Another Contest!

As you may have seen, there was a pretty great prize from the good people at Pepsi/Frito-Lay/Gatorade available to one of the winners of the HBIC Playoff Pool. Mari N. claimed the $75 CDN gift certificate for the NHL's online store, and will most likely be putting it to good use. Congratulations again, Mari, on your great run in the HBIC Playoff Pool. But this brings me to another opportunity for the readers of this blog compliments of the good people at Gatorade. They want to send one lucky entrant to the sidelines for three incredible games: an NFL game, an NBA game, and the 2011 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh!

Let's check the video they sent me first.

Now, if you're a Canadian reading this, you've already made it past the fine print. I apologize to the international readers visiting here, but Gatorade Canada is running this contest. I have no control over this. I'm just the messenger.

If you are Canadian, though, click here to visit the Gatorade website. Click on the "Enter Now" link, and get yourself signed up. You only have until July 10 to be eligible for the three trips!

If you are the lucky winner, here's what you'll be taking part in:
  1. Get On The Ice: Live large at the 2011 NHL Winter Classic®!
    • Tickets for two to the game.
    • Watch the practice from the glass.
    • Flight and hotel for two.
    • $500 CDN for the winner.
  2. Get On The Field: Experience the action at a 2010 NFL game!
    • Tickets for two to a 2010 regular season game.
    • Watch the pre-game warm-up from the sidelines.
    • Flight and hotel for two.
    • $500 CDN for the winner.
  3. Get On The Floor: Rule courtside at an NBA game!
    • Front row courtside tickets for two to a 2011 regular season NBA game.
    • Flight and hotel for two.
    • $500 CDN for the winner.
Not bad, right? So get entering!

I don't use Gatorade when playing sports myself, but I cannot thank them enough for offering up some amazing prizes and contests on this site. They have been extremely generous, and they certainly deserve a "thank you" from this writer for all they have provided in some of the contests I have run. Thank you, Gatorade, for bringing forth another great contest for sports fans and the readers of HBIC!

Now if I were to win, I'd obviously be pumped about going to the 2011 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic. Under no circumstances would I miss that game simply because a Washington-Pittsburgh clash is always excellent hockey!

For the NFL and NBA games, I'm not sure where I'd go. Maybe Denver for a Broncos game? Perhaps some place warm like Miami or Los Angeles for a Heat or Lakers game? It would all depend, I suppose, on where ever I felt like going.

Here's the key: it could be you deciding on where you'd like to go! All you have to do is enter the contest. No purchase is required, and you're not required to subscribe to any newsletters. Get in the contest, kids! It's a chance of a lifetime!

Before leaving, I just want to say thank you to Gatorade one more time for allowing me to talk a little about this great contest!

Until next time, keep your sticks on the ice!

This is actually quite amusing. Considering that most if not all of these events will be in the US, one would think it would be open to those of us south of the border.

Why have a giveaway for NFL tickets?
Uhhh... don't you guys have your own league.... and code of football?

The giveaway was designed by Gatorade, Kate. Since most Canadians don't get to NFL games, it's an opportunity that is pretty special if you win.
