Ramblings Giveaway

As a special thank you to everyone who visited Sean’s Ramblings during the Best Pittsburgh Sports Blog Tournament and my regular readers who have waited patiently for me to write something besides posts about the Best Pittsburgh Sports Blog Tournament, I am going to reward you. Well, at least one of you. OK, one of you. All Children’s has some really nice kids bedding. I especially like the Pittsburgh Steelers bedding series.

Sadly, I’m not giving away bedding as I don’t think I have many seven year-old readers. (Plus, I really want the bedding for myself, but I’m guessing that it is not socially appropriate to have this type of bedding as an adult.) Instead, in honor of the success of the Pittsburgh Pirates blogs in the tournament, you can win either this Pittsburgh Pirates table lamp

or this comfortable bean bag chair.

To win your choice of the lamp or chair, simply leave a comment below. I’ll even give you a topic. The opening and closing ceremonies of the Vancouver Olympics featured some of the most famous and accomplished Canadians. Who do you want or expect to see during the London 2012 Olympics? What British musicians will play the role of Neil Young, Nelly Furtado, Bryan Adams and Nickelback?

Please enter your comment by Friday, March 5th at 10:00 PM Eastern time. I'll choose the winner via Please make sure there is a way for me to contact you in case you win.

Thanks to the generous folks at All Children’s for offering this terrific giveaway!

I would like to see Michael Phelps show up to the pool high on various drugs, and recreate the "I am a Golden God!" scene from Almost Famous on the high dive.

Beanbag chair!!

oh that beanbag chair would be great. I'd love to see Shawn Johnson in the olympics again. No clue about artists though...that's hard!

I loved watching the Olympics and I'd love to win that bean bag!
I think Sir Paul McCartney will play a big role somewhere in the opening or closing ceremonies.

I'd like to see Sting and the Police in charge of the music and musicians. I'm not sure what to expect in London. I would hope they'd try to outdo Vancouver, perhaps even bring their royalty into the mix!

Dawn said...

I would like to see Amy Winehouse perform but she has so many problems I doubt they could depend on her to even show up.

Susan said...

oh, I look forward to great athletes, great sportsmanship and a reunion of the Police!

the giant inflatable beaver from the closing ceremony needs to be at every future Olympics.

you know how to reach me when i win.

Amanda S. said...

Hmmm...I'm thinking Elton Johh, Paul McCartney...maybe Susan Boyle.

Would love the beanbag chair! Email is in my profile. :)

I am digging the beanbag chair. I think the London Olympics ceremonies should include the Rolling Stones, Paul McCartney, and Elton John.

ilyssa said...

cstironkat said...

I would like to see Elton John at the London Olympics. I'm sure Michael Phelps will be there.
I like the bean bag chair. Thank you.

Rob said...

Darn, thought I would be the only one to go with Susan Boyle.

Maybe a reading of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies?

Brad said...
