With the latest in the Corona Virus shutting down all the sports and keeping them shut down, we thought we would mention the awesome things being done at Awesemo.com to help everyone get through these tough times.
The Chicago-based fantasy sports and sports betting content company focused on providing entertaining content coupled with accurate fantasy projections that our subscribers can use to win at daily fantasy sports (DFS).
A passionate fantasy sports player and a former corporate attorney, who founded this company two years ago together with Alex ‘Awesemo’ Baker (the #1 ranked DFS player–yes, they keep rankings for that) and another professional DFS player, Eddie Lai. In these two years, they’ve rapidly grown with a current staff of 60+ and millions of page views.
As sports events were “canceled” overnight due to Coronavirus related concerns, we were all shocked. With a lot of time on our hands, they decided to do something different.
Over the next few weeks, they are going to air live-streams over a variety of platforms (YouTube, Twitch, and Periscope), but instead of talking about fantasy sports, they are simulating NBA games with live commentary using NBA2K. Viewers will be able to enter free daily contests to answer questions based on the nightly game in order to win prizes.
On top of that, they are running a free-to-play bracket-style tournament starting next Monday, March 30th, running for two weeks with a $10,000 top prize ($15,000 in total prizes). Our hope is to provide our community and sports fans in general with some enjoyment and levity during these times when both are in short supply.
Here’s some more info about the contests they are offering: https://www.awesemo.com/nba2k/
