Braggin' Rights Night Contest
I think this is the sixth year we've done this: the Cardinals give me four tickets and four giveaways for Illini Night, and we hold a contest to see who wins 'em. This year, it's not just Illini Night, it's Braggin' Rights night. Orange and Blue vs. Black and Gold.
The Illini/Cardinals jersey they're giving away? That's it right up there. If you win the contest, you get four of those jerseys plus four tickets to the game. Hmmm... maybe I should give out some of the details here.
The Game: Cards vs. Phillies, 7:15 pm, Friday, May 18th, Busch Stadium
The Event: Braggin' Rights Night. They're combining Illini Night and Mizzou Night this year. Before the game will be similar to the last few years - band, cheerleaders, players signing autographs, and on the mound for this year's first pitch: Coach Underwood. Hopefully he gets to stand on the mound with Cuonzo wearing a shirt that says "EJ is ours" (perhaps a recruiting violation).
What You Receive If You Win: 4 tickets (they've typically been lower deck near the foul pole) and 4 of the jerseys above.
The IlliniBoard Contest: Send me your best Braggin' Rights story. It will probably be basketball related, but if it's football related, I'll accept that too. The best story (hopefully) about beating Mizzou and your celebration with friends and family wins the tickets.
I'll announce the winner on Thursday morning. So between now and then, email me at email@example.com and give me your story.
And if you don't win? You can still go (duh). Ticket packages for Braggin' Rights Night are available here. Don't let Miznoz have more fans there. Please. I'm begging you.
That's it. Get to writin'.
