Defend Your TurfBy: Melissa | April 6th, 2010
The above photo was taken by my friend Aaron at the Puma store in San Francisco last week. He and I are going to cover FC Cash4Gold (with a name like that, you could get MC Hammer in for some publicity – just sayin) for a local site (oh right, this one) and apparently he’s so excited about his newly discovered photo taking prowess, he’s now texting me to ask if we can start covering practices too. Dude, I can’t even pick Danville out on a map.
Oh right, the season starts this weekend. And I’m so *^$&W@)% excited my home team is playing their first game in the middle of the country and this game is neither televised nor available to watch online. Awesome!
Meanwhile, a small section of the twitterverse is having a ball typing insults to the world under the auspice of defending their turf. Yup, go search twitter for #dyt right now and if you have a local team (sorry LA but I supposed you could rep Pali Blues in the meantime?), go ahead and let the insults fly!
p.s. All insults against Sky Blue FC are ace in my book.
p.p.s. Defend Your Turf is also an ad campaign which I guess somewhat cheapens the inspired viral-ness of this whole DYT twitter thing. Oh well.
