Welcome to GameDay Culture at gamedayculture.com!
As a person who grew up playing multiple sports, I attribute much of my personal and career success to my years dedicated to learning and playing team sports.
Sports are important for a variety of reasons. They provide an outlet for physical activity and exercise, which is essential for maintaining good health and well-being.
Playing sports promotes teamwork, cooperation, and social interaction, which can help to build strong relationships and foster a sense of community. Additionally, sports can help to develop discipline, focus, and determination, which are valuable skills that can be applied in all areas of life.
Not to mention sports can help provide a sense of accomplishment and pride, which can boost self-esteem and confidence. Overall, sports play a crucial role in promoting both physical and mental health, and I believe it should be an integral part of everyone’s lifestyle.
Why GameDay Culture? What’s in the name?
As I’ve transitioned from being a player on the field to a parent and supportive fan in the stands, I’ve realized there is so much more than just playing the game.
Since I was little, my father and I would travel around the country to see ballgames together. We always have to count the number of tuba players in each of the marching bands to see who has more.
We don’t go get food at halftime because we want to see the band perform too.
We get there early to watch the students file into the stands.
We watch the cheerleaders to see who has the most impressive stunts and cheers.
We stay to the bitter end of games and comment on those people who leave early and how they might miss the greatest comeback of all times. On at least five different occasions, I can think of being there to see the impossible.
There is so much pageantry and tradition that goes into gameday at sports venues.
I once heard the guys on the BGP podcast say they wanted to see their fans and school “Win the parking lot (best tailgating), win in the stands (best fans – be loud, stay late and support the team), and win on the scoreboard (win the game).”
That statement stuck with me. It really describes how my father and I think about our efforts when attending a game. We want to have a welcoming tailgate party. We want to arrive early, stay late and always be loud in supporting our team (win or lose), and hopefully, by doing our part as fans, it will help our team win the scoreboard and earn the victory on the field.
I started GameDay Culture as a way to share my passion for sports and to help tell the story within the story of athletics.
