Thereâ€™s something happening in Kansas City and itâ€™s not just on the baseball field. It is in living rooms and bars and on tablets and phones and laptops. Kansas City fans have awakened and are now unequivocally part of the story.
I have applied to speak about the social media awakening that has happened in Kansas City at the South by Southwest Festival â€“ Sports track in Austin, TX March 11-13. Iâ€™d like to tell the stories of the adventures weâ€™ve had, the good that weâ€™ve done and how that has translated to the field and the ticket office. It is undeniable that Royals Twitter and Royals fans are doing something special in this town. This is our chance to tell the world.
Check out the video below and VOTE in the SXSW Panel Picker. Youâ€™ll need to create an account, then search ROYALS TWITTER and simply click the THUMBS UP icon. Online voting accounts for 30% of my chances to get to speak so Iâ€™d appreciate it if you could give it a couple of minutes of your time. Click HERE to vote.
Just think about all weâ€™ve accomplished between #CountryBreakfast, #BooCano, #A1, #SungWooToKC, #RoyalsToWrigley, #BringBackSungWoo, #BounceBackJimmy, and many, many more.
And there is still a story left to be written! #UnfinishedBusiness
Please take a few minutes to vote for this presentation â€“ I think it would be a really cool story and one that is worthy of telling at such a great event like SXSW Sports. Voting is open from August 10 thru September 4.
