Contest time again
March 26, 2012 - John Mehno
Later this week, this blog will officially open the annual "Guess How Many Games the Pirates Will This Season" contest.
You guess the right number, you win a box of leftover promotional stuff. It's that simple. It costs nothing to enter, so you have nothing to lose, and a box of leftover promotional stuff to potentially win.
There will be a new wrinkle this year: We will have a tiebreaker question as well. This means that a number is not automatically shut off as soon as someone chooses it. Several contestants have wept uncontrollably when told their number was out of play, so I'm taking on the additional bookkeeping responsibility.
The rules and procedures will be posted here at 3 p.m. on Thursday. That will be a full week before the opener and will give everyone a chance to think about it (or have their dog pick a number out of a hat).
Tell the neighbors, phone the out-of-town family members: The contest will be back on Thursday.
YOU could be the winner.
