How To: Get Summer Ready

June 2, 2010

Do you have any pre-summer rituals and style changes beyond switching to shorts?

In preparation for the summer this year, I’ve done a crapload of shopping and style-pimping so I can rawk it. and a few friends have noticed and loved the results. So, lets share and rawk it better together!  Here are a few tricks I’ve used and discovered to help get my ass summer ready.

Please Don’t Take Me Out To The Ball Game

April 20, 2010

Everyone’s talking about the Blue Jays and what a shame it is that Toronto isn’t behind them… or in the stands.

I’m not a Jay’s fan. I’m not a baseball fan.
I am, however, a (relatively new) Raptors fan.

I see being a fan as making an emotional investment in a team/brand… So I would like to look at how, besides the sport itself, does one get invested in a team (the raps as my example). Also, because my life revolves around socmed, I will use it as an example and see what basic socmed lessons/theories to relate to this situation.

Hopefully, after analyzing these two aspects, we can have a better idea as to how the Jays can improve their fan base and ticket sales.

I wanna know: Where were you when Canada won the gooaaalllddd (aka the mens hockey team closed ‘er down with justice). Leave a comment!
