View Full Version : Special thanks to ZagMan in Philly

12-02-2009, 01:14 PM
I posted this on another thread but wanted to also acknowledge ZIP in its own thread for those who didn't read the other thread, because the services he provides us fans aare just extraordinary.

In addition to providing livestreaming on justin.tv to all the games he's able to access (http://www.justin.tv/phillyzag), he has also uploaded many complete Zags games to youTube, so if you miss them live, you can console yourself within a short time after the games by viewing them on YouTube.

Check Palktrans Channel on Youtube for a listing. Games are usually listed in nine-part segments, unless they go overtime, like the Colorado game, which is in 15 segments. If you haven't already done so, I recommend you bookmark the link to his channel below.

Again, all praise and thanks are due to ZagMan In Philly for his extraordinary efforts on behalf of the Zag community! I don't know if three bona fide miracles are required to be proven to nominate ZagMan In Philly for sainthood, but canonization shouldn't be far off!

Agreed! ZagMan has truly been extraordinary in his coverage of GU basketball, and a God-send for those of us who no longer reside within the 509 (and other areas that receive regular TV coverage).

+ 1 For sure...

Ya the guy and his work is awesome! Question though, since I usually am staying up till 5 in the morning watching games, how long after the game finishes are the uploads on youtube up? and do the uploads say the score on them or who wins? I would love not to have to wake up so early to see the games, but dont really want to see the score before i see the game. Once again, you are the man zag man in philly! :000tens:

12-02-2009, 01:51 PM
My experience is that the games aren't up on YouTube right away. I think it's a fairly complicated process and somewhat time-consuming, all the more reason to bow down before the great and powerful ZIP.

For game scores, you can always check on ESPN's Gonzaga page (http://scores.espn.go.com/ncb/clubhouse?teamId=2250).

The Justin.TV streams are great, much appreciated.

12-02-2009, 01:56 PM
I bet its a long process. I will stay up 2nite then. Whats three less hours of sleep anyways? Im young. I can handle it. Thanks ZIP

I think ZagMan streams the game live and Paulktran uploads the games to YouTube after the game is over. Thanks to both for the service. It takes a while to put the game on YouTube because the feed has to be digitized, then uploaded to YouTube. In addition, he has to split the uploads because there's a ten-minute limit on segments. True dedication.

You are welcome! Just want to spread Zags Basketball as far as possible for every game. I have got to know so many many Zags fans from across the globe, just amazing. Enjoy!:)

Just in case it's not clear, paraphraphrasing Grady from the Shining, "Paulktrans is ZagMan In Philly! He's always been ZagMan In Philly!"

I was vaguely aware of that, but his is clearly a two-person job, so I remained confused. All clear now. :)

ZMiP... Next time you are in NY I will buy you a beer or three. You coming up 95 for the Duke game?

12-02-2009, 09:00 PM
Thanks a ton ZIP, from Berkeley CA. I couldn't press on without the Zags. Like hydrogen bonding solvents and sp3 hybridized non-metals, you make life possible for me.

Yes, will be there with wife and two young sons...wife is a Temple grad, but now a converted Zag fan (does she have a choice???) :)

I'll PM you when it gets closer.

12-03-2009, 06:03 AM
thanks again philly!

12-03-2009, 06:11 AM
ditto Phil.....will u have the Dvdson game?

12-03-2009, 06:21 AM
Yes, I think so...found out that it will be on FSN, and not CBS regional game...:)

12-03-2009, 06:36 AM
ZMIP, you're the best!

Any chance the WSU game will be uploaded to Youtube in the next couple days? Would love to watch and rewatch that 2nd half vs Cougs. Man, Bouldin was amazing and Elias was a sight to see. Good stuff.

Thanks again, your videos and online streams are a true luxury.

To reiterate the obvious, I would miss at least half the GU games this season if it were not for you. ALSO, I really appreciate you banning some of the commentary, I focus almost solely upon the game, but some of the running comments are so vile that one almost wonders if internet anonymity is a good thing. For those that don't know, there are unspeakable comments that flutter in and Zagman bans them or warns them or erases them, this is almost as good a service as providing the game. To think that some adults write that stuff is just incredible.

Given the quality links provided in this thread & the number of views it has already received, it might not be a bad idea to "sticky" for awhile. At least until everyone has a chance to bookmark the links. Just a suggestion.

I can't bring my son and we are eight blocks from MSG haha-To little!-Eleven months and the noise would scare him so I hear!-

My boys are 6 and 4 so I hope they will be ok at the Garden. If not, perhaps their mom will entertain them somehow. They do watch the games with me on TV sometimes, and got the cheers down pretty good: "Go Zags!" and "Go Gonzaga".

My hope is to download all Zags Games onto Youtube, at least the games we won. My wife thinks I am crazy....i think she is right! Still want to download the Wisconsin, Mich State, and WSU games into Youtube this week. I have the system down, so it is not too much trouble really.

Streaming is fun, got to meet lots of cool people, and banned quite a few bad ones...I guess being an engineer, there is a little geekiness inside of me.....:) , once it has to do with streaming and youtube stuff, but I enjoy it.

Hope to meet some of you here in MSG on Dec 19th.

Go Zags!

Your "geekiness "is much appreciated up here in BC Zagman. Last year most of us Canucks were able to see the games via satellite but this year, well, not so much.
