Bonus to 5th Blogiversary!

OK here is a way or two to get some bonus points for my Blogiversary Contest!

  • If your blog has a post you feel has been neglected and hasn't had any comments or the love you think it should then post a link to it on this post. Limit 2 links per blog = 1 point per link.

Now here are some bonus questions Correct answers will get extra points, partial answers might get one point. Post guesses here, only one guess per question. Answers will be provided sometime after the contest is over. Some of these will be sheer guessing on your part since not all of these subjects I have ever blogged about.

  1. I'm not sure if I have mentioned it here but I might have. During my college days I participated in an extra curricular activity. I also had a nickname that was associated with the activity. What was that activity and my nickname? (Hint: The nickname came from a movie franchise)
  2. Below are some of the many TV shows I have enjoyed over the years. There have been many others, but I can't list all of them can I? I often have difficulty deciding which ones are my all-time faves but for this contest I picked 5 that I always include in my top 10. Guess which are my "All-Time Fave" shows. 1 point for each correct show. Those who get all 5 will get some bonus points: Star Trek, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Star Trek: Voyager, Star Trek: Enterprise, Star Trek: The Animated Series, Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, Primeval, Buck Rogers in the 25th Century, Planet of the Apes, Return to The Planet of The Apes (animated series), NCIS, NCIS: LA, NCIS: New Orleans, JAG, When Things Were Rotten, Mork and Mindy, Happy Days, Doctor Who, Blakes 7, Torchwood, The Sarah Jane Adventures, Warehouse 13, Wizards and Warriors, Gilligan's Island, Agents of SHIELD, The Amazing Spider-Man, The A-Team, V, Voyagers, Quantum Leap, The Incredible Hulk, All in the Family, The Facts of Life, Diff'rent Strokes, The Partridge Family, Eight is Enough, Stargate SG1, Stargate Atlantis, Stargate Universe, Max Headroom, CSI, CSI: NY, CSI: Miami, Eureka, Land of the Lost (original 1970s version), The Man From UNCLE, UFO, Charlies Angels, Xena: Warrior Princess, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys, How I Met Your Mother, Family Guy, Homefront, Welcome Back Kotter, SWAT, The Odd Couple, ALF, The Big Bang Theory, Babylon 5, The Fantastic Journey, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, Monty Python's Flying Circus, Campion, The Black Adder, Mr. Bean, Faulty Towers, Hawaii Five-O, Emergency, St. Elsewhere, Magnum P.I., Taxi, Continuum, The Blacklist, Highlander, Under The Dome, The Muppet Show, Charmed.

5th Blogiversary Contest!

Hey how did this happen? Today Marks the 5th Blogiversary of this Blog. Yay Me! In honor of this milestone I think I should have a contest. So I'll borrow a "Play At The Plate" from Brian's playbook. So this contest will require a little work to win on your part and on mine (I have to remember how I'm scoring the dang thing and for what). I know I usually don't ask for much but in this case it is the concept not me. I hope I haven't gotten in over my head on this thing.

Beginning with this post until the end of the contest at 4 PM (Eastern) on Friday the 24th, you will get one entry point for commenting on any post I've written on this blog. Only one comment per post will get points and try to make the comment relevant to the post subject. If you have previously commented on a post you can make a new comment, but only the new one will count toward the contest. The person who gets the most points, from comments, primping, following etc.. wins. Simple at least I hope so.

Since it is my 5th Blogiversary I will randomly pick 4 runner-ups who will receive cards from their favorite teams, and maybe some bonus stuff.

How to Enter and gain points:
  • The first part and first point is easy just comment on this post for your entry and first point. If you don't comment on this post you will not be entered in the contest. It will be easier for me to keep track of people who entered that way.
  • Become a follower. You will get one point for becoming a follower if you aren't already. If you are already a follower then you will get two points since you were already following. Loyalty sometimes pays off in the blogiverse.
  • PIMP this contest on your blog and you get 5 bonus points. Make sure you include the link to your pimp I will check them out. No link = no points. Your link can be a second comment to this post, it doesn't get extra comments points, just the Pimpage Points.
  • Send me some cards from my wants or needs lists (here and on Zistle) especially 1965 Topps Baseball to help with my "Strive for '65" goal. You can also send cards that you think I might be interested in I do also collect some Non-Sport stuff. Number of points TBD. 1965 Topps Baseball cards will score more points. To qualify for contest points a list of cards being sent needs to be sent to me before the deadline on the 24th. Try to get the cards sent to me sometime before the end of the year.
Sometime later I will make a Bonus Post for an opportunity or two for even more points.
The Prize(s):
  • An unopened box of something. possibly several boxes
  • A hanging rack-pack of 1989 Bowman Baseball - 38 count

In addition to that stuff I will try to cater the prize package to include cards of at least one of your favorite teams from the Top four American Sports (Baseball, Football, Hockey, Basketball).

Good Luck and let the contest comment cascade commence.

Oh it doesn't matter where you live. I can ship outside the US if need be. It will cost me more and take a little longer but it is possible just don't expect to get it before the Winter Holidays. Winners in the US I can include package tracking info.
