(That is the worst blog post title ever, and it probably just broke every single SEO Google rule but I’M A REBEL, Y’ALL.)
It’s been a rough season for this college football fan. Auburn and I, we have our ups and downs, but I’ll always be a fan. And being a southerner, my loyalty to the SEC trumps even my disdain for Alabama. IT EVEN TRUMPS REALITY. Which means I’ll be pulling for the Tide tonight. (Imagine I just said that and then immediately threw up like Gollum.)
Unfortunately, many of my good friends are Notre Dame fans. So tonight is going to be an extra fun game to watch. AND I’M ABOUT TO MAKE IT FUNNER!
My good friend Chad Gibbs wrote a hilarious and insightful book called Love Thy Rival. I made the mistake of reading it while rocking my daughter to sleep one night and almost passed out trying to hold in my laughter. It’s good, y’all.
And I have TWO autographed copies to give away.
The thing about Chad is, he didn’t just write a book and then sell it to you. He’s also raising money to build a women’s and children’s health clinic in Haiti through Samaritan’s Purse. You can click any of the fancy blue letters in this paragraph to get more information on this worthy cause. So far, sports fans have raised a little over 60% of the total $40,000 goal, and this is the last month to get it done.
Anyway, back to the TWO FREE AUTOGRAPHED COPIES (I asked Chad to write something absolutely, positively ridiculous and he delivered) that I am dying to give away.
IN THE COMMENTS: Post your prediction of the final score of tonight’s game (for example, my prediction is 17-9, Bama, which is probably a terrible prediction, but no matter) and whoever is the closest will win one of the copies. The second copy will go to a randomly drawn winner. One entry for your comment/prediction and extra entries for any amount you donate to Samaritan’s Purse. If you donate $10, you get 10 extra entries. MATH IS FUN!
(PSST. Here is the breakdown of previous fans’ giving. I do not see Notre Dame on this list.)
UPDATE: No one came close to predicting the MAJOR BLOWOUT Alabama was going to give Notre Dame, so I drew two random winners via random.org. Chad Jones & Dan McM. are our winners! I’ll be emailing you for your addresses!
