Does anyone know anyone who can help our troops in Vallejo?

I know that they will cover MNF, and from my experience with Armed Forces TV overseas they do cover most SNF and MNF.

Another thing you can do is someone can chip in for a sling box if they have a strong internet connection.

or justintv.com/sports

or sticktv.net

Depending where they are, they may have intermittent internet connectivity, and even if they have it , it could be the military network that blocks streaming video.

yeah the network my parents got on (which isn't military related) asks them not to stream, but they are going to get their own DSL. Its nice to skype with them but they can't really stream live through their web browser. I'm just saying the internet offers the best chance to watch the game live.

What are you trying to say Kid?

By the way, I just spoke with my sales rep at 49er HQ who referred me to the right person who takes care of military requests.

I sent the info to Matt. Hopefully, they will take care of Major Hogan and his squad.

webzone power right there.
I'm a film editor so I know lots of people who are capable of doing it. I passed that letter along to some friends. Hopefully they will have the time to do it. If I had the time, I would do it for free. Support the troops!
Vallejo native here!

I just read an article that Jahvid Best's family lives in Vallejo, and that Jahvid trains by running up the steep hills of Georgia St. I remember having to run those hills during "hell week" at wrestling practice!

You got a tissue? I got some brown on my nose...

I'd do it again in a snap for the troops!

ONly catch is that the games aren't available live, but if they are willing to wait on someone from the 49ers to send them teh games on DVD, I'm sure they wouldn't mind waiting the few hours of maybe a day to get the game online. All they would need is a laptop to plug into the plasma TVs they have and show the games on them. Sounds like the easiest and most legal way to handle this.

  • Info N/A
I gave this info to my brother as well and he's working on it as he has contacts with both the Niners and the Niner broadcast team. Someone is going to make this happen for them.
