Sports Ticket Sweepstakes: Fans and Fansites

By Amy | October 8th, 2009

If you’re a real sports fan, you don’t just show it once a week during the big game! You keep up with team gossip, check standings often, and most of you have a favorite place online you can’t stay away from, whether it’s a mainstream sports site like ESPN, or a small fan page for your favorite team.

This next contest is for all of you – the sports fans AND the fansites who work so hard to keep you informed!

Beginning November 9 and lasting for one week, we’ll ask our Facebook fans to vote for their favorite sports or team-related fansite. At the end of the week, we’ll have a random drawing from all votes posted, and we’ll award two sports tickets to the winning voter, two more sports tickets for the website they voted for, and ANOTHER two tickets for the website that received the most votes throughout the week! That’s SIX TICKETS we’re giving away!

There’s plenty more details, so check the links below for the full details on how to win – and if you still have questions, ask away over at our Facebook page. We’re always listening. :)

Contest Winner Announced

By Amy | September 14th, 2009

In place of a Friday contest update, it’s the Monday winner’s announcement!

Thanks again to everyone who took part in the contest last week! After five days and ten questions, the winner of our trivia contest was Ryan Burkeen of Mexia, TX with 57 points – and as a Grand Prize, Ryan will be sitting 6th row at a Blink 182 concert ten days from now! (Not bad for just watching our Facebook and twitter feeds for a week and being quick with Google.)

For anyone who missed them the first time around, we’ll recap the last two questions:

Question #9: I’m sung by a band who has toured with Blink 182, and my lyrics include X-Men and a 12-sided die. What song am I?

Answer: Weezer’s song “In the Garage” features these lyrics: “I’ve got a twelve sided die – I’ve got Kitty Pride and Nightcrawler too, waiting there for me, yes I do.”

Question #10: George Bellamy of the UK band The Tornados had the first British single to ever hit number one on the US charts. Decades later, his son released a song widely thought to be inspired by that single. What was the name of the original single, and what was the song inspired by it?
