A week ago the CGB team received an exciting e-mail from Cal athletics – an invitation to participate in ‘Blog From The Fog,’ a first ever outreach with online voices within the Cal fanbase! We’ll let Cal athletics describe the event:
As a thank you for your support and social prowess, we want to extend an invitation for three of you to join us in our Cal’s "Blog from the Fog" Social Suite on November 12, 2011 during our last home football game at AT&T Park. You, along with other social savvy fans, will be given a pre-game field visit, and will then be invited to watch the Cal vs. Oregon State game from a luxury suite at AT&T to use as a space to blog, tweet, and get social during the game.
So what does this mean? Well, it should mean some pretty awesome pictures for you all to enjoy when we get our photo essays done. And it means that myself, Kodiak and Avinash will have the opportunity to watch the game in the stadium while simultaneously interacting with the rest of the CGB community in the gamethreads and on twitter.
Mostly, we hope this is the beginning of a mutually beneficially relationship between CGB and Cal athletics. In many ways CGB and the athletic department have identical goals: the growth and promotion of Cal fandom and greater recognition of the incredible things being done daily by every coach and athlete in our athletic program.
We offer our thanks firstly to the athletic department for putting this event together and giving us the opportunity to participate. We offer our thanks secondly to you, our readers, who have made CGB so successful, putting us in a position to participate in this event. We'll do our best to bring you back some entertaining content from the game, and we look forward to bringing you live updates on Saturday. Go Bears!
