Don’t Tread Challenge: 1st Entry – The Speech

TSG is tweaking the rules for the Don’t Tread Challenge. As folks are starting to put in the effort, there is no reason to wait to get videos out in the public. We’ll be accepting entries for the next month or so and then select 3 finalists to be voted on by the TSG community.

Video Hype: The “Don’t Tread Challenge”


Update (2/15): TSG is tweaking the rules a bit. We will post rolling entries for the next month or so. Then whittle down to 3 finalists for the readers to vote one.

4 MONTHS!…that’s right folks, we are four months out from the Rumble in Rustenberg when the USMNT will hopefully annihilate England on the way to America’s first World Cup.

(Hey, February is still reserved for dreaming…we’ll have enough reality come June. And George Cross…let me have this one.)

To mark this milestone on the Yanks march to through South Africa, TSG is cranking up the USMNT hype machine.

Today, TSG announces the first annual Don’t Tread Challenge for the most insanely awesome video that gets fans and foreigners fired up about USMNT. Something like this video.

Our goal is to feature the first video one month from today, March 12th. TSG’s video committee will select the finalists and then fans will vote for the winner. The prize is to-be-determined, but is guaranteed to be more substantial in meaning than monetary value.

So, TSG faithful, please spread the word.

Some details for those producing videos…

  1. Thank you.
  2. Videos will be accepted through March 12th.
  3. All videos must be new and include the name of the competition in the title.
  4. Length is flexible, but somewhere between 2 minutes and 4 minutes sounds about right.
  5. Email link / video or any questions to contact[at]theshinguardian[dot]com.
