There is no one right way to present a game, but a myriad of options that we can assist you in choosing from and finding what fits your marketing strategy. We are excited to introduce new consulting services from a team of industry leaders.
We are a collective of sports and entertainment professionals with decades of experience in the NBA, NHL and NFL. During the pandemic and subsequent stoppage in sports, we organically came together to discuss the state of affairs in live sports and how, moving forward, teams may face various obstacles at the start of a new season. Limited or no live fans, staffing shortages, league and team restrictions and potentially unusable entertainment talent to name a few.
But, with change and uncertainty comes opportunity. This is where we come in.
New ideas, applications, relationships and insights. Every team has different needs, but we are a resource to you and your colleagues.
Be it new technology applications, broadcast integration, sponsorship strategy, social media, video content, or creative brainstorming, we have ideas and resources that will impact your fans.
We will help you impact your fans.

Rob Wicall has always been a competitive, energetic, athletic comedian. He was playing soccer and running competitively by age 5 and at the same time was performing for anyone who would sit and watch (mostly gushing family members).

He kept at it until 1996, when he was selected as a performer for an interactive team the San Antonio Spurs were putting together. Soon after joining the team he began doing appearances as the Spurs Coyote. About a year later, Rob was hired to be the mascot for the Washington Capitals and also donned the Wizards’ mascot costume at the same time. But in 2000, Rob came home to once again perform as the beloved Coyote. He continued performing as The Coyote, being a part of 4 championships, until April of 2016 when he finally hung up the sweaty fur for good. During his mascot career, Rob was named Mascot of the Year by gameops.com in 2006 and won the NBA Mascot of the Year award in 2014. He also won Video of the Year in 2007, 2010, 2014, and 2015.
Now Rob spends his time consulting, speaking and most recently trying to be a teacher to his two boys due to distance learning while they run amuck. He has consulted for the Los Angeles Clippers, San Antonio Zoo, Houston Texans, San Antonio Parks and Recreation and the University of Texas at Austin while simultaneously speaking to a number of companies and government agencies, spreading his Furlosophy on life.
