Are you a New York Giants fan?

Even if your not, you may want to jump on the bandwagon at least for the remainder of summer.

After their impressive Super Bowl win last season, the team is rewarding fans with an online app, that will allow you to virtually wear and take photos with the team’s Super Bowl ring and trophy.

You can pose next to the trophy or snap a shot of the virtual ring mounted to your finger, and then post the pictures on social network sites such as Facebook and Twitter for a chance to win prizes and inclusions on

“We’re really trying each day and each week to figure out how to use social media as it grows and evolves to let us communicate and touch fans in a more meaningful way than they ever have before,” Giants CMO Mike Stevens told Mashable in an interview. (Press release)

“This just seemed like the right thing to do,” he told Mashable. “We’re taking something sacred to the organization and letting fans do something they couldn’t do before.”

The app is called GoldRun and is available for Android and iOS.  After installing the app click on the New York Giants image and then the camera icon.

After your photo shoot you can either directly upload your photos to Facebook and Twitter from the app, or save them in your photo library to show all your friends at a later time.

The app is free for the time being, and we definitely recommend you go check it out.
