I'll review the contest process for those who care. There were three different ways to participate:
1. Respond to the March 2nd post. Everyone who did received one entry.
2. Promote my contest on your blog. Everyone who did received an additional two entries.
3. Respond to any or all of my posts during the month of March. I used random.org to select one of my posts. Anyone who left a comment, received four additional entries. Here's the randomization for the post of the month:
There were nine people who left comments and each of those people received four extra entries. All entries were entered into random.org. I clicked "randomize" five times and DOC's name was on top.
I know... it's confusing. Now you know how my students feel. Anyways... hopefully DOC is reading this. If you are, you need to email me your favorite team, so I can start pulling your cards and fill up your Priority Mail box.
Okay... let's get to this April's contest.
This month, I'm going to give away the famous 1989 Fleer Billy Ripken error card. Merriam-Webster defines "fool" as a person lacking in judgement. And since Billy refused to take responsibility for his actions for nearly 20 years, I decided to make him the focus of this month's contest.
Don't worry... I'll throw in a few other "fools" to make it worth your while. How about these guys...
The guy who almost changed his name to Hachi Go.
The guy who shot himself in the leg.
The guy who forgot how to speak English.
A pair of guys who don't know how to celebrate.
We'll be using the same format as last month:
A. Respond to today's question of the day below.
B. Promote this contest on your blog, and leave a link below.
C. Leave comments in my posts throughout the month of April.
As a bonus, I will randomly select one of my posts from the month of April using the same website. Anybody who left a comment on that particular post will have their name added four additional times. That means if you play your cards right, you could end up with seven possible entries.
Let's get this started. Here's today's question:
Who's the biggest fool enshrined on cardboard?
Leave your comments and/or contest plugs below.
Thanks to everyone who participated last month and congratulations DOC on winning March's contest.
Happy Monday and sayonara!
