In case you’ve missed it, this week, we’re taking our rivalry with the Twins to social media, where we’ve been engaging in some fun Twitter Tug-of-Wars and, most recently a “Follow Off”.
What’s a Follow Off, you ask?
Starting in pregame yesterday, we, along with the Twins, submitted the number of followers we have on the @Brewers and @Twins Twitter accounts. From that time through the end of tonight’s game, we’re holding a running tally.
The team that gains the most followers in this span of time will reward their fans by giving away a prize.
If the Twins win, they’ll give away a Joe Mauer autographed bat to one lucky follower and if we win, we’ll give away an Aramis Ramirez game-worn jersey from Opening Day to one of our followers.
Currently, we’re trailing just slightly behind the Twins, but I’m confident that Brewers fans will rise to this challenge.
So, for the rest of the day through tonight’s game, make sure you follow the Brewers on Twitter if you aren’t already and encourage your fans to do the same. Also, don’t forget to tune in to tonight’s broadcast and follow @FSWisconsin for updates on the competition.
How does that song go? Baseball, hot dogs, shaving cream pie…. hmm… I’m not sure that’s it, but this week, the Crew sure has had some fun in the dugout after their victories, celebrating with post-game antics.
With the Crew going for 7 in a row today, they sure have made the game look as easy as, well… pie this week!
Take a look at the gifs and an amazing photo from this homestand.
