Tailgate Warriors

Tailgate Warriors Judge Marcellus Wiley has Spiritof12

How did Sports Techie end up on the set of the Food Networks show, “Tailgate Warriors (TW) with Guy Fieri” and meet the guy my bro says is ESPN’s best football analyst and dat dude, Marcellus Wiley?

It was because of sports technology, Spiritof12 and as coach Pete Carroll says, “Always Competing.”

The best helmets in the world cannot prevent concussions

Sports Techie took a tour of the Seattle Seahawks Virginia Mason Athletic (VMAC) Field in Renton, WA with their VP of Community Relations, Mike Flood, in order to capture the Spiritof12 and see some of the Hawks sports technology.

First thing to report, I saw Head Coach Pete Carroll talking on the stair case to someone below.We made no eye contact but I heard his voice and that got my heart pumping. There’s no way that I was pulling out my iPhone to record or take a picture of him. That would be considered bad Sports Techie form. This was a good start though.

Mike explained to Sports Techie that the Spiritof12 concept is a micro site focused on the fans. This gives the fans a platform and social media to call their own.

Inflatable Seahawks football game with FSN at Cablepalooza

The first Cablepalooza interactive event I participated in was the football toss into the Seattle Seahawks inflatable. Throw the fb into the small hole and you win a ticket for a chance to win one of three prizes. Choices included either: four Seattle Mariner tickets in a hosted Suite at the Safe;  a College football package with the Apple Cup at the final season of the UW Husky Stadium ; or, a Seattle Sounders FC seat and party pack at rockin’ Qwest Field.
