C O N T E S T !

Figured it was time to run my own giveaway, so I’ll give it a whirl.  Winner gets a relic or auto card from your favorite team (baseball, football, hockey, basketball) from my LCS’s inventory.  Not a big deal, and no promises, but I’ll try to find the best card available, be it GU or AU.  Maybe some throw-ins as well — who knows.

First, the lead-in:  this Sunday is my birthday.  Yes, that’s right, September 11th.  It was a tragic day for my parents long before it was for the U.S.A.  (tacky joke?  yeah, sorry)  This Sunday is one of those Big Round Number Birthdays, too.  Which means that that innocence-shedding day back in 2001 was also a Big Round Number Birthday — just not as big.

Here’s how to enter the contest: leave one comment with your guess as to what I had planned for my birthday back in 2001.  (Hint #1:  I did not want to go to work and deal with the inevitable black balloons and black birthday cake with tombstones on it.  Hint #2:  I did follow through on what I had planned on doing, in spite of the horrible news on TV and radio that morning and the rest of the day)

The actual answer is pretty unusual, so I don’t expect a totally correct answer (I don’t think I’ve mentioned it on “é rayhahn, rayhahn” and if you DO know, then you’re not one of my card collecting blogger friends, so MUM’S THE WORD). That said, I will award it to whom I believe has the closest to the correct answer. Contest closes Saturday night at midnight CDT, and I’ll post the winner Sunday afternoon.

Looking forward to some interesting guesses. While I’m hoping this is as fun for you as it is for me, please also remember to hug your family, thank God for your life and your country, and remember those who lost their lives ten years ago.

  1. You, Mo and K went down to the corner to throw tomatoes at the ‘Vette that drove by. Maybe that was a better guess for your 17th birthday. Hopefully none of you got caught if you did try it… looking back at it, washing a Corvette as punishment wasn’t so bad for a bunch of country kids.

    Happy B-day.

  2. You went to a Jeter card signing under the arch?

  3. You went to the roller derby. 🙂

  4. You went to see a Broadway show, but off-Broadway, like on Main Street or maybe 33rd Circle. Then you got ice cream laced with LSD at the local 31 Flavors.

    And you thought nobody would guess!

  5. Karaoke at a bar?

    Sure, why not.

  6. I say you went spelunking! I know I wanted to crawl into a cave on 9/11.

    Happy Birthday! Don’t turn on the TV that day.

  7. I’m going to say that you went skydiving.

    Hope you have a great birthday!

  8. I’m going to guess you went to a theme park of some sort.

  9. I’m guessing you went to play paintball…

    Happy early birthday as well my friend.

  10. I too will be celebrating a round-number birthday this Sunday, my 30th. I’m guessing that you went to the rollerskating rink with your family.
