This morning we were fortunate to interview former Olympic level decathlete Spud Alford. Spud has founded an innovative game compnay called Zelosport. Zelosport creates products that put families back together again in the kitchens and living rooms playing wholesome games and building lasting memories. And with Finger Football, as well as all the games that have followed, the playing field is level…regardless of age, size, shape, athletic skills or ability, everyone has the same chance at winning. This game is licensed by the NFL and many collegiate teams as well.
Starting in the Fall of 2008, you’ll begin to see and hear about the Finger Football national tournament holding local, state and a national championship. They’ll provide a structured league format so that anyone wanting to compete on a national level will have that opportunity.
Spud hopes you will give Zelosport and one of their many games like: finger baseball, finger golf, finger soccer and of course the game that started it all finger football the chance to be a part of your family and the many memories you will carry with you throughout your life. For more information about buying your own game please go to their website www.zelosport.com or www.fingerfootball.com
