Meet the Mets Contest! Cash and Prizes!

August 1, 2006

PRIZE: Ok, so there is no cash. But there IS an evening with Buggie, DCSportsChick and her hubby, Fred the Chanuck at the newly re-opened RFK watching our very own Washington Nationals take on the New York Mets, Saturday, August 12.

WHY: Alas, I will be in Atlanta. So I am auctioning off my seat. Let me tell you, these are three of the best people in this town to go to a ballgame with—you don’t want to miss it. Plus, we’re talking killer seats. No nosebleeds here.

HOW TO WIN: Submit the contest entry form, Why I am Worthy of a Free Baseball Ticket.

Why I am Worthy of a Free Baseball Ticket
(and also the company of three of the coolest people in DC)

Points will be awarded for snarkiness and/or hotness.

Cut and paste these questions along with your answers and send to the email address below.


Are you hot or otherwise damned fine looking?
(Please attach a picture so our judges can tell if you are lying)

Do you like David Wright?

Do you like Ryan Church*?

Are you prepared to fight to the death over one or both of these athletes?

Do you know what a balk is?

What was the last baseball game you attended?

Will you buy Buggie a beer or an icee to keep her cool in the hot August sun?

Please detail your tailgaiting prowess:

And don’t forget your picture!

Your judges:

From left to right: Marci, Buggie, DCSportsChick, and Fred the Chanuck

*Buggie says that people who enjoy the vision that is Ryan Church will be disqualified, so chose your answer wisely.

    That picture of you looks familiar…

    It’s one of the few where there is not a drink in my hand. Kidding. But I like it cuz it’s funny. DCSC wouldn’t let me post the funny one I have of her.

    That pic was AWFUL. At least you and Buggie look cute. There will be plenty of time in the future for you to post bad pics of me, promise!

    You can get another when we go to a minor league game (time is running out)!

    “Uh, there won’t be any money. But when you go to RFK, while you’re watching the game, you will receive total consciousness. So you’ve got that going for you, which is nice.”

    Oh hmmm.. I was going to apply, but the questions seem aimed at guys! (I am hot, I’ll still buy a beer, and I tailgate with the best of ’em!).

    I think I can get in good votes from DCSportsChick though!

    DCSC – I don’t think I have an open weekend in August! Gah! Does minor league continue into Sept?

    Phil – Tell us how you really feel. Is it because ATL is 10 games back? It is, isn’t it? Jones is always a highlight though. I am going to my first game at Turner field in a couple of weeks. I think I’ll root for the Brewers just to be contrary.

    I vote that Hammer gets an entry just for misquoting Caddyshack to suit our little contest. Well done.

    MissChatter – Enter! It’s totally not just for guys. We are E.O.! We just like pretty people, that’s all. Yes, we are biased. But we (by “we”, I mean Bug) are the ones with the free ticket, so it’s allowed. When I ask if you like Wright and Church it is because we think they are dreamy. Also, we would like to see an actual baseball fan go to the game, so we are just trying to get a feel for your general level of knowledge. That being said, if you don’t know jack shit about baseball, but are funny…we like that too!

    We like funny!
    We like good lookin’ peoples!
    If that is you, enter now!

    You crack me up. Seriously.

    I wish I were around and I’d all on this like white on rice.

    Remember me?? Tears. I wasn’t even a passing thought in your mind. Now I’m going to have to enter a contest.

    And I’m really hoping that I win.
