A Note from Mr. Coppenrath (Taylor's Dad)

When Taylor and I were leaving the facility after today's game there was a small crowd of fans waiting for him, and a line of young children with pens looking for his autograph (see photos ); one of the young women said to me, "he is our best player!" and I said, "he is my son!"... ;-)

Love that! :)

Game on Sunday!

Taylor's Dad sent an email making it easy for everyone to watch Taylor's next game, it's a big one!

Taylors next game is Sunday, 11/16/08 at 6:30 am Eastern time. They are playing Melilla which is the number 2 team in the League (Alicante is currently #1); also former team mate Keith Waleskowski now plays for Melilla.
Here is a link to the video stream:
find the list of games on the right side; click on the "Lucentum Alicante" game; that will open up the video of the game inside the TV screen. Taylor is #15, usually wears high white socks with black ankle braces...
click on "El Equipo" (the team in Spanish) on the left to see the roster there...
Also there is an interesting website that I open and place beside the video stream on my monitor; it provides play by play narrative and a live box score; with several other tabs of data at the top...
click on the En Vivo button in the middle of the scoreboard and it will open up the live play by play, etc. for that game. You can pick the screen that gives you the best analysis; I like the live box score with running narrative under it; you can scroll back in the narrative if you miss something.
Sometimes one of the feeds is ahead of the other... makes it more interesting...
And finally, here is a link to the schedule (calendar) of games; be sure and change the season to 2008/2009 at the top right; you can see the dates and times of all future games; and by clicking on the tiny notebook in the front of games all ready played, you can view the box scores for that game:

A Note from Taylor

Hi everyone, Our home game this weekend was conflicting with a soccer game in Alicante so they changed the game to Saturday night at 830 pm. So for those of you who cant convert the time it would be 230pm eastern time. Hope everyone can watch!

Also... remember to VOTE today!
