On May 14th of this year, over at my old site, Red and White From State, I made an entry that suggested something I thought that would look really neat at a home game:
Most of us have all see the flipcards that make graphic elements in the stands of a stadium: each seat in a given section has a card placed on it, and on a signal, everyone holds it up.
This is one that the NC State students in the end zone seats could do, if someone in Wolfpack Sports Marketing ever put it together. Click on the picture to see it full-size. To make your own flip cards, go to 1,024 Cheerleaders.
When fans in the center sections of the east-side grandstands walked in the game tonight, we found placards attached to our seats that we were to hold up on cue between the first and second quarters. We did, and the results were utterly spectacular. For those of us holding the cards, there were cutouts and we could see what it looked like on the Jumbotron, and of course everyone else could see it with their own eyes. This was a job well done by the marketing and Athletic Department folks.
Special thanks to Mark H for taking the time to send us these shots. We really appreciate it and will also add it to the Statefans Gallery later on today. If you took a shot at the game you would like to share, be sure to e-mail it to us at statefans at gmail dot com. Thanks!
