One week from today (May 10th) is the first #RedsTweetUp of the season! ARE YOU SO EXCITED? I know that Angie and I are, because it is quite possibly the only setting in either of our lives where we will ever be considered “celebrity bloggers”. We try to never miss a TweetUp because it is always a fantastic time. It’s a great way to put faces to Twitter handles and finally meet people we’ve only interacted with via “@”.
This particular TweetUp will be EXTRA awesome because it is #JoeyVotto-themed. When the #FaceofMLB contest was happening, we Reds fans totally rocked it. I am so proud of us, so I see this TweetUp as a way of honoring our hard work, dedication, and ability to find the pound sign on a keyboard.
Joey Votto is proud of us too.
For those of you who may be TweetUp first-timers, or just need a refresher in the details of how it works, for $30, you get a field box ticket to see the Reds face the Brewers and a #RedsTweetUp tshirt. I think that pretty soon, I will have a #RedsTweetUp tshirt for every day of the week. Here is the tshirt:
If you want more details of how to purchase the tickets, you can go to reds.com/tweetup! If you go to that website, you will get to see a very beautiful photograph of Mikey and I at one of last year’s TweetUps. #JoeyVotto might be the #FaceofMLB but #MikeyandI are the #FaceofRedsTweetUps. Feel free to use any or all of those hashtags in your daily life.
The wheels are falling off of this post pretty quickly, so I’m going to get out of here, but COME TO THE TWEETUP! I WILL BE THERE. Also, I’m pretty socially awkward so if I recognize you, I’ll probably stand around glancing towards you for a while until you come talk to me. So, come talk to me! Or I might just try to get a little drunk beforehand so I’m not as afraid to go up and talk to you. And now I’m experiencing anxiety at the thought of how I’m going to interact with you guys in the least awkward way possible. Don’t worry about it though – I’ll get myself on lock and come ready to have a SPECTACULAR TIME! Oh, and one more reminder – when you buy your tickets, make sure you tweet @LisaBraun to let her know so she can add you to the list!
