Brett has graciously allowed me to run a holiday contest here on BN in connection with promoting my book. (and he came up with the cool idea).  I came to Brett stating  that I wanted to give a free copy of the 1st Edition of my book(Beyond Bartman Curses & Goats: 104 Reasons Why Its Been 104 Years) for 12 straight days.

 

Brett suggested taking submissions every day for our own 12 days of Christmas( I can't decide if I want to call it Cubsmas or Goatsmas...Goats are in the title of my book, and it would honor a certain Goat from Michigan)...we will take suggestions here on the message board, and the winner will be sent a free copy of the 1st edition of the book(then if that winner wants to buy a copy of the second edition or anything such as that...we can work that out as well)...so each day a suggedtion, each day a winner...(two theriots?)...all leading up to Day 12!

 

So Monday being day 1, I already have come up with the first one to get us rolling, and then we will take suggestions for Day 2, and the winner will be announced Tuesday morning...so here is what I am starting with...

 

 

ON THE FIRST DAY OF CUBSMAS MY TRUE LOVE GAVE TO ME...

 

 

A SMARDZIJA AND A DEREK LEE...

 

 

 

SO LET'S HEAR SOME SUGGESTIONS FOR DAY 2! I HAVE SOME BOOKS TO GIVE AWAY...

 

AND DON'T FORGET, IF YOU ARE NOT DONE SHOPPING, YOU CAN CONTACT ME AT BBCG105Reasons@yahoo.com ON HOW TO BUY EACH EDITION DIRECTLY

 

AND IF YOU ARE IN TO UNBRIDLED HILARITY, FOLLOW ME @BBCG105Reasons  on that Twitter thing

Unless you count his pitching stats then he is perfect!
