Let Us Be Your 12th Man

FootballNow, I’m not going to claim to know much about sports, especially football. However, this season, I have had my first experiences of going to watch the Indianapolis Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium.

I’ve watched my fair share of games at home with friends, but let’s be honest: I was mostly interested in the food and socializing and less about the game.  But being in a stadium and seeing the action live demands your full attention. And since I was paying attention, I was introduced to a new (to me) football term: the “12th man” (a term for the team’s fans).

For those of you who don’t know (and I’m sure everyone does), football allows a maximum of eleven players per team on the playing field at a time. It’s the job of the “12th man” to give the team the extra boost they need to win the game.

So what does this have to do with you?

Well, it got me thinking about CEDIA and our role for your company. Part of CEDIA’s mission is to be a core component of our members’ success. We want to be your 12th man, helping your team along to victory after victory in some small way.
