This week we will poke around sports looking at how teams are staying connected with fans through social media as games have been suspended and operations shut down.
First, the simple act of providing some interesting activities like coloring. Teams and mascots have adapted their logo and art into line drawings for fans to print and color. Examples abound, like this one from the Columbus Clippers:

You can level this up and ask fans to send their masterpieces back. Teams are finding ways to thank, repost and share theses photos on their sites and social channels.
There are inexpensive services (like Fiverr) who can convert your photos, logo and art into simple line art for you if you don’t have the graphic department or skills to crank that out.
Get those printers ready, we’ve got some #Isles coloring pages! Make sure you share the finished masterpieces with us. 😍🖍🎨 pic.twitter.com/TaCPNXML9y
