Indianapolis Super Bowl #Social46 Kick Off

The Indianapolis Super Bowl Count Down Clock

Last week I was selected to be one of the Indianapolis Super Bowl 46 Social Media Crew to help promote Indianapolis and the Super Bowl through Social Media.  This is something that a guy, who does not follow football, couldn’t believe.  I am honored to be able to do this.  The decision on who was selected was made by both Klout.com and the Super Bowl Social Media Committee. Not sure how I got selected, but that’s ok with me.  I talked to one person who told me “I walked into the room and looked around and saw the Who’s Who of Indianapolis social media and thought ‘What the heck am I doing here?'”  I told him that I thought the exact same thing. When asked what I wanted to learn about this my only answer was to learn more about football.  Tonight, I learned the the two teams who play in the Super Bowl will be decided this weekend.
