So my Team Rev3 mate Jamie Bull has got to be a genius. No, seriously! The dude has mad skills in so many things – he’s a social media expert, lives in Boston (so he’s wicked cool already), has an awesome pup, likes good beer, and is one of the funnier guys I’ve come across.
I guess living in the cold northeast does funny things to one’s brain, because Jamie came out with a really funny idea the other day: #TrainerBingo!
This is much like buzzword bingo – you know, the game you play when you’re in some corporate town hall or at a seminar and hear words/phrases like synergy, out of the box, deckware, win-win, payback, innovation, stakeholder, benchmark, runway, except this game is all about triathlon. And more specifically, the crazy crap that some of us post on social media while we’re spending hours on the trainer watching Breaking Bad. Or Barney. Or whatever floats your boat.
Anyway, Jamie came up with a great grid for #TrainerBingo – check out the card over on his blog. In fact, do more than just check it out – go over there and DOWNLOAD it! And the next time you’re toiling away on your trainer, why not play along. The thing is that filling out your card won’t be all that difficult either!
Here’s the catch – if you play #TrainerBingo, you need to play it up on social media too! Call it out and hashtag it. “I just saw someone post a picture of their sweaty calf! #TrainerBingo”. The goals here are to have some fun, get our training on, and make fun of all of us crazy type A triathletes. Let’s see if we can’t get #TrainerBingo trending on Twitter!
Have fun, and good luck. Anyone seen a recent sweaty picture of someone’s face hunched over their aerobars recently? I’ve got that space open on my #TrainerBingo card!
