Most Dedicated Fan Contest


TubaGuy

Recommended Posts

Well, this is for a Colts FAN, not a player, but I thought it was more appropriate here instead of the miscellaneous board...

I am a national finalist for Vick's Most Dedicated Fan contest. You'll find it on Facebook at http://www.facebook.com/NyQuil?v=app_187212048013646. Starting on Friday 11/11 my Game Face (along with 31 other fans representing their teams) will be posted and fan voting will start. You can also vote for me by visiting my specific hashtag on Twitter; it is #VicksMDFIndianapolisFan.

I would really appreciate the help and support of the forum community. Hopefully I can bring home a fan victory for Colts nation this year while we are having a rough win/loss time. Like they say in Chicago..."Vote early, vote often!!

Thanks...and GO COLTS!!!

Is it you I always see on TV? I know I always see the guy with the painted helmet on his head.

No, that's actually "HelmetHead". He's a great guy too! I'm lucky enough to be representing a GREAT fan base in this contest. I'm hoping to bring a victory to Indy for ALL of our fans.

I also wanted to share this. On Sunday evening after the game, I had an opportunity to talk with a Falcons fan. They had come up from Atlanta and had been in Indy since Thursday. They parked their RV in the corner of Shapiro's parking lot and enjoyed a lot of the city for a few days. He told me that in all of his travels to different NFL cities, Indy "hands down" had the best and friendliest fans he had ever met! He said other than some good-natured ribbing, everyone he met over his few days was friendly, helpful and fun!

THAT'S what I love about being an Indianapolis Colts fan!! That's the way it SHOULD be!!

The Facebook page becomes "active" on Friday for voting. Again, you can find the page at http://www.facebook.com/NyQuil?v=app_187212048013646. Voting on Twitter counts when you use the hashtag #VicksMDFIndianapolisFan.

A few people have asked me what comes along for the contest winner. It includes Super Bowl tickets, an all-access pass to everything during the week, 7 nights downtown during the entire week, and a VISA gift card. So hey...help me out!!! LOL!!

Just a reminder that the voting on Facebook for the contest starts tomorrow. All of the 32 finalists will be pictured with their "Game Day Face". I don't know about the others, but mine is my honest-to-goodness game day face for every home game! LOL! Once again, thanks to everyone who is willing to support me with their votes!! Hopefully I can bring one home for the "home team and fans"!!

Just to clarify, actual voting starts on the 15th and we can vote either on Facebook or on Twitter or is it only by tweeting the hashtag?

LOL!! That's funny sfergson727!

I'm heading down to LOS in just a little bit. If you are in the Indy area, WISH-TV is going to interview me this morning about the contest!! I think it will be on the late new tonight, as CBS has a double-header today. If they post it on their website, I'll post a link to it here later tonight after the game.

https://apps.facebook.com/vicksmdf/semi/canvas.php?k=118

Twitter - just include #VicksMDFIndianapolisFan in a tweet to count as a vote!

I'm hoping to attach a link later tonight. WISH-TV followed me around this morning before the game and filmed some typical "pre-game" action! One thing I CAN post now...

Back in the '05-'06 season I managed to get nearly 2/3 of the Super Bowl champs to sign my horn. However, there has been one glaring omission...until today!!!

WISH even filmed him coming up and signing the "Tuba"!! Awesome!!!

I knew you'd get it. Love his marches! My brother is a tuba player also. We went to the game against the 49'ers a couple years back and I pointed you out to him. [yup, reading the forum back then] You know you probably have one of the more famous Tubas in the world now with that final autograph!!! Glad yo see you get it. Anyways looks like your contests starts tomorrow so here's a :bump:

Good Luck!

Thanks Fthood. Hey, I just saw your message. This past game, the security people were allowing fans to come down by the field knowing Peyton would sign some autographs. The best aisle to try is 129. Try and get into the stadium right at 11:00 when it opens. You might even make a sign or something that says about your wife, "My wife is deployed in Afghanistan". That might get enough attention for the signature! Hope that helps!

By the way, to EVERYONE that is viewing this thread, if you have a Twitter account, I NEED YOUR HELP!!! Send a tweet with my hashtag of #VicksMDFIndianapolisFan. That is how Twitter votes are counted. And when you send it out, please ask your followers to retweet using the hashtag too!! Thanks!

The contest is in the VERY early stages, but there are a few contestants that are kickin' butt right now. I need a "Twitter Specialist"!! Most of the voting is being done on Twitter and these early leaders obviously know some Twitter secrets. Well, I'm not afraid to ask for help!!! HELP!! If you have some ideas to help me "get out the vote" on Twitter, or if you know of someone who can give me some pointers, I would appreciate it!! Thanks!

    • It wasn't a great season (great would be making the Finals) but I would classify it as a very good one, one reason why is, we overachieved. Making the Final 4 is a very good accomplishment and winning 47 games to stay out of the playin scenario is pretty respectable. We also won a Game 7 at NY in the Semi's which is almost impossible to do no matter who they have out there. They did have Brunson and Divincenzo for that Game 7 for most of the game. Brunson had to leave because of a broken hand late in the 3rd but by then we were up big anyway.    Even though we got swept by Boston, it didn't even really feel like a sweep. We lost both home games without Haliburton by only 3 points and gave away Game 1 losing in OT and that was at Boston. They really only kicked our butt in Game 2.    All in all, we just lost to a slightly better team who has been in the Conference Finals for many years - so their experience in closing games was better.    We need to add 1 more piece and it needs to be someone that just focuses on being physical in the paint defensively and wants to Rebound more than anything. Turner is more of a stretch Center that has a score first mentality, he is a great shot blocker but isn't physical enough when guys come into the paint.   There are 5 levels to basketball: Level 1 - Just making the Playoffs (above average) Level 2 - Winning a Playoff series (good) Level 3 - Winning 2 Playoff series = making the Conference Finals (very good) Level 4 - Winning 3 Playoff series = Winning the Conference (great) Level 5 - Being a World Champion   -We reached Level 3   I won't be a sore loser so I will congratulate @NFLUpand the other Boston fans for winning the East. They are just better as of now.
    • I'm sorry I misstated that it was Saturday that moved him back, IIRC Saturday had stated that Smith would be staying at RT and they were moving Raimann to LT and that's what I am remembering. Still never stated it was a long term plan, I even said it was Reich grasping at straws to try and fix the O-line.   It's the simple argument of someone stating that something never happened, when it had happened. Now you're somehow trying to argue that while trying to put words in my mouth. I never said it was a long term thing. YOU and I are on the same page and the same opinion that he should remain a RT and shouldn't be changed to RG
    • Smith had a career year when he was in there last year on a bad knee.
    • You also said it was Saturday who undid it.  It wasn’t it was Reich the very next game.  That’s what I am pushing back against that this was some long term plan the Colts had.  I think most see the difference in a one game throw something at the wall to see if it sticks because you are desperate vs a long term plan that you are presenting it as.     Dungy also moved Saturday to guard for a playoff game vs the Broncos in 03 does that mean the Colts had thoughts about moving Saturday to guard or was it a one game thing?   It’s also moot now as that coach and oline coach are no longer here and Shane has made it clear since he got here he has no plans of moving Smith to right guard.
    • The argument was that he was never discussed as moving to right guard, that it was only a thing from fans. Well he was in fact moved to right guard by the Reich so it was clearly a thought process that had been discussed by more than just fans as it happened. I then stated that I don't want, nor advocated for him to be moved to RG.   I can try and break this down more if you'd like, but you're trying to argue against me like I am stating an opinion when I am stating a fact instead.
