Today marks opening day for the 2012 Major League Baseball season. For those of you who know me, you are aware that I am a huge Phillies fan, and a fan of baseball in general. This morning I shared a post on Twitter with some friends regarding Social Media & Baseball with some of my other good social media friends, Brad Nix, David Marine, & Matthew Shadbolt.
Upon sharing this infographic which I found entertaining & informative, the regular good old smack talking began across the Twitter Universe. See, Matthew is a Yankees fan, David is a Mets fan (poor guy) and well Brad, he’s from Atlanta, so you guessed it, he has his beloved Braves.
While the smack talk continued, I decided it was time for us to put up or shut up so I asked them all if they are interested in rewarding the winner of the season by writing a blog post on their site talking about how wonderful the other team is, how great their fans are, and how that person is such a great person for being a fan of that team… IF they win the World Series. So far, Matthew has agreed to the challenge.
David on the other hand, well, he already bowed out knowing that his Mets are terrible and he has zero chance. He was though rather proud of the stadium food at Citi Field. We still wait to see if Brad will join in on the fun.
So would you like to join in with Matthew & I? If so, leave a comment below with who your favorite team is.
