The National Basketball Association (NBA) had its first Nickname Game last night (Fri Jan 10 2014) between the Miami Heat and Brooklyn Nets. It is a great marketing tool, with controversy in fan reaction and no clear future for direction. I thought I’d suggest options for a policy that might be used for nickname jerseys, not just in the NBA but also in other professional sports leagues.
Congratulations to Dirk Nowitzki and the entire Dallas Mavericks organization in winning the 2011 NBA Championship!
By winning against the self-touted Big Three of Dwayne Wade, LeBron James and Chris Bosh of the Miami Heat, the Mavericks made a lot, if not most, of America and the world as happy as they are! For what you think of those players on the Heat and their moves to unite, make the “Decision” and all, the self-annointment was absolutely unnecessary. As far as I’m concerned, they got what they deserved for it. It was too bad D Wade had to be a part of it all and be drawn into it cause he’s such a classy guy otherwise.
I created these tagging challenges for fans of North American hockey, or people who know lots of those fans. The tagging challenges can be done on Facebook, MySpace, LiveJournal or other platforms where you can tag people on pictures.
The idea is to see how diverse is the group of hockey fans you know, and how does that compare to your fellow hockey loving friends. It’s no fun if everybody supported the team you supported, you know!
Pick a Facebook tagging meme of your choice based on the leagues below:
- National Hockey League (NHL), with some vintage teams!
- American Hockey League (AHL)
- Western Hockey League (WHL)
- Ontario Hockey League (OHL)
- Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL)
- National Women’s Hockey League (NWHL)
Tag one person you know whose favourite team is represented by the team logo. It has to be that person’s favourite team as you can’t tag a person twice on the same photo.
How many teams can you tag? And how does this compare to your friends who might have done this same challenge?
Here’s how to get these graphics for your tagging fun:
