Contest Time! Right Here, Right Now!!!

Hi everyone, and welcome to Chipp 'n' Dale's first blog contest! Holla!

This will be a quasi-traditional style contest: comment on this post once for a point now, promote it on your blog or Facebook page (and link it in the comments) for an extra point, comment on this post once a day for one point each time. It will run for a week!

I will say I like posts that make me laugh, so feel free to do so. Make me laugh, that is. You don't have to post "first/second/25th entry," each time (though if you do, I won't hold it against you). Rather, if you try to guess or say inane things, that will be enough. Guess Evan Gattis's birth weight...I really don't care. Make me laugh. Thanks!

Prizes will be:

2 packs of 2013 Bowman,

Two of these for a first place winner!

2 packs of 2013 Topps,
Image of 2nd place prize stolen from A pack to be named...

And a mess of 2012 Topps Update inserts (for the third placer)!

Start now! Have fun! Promote me like I know you can!

Valete!

And for the record Evan Gattis' birth weight was similar to that of a baby polar bear. To say the least, his mother was never the same lady afterwards.

Richard Nebe Jr. said...

Birth weight, hell? I heard he was three days overdue cause he got lost and like any typical man, would not stop and ask for directions!!!

Did you hear about the fire at the circus? It was in-tents!

I should probably be disqualified...

I'm in! Thanks.

i'm in, thanks!

Superduperman99 said...

I'm in. Wow, I didn't see that you had a contest going. Did you see Gattis the other day when he broke his bat on his back swing over his shoulder.

When Evan Gattis was born even Chuck Norris felt a disturbance in the air.

Gattis Birth Certificate:

Baby Boy: 9 pounds, 6 ounces

Afterbirth: Asst. Catchers Gear -

Post #2


Two old men had been best friends for years, and they both live to their early 90's, when one of them suddenly falls deathly ill. His friend comes to visit him on his deathbed, and they're reminiscing about their long friendship, when the dying man's friend asks, "Listen, when you die, do me a favor. I want to know if there's baseball in heaven."

The dying man said, "We've been friends for years, this I'll do for you." And then he dies.

A couple days later, his surviving friend is sleeping when he hears his friend's voice. The voice says, "I've got some good news and some bad news. The good news is that there's baseball in heaven."

"What's the bad news?"

"You're pitching on Wednesday.

Entry 14.756431084, which was also, coincidentally, Gattis' gargantuan birth weight.

William Regenthal said...

I will post something on my blog later this evening.

The Blue Jays announced their starters for the 3-game series against the Orioles this weekend. Friday - R. A. Dickey; Saturday - Chein Ming Wang and Sunday - Josh Johnson. So, in order to beat the Blue Jays, the Orioles will have to beat: Dickey, Wang and Johnson...

I'm that dude! Yeah!

I can't help but think that a year from now, people are going to barely remember who this Gattis guy is. Maybe that's just me.

I don't approve of Rance Mulliniks being the name of a human.

The Lost Collector said...

Sometimes some crimes
Go slipping through the cracks
But these two
Gumshoes
Are picking up the slack
There's no case too big
No case too small
When you need help just call

CHORUS:
Ch-ch-ch-Chip 'N Dale's
Rescue Rangers
Ch-ch-ch-Chip 'N Dale
When there's danger
No, No, it never fails
Once they're involved
Somehow whatever's wrong gets solved

Fresh prints
Not since Watson and Mr. Holmes
Have two minds
So fine
Looked under every stone
When you need some help to save the day
They're never far away

CHORUS

Grey skies - it's trouble
Bad guys see double
When they're around
The chips are never down

SECOND CHORUS:
Ch-ch-ch-Chip 'N Dale's
Rescue Rangers
Ch-ch-ch-Chip 'N Dale
When there's danger
No, no, it never fails
They'll take the clues
And find the wheres and whys and whos

Grey skies - it's trouble
Bad guys see double
When they're around
The chips are never down

Post #4

A recent Scottish immigrant attends his first baseball game in his new country and after a base hit he hears the fans roaring run....run! The next batter connects heavily with the ball and the Scotsman stands up and roars with the crowd in his thick accent: "R-r-run ya bahstard, r-run will ya!" A third batter slams a hit and again the Scotsman, obviously pleased with his knowledge of the game, screams "R-r-run ya bahstard, r-r-run will ya!" The next batter held his swing at three and two and as the ump calls a walk the Scotsman stands up yelling "R-r-run ya bahstard, r-r-run!" All the surrounding fans giggle quietly and he sits down confused.

A friendly fan, sensing his embarrassment whisper, "He doesn't have to run, he's got four balls." After this explanation the Scotsman stands up in disbelief and
screams, "Walk with pr-r-ride man! Walk with pr-r-ride!!!!"

The second I pulled my first Tom Henke card I knew I could take him in a street fight. I think I was 9 years old.

Go Cardinals!

(I couldn't think of any other things to say about Evan Gattis)

Wilson said...

I second Superduperman99's emotion. Go Cardinals.

I promoted your blog on mine: http://foulbunt.blogspot.com

The late, great, Mike Flanagan was doing color commentary on a game in Toronto and some phenom pitcher was supposed to be throwing in the upper 90s, yet the Skydome radar gun was reading in the high 80s. Flanagan said something to the effect: "This pitcher throws high 90s, or high 80s, Canadian"

Coach Jones called the young lad in from center field during a Little League game for a conference.

"See here Larry," said the coach, "you know the principles of good sportsmanship that the Little League practices. You also know we don't tolerate temper tantrums, shouting at the umpire, or abusive language. Do I make myself clear?"

"Yes, sir," replied Larry.

"Well, then Larry," sighed Coach Jones, "would you please try to explain it to your mother?"

The Astros are so bad that even their own AAA team were able to beat them.

The posts are slowing down, everyone must be wilting in the heat.

#5 It was Christmas of '91. I turned to Brady Anderson and I said one word, "sideburns". The rest they say, is history.
