Football season is here and I hit hard on the football field! That’s right! I train hard to kick butt on the field. Well….. let me back up a moment to clarify a few things. I don’t physically hit hard and there ‘ain’t’ no way on this earth that you will find me on a football field. But thanks to EA Sports, the creator of the NCAA Football 2013 video game, I can smash with the best. As many of you may know, TaxSlayer.com is the entitlement sponsor of the TaxSlayer.com Gator Bowl through 2013. As you can imagine, we are excited about the opportunity to be a part of collegiate sports and it is an honor to have 2 storied divisions play in the Gator Bowl, The SEC and Big Ten. I heard rumors that the Gator Bowl may be one of the Bowl locations to choose from in this year’s NCAA Football 2013 video game. Last weekend, a buddy of mine told me to come over to his house to get my butt kicked in NCAA Football 2013. Normally, both of us are EA Sports Madden Football video game enthusiasts and neither of us is good at NCAA Football, so I took him up on the invitation and went to his house to play. That’s when I remembered- I have to see if the TaxSlayer.com Gator Bowl is a field of choice in NCAA Football 2013. After we selected our teams and began searching for the Gator Bowl, I was anticipating the best but knew there may be a chance that the field may not be added. However, in this case, the rumors were true and the Gator Bowl football field is awesome! I was the South Carolina Gamecocks and he was the M-i-i-i-chigan Wolverines. (No offense to you Michigan fans but I couldn’t resist). The field was just as I remembered it earlier this year when our company was in Jacksonville, Florida at the Gator Bowl. EA sports did a great job with every detail of the field. The gameplay was awesome as both of us executed the option and sent maddening blitzes at each other.
TaxSlayer.com supports collegiate sports and, most importantly, the men and women attending Universities and Colleges throughout the United States. It is an honor to tie into collegiate athletics and it was awesome to ‘play’ in the Gator Bowl thanks to EA Sports NCAA Football 2013. I am an ‘old fogey’ and there ‘ain’t’ a chance that I can do what those guys were doing on the real football field. Just in case you’re wondering, my friend and I tied our games at 3 games apiece last weekend. But Cocky, South Carolina’s Mascot, was going crazzzy on the sidelines. LOL! Next weekend I will beat him because, let’s face it, I always do! If you want to get beat by an ‘old fogey’ hit me up on Playstation 3. My gamer tag is killakyi. Have fun gaming and see you at the TaxSlayer.com Gator Bowl in 2013! Darcel Walker Director of Growth TaxSlayer.com
