Contest Update

Wow... it's crazy what one Sunday evening baseball game can do to our contest. The Blue Jays 3 to 0 win over the Rangers caught a lot of you (including myself) off guard... as you can see by the "contest within a contest" results:

As you can see... Dawgbones, Martyn, and mmmrhubarb capitalized on this mini contest and each added four points to their total, while Baseball Nut, Spiegel83, and Play at the Plate each lost five points.

Here's a quick look at our current standings:

1st Place: dawgbones, Hairylemon, Martyn, & Ryan G (31 points)
2nd Place: Baseball Nut, jaybarkerfan, & Kirk Jacobson (25 points)
3rd Place: Greg Zakwin (24 points)

Remember... everyone has a chance at winning a prize, not just the top point earners.

At the end of the contest... for every point you have, your name will be entered into random.org... after that we'll leave it up to fate. However... it's basic math... the more points you have, the better your odds are of winning.

If you see any mistakes... leave a comment below and I'll make corrections.

Now for the current list of prizes...

Package A: 90's Football Inserts/Parallels BV: $30+

Just a reminder that the contest will end this Friday, July 29th. Hopefully, I'll do all of the randomizations that evening and over the weekend, the winners can contact me with their prize selection.

The first place winner will tell me which prize they want... while the second place person will pick two prizes (just in case the first place winner takes their first choice)... and the third place person will select three prizes... and so on... and so on... and so on.

I appreciate everyone's support... especially those who have been around since the middle of June... when it all began.

Stay tuned for at least one more post and possibly one more prize addition before this Friday.

I hope everyone has a great week... Sayonara!


  1. That sucks. And I'm not just talking about the Rangers losing.

  2. I wish you contest never ended, it so much fun!

    As for last night, I thought the Rangers would win, but hedged my bets!

  3. Damn, I figured the Rangers would at least get 1 run, As Agent 86 would say, "Missed it by that much!"

  4. I took it on the chin with that one, oh well I guess I will have to make it up next time.

  5. Oh well, can't win 'em all. Anyways, I have loved the contest. It's a great success.
