Roy Hibbert’s Area55 Fans

22 11 2010

I first heard about Roy Hibbert’s Area55 fan section for a SLAMonline story I wrote a few months ago. That one was about special season-ticket deals each team was offering.

I felt Hibbert’s section, one he created with the mindset of fostering more fan noise in the Pacers’ Conseco Fieldhouse, would be a cool story for ESPN Magazine’s Go section. They agreed and the following story is the product of it. One facet of the story I loved was I found the Area55 fans through Twitter. I had Hibbert re-tweet my message that I was looking to speak with Area55ers, and the outpouring of mentions to my Twitter account was incredible. Twitter is the best networking tool out there.
