@TheCUTCH22 Shirt Giveaway
You, the readers of this blog and have voted for this week’s giveaway to be a Pittsburgh Pirates shirt.
If you’re new to this blog, welcome.
So far this year I’ve given away a Matt Wieters shirt to Joey Orr,
a Brandon Phillips shirt to Matt Jackson,
a Dustin Pedroia shirt to Stephen D,
a Phillies shirt to Connor,
a Dodgers shirt to Matt Jackson,
a Ryan Zimmerman shirt to Big Brown Fox
a Nick Markakis shirt to NYBisons,
a CC Sabathia shirt to TeenRedsFan
a 2012 Pirates Wall Calendar to Philadelphia45
a Brewers shirt to NYBisons
and a this David Wrigh shirt to Howie
This week’s shirt will feature the Pirates best player and face of the franchise, Andrew McCutchen.
Throughout the 2011 season, the Pirates gave away t-shirts to their fans on Fridays. One of those shirts was an Andrew McCutchen shirt. Luckily, I just happened to get about 30 of that shirt. (I have 243 tickets and attended 60+games at PNC Park, that left a lot of tickets for exchanges!)
Here’s the shirt in it’s entirety.
I didn’t bother taking a picture of the back, but there’s an ad about the size of a dollar bill for some pizza joint. Figures. Oh well, its still a great shirt right?
So how do you win this shirt? It’s easy.
I post blog entries every day. In fact, I’ve posted about 64 consecutive days now or something like that.
All you have to do to enter this contest is leave a comment or retweet my blog link on twitter.
So, again, to enter:
1) Leave a comment.
You can enter up to seven times per week simply by leaving a comment. Non-pertinent, spam, or inappropriate comments will not be accepted. If you comment multiple times on the same blog entry, it still counts as one entry. For example, if you commented on three different blog posts from this week, you’d have three entries. If you’d comment three times on the same blog posting, it would could as one.
2) Retweet (RT) my posts on Twitter
You can find me on twitter under 333greystreet. Simply retweet my daily posts of my blog link each day and I’ll count that as an entry. My blog is connected to my twitter so that I automatically tweet once I post a new entry. Each day, I’ll search who’s retweeted me and enter those users into a hat along with the commenters. By the way, you do not need to retweet my every tweet, only the tweets that announce a new blog post and url. For example, if I tweeted, ‘I’m going to bed,’ and you retweeted it, it wouldn’t count as an entry, only RT with blog links count.
By the way, Cutch has a twitter account. Maybe he could retweet this link so that Bucco Nation can get their chance to win a shirt?
Anyhow, at the end of the week on Sunday, I’ll have Olivia, Amy or myself choose a name from a hat and announce the winner, or I’ll think of some crazy contest. Yesterday’s David Wright winner, Aaron Howie won thanks to his retweet.
How does everyone feel about the Pirates chances this year? I had them an 81-81 in my Pirates preview, but the division is weakened and wide open. The Reds? They just lost their closer for the entire season. The Cardinals? No more Albert Pujols and Chris Carpenter’s season is in jeopardy – plus he’s 37 and threw 275 innings last year. The Brewers? No more Prince Fielder to protect Ryan Braun. The Cubs? Please. Some loon reamed me out because I had the Cubs in 5th in my Central preview. Even they may be worse than last year after losing Carlos Pena and Aramis Ramirez. The Astros? No chance.
He recently signed a $51.5 million contract for six years, so he now longer has to worry about his contract status. He can relax and enjoy the game. Expect big numbers from Cutch this year.
I’m thinking .304-25-88 with 32 stolen bases thrown in for #22.
How about you? What do you think? How will the Pirates fare in 2012? What about Cutch?
Leave a comment and throw your hat in the ring for the shirt!
Also, there’s only 10 more days until Opening Day! Tomorrow we’ll be in single digits!
