This month’s edition of the Gameops.com Podcast with Jon Cudo and Pat Walker.
We talk about drawing inspiration from other places outside of sports and an easy trap to avoid (related to South Park and The X Files).
We look at promotions with the the NFL and Milwaukee Brewers, examine a controversy between the Stockton Ports and the Bakersfield Condors. Cudo also praises the Grand Rapids Griffins for fully explaining promotions to fans.
In our shout-outs, Pat and Jon give consideration to the victims of Hurricane Sandy and talk about the opportunities for teams to aide their community with promotions designed to help those victims. The show closes with some thoughts on the 2012 Best of Awards.
