Superbowl XLVI has a Social Media Command Center. Seriously. While you’re tossing back chicken wings and yelling at the television screen, a team of 50 will be monitoring the digital field from the comfort of their 2,300 square foot space in downtown Indianapolis.
It’s not surprising that hear that New York Rangers forward Sean Avery is at the centre of yet another controversy.
The 31-year-old former Vogue intern teamed up with the Human Rights Campaign and released a 30-second video for “New Yorkers for Marriage Equality” over the weekend, becoming the first professional athlete in New York to publicly support marriage equality. And according to the HRC, the Rangers, as an organization, are now rallying behind Avery in support of the campaign.
I have a confession: Superbowl XLV is 3 days away and I don’t know which teams are playing. I didn’t know last year either, but I attempted to hide my indifference by bringing a hideous football cake to the party. Unfortunately, it was so over-iced and under-baked that only one person tried it. So instead of passing myself off as a quiet fan with amazing baking skills, I became “the girl who brought the cake.
And I still never figured out who was playing.
With the 2009-2010 NHL (National Hockey League) regular season beginning tonight and Stikky Media being located in Canada, hockey is all the buzz today. It’s a fresh new season and everyone has big plans for their club. I thought a hockey post with a Social Media twist would suit todays mood. Businesses and teenagers are not the only people embracing the Social Revolution. You can find your favorite hockey players on Twitter, Facebook, Team and Personal Blogs, and all over the internet. And you can find every team on YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and pretty much anywhere else you can imagine on the internet.
