Whether you're a die-hard Mets fan or never miss an NBA game, there are some things every sports fan should be able to do. If you want to improve your game and improve your rep, find out now ...
- Know your schedule
You can't call yourself a fan if you don't know when, where, and who your team is playing. You might not be able to remember your own schedule, but you absolutely need to know what your team's plans are. From qualifying matches to tournament finals, you can't plan your schedule until you know theirs.
- Cast a pose for the 'Kiss Cam'
Traditionally, the 'Fuck cam'prompted all fans to grab the person next to them (hopefully a significant other!) and squint if they were zoomed in on the big screen. These days you don't have to kiss if you end up on the Kiss Cam, but you'd better have a good pose ready if you want to bring the house down.
- Predict a winner
If you follow sports, and not just your own team, you should be able to predict the winner of a match or match with a relative degree of accuracy. Of course, a lot of people think they are very good at it. Have a look on thegamehaus.com to see how many fans turn their predictions into sports betting. By tracking the season and reiterating (or repeating) what the experts say, you can impress anyone with your knowledge!
- Be ready for an autograph
If you're a season ticket holder or trying to attend as many games as possible, you'll want to be ready for the moment you meet your hero. You never know when the time is going to ring, so always be ready to ask for an autograph. Wear your team shirt, wear your foam finger, or get ready to have your forehead adorned with your favorite player's storyline.
- Justify poor performance
No matter how good your team is, there's a good chance they'll have a bad game at one point or another. Obviously, it's not their fault, so you'll need to come up with a selection of reasons why your team missed the mark. Questionable land? Bad selections? Unlucky kit? Whatever you do, say it with conviction.
- Have a lucky item of clothing
You might not be part of the team, but no one can tell that you are not doing your part. From lucky socks to lucky shirts, fans around the world are joining forces to make sure their team wins on match day. Some people will say that you are superstitious, but really is that a risk that you are willing to take?
Pass it on to the next generation
No true sports fan gives up the chance to inspire the next generation with their dedication, whether they like it or not. If you have kids, nieces, nephews, godchildren, or grandchildren, now is your chance to get a whole new legion of fans for your one true love: your team.
Stand on any gymnasium floor and look up – way up. At first glance, it doesn’t take much to imagine the level of sophistication in some of the equipment located overhead, not to mention the process of safely installing it. But with today’s technology and automation being built into so many of these products that are used on a daily basis, the question that often comes up is how to manage it all.
Many choose to have manual systems and equipment in place for reasons such as simplicity or with budget in mind. While there is nothing wrong with this type of operation and equipment, in terms of operational optimization, many are trending in the opposite direction.
With everything from BASKETBALL BACKSTOPS that fold up into the ceiling or off to the side, to gym divider curtains, scoreboards and even volleyball systems, the modern gymnasium is becoming a connected one. With most of these products coming with independent electric controls, innovative solutions to manage them are now on the forefront.
Located along the Rideau Canal, one of our most recent projects brought us into Canada’s national capital to work on another gym partition that needed replacing.
Originally founded as an all-girls school in 1928, IMMACULATA HIGH SCHOOL opened with an initial enrollment of just 85 at the site of the constituer Christie mansion. The following year, enrollment nearly doubled, and a new building was quickly constructed, and the school’s first commencement followed.
It wasn’t until 1978 that male students were enrolled at the school as enrollment swelled to nearly 1, 000 students towards the end of the 1980s. After 65 years of education, the school officially moved to its current location along the canal and currently serves as home to the school’s sports team, the Immaculata Saints.
In search of a new set of rugby goals for one of their biggest athletic parks, the City of Toronto once again came knocking at our door. Having done a few projects together in the past, they are a group that we truly always enjoy working closely with. When the time comes to outfit an outdoor venue, we are always flattered to make the short list of potential partners. In early 2020, the city was in search of a new set of rugby goals for EGLINGTON FLATS, located in the York region. Constructed on the Humber River Floodplain in 1954, today the park is heavily focused on sports, with six soccer fields, four field hockey pitches, a football field, winterized la petite balle jaune petits and évidemment, the rugby field.
While we all certainly enjoy watching something come to fruition, there is something extra special about being involved in the revitalization of something as well. Over the years, we’ve been blessed to be involved in a number of these genres of projects ranging from local community centres and schools all the way to nationally recognized institutions such as Queen’s University.
We’ve been granted access to stripped out gymnasiums and open athletic fields to style and eventually install state-of-the-art athletic equipment and infrastructure. From simple bleachers, to basketball systems to complete grandstands designed to accommodate tens of thousands of fans, these projects have and always will hold a special place in our hearts.
