main-imageThe NFL season is about a third of the way in. Are you surprised about who is topping the leader board? We all have our favourites and want them to rise to the challenge this year. Are you doing all you can to show your support? Do you have a game day routine?

My colleague Billy calls his routine “almost neurotic” (His words not mine). On the Friday before game-day he wears his team, Seattle’s, colours: he calls it blue Friday. He has his Seattle mug that can only be used on blue Friday, a different mug that can only be used on pre-game Saturday. He has his Seahawks pants, shirt, jacket that can only be worn, and MUST be worn on game-day. And Billy insists that the reason the Seahawks lost in week 2 is because he forgot to wear his Seahawks wrist-band!

And Billy is not too different from many of the thousands of NFL fans out there. Showing team pride matters!

Well now people can even dress their Microsoft Surface in one of six NFL team colours: Seattle, Denver, Pittsburgh, New England, Buffalo, and Green Bay. After all the Surface is already a big part of the NFL. Look on the sidelines during a game and you’re likely to see players and coaches using a surface to review plays, access game day strategy and more. You can do that and a whole lot more on a MS Surface. Here are some of the amazing features of the newest Surface Pro 4:

  • Convenient tablet/laptop versatilitysurface
  • High contrast PixelSense display that reduces glare and eyestrain
  • Multi-touch
  • Fast 6th Generation Intel processor
  • Enhanced security with Windows Hello so your surface knows it’s you
  • Long battery life (up to 9 hours) so you can do your work wherever you are (even on the football field!)

So if you have a Surface already, then this prize will be great for you to adorn it with an NFL cover. If you do not own one, win this contest, wear the new official NFL Jersey you win and head to your local Best Buy to spend the gift cards you win—you may even get a Surface Pro 4 to go with your new NFL Surface Cover.

  3. i would choose the Convenient tablet/laptop versatility feature because i am always on the go and this feature makes it usable anywhere!

  4. i like the Convenient tablet/laptop versatility feature as i am always on the go and want something that is light and i can use anywhere

  5. The surface is way better than an Ipad – i love it’s multi-use functionality, its a portable computer, not just an enlarged ipod.

  6. Oh wow! I am always on the go, so long battery life is a must! I like that you can get 9 hours…you could live tweet games from anywhere with that ; )
