Are You Ready For Some Football?

NBC 5 Taping

This morning, Abt’s very own Josh Davis went to the NBC studios to tape a segment for Weekend Web.  He focused on gearing up for the football season.  The products he highlighted were the Sony KDL40HX800 with a free 3D sync transmitter and 2 3D glasses; the Samsung PN50C450 which features a large screen for a great price; a Bose Cinemate GSII home theater system; a Bears’ themed iPad; Weber Q to maximize your tailgating experience; and the Cuisinart Popcorn Maker which is great for healthy snacks (in between pizza, wings and beer).  If you miss Josh’s spot on TV, the segment will be available online.  What do you think are some must have football gadgets?

Superbowl Fun At Abt

Friday, February 5th, 2010

Looking for a family-friendly Superbowl tailgate party? Come on down to Abt on Sunday for some football fun! We will be having a “throwback” Superbowl party, so dress like you did when the Bears won the Superbowl, 24 years ago. The Atrium will be filled with food, games, and crafts. Featured activities include:

- Making a helmet to support your favorite team in Miami
- Making a “paper” finger to hold up when you cheer on your team
- Having your photo taken in front of a Soldier Field backdrop
- Enjoying tailgate foods with other football fans

These activities begin at 12pm and end at 4pm, which leaves you plenty of time to get home for the big game. Bring you family and friends and we will see you on Superbowl Sunday!

Are You Ready For Some Football…. On HD???

Friday, September 25th, 2009

The leaves are falling and the temperatures will soon plummet too. What does that mean for Chicagoans? It’s time for Football. Whether you are a Bears fan or just a football lover, it’s always important to spend Thursday nights, Sundays, and Monday nights watching all of your favorite games.

Sometimes, a trip to the in-laws is unavoidable. What could be worse than having a family weekend when the Bears and Packers are playing at noon on Sunday? I’ll tell you—going to your in-laws house when they don’t have a football-worthy HDTV. I’m not the only one that feels this way. Samsung actually did a little research on the topic. They commissioned a survey to find out how enticing it would be to have an HDTV at the in-laws.

Samsung’s survey found that Americans, football fans or not, agreed the best TV to watch football on is hi-def. Football fans agreed if they didn’t have the option to watch the big game from the comfort of home on their own HDTV, the best option would be to go to the in-laws if there were a hi-def TV in place. According to the survey, more than 4 out of 10 football fans believe this to be true. Men were more likely than women, however, to make the trek to the in-laws to watch football in hi-def. Samsung also noted, football fans found the quality of TV was more important than the food they ate while watching the game.

Go Bears!
