I have decided to hold my first contest in celebration of the progress this blog and to recognize those that have been following and commenting on it. I have posted 30 posts since Opening Day (4/6), not quite one per day but close enough for me based on all the traveling I have been doing for work. I expect the travel to slow down some and hopefully I will hit a nice stride and start a couple new regular features. My 30 posts have generated 42 followers (more than I ever expected) and closing in on 900 page views. Let's see if I can increase those with a contest.
Pretty simple contest. If you haven't figured it out by now, I am a huge Giants fan. We are struggling this year with some sub par play by a couple of key people (Lincecum and Crawford - although I didn't expect much from Crawford) and more damaging some key injuries (Wilson, Sanchez and Sandoval). So to lift my spirits, I need some Giants love - not too over the top but some Giants love.
To qualify for the contest, you need to be a follower of my blog - don't worry you still have time. Other than that, you need to leave a comment on this post telling me who your favorite Giant is, past or present, and why. If you pimp my contest in your blog and share a link, I will give you two entries into the contest. I will random the entries on random.org 6 times (number of Giants' championships in their history) and winner will receive these vintage 1970's HOF cards.
I will also toss in a couple other HOF cards of a newer vintage - a Rickey Henderson GU and a Manufactured Hat Logo of one time Giant Orlando Cepeda.
Good luck and thanks for you interest in this blog!
