Okay, this is kinda OT for here, but you folks are the only ones I "know" here at OT... Okay, about three months ago (or so) I entered a contest at a bar about 30 miles from home (Flying Saucer for you locals). Nothing was ever thought of it, as it rarely is. The other day, there was a message on my answering machine stating that I was a semi-finalist in "THE ULTIMATE FOOTBALL ROOM GIVEAWAY" and the winner had to be present to "win". I thought, "Cool, how many semi's could there be?" Well, I had to be at a different bar tonight from 8-10. No biggie. Work schedule permitted; it if hadn't, I woulda made arrangements. So, I get a buddy and we head out. We enter the bar, and I ask a waitress about the thing, and she says there are like 80 semi's. Yikes. They drew some names here and there before ten o'clock where they gave away little buckets with hats, a coozie, a shirt, and that was about it. Thinkin' that I was gonna be a total loser because ten o'clock came around without ever hearing my name, my hopes dwindled. Then, the grand prize drawing occured. I gathered around the hot Yuengling girls, who were dressed in high heels, tiny, short, pleated black skirts, a skin tight "referee" shirt, and waited anxiously. They called the grand prize winner, and waited... It was not me. The wait continued and felt like an eternity. After 20, or so, seconds passed, it was evident that the girl was not there. So, they drew another name from the beer pitcher -- USMCsilver (no, not really, but...). Anyway, it was me, I had won. I screamed like a little girl and came forward. The referees were even more delightful up close. They handed me the envelope stating that I could pick up my prize Monday at another location -- The letter states: Recliner Television Keg Box Keg of Yeungling Neon Clock Not sure what to expect, and not being nosy and sounding ungreatful, I didn't ask the hostess exactly what the TV was, but rumor had it that it's a 27" Plasma. I dunno; I don't care. It was free and during the wait, I had a good cheeseburger, some beers, and a Beam and Coke. Tonight was good to me.
