Reminder: Backyard Baseball contest

Don’t forget—you only have until just before midnight tonight to enter the contest to win a copy of Backyard Baseball 2010 for your Wii (and for family harmony) (hey, that rhymes). That means that if you haven’t entered yet, you should probably hurry up and do it before you see something shiny and forget. Not that that’s ever happened to me.

And remember, I’m not trying to be obnoxious with the whole enter-the-contest-on-the-contest-post thing. There just isn’t a way for me to incorporate the occasional wrongly-entered comment or (even more occasional) email to announce “Pick me!” I’m impressed by your longing, but I can only tell the random number generator to pick a number between 1 and something, not a number between 1 and something and hey, also let me know if you want to pick one of these unnumbered comments.

Maybe the Cookie Monster from the previous post could figure out a way to make that work, but so far, I haven’t. Enter on the contest post, please. Thank you!


  1. There’s nothing obnoxious about asking people to follow the rules. And you’ve got all of us to point and laugh at the poor people who don’t follow them 🙂

  2. Thumbs up to Beth R! Without rules, it would be pandomanium, not to mention complete and utter chaos! Whew, glad to get that out of my system…now I can get on with my day! 🙂

  3. Pick me! (Okay, I don’t really want to enter, but I feel left out. If I say it here, then I can pretend I’m part of the crowd, but be sure I won’t actually win the item in question that I don’t really want. Right? Ummm…yeah.)

    And see? No one finds you obnoxious, because rules are in place for a reason, and your reasons are much more logical than some others I’ve seen. “Because I said so!” isn’t the best reason I’ve heard (although it’s your site, so you could very well say that without having a better reason); however, “I can’t count an un-numbered vote!” is a very logical and great reason. 🙂

  4. Hear, hear!
