I like sports. I like football. I love baseball. I love basketball. But I rarely get a chance to sit down and watch a game. It is just not something I do too much these days.
But when I get an opportunity to go to a game or games, like I recently did when I headed to Phoenix for spring training, I definitely take advantage of it and soak up every ounce of enjoyment!
That is why the last couple of weeks my excitement is practically visible palpitating as a vibration under my skin…
I am heading to the NCAA Final Four and the Championship in Indianapolis!!!!! [That’s college basketball for anyone who needs a translation.]
That’s not me in the photo above (it’s Marcy Kellar doing a jump in front of the NCAA Headquarters), but that IS totally how I feel about heading to Indy!
The #ExperienceBuick bloggers are gathering once again to celebrate the brand, the business and the experience of Buick. Buick has been a proud sponsor of NCAA college sports for years.
For me it is an opportunity to visit a new city, one that I have actually wanted to visit for quite awhile. It is for purely nostalgic reasons, but what can I say? I have worked in the corporate world for over 25 years and my first office job was at the age of 19. I was hired by my [now] best friend to work 20 hours a week and I loved it.
I loved everything about corporate life and very quickly moved from part time to full time. The company was headquartered in Indianapolis and from that time I have wanted to visit the city where some of the first executives I was exposed to came from.
And now here we are! An impending trip to Indy and a weekend full of basketball with a new group of friends. I will be online (of course!) reporting throughout the weekend [mainly] on Instagram and Twitter so be sure to follow along and look for the #mwa_ncaa, #mwa_indy and #experiencebuick hashtags.
If you are checking out the games during office hours, Buick has brought back their “Boss Button” which allows you to very quickly change your computer screen to a definitely-not-basketball-related presentation!
Go to the NCAA Live website to watch the games and activate your Boss Button when needed!
And what is March Madness without a little external competition? The #BuickExperience bloggers are competing in our own bracket competition where things are heating up! I am absolutely not going to brag (and with a serious knock on wood) look who is in first place (for the moment)!
In addition to seeing all the college hot shots making some, well….hot shots, Buick is hosting a bracket challenge of their own with 16 skilled basketball fans showing off their own sweet trick-shot skills. Their bracket challenge is live on the Buick.com website. Each week, website viewers vote on their favorite trick-shot from the match-ups – and each week trick shots will be eliminated until they have a winner.
How about you? Are you watching the games? Will you be checking out the finals? Have you been to Indianapolis? Have any tips?
