Contest Time Again
March 20, 2014 - John Mehno
Spring is here, and so is the annual Guess How Many Games The Pirates Will Win This Season contest.
It's easy. Your entry will consist of two numbers:
1. The number of games you think the Pirates will win in the 2014 regular season, and...
2. The number of home runs you think the Pirates will hit during the season. That's the tiebreaker.
The regular season is 162 games and starts on Monday, March 31 at home against the Chicago Cubs.
The Pirates won 94 games last season, and they hit 161 home runs.
To enter, send an e-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The winner will receive a box of leftover Pirates promotional stuff via the US Postal Service.
Rules: One entry per person. Employees of the Mirror are not eligible for the prize because they've already had more than their share of good fortune. However, they're welcome to play just for the fun of it. There is no entry fee. No salesmen will call. The prize will only be mailed to an address within the United States. In the unlikely event of a tie beyond the standard tiebreaker, the earliest entry wins.
So think about it, formulate your best guesses and enter today.
As always, I'll establish a special folder for the entries, and the winner will be announced in this space shortly after the Pirates' final regular season game ends on Sunday, Sept. 28.
It's easy, it's fun, it doesn't cost anything to enter, and you just might win a box of leftover (but unused) stuff.
Good luck, and thanks for playing.
