Were You There Last Night?

Were you there last night?

We just witnessed one of the greatest World Series games ever.

Were you there?

The game had it all. Drama beyond belief, improbable comebacks, joy, pain and action that you just couldn’t take your eyes away from.

Were you there?

I’ve never seen more excitement from fans. People were reacting to every play, heck, every pitch sometimes. They were making predictions, cracking jokes, cheering pitchers and batters, and sharing their hopes and fears. There was a lot of yelling, of course.

If you went to the stadium, that’s awesome. But I’m talking about Twitter here.

As Jason Romano said, “Twitter was made for baseball games like this. Great sharing it with you all.”

Social media brings fans together and makes the greatest sporting events even more fun to be a part of. For those of us on Twitter last night while we watched the game, we may not have been at the stadium. But we were there, participating and interacting, not just passively watching.

Personally, I can’t wait to see what the future holds in terms of the opportunities that we’ll see for deeper and wider fan interaction and engagement during games. How about you?
