Lou Seal works a stadium really well.
I’ve been told I’m an uber networker. It’s not a compliment all the time, but I’m not one to contradict other people’s observations.
At the last SF Giants game, I did a little observing on my own and I spotted a rising celebrity networking: Lou Seal.
He works an entire stadium and I break down his genius strategies for doing so.
-1- He Moves.
-2- He Makes You Laugh.
-3- He Hands Out Free Stuff.
-4- He Leverages His TWO Dance Manuvers.
-5- He Builds An Impromptu Entourage
-6- He Is Obnoxious But He Knows His Limits
-7- He Lets the Stadium Work Him.
-8- He Never Misses a Photo Op
-9- He Never Touches His PDA.
