Make a Gold Medal Impression on Dad

It’s Thursday. Father’s Day is this Sunday. You’re still without a gift. You are completely hosed.

Maybe not! Is Dad a sports fanatic? Read on!

Check out Gold Medal Impressions, limited edition sports photos by photographer Dick Druckman. (To learn more about him and his impressive portfolio, click here.) Bottom line: Gold Medal Impressions offers breathtaking photos of moments in sports history… say, suitable as a special gift for a sports fanatic?

Through their incredible generosity, I’m pleased to be able to offer one lucky Want Not reader the 8″ x 10″ matted photo of your choice from Druckman’s extensive collection. What Dad wouldn’t love that?

To enter for a chance to win, simply leave a comment on this post by 11:59 p.m. on Saturday, June 14th, 2008. One entry per person, valid email address, be kind to animals and small children, etc. Winner to be determined by random drawing and best curve ball.

I will announce the winner on Father’s Day, and then you and Dad can pick out which photo to get. (Good luck choosing, because I’ve already marked about ten I simply must have.)

Ready? Go!


  1. This sounds awesome! Thanks so much!

  2. It may look like I’m doing nothing, but I’m actively waiting for my problems to go away.

    Thanks again pretty pretty Mir and random number generator!

  3. I’d bet his choice will be John Elway.

  4. Woohoo…another cool contest! Count me in. 🙂

  5. Count me in for a sports fan hubby.

  6. Count me in, my hubby is a super sports nut! Seriously, I am a football widow!! Funny story, when we were newly married I woke in the middle of the night in bed and sat straight up. I woke myself up because I was shouting, “ARE YOU READY FOR SOME FOOTBALL!!!” at the top of my lungs. I have been brain washed by Monday night football.


  7. Thanks!

  9. How exciting, my husband would love to add this to his collection!
