Last chance to get those entries in.
I'm giving away a copy of the new A&E 6-DVD set: The new York Mets: Essential Games of Shea Stadium.
I've been watching the films in pieces with my kids and they are a real trip. We wrote about the DVDs a few weeks back. There are six complete games here, plus lots of great bonus stuff, including the endings to the 1969 World Series, Shea division clinchers, an interview with Bill Shea and plenty more.
And you can have it for free.
I am going to do a random drawing on Sunday, July 13. Very simple rules to enter:
1) Write a short note (at least 50 words) describing either your favorite memory of Shea Stadium OR something you will miss about Shea Stadium.
2) Send your note to Kingman AT Blogsbyfans.com.
Limit two entries per person (one entry on each topic).
I reserve the right to publish your entry on Loge13.com, unless you request that I not publish your entry on Loge13.com.
I will draw a winning name from the list of entries.
Of course, doing a random drawing doesn't ensure that the best written, most touching entry will win. Therefore there will also be a special "Mayor's Trophy" prize, awarded by an unbiased board of non-Mets fans that I will assemble. They will review each entry and select what they feel is the best written piece of the non-winning bunch.
The Mayor's Trophy prize: a copy of the DVD "New York Mets Vintage World Series Films.", another great collection from A&E.
So there you have it: two chances to win some fantastic New York Mets flicks. You have until noon EST Sunday to enter. Good luck!
