Tis the season of winning

05 Jan

This has been the season of winning.  Since December, I’ve been lucky enough to win 3 different contests.

It's a trapThe first contest I won was on December 21 via Twitter@FamilyGuyonFOX was giving away 25 copies of their new Star Wars spoof, “It’s a Trap!” That should be on its way, if it isn’t already.

Torch red

The second contest I won was through “You Could Win a BlackBerry Torch” sweepstakes on December 22.  They were giving two BlackBerry Torch 9800s away each day from Nov. 20 – Dec. 24, one via Twitter and the other via Facebook.  I scored me a red Torch (approximate retail value of $499).  Unfortunately, when I was entering the contest, I didn’t take into account that the Torch is only available for AT&T, which means I won’t be able to use it on Verizon.  It arrived today.  For now, it means it will sit in the closet.

Colts hat

My last contest that I won was another Twitter contest.  This was by Jim Irsay, the owner of the Indianapolis Colts.  The contest, an AFC Division Champion hat, all for spelling the word “cheese” correctly.  Seriously, that was it!

It was a good few weeks, I have to admit.  The only thing that would have made it better is if the Torch would be available on Verizon.

    Very cool! Glad I know someone who’s won something. I feel a little less bad about my twitter spamming.

      @Brian, what’s wrong with a little Twitter spamming now and then? See what happens when your tweet is picked out a thousand? 😀
