Contest #3 Winner / Contest #4 Info

I'm sitting here with my laptop, watching the final game, hanging out in Jason's HDLR watching the game. It's currently tied at 3 in the bottom of the 4th. Jason Giambi's 3rd inning walk put the total # of extra base hits, walks, and stolen bases at 18, which means both Joe and Tom tie for the prize. As stated in the countless # of posts I've made with respect to the giveaways, the winner will be chosen at random. In the event of a tie, a coin toss was held earlier today to decide the winner and it came up tails which means Tom wins the a copy of the Essential Games Of Yankee Stadium DVD Box Set. Congrats Tom and tough break Joe.

The 4th of the 5 Essential Games Of Yankee Stadium DVD Box Set giveaways will start Tuesday night when the Yankees and Blue Jays series starts. The question for this contest is: What will be the total combined attendance for their 3 game series in Toronto? (attendance figure will be taken from the box score)? Right now there are only 2 entries so if you'd like to submit a guess for a chance to win, here's what you need to do:

  • E-mail your guess to me at the e-mail address listed in the upper left under "contact me"
  • 1 guess per person
  • Leave a comment to let me know that you submitted your guess along with your name (first name and initial)
  • Make sure to put your name in the comment if you're posting it as an anonymous user, so I know who is who and can match them up with your e-mail
  • There is no need to leave the guess in the comments--this will negate the "price is right" strategy
  • The deadline to submit a guess for the 4th giveaway is Tuesday at 7:07 pm EST, which is when the 1st game of the Yankees/Blue Jays series starts . So get your guesses in before then and you're good.

You can also submit guesses for the last giveaway also. That questions is:

  • What will the Yankees team batting average be for their 3 game series against Boston?

The answers to all the questions will be in the form of a number. The person that guesses the correct "answer" for the corresponding questions, or comes closest to the correct answer without going over will win. Any ties will be broken by random drawing of all those who are correct or tied for closest to without going over. You can only win once, so if you win the DVD for the 4th series contest, you won't be eligible for the 5th contest.

Thanks and good luck.
