NTC Train With Us @ MetLife Stadium (or how I saved the Buffalo Bills)

NTC #Counts.

Each Sunday, MetLife Stadium plays host to the defending World Champion New York Giants (or…the Jets). On October 23rd, with the help of MKTG INC, Nike and the NFL, the Stadium provided 275 women with a chance to take the field of champions (and also the Jets) to participate in an exclusive, football-inspired Nike Training Club workout.  With a cameo by Giants Defensive End Osi Umenyiora and NTC Master Trainers Marie Purvis and Alex Molden leading the 40 minute workout, the worlds of Women’s Training and Football combined for a full-on stadium takeover.

From receiving free Nike and NFL gear in the Visitor’s Locker Room, to a player-like, fog machine-induced entrance to the field projected onto MetLife Stadium’s massive jumbotrons, attendees were given a glimpse into a day in the life of some of the game’s greatest stars. The experience also featured various football drills, including the opportunity to kick a field goal where this humble Buffalo Bills fan split the uprights and exorcised the demons of Scott Norwood vs. the Giants in 1991.

Rest easy Bills fans (all 6 of you), the curse has now been lifted.

Exorcising a demon #counts.

The Ryder Cup: Kilt Jokes Welcome

Three things that belong together: Scotland, Johnnie Walker and golf. The trio came to life in a series of events architected by MKTG INC and Johnnie Walker to celebrate the return of the biennial Ryder Cup to golf’s spiritual home at Gleneagles Hotel in Perthshire.

There were two tares (that’s Scottish for parties) with EventScotland and another pair of events with Ryder Cup Europe. Both featured signature cocktails and under-kilt banter.

Meanwhile the 2012 Ryder Cup just wrapped last weekend in Illinois (America 13 1/2 points, Europe 14 1/2 points). The three-day tournament closed with a classic-malt tasting hosted by a Johnnie Walker master of whisky. Auld Lang Syne, friends.
