Thanks to the University of South Carolina soccer coach Shane Beamer and the help of a teammate, a Gamecock fan can finally watch this weekend’s spring game.
Dick’s Sporting Goods rep Justin Caudill had requested Saturday off work for the game but when bad weather caused it to be postponed for Sunday he feared he might have to miss it. Of course, he turned to Twitter for help.
He tweeted, “Hey @CoachSBeamer, can you drop me a note to get out of work for the Spring Game ?! Please and thank you, ”and his wish came true.
Beamer replied, tagging Caudill’s employer with the words: “Hey @dicks, @JBlaineCaudill
will be excused from work on Sunday. We need him at Williams Brice Stadium to support him
@GamecockFB. Many Thanks”
As the head of a sporting goods store, Dick’s management understands both priorities and public relations and has come up with a solution with the help of a teammate from Caudill. Your answer came soon, including on Twitter.
“When @CoachSBeamer says“ Jump ”, you say“ Yes. ”@JBlaineCaudill, one of your teammates has taken over your shift.
Warming the heart of every Gamecock fan has been a happy ending and one of the first that all of these fans hope for is many happy moments delivered by Coach Beamer.
