Thanks for giving our March Update a look, we think we have a really interesting slate of content.

First on the March Edition of the Party in the Back Podcast we look at Sensory Nights, often produced as Autism Awareness Nights. Sean Culkin from Kulture City shares perspective and insights from the work they are doing to help venues be more inclusive. Then executives from the Tucson Roadrunner and Maine Mariners discuss their Sensory Nights and the accommodations made for fans with sensory needs.  

We have our 15th installment of the High Five Game Reviews, this one with the world-famous Harlem Globetrotters. While their touring show is very different from most home team productions there is a lot to learn from how they produce their show. We look at the use of pre-game, making fans part of the show and why you should honor your team's past. Photos, videos and insights from the Globetrotters in this new game review from December 2021.

Our daily Water Cooler continues to provide a spark of inspiration.  Mascot skits like Nuggets Super Mascot Rocky steals a distracted fan's girl, Fan Cams like the Dallas Stars' fantastic SPY CAM, an education program from the Syracuse Crunch or a look at Yooper Night from the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers. We look at great ideas from all across sports that are sure to get your creative juices flowing.  Last month's posts included fan cams, mascots skits, promotions, giveaways, sponsor triggers and scoreboard content ideas.  Later in March we will post our 1000th Water Cooler Post (likely with much fanfare and confetti).

This month we feature Inflatable Noisemakers from our imprinted collection. Great inexpensive giveaway that get your fans engaged in the action....and they are LOUD. Plus we look at Chuck-a-Puck and our Big Mama Pizza Toss Promotions.

All the content is also available from the Home Page at Thank you for your support!
