Part Two: The Bus. The Girls. The Game.
Day Six: This is the day I meet the road crew of the SNF on NBC bus and the other Fans of the Week. The bus is near the DC waterfront in tony Georgetown. An elegant dinner is part of the deal. So is the Fan of the Week video for the NBC SNF web page.
Lindsay [No last names used here] is NBC's on scene manager for social engagement for the Sunday Night Football web page. Lindsay's twitter profile lists experience at ESPN, Esquire and Comcast SportsNet, clearly a budding sports broadcast personality.
The crew includes Donte and Trey. Donte never gives a title, but over dinner he spoke with authority. He is more than the guy who drives the bus. It was mostly Donte who explained the logistics of how game day would work. He presents us with our swag and media credential. "You are part of the media broadcast team," he said. A voice in my head tells me to get this guy's mobile number. I'm going to need it.no comments
