More Wii contest wonderfulness

That darn holiday weekend—getting in the way of dealing with the Riiflex contest from last week! Hmph.

I did not forget you, my pretties. I’ve got your winner right here. The random number generator took a look at all 250+ entries and scoffed, and then promptly spit out number 9 as our lucky winner. That’s Alexa—congratulations, Alexa! Please check your email!

Big thanks to all who played, and special thanks to the awesome folks at Riiflex for the product donation. They wanted me to let you know that they’ve just dropped the price of these amazing little babies at Amazon (go to “available from these sellers” and you’ll see the option to buy from “riidistribution”).

Alright; onward! This week I have more Wii fun for you, and this time it’s of the batter up variety. Atari recently released Backyard Sports: Sandlot Sluggers, bringing an awesome baseball experience right into your living room. I’ve got three copies of the Wii game to give away, so that’s what I’m going to do.

Want to win one? First go review the contest rules and regulations, then come on back here and leave a comment on this post by 8:00 a.m. Eastern (that’s 5:00 a.m. Pacific) on Thursday, June 3rd, 2010 to be entered. Winners to be determined by random number generator and batting average. Many will enter, three will win. And I will still pitch like a girl.

Ready? Go!
