If you’d told me a few months ago when I was all worked up for the NFL draft that I wouldn’t be in section 333 for the first game of the preseason, I wouldn’t have believed you. If you’d told me that not only wouldn’t I be at the game for Matt’s return to the Clink, but I wouldn’t even have access to the game via TV, I wouldn’t have been responsible for my actions!
Yet as I type this, I’m in the middle of the Nevada desert heading toward Death Valley with my husband. Our planned stop tonight is the eastern Sierra Nevadas. I hope to have Wifi but no guarantee on the strength of the signal being capable of capturing a feed. And it’s a pretty sure thing it won’t be televised down here.
So what does an ardent Seahawks fan do?
She falls back on the Seahawks Social Network. Before she leaves Vegas, she connects with fellow Seahawk fans on Twitter to make sure she can at least hear about the finer points of the game, any great plays and updates on who makes a good showing in their first NFL game!
More than just a catch phrase of #12sfollow12s, the Seahawk fans on twitter have your back. Even if I hadn’t asked specifically, I know a 3G signal on my phone would get me commentary, speculation, play by play review and humor galore.
Thanks to the Seahawks Social Network, my poor planning won’t prevent me from hearing about the game. But you can bet my butt will be in my seats for the Raiders!
