I have a couple Cubs/Astros bleacher tickets to next Wednesday’s game (August 15 at 1:20 CT), but, unfortunately, I won’t be able to use them. Rather than sell them, I’d like to give them to one of you. Who wouldn’t want to see a battle to the bottom?

Instead, here’s how I’m going to do it. See that there forlorn picture of Dale Sveum? It’s begging for a caption.

So, to win the tickets, this is all you have to do: head over to the BN Facebook page, “like” it, and drop a comment on this picture on the wall offering your caption. The comment with the most thumbs ups by Friday, August 10 at 2pm CT wins the tickets. It’s kind of like a democratic way of settling which caption is the best. (Or, which commenter has the most friends they can cajole into a thumbs up).

I’ll leave the tickets for you at will call, but make sure you respond to my Facebook message promptly if you’re the winner.

Because of the mechanics of this contest, you’ve got to be on Facebook to enter and win (my apologies). You can still offer your caption in the comments for fun and posterity, but you won’t be entered to win.

    After recent callup Brooks Raley’s shellacking, manager Dale Sveum wonders, “Who can I call up next?”

    I don’t live in Chicago, so I’m not trying to win the tix unless airfare is included.
