Hey folks: I'm still working on the Mug this morning, but while you're waiting I wanted to pass along this opportunity to win some cool stuff via Holiday Inn. Holiday Inn is the Official Road Trip Partner of Major League Baseball. - KL
During the All Star Game tonight, Holiday Inn will be sponsoring the "Ultimate Baseball Road Trip" contest. The winner will receive two tickets to the major league game of their choice, airfare and Holiday Inn accommodations. You could go anywhere: You could follow the Brewers to St. Louis or Cincinnati for a critical playoff chase game. You could visit a park you've never seen before. You could try to be the only fan in attendance when the Marlins and Nationals play in Miami on Monday, September 26. The possibilities are endless.
Entering is pretty easy, too. All you have to do is predict which All Star team ("AL" or "NL") will have more hits tonight, and text that prediction to "88222." I don't think you even have to wait for tonight's game - I'm pretty sure you can do it now.
In addition, Holiday Inn has given me a $75 Dick's Sporting Goods gift card to give away, and I'm going to pass it to one lucky commenter on this post. To enter, all you have to do is tell me where you'd go if you won the Ultimate Road Trip contest. Entries will remain open until 10 am tomorrow, and I'll select a winner from the comments at random at that point.
Thanks to Holiday Inn for making this possible, and good luck!
Full disclosure: Holiday Inn is also giving me a gift card for writing this post. - KL
