Hey NFL Fans!
The “nice” list continued to get smaller and smaller this holiday season as the Director of Fandemonium finalists were narrowed down from 32 to the elite eight.
The pressure was on and our incredible group put on a show (literally!) in New York City this past weekend as they sought to prove their status as the greatest football fans in front of NFL legends Jerome Bettis and Sterling Sharpe, as well as Hollywood star Scott Caan.
Ralph (representing Miami), Stephanie (Pittsburgh), Shannon (Minnesota), Lori (New England), Nikki (Indianapolis), Amanda (San Diego), Kathy (New Orleans) and Aretina (Green Bay) all put in some long Fandemonium hours and stepped up to prove their football skills, knowledge, and excitement. Things kicked-off with some city fun at the Empire State Building, Chelsea Piers, and an in-studio rapping contest, but the most important part of the weekend was putting the advice of Monster.com career expert Paul Miller to work at the board room table with Jerome and Sterling for the official interviews.
All of our candidates heeded the career advice of Paul and dressed the part, had a game plan, and impressed everyone they met with their background knowledge. They had obviously done their homework. Our New England finalist, Lori, even asked to try on The Bus’ Super Bowl XL ring … and he said yes!
Overall, it was an incredible weekend in the Big Apple as eight of the biggest NFL fans in the world converged on one city to spread the Fandemonium. Look for some behind-the-scenes photos and videos at www.facebook.com/fandemonium and www.twitter.com/monsterdof.

It’s not all about the finalists, though. You could win tickets to join me at the Super Bowl in South Florida just for voting.
