You know the drill, folks. Vote, and we’ll listen to you. I think I know what’s going to win though.
We’ve gotten tons and tons of comments and email about this whole Johan Santana situation. Some were for the deal and some weren’t, but the sheer volume of input from you guys (which we love getting and truly appreciate, by the way) makes it difficult to get a sense of how Yankee Universe really feels about this mess. So take a second and vote in the poll below, and as always, feel free to add your two cents in the comments.
It’s the moment you’ve all been waiting for: Time to announce the winners of the fan-on-the-field caption contest. So without further ado:
The winner with 48 votes is Mike R.: Just one more unfunny moment in the career of Dane Cook
In second place with 32 votes is Yankee Fan in Chicago: I don’t have no friggin laptops!
In third place with 29 votes is usty: “Oh no, grass stains on my new khakis! Mom’s gonna kill me!!”
Those three folks win the Yankees World Series DVD collection. Thanks to all who participated.
Ok, folks. Let’s try that again. This time with more answer choices. We screwed up last time. So we’ll do it right this time.
We’re going all-out here. We’ve selected 19 captions for you to vote on and we’ll keep this one open until Sunday night at 11:59 p.m. or until the Yankees move into first place, whichever comes first. As an added incentive, the top three winners who share a valid mailing address with us will all receive the Yankees World Series DVD box set. Again, you can only vote once per IP address per day.
Here we go, folks. After nearly 80 entries for captions, we’ve narrowed down the selection to our top five.
Your job now is to vote. The winner – or person with the most votes who sends us an address – gets to take home a pretty nifty DVD set. The photo and the poll follow. You can only vote once per IP address per day. The polls close at 2:10 p.m. Eastern time on Friday, September 21, 2007. Please, no hanging chads.
Vote in the Fan-on-the-Field Photo Caption Contest
EDIT: We hear your complaints, and we’re going to re-tool the poll. It will launch later tonight. We screwed that one up. Our bad.
Our Fan -on-the-Field caption contest is going strong. I wanted to up the ante a little bit. I’m going to offer a prize. The winner gets the New York Yankees Vintage World Series Film DVD Set.
Here’s how it works: Right now, the contest will remain open for submissions until 11:59 p.m. ET tonight, Tuesday, September 18. At that point, we’ll pick our five favorites that were not submitted by someone who writes or is related to someone who writes for River Ave. Blues. Tomorrow afternoon, we’ll post a poll thread that will remain open for 48 hours. The winner after those 48 hours will be awarded the DVD set.
So get send submissions in to to the comments on this post. Time’s a-wastin’.
