In 2011 my good friend John Morrison and I were chosen to participate in the first ever (and incidentally last) Mercedes-Benz Tweet Race. What is this you may ask? The good folks at Mercedes had chosen four teams of two to drive cars from different locations across the USA in a Twitter powered adventure. Our destination? Dallas, Texas just in time for The Super Bowl.
We ended up in 4th place (out of 4) but our consolation prize was getting to attend the Super Bowl. The only downside...I had to watch the Green Bay Packers win. (I'm a Bears fan).
