AKRON-Goodyear has teamed up with Downtown Digital to provide ``blimp coverage'' of a computer trivia football game. Those who visit Downtown Digital's Internet site at http://www.dtd.com/tmw can play the ``2-Minute Warning'' football trivia game with a chance to win a football autographed by hall-of-famer Dick Butkus.
During the game, the Goodyear blimp ``flys'' over the field. Players can view the game from a pilot's eye view by clicking on the blimp during the action.
``The Goodyear blimp and football are a popular combination,'' said Rob Elder, Goodyear's electronic marketing manager. ``Our participation in 2-Minute Warning is a natural fit.''
Goodyear's own Internet site also is featuring a scavenger hunt trivia game. Answers for the contest can be found at http://www.goodyear.com.
Answering all seven questions in January makes players eligible for a random drawing in February for a blimp ride. Internet users also can print a $5 mail-in rebate for each Goodyear tire they buy.
