I know, I know. You don’t have to tell me. I’m behind on just about everything these days. We opened our incredible review box how many days ago now? We teased the contest how long after that? And we’re just now getting to the actual start of the contest??? In the middle of a group break, where it could potentially get lost in the shuffle of endless Fleer boxes? What are we thinking?
I bet the next thing we’re going to tell you is that we still haven’t come up with a decent idea for what the contest is going to be and that really we’re just typing this fake diatribe of disappointment as a stall tactic hoping that something will pop into our heads miraculously by the time we finish this sentence so that it looks like we really spent all this time planning some awesome, yet simple idea that the whole world would want to enter.
Damn. Didn’t work. Okay, let me think, now….
I got it! I’m going to make YOU think. I want answers to the following questions, but there’s a catch. Your answers can’t be the same as anyone else’s answer. I will allow duplicates only if an earlier comment doesn’t get approved in time. Otherwise, if you say the same thing as anyone else, the entry is disqualified.
The prizes you’re going for are the three on-card autographs we pulled. Here are some reminder pictures:
Rookie Autos above; Fake Ice Auto below
As for the triple patch – that will be placed on ebay, since the majority of you voted to have us sell it and buy boxes for a free group break with the money. The asking price seems to have dropped some since, but it should still be enough for a couple boxes with money left over for the shipping. There are a couple other things to assemble and throw up there and we’ll post the auction link on the blog once it’s live so you can chart the progress or promote it or ignore it completely.
Anyway, to win one of the three autos above, give a completely original answer to the following 3 questions. The qualifying entries will be thrown into the Randomification 3000 Deluxe machine to pop out 3 winners.
Name your favorite movie dealing with royalty (either in subject matter or in the title).
Michael Jackson is the King of Pop. Howard Stern is the King of All Media. What person would you appoint to be the King or Queen of something, and what would they rule over?
I just saw an old Ricky Gervais bit (Warning: NSFW language) about this and I want to know your answer. Why send ALL the kings horses and ALL the kings men to put Humpty Dumpty back together again?
So, there you are. How about we give everyone until the end of Monday night to think about it and get their answers in? Then if we can actually get to it, we’ll post the winners on Tuesday night! How’s that for prompt. I know. Still not good.
