Inside the Rondo #LooseBall contest

RedsArmyAdmin June 14, 2010 Uncategorized 3 Comments

If you've been following Rajon Rondo on Twitter, you know he's been giving away free stuff all week long (Including game 4 tickets) as part of a contest called #LooseBall.  Basically, they use Twitter and Foursquare to tell people where they'll be, and the first people to find them get the prizes.  It's a first-of-its kind contest that has a tendency to get crazy.

So we just had to see it for ourselves.  Luckily, the folks who help him with the contest, and the folks at Red Bull, let us get an inside look by telling us the location ahead of time so we could get a taste.

Literally 30 seconds after the team sent out the tweet, people came sprinting out of nowhere to grab the prize.  Congrats to Adam, who won the signed ball, and Rich who won the signed shirt.  You'll have to watch the video to hear their strategy and what they went through to win the prizes.  You also have to hear the guy explain how he chased a cab through Boston trying to win.  And when I say chased… I mean sprinted after it.
