Over on BrooksLaichyear.com, the Caps blog that my brother and I just started, I took a look at Caps ticket prices on StubHub and some upcoming games that might end up being fairly inexpensive. I got five tickets in the 400 level to last Thursday’s game against the Winnipeg Jets for $8.99 each late that afternoon on StubHub. Looking at the schedule and the StubHub prices and inventory, there could be some more opportunities for Caps ticket bargains coming up.
In other Caps news, for those who followed this blog for CSN/CSN+ related information, check out this post over on the DC Sports Bog, which explains that DirecTV has added CSN+ in HD. That took awhile—it’s only been 17 months since CSNWashington announced they’d start broadcasting all Caps and Wizards games in HD.
The push is on for our spring WAKA Kickball and Dodgeball leagues.
Like it says on our Facebook page right now, “Round up your office team…email your friends and put a group together…or sign-up as a free agent and meet new people. Spring is right around the corner and the options are endless with WAKA!”
We also have a new website up for anyone looking at sports-related franchise opportunities. Check out our new social sports franchise video on YouTube as well.
We have a new video up on YouTube now for WAKA’s social sports franchise program. Check it out below and, if you aren’t looking to own a social sports franchise yourself, we’ll give you $2,000 if you send an owner/operator our way through our franchise referral program.
Earlier this year, WAKA branched out into dodgeball after nearly 15 years in the kickball business. We launched leagues in Boston and Dallas that are now up and running. And we now have four additional leagues open for registration (Atlanta, Austin, Portland and a new season in Dallas), with more to come. We also use soft-play dodgeballs, which sting a lot less than the ones people might remember using in elementary school. You can see a picture of the ball in the latest WAKA blog post on our co-ed adult dodgeball leagues.
We tried something new last week in promoting winter WAKA Kickball and Dodgeball leagues, displaying ads on a helicopter over rush hour traffic with Bootcamp Lights. Check out the video below.
There’s been some good press for WAKA Kickball recently and this week there were two articles from California I really liked. Both pieces nicely showcase the great social aspects of WAKA and have some nice quotes. They also both mention the charity work our players do.
The writer of a San Jose Mercury News article on WAKA describes joining one of our leagues as, “Best decision ever!” And one player says, “I originally got involved because I heard about it from a friend who was starting a team. I fell in love with it. I’ve never done anything else that’s so fun and attracts so many amazing people.”
And then there’s one from Thousand Oaks, California, which has several great quotes, one of my favorites being: “The majority of my social circle is made up of kickball players.”
Some of our fall WAKA Kickball leagues are now open for registration with more opening over the course of the next few weeks.
And if you missed it, definitely check out this NBC 4 piece on WAKA Kickball — they did a nice job showing the various aspects of WAKA, including the games, the social side and our players’ charity work.
