Justin Morneau Shirt Giveaway
If you’ve been reading this blog, you know that each week I give away a shirt to my readers.
So how do you win a shirt? It’s easy.
I post blog entries every day. In fact, I’ve posted about 71 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.
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.
This week’s shirt is a Twins shirt:
Here’s the front:
It’s a Justin Morneau shirt:
#33 and former AL MVP:
Still new with tags:
I can give you whatever shirt size you choose from S through XXL. The store I buy these at has tons. I guess no on in Pittsburgh cares much for the Twins.
The Twins lost 99 games last year, but that’s due in part to Justin Morneau being injured for most of the season with concussion symptoms. Throw in an injury riddled season from franchise player Joe Mauer, and the Twins had a disasterous campaign. I actually picked the Twins to make a 12 game improvement in my AL Central preview, but I still think they’ll finish near the bottom of the division, with only the White Sox worse.
It’s a shame what happened to Morneau – when he was injured he was hitting .345 with 18 homers and a 1.055 OPS, and that’s in only a half season of games. He hasn’t been the same player since. There were rumors floating around that he may have to retire.
He’s doing OK this spring though, in 60 at bats he’s hitting .250 with 3 homers. Will he ever be the same player? Let’s hope so.
What do you all think of the Twins and/or Morneau? How will the 2012 season go for them?
Can you believe Opening Day is just 3 days away? THREE! And just two until us PNC ballhawks descend on PNC Park for the Opening Day batting practice the day before the actual opener. I’ve really got to find my sunglasses.
And on a side note,
With the season starting and trips planned to Cleveland, Baltimore, Washington and New York City this month, what a great time for my car to break down too. I’m dropping it off tomorrow and taking the bus to work. I need a new car…
