Because everyone knows the BN community is so awesome, I have been given the opportunity to hook you guys up with a sweet DVD set: “The Essential Games of the Chicago Cubs” by A&E. Five of you are going to win a set, which includes the following games:

  • HALL OF FAME SHOWCASE vs. PHI, July 12, 1969: Hall of Famers Ernie Banks, Billy Williams, Ron Santo, and Ferguson Jenkins headline a win over Philadelphia.
  • SANDBERG’S COMEBACK SHOCKER vs. STL, June 23, 1984: Ryne Sandberg’s monster game shocks Cardinals.
  • NL WILD CARD TIEBREAKER vs. SF, September 28, 1998: Cubs prevail over the San Francisco Giants in a one-game, winner-take-all Wild Card tiebreaker.
  • NL CENTRAL DIVISION CLINCHER vs. STL, September 20, 2008: Wrigley Field erupts as Cubs clinch a spot in the postseason for the second consecutive season.


It’s a great set to have on your shelf, and I’ll confess that I speak from personal experience – because they hooked me up with a set, too. Personal favorite? As great as the Sandberg Game was, that 1998 one-game playoff (Gary Gaetti!) sticks with me as probably the most fun I ever had watching a singular Cubs game.

But enough about my favorite – let’s get you a set of your own. There are three ways to enter to win, and you can try your hand at all three of them (but you can only win once, you greedy goon). The contest runs from now until 5pm CT on Friday, September 14. Get your entries in!

So, here’s how you enter yourself to win: (1) “Like” BN on Facebook, find this post on the BN Facebook Timeline, and drop in a comment about your favorite Cubs game of all time; (2) Follow BN on Twitter, and retweet the tweet about this content (or any subsequent tweet about this contest); (3) drop a comment on this post, talking about your favorite Cubs game of all time.



Easy enough. The winners will be chosen at random (two each from Facebook and Twitter, and one from the comments), and you just need to make sure I’m able to contact you when the contest is over so I can get your address information.

I make no representations or warranties with this contest – I’m just trying to give some nice folks a sweet DVD set. The prizes are courtesy of A&E Networks Home Entertainment/MLB Productions.


Keep Reading BN ...
