I know you’re probably not interested in all of the topics listed as part of the weekly conversation starters. To tell you the truth, I don’t engage in lengthy conversations on every topic either (and I work in sports.)
Here’s the reason I include a number of different sports topics, it gives you the maximum opportunity to connect with different sports fans and it increases your sports knowledge base. It’s a two birds with one stone kind of approach.
Do yourself a favor, read through them all because I promise the names, teams and story lines mentioned here will come up again. When they do, you’ll be in the know.
Also, I’d love it if you joined me for the Blue Friday Breakdown call on Friday morning at 10:15 am (PST.) This is my chance to talk football with you. You’ll get my storylines for the upcoming game and answers to your questions. Click on the graphic below to register for the free call.
Sports talk is more than stats and scores, it can be used as a way to start bigger conversations at work. Take a look this comment from Seahawks defensive coordinator Kris Richard on his first impressions of Pete Carroll. It relates to football, but it also goes to show that attitude goes a long way in making a good impression at work.
You can also show genuine energy being #LoudandProud on game day. Let’s see it! Post your picture on the Seattle Chocolates Facebook page and you could be mentioned here.
Last week Terry Simon used this dessert to show off her Seahawks fandom. How do celebrate game day and show your passion for the Seahawks?
Speaking of which, how about a few more talking points about Sunday’s game? Join me on a LIVE call Friday at 1:15 PST. I’ll share my storylines and answer your questions. Use the link to register and I’ll talk to you Friday.
