2011 Coach Vail’s Click your Picks

Football season is here, finally, and practice has begun for the NCAA, NFL, and even for the Stafford Bulldogs youth football. High school practice begins next week. On a local level we are pretty optimistic at the youth and high school levels. I will be an assistant coach for the B-Team this year and my son Noah will be on the team. We will be starting “Coach Vail’s Click your Picks” for the first week of then NFL season.
It’s a fun competition that will take place every week where you pick the winners of the games and if you do well you can win prizes to local businesses. We had a great time with it last year and look to improve on it this year. I look forward to working with Paradiso Insurance intern and Stafford native Kevin Smith on making it bigger and better.
The highlight of the competition was shooting the videos with my picks for the week. We went to local businesses and asked local residents there opinions, it was fun. Check out two of the better videos that we did last year below. You can see all of the videos, the links are on the right side bar, stay tuned!

Paradiso Insurance Restaurant Reviews

Starting next week the staff here at Paradiso Insurance are going to start going out into the community to do reviews of local restaurants and try to help generate some potential consumers for them. We filmed this week’s addition of Coach Vail’s click your picks from Village Pizza on Main St in Stafford Springs(located where the old Arizona Restaurant was). Vivian and George were gracious enough to let us film from there this week and get us started with our new restaurant segments. Check out this video, it’s a good one http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B-SChJC2Tgw. The food was fantastic as you can see in the video. What we wanted to do for next week is let you decide where we go next, so we created a poll of four local restaurants. Make your choice and follow the results then make sure to tune in each week to get a review of one of our fine local eateries. You can also vote again at paradisoinsuranceblo.com
