Girmindl's Ghost

A diary of Shaker High School's 2005-2006 basketball season, a retelling of Shaker's fabled 1979-1980 season, and general commentary on high school hoops, updated daily...

"I like sitting in the back row. I found that sitting against the wall is just easier on your back." -Dean Smith, on the comfort of the H-gym bleachers

Sounds of the 6th man...

Sounds of the student section: When I sat in the student section on Friday night, I took my Ipod with me in order to record some spontaneous interviews. Turns out that I forgot to shut it off after one pre-game interview. That means I have about 9 straight minutes of random 6th man stuff from during warmpus. It's rough and overloads alot, but you can get a taste of what it's like up there. Hey, if Sgt. Pepper can use audio to approximate an acid trip...

Try this: first, connect some headphones to your computer. Turn them up loud. Then close your eyes and pretend it's 90 degrees and you're standing on some bleachers with 100 or so teenagers surrounding you. Then listen to this. (It's a 5mb file, so be patient)

Remember, it's only during warmups, not the actual game. Here's a transcript you can follow:

T - 0:01: I interview two girls about "Sevens" and talk to some other kids.
T - 2:16: Beginning of ear-splitting screams during senior night presentations.
T - 5:20: I do a quick interview with two girls decked out in Hans' gear.
T - 7:05: 6th man begins individual player shout-outs during team warmups.

There's a lot of dead time, and I turned it off before th game started, but it's still pretty good. I'm hoping to have some pictures from the student section soon.
