So here’s a fun little contest for your open thread tonight. The Cooperstown Cookie Company has announced a sweepstakes that will run through April 16. The prize? A free two-night trip to Cooperstown for the winner and a companion. Also included is a membership to the Hall of Fame, meals and some non-baseball- and baseball-related prizes from some of the upstate town’s local merchants.
Entering is easy. Just head on over to this page and take a short survey. More info is available here, and the hat tip for this one goes to David Pinto at Baseball Musings. He took a break from his Sisyphean and alphabetical project of posting a short piece on every single baseball player in the Majors Leagues. For more on Cooperstown and the Hall, check out the photos from Mike’s recent visit.
In local action tonight, the Senators are visiting the Rangers at the Garden, and the Devils are facing off against the Coyotes at 9 p.m. MTV is airing two episodes of the critically-acclaimed Jersey Shore this evening, and Conan should be in fine form again come 11:35 p.m. Be good to each other.
