Recent Winnings

It’s been a good long while since I’ve won anything. One of my best friends won front row tickets to a Tom Petty concert the other day, and since then I’ve been scratching my noggin trying to recall my last reward for luck.

Now, I did win a contest on a music site… but as of yet, I haven’t received any prize for this luck. I’m sure it’s forthcoming. Before that, the only thing I can recall is winning a free bowling party for up to 10 people at a suburban bowling alley. I simply dropped my business card in the fishbowl – you know the drill – and a week later, boom, free bowling and pizza.

How’s your luck been lately?

In the last year, I've won two contests on two different DVD review sites, netting me a total of seven free DVDs. Other than those, I don't think I've won any contests in recent memory.

Oh -- I did the business card thing and won 20 free tickets to the Improv last year (or was it the year before?), but I'm pretty sure about 85% of the people that drop a card in win that.

Nothing recently - but my mom's house in Altanta has some kind of direct connection to the radio stations. When I was living at home I could win tickets from the local stations almost on command. I won a little cash at blackjack in Vegas earlier this year - but I like to think that was skill!

Last year about this time, I won a weekend trip for 2 to New York to see the George Carlin HBO special. Then earlier this summer, the wife-to-be won us a trip to Memphis to see the Tyson-Lewis fight.

And I won a 6-pack in college, but it was Coors, so that doesn't really count.



What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
