Honoring the Unsung Heroes of College Basketball

Masters of Logistics video contestThis week kicks off one of the most exciting seasons of the year—yes, spring has started, but I’m actually referring to March Madness (you know, the season employers despise the most?!).

The weeks leading up to March Madness have been filled with stories of inspiring coaches, and players who have overcome all odds to become star college players destined for a career in the NBA.

But there always tends to be a force behind a star, and in college basketball, that force is often the team manager.

For the Love of the Game – and a Chance to Win Tickets to the NCAA Final Four

Print MadnessI am a sports fan.Yes, I am a loyal fan to a handful of particular teams but overall, I am just a fan. I love a close game. I love the players’ passion. I love the camaraderie of the fan base. I am a sports fan.

A couple of years ago, I got to attend the NCAA Final Four in San Antonio, which is one of the hardest tickets to get in sports. In the Final Four, Memphis beat UCLA and Kansas beat North Carolina. I just happened to be sitting in the Kansas section. The Jayhawk fans’ energy and love of the team was infectious. I found myself chanting their cheers and pulling for their team. I became a Jayhawks fan for that weekend.

Logistics Goes Live in the Windy City

 Logistics live in Chicago

I know the first thing you probably think about when you hear the word “logistics” is a Broadway-worthy performance by thirty UPS-brown clad dancers in the streets of Chicago. No? Well, today UPS delivered just that by bringing a little fun to the Windy City and showing how much we ♥ Logistics. After a surprise entrance, the UPS dancers performed a number for the crowds at the Wrigley Building this morning, bringing to life our newly launched campaign: We ♥ Logistics. And, we couldn’t just let UPS be the center of attention. We canvassed the streets for brave Chicagoans to take the mic karaoke-style and sing to the tune of our new, catchy “That’s Logistics” song.  And folks didn’t disappoint. Ok, maybe a little incentive of some free gift items helped, but you can’t deny how much fun we had Chicago-style today. See the logistics in action on: www.facebook.com/ups.

So, I’m not sure you’ll be seeing us on tonight’s episode of Glee, but if they come calling, we’ll be ready! We have even more fun up our sleeves, so check back with us soon…
