Do you like the Bears? Of course you do. But do you really, really love them?
Do the Colts get you going? Definitely. But do they make you completely crazy?
If you answer absolutely yes, to either set of questions, then FanNation wants you to be your team's First Fan. For Super Bowl XLI, FanNation.com has created a new and very cool feature--GameDay. It's like a head-to-head instant message session between two fans with game information and comments. You're gonna love it.
What does all this mean? It means you may be picked to represent your team to the Nation and go up against a fan of those other guys as the game is being played in Miami. While you're watching the game, you'll be able to tell the Nation what you're thinking--about the Game, the announcers, the coverage, even the commercials. If you're up for it; if you want to be one with your team, your TV and your computer on Super Bowl Sunday then there may be a GameDay place for you. Tell us why you should be the First Fan to live blog for your team in a brief email (including your FanNation user name) and send it to firstname.lastname@example.org We'll read them, make the choices and get the two bloggers set up for Super Bowl Sunday. If you're chosen you'll need four things:
1. Your computer.
2. Your team jones.
3. Your game face.
4. Your attitude.
That's it. And the bloggers will each get their very own FanNation T-shirt. You see, there are no losers at FanNation.
As for the rest of the Nation, since we're all about inclusion we will be inviting all of our members to watch along and comment on the game, the blog posts, the coverage and the commercials. (We've tried it all out and it's very sweet and lots of fun.) We'll be making our choices for the Colts and Bears bloggers on Monday January 29, 2007, so get it going. You only get one chance to be the first and this is it. Remember tell us why you want in with an email to email@example.com and don't forget your user name.
We've got some other things planned for Super Bowl--a FanNation poll on who's going to win that will reside on the NFL front page; favorite Super Bowl stories from our members, and for Super Bowl weekend we'll also be hearing from our Most Valuable Blogger Josh, who's taking the Chicago Sports from the Northwest blog to Miami. Anybody who asks which team Josh is rooting for may have forfeited his or her chance to be a GameDay blogger.
