This goes out to you, Packers fan living in Arizona or Seahawks fan living in Southern California or any other NFL fan living far removed from the local market of your favorite NFL team. If that applies to you, here’s your chance to win a trip to the Super Bowl and become a folk hero for NFL fans everywhere.
For the second straight season, DIRECTV is conducting the ULTIMATE DISPLACED FAN SEARCH. Last year’s winner, after all the dust settled, was Ron Lawrence, a passionate Dallas Cowboys fan from Chesapeake, Virginia, thanks in large part to his two-car garage, which he’d converted into a full-blown replica of the interior of Texas Stadium, complete with blue star-studded walls, field turf and a ring of honor. Lawrence earned a dream Super Bowl prize package including two Super Bowl tickets and an all-expense paid trip to Tampa, Fla. While there, Lawrence participated in a media tour at the Super Bowl media center side-by-side with his favorite Cowboy player Jason Witten, met Giants Quarterback and DIRECTV spokesman Eli Manning and played for Hall of Fame QB Warren Moon’s team in the nationally televised DIRECTV Celebrity Beach Bowl flag football game.
If you think you deserve to be crowned this year’s DIRECTV ULTIMATE DISPLACED FAN, visit www.theultimatedisplacedfan.com and submit written essays, videos and photos (any or all of these elements) that illustrate why you should earn the title and the Super Bowl week prize package. You can win the same once-in-a-lifetime Super Bowl week experience as Ron Lawrence did last year. In addition, four semi-finalists will receive one-year complimentary subscriptions to the DIRECTV® CHOICETM package, the NFL SUNDAY TICKET™ subscription for the 2010 season, as well as any required DIRECTV® receiving equipment.
