ranch party if he would like to answer a few questions for me before the games, he said he would most definitely like that. Eek! :)

I was advised to not use the team's name in the title of my blog, but that is a good one.

Read a few posts up.

I'm going to stick with just text until I start working at this new place. Until then video will be limited. Sorry to disappoint, but I'm working on waiting until I can afford a nicer webcam than just the one on my laptop.

Until then, I'll be doing text while adding my photos.
