Free stuff is cool
I love entering contests on the internet, though I don’t recall ever winning anything. But it’s still fun to enter contests. I really want to win a drumset, but I’ll settle for a stack of baseball cards.
88 Topps Cards is giving away a bunch of baseball cards. Right now, the contest is for cards #51-100, which includes Dale Murphy, Roger Clemens, and the amazing Jack Clark, who many thought was robbed of the 1987 NL MVP award. Actually, they were just bitter because Andre Dawson clearly had a better year.
Here is a website that lists a bunch of music-related contests. Most of them are just “enter here,” although occasionally you have to answer some stupid questions about who your favorite band is. I wonder what some of these people think when I answer “Poison” as my favorite band? Is it my fault that they wrote one of the greatest party songs ever? Heck, they’ve written several of the greatest party songs ever…”Nothin’ But A Good Time,” “Unskinny Bop,” “I Want Action,” and “Look What the Cat Dragged In.”
