So Irish Elvis had this great idea to have an awards show and roundtable discussion on Google+ using the Hangouts on Air feature. Fantastic idea, I thought, I’ve done hangouts before, I just have to link it up to the HLS G+ page and we are good.
All that was left was for me to send out the invites and then this happened:
Apparently, Google likes to hide everyone’s invites on profile pages instead of, you know, actually trying to notify them. So it took a while for us to both fight through it and figure it out.
Once we finally did, we got something going. We had the awards, talked some Notre Dame football, drank a lot, and just had a good time:
Thanks to everyone that tuned in. We will have to do things like this again in some fashion in the future now that we know how this (sort of) works.
Texan by birth, Irish by choice.
Born and raised in the great state of Texas, Tex is a first-generation Domer and a former student manager. After graduation, he left the cold winters of South Bend behind and returned back to his home state with a computer engineering degree in tow. Missing the daily grind of working football practices and talking football with fellow Irish fans every day, he took to blogging, a path which eventually led him to Her Loyal Sons. Continuously diving into stats and game film, Tex strives to break down every aspect of Fighting Irish football--even though it's determined to kill him.
