Gear-Up for Football!
The pro football season picks up again on Thursday, September 10, when two teams with eight big-game championships between them meet for an important early-season conference battle. But that’s just the start of the most exciting part of the sports year, and folks can look forward to another full season of tailgate parties, on-field rivalries and fast-paced action!
Football is the No. 1 sport in the country, according to the Harris Poll experts. Their latest survey, in fact, showed that football was twice as popular as the next sport, with 32 percent of adults indicating that, if they had to choose, they’d call football their favorite. This only makes sense, since the game offers something for just about everyone.
The season is packed with drama! Early on in the season, nearly every team has a shot at the playoffs, and every year showcases at least one unlikely band of brothers finding unexpected success on the gridiron. Also, it’s worth remembering behind all the big hits and athleticism on display in every matchup is a significant investment in strategy and tactics. Fans can find that out for themselves, too, by playing along at home in one of the growing number of fantasy football leagues.
Consider the numbers from the Fantasy Sports Trade Association: Per that group, there are nearly 57 million people participating in fantasy sports in the United States and Canada this year, and their favorite sport by far is football, “played” by 73 percent of them.
The only problem here? September 10 is still over 2 weeks away, and fans are ready for the season to start right now! For all you troubled fans, we here at Lady Luck Casino® Black Hawk came up with the perfect way to kick off the 2015 season early: The Great Gear-Up!
The promotion runs on three consecutive Tuesdays prior to the first regular-season game of the year: on August 25, September 1 and September 8. During those days, gamers can score free gear from their favorite pro-football teams. All you have to do is earn 350 tier points from noon to 8 p.m. on one of the Gear-Up days. Of course, that should be plenty of fun as well!
