Win A Trip To The All-Star Game And Some Other Fun Stuff

I moved to Raleigh, NC in 1997. At the time the Raleigh-Durham area was the best place to go for jobs and whatnot. It turned out to also be a great place to get a great sandwich. About 2 miles down the road from my apartment was a Schlotzsky's. We don't have Schlotzsky's up here in Buffalo and I really wish we did because the sambos are really good. i used to get this roast beef sandwich on sourdough. I haven't had one in about 8 years but I can still taste it. Mmm mmm good.

Now, in honor of their new Big League Clubz sandwiches, the delicious restaurant has something yummy for baseball fans - a whole slew of contests and games at

Here's your chance to win a trip to St. Louis for the All-Star Game, get a personalized mini-bat, play games online, and get baseball scores on your desktop. All very cool stuff.

You can register online at to enter the All-Star Game contest.

To get the mini-bat, you need to visit a Schlotzsky’s and try one of the Big League Clubz sandwiches. You'll get baseball cards for doing this at the store. Collect three cards, and upload a pic of yourself holding the cards, and if you're one of the first 1,000 to do, you'll get a free personalized mini-bat. They sent me the cards as part of this promo so I will be doing this very soon so you can check and see what I did. Assuming I can find them that is. While I was in Toronto, the wife did some "nesting" with the baby coming in 6 weeks, and I think she moved them.

Anyhow, check all this stuff out at Good luck!

Peace, love and Pinstripes (and be back later with some Yankee stuff),


ps - if this post looks familiar, it should. The good people at Subway Squawkers (aka Lisa) were kind enough to let me "plagiarize" what they wrote. I couldn't have said it better myself. The part about eating at Schlotzsky's in Raleigh is true though. Man they had some great sambos.
