I cannot believe this is already the seventh, and final installment of the Typical Tackers series. To be honest, this last Tacker was a little hard to convince at first, but once he learned the tricks and ways of the trade, there was no stopping him.
Hi, sports fans! I’m reluctantly writing and hoping my grammar isn’t too horrible but I’m also counting on Nina to make sure this isn’t published without a proper edit. Writing isn’t really my strength but writing while talking about sports? I think I can make this work.
Let me give you a little background information…
I was practically born with a football in one hand, and a baseball bat in the other. As a young boy, I was a pint sized football star and a perfect pitcher. My dad was a bodybuilder and our garage was setup as a gym. I played college football for a large, Southern university and if you know anything about the South, you know that Saturdays in the fall consist of two things; tailgating and cheering on your favorite football team. While in college, most of my friends were golfers, leading me to develop a pretty good swing. Are you starting to get the picture? I don’t frequently tout my own horn, but I’m really a “Jock of all trades”.
Being such a huge sports fan is no simple task. I’m constantly keeping up with the latest sporting event, making sure I know the ins, the outs, the names of the athletes and what their records are. There’s a season for everything and I don’t believe in taking any time off.
Labor day weekend of last year, my wife (honey, you are the most gorgeous, beautiful, perfect woman in the world!!!) informed me that we had a wedding to attend. A wedding taking place on the first weekend of college football as well as a huge comeback event for Tiger Woods in the PGA. I’m 100% certain the groom did not choose this wedding date. I called one of my buddies, venting about the absurdity of it all, and he told me that as long as I’m connected with my phone, he could Tack the scores of my teams to me AND let me know how Tiger was doing. All I had to do was sneak my smart phone into the church during the wedding ceremony, and I would be good as gold. Bingo! Sure enough, the day of the wedding, Mark was Tacking the Clemson game right to my Tack.com account while simultaneously Tacking Tiger’s game stats. I could rest easy…and even had it in my to show off my slick moves on the dance floor at the wedding reception.
I’m now using Tack in more ways than I ever thought possible. I have a group of buddies that I play golf with on Sundays and we have been using Tack.com to plan out our courses for each weekend. We are no longer scrambling on Saturdays to schedule a tee-time. I’m also finding Tack.com a great way to keep up with all of my teams in one place. It’s completely mobile friendly and it’s not necessary to keep my phone loaded up with individual apps when I can count on Tack.com to keep it all bundled together for me.
Tack.com- 1. Everything else on the web- 0.
I hope you all have enjoyed getting to know my friends! I’ll be back next week with something new. In the meantime, don’t forget, there’s no right or wrong way to Tack Your World.
