NY Giants To Host Google+ HangoutBy: Josh Wolford - February 1, 2012
Are you a New York Giants fan? Do you have a question that you’d like to ask Victor Cruz or Corey Webster? Are you a devious Patriot fans who wants a chance to taunt your opponents? Then head on over to Google+ and tell the NY Giants why they should choose you for their special Hangout.
On Thursday, February 2nd at 6:30 EST, four members of the NFC Champion NY Giants will host their first-ever Google+ Hangout. The participating players will be Victor Cruz, Mark Herzlich, Henry Hynoski, and Corey Webster.
Fans who wish to participate in the Hangout are being asked to leave a comment on the Google+ post announcing the Hangout. “Tell us why you deserve to hangout with Big Blue on Thursday night,” they say. According to a post on the NYG official site, they will be selecting 20 fans based on these responses to chat live with the players.
Here’s the kind of thing you’ll be up against, so act fast!
I absolutely LOVE the Giants, I’m obsessed. My dad, grandfather, and great-grandfather are all Giants fans, so, naturally, I am too and I have been since I was about 7. Living in the Philadelphia area, I get picked on all the time about being a big blue fan, but I show my NY pride loud and proud. It would make my entire year if i had the chance to talk to talk with Victor Cruz, Corey Webster, Mark Herzlich, and Henry Hynoski! I’m #ALLIN ; my cat and dog both have jerseys, there is a huge flag hanging on our house, stickers all over our cars, and I wear my NY gear as often as I can. PLEASE pick me!!! And, most importantly, GO G-MEN!
The Google+ Hangout is actually part of a larger initiative – Giants “social media night.” There will be a webcast available via Giants.com featuring players Jake Ballard, Steve Weatherford, Tyler Sash, and Prince Amukamara. They will answer questions that fans submit via Twitter, Facebook and Google+ using the hashtags #askBallard, #askSteve #askSash, and #askPrince.
The Giants will let the lucky fans know on Thursday morning if they are going to get to Hangout live with Cruz and the gang.
