Blog contest: Win free aquarium tickets and a hotel stay in Baltimore next weekend

Posted by: Peter Abraham - Posted in Misc on Aug 15, 2008 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

That took 120 seconds. We have a winner! Please, no more entries.

atlanticbottlenosedolphin.jpgOur friends at the National Aquarium in Baltimore know that a lot of Yankee fans attend the games in Baltimore. If you’re headed down for the series next weekend, we have a great prize for you.

Be the first person to answer two trivia questions correctly and you’ll win a family four-pack of tickets to the Aquarium and a free one-night stay at one of the Harbor Magic Hotels

To win, you must be the first person to e-mail me the correct answer. There is no second prize. The winner will deal directly with the Aquarium from there.

Question 1: In July, this blog had a quote from the Executive Director of the American Mustache Institute regarding Jason Giambi’s All-Star campaign. Who is that and what day did the post run?

Question 2: Where is the Giant Pacific Octopus located at the Aquarium?

The National Aquarium in Baltimore (501 East Pratt Street, Baltimore, Maryland, 21202) was rated #1 for all Baltimore things to do and is a favorite attraction among visitors to the area. Home to over 16,000 animals, the Aquarium features habitats from around the world including Animal Planet Australia: Wild Extremes, an exciting dolphin show and a new 4-D Immersion Theater. The Aquarium’s location in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor, which is in walking distance to the stadium, makes it easy to plan a visit before or after a game.

Harbor Magic Hotels consist of three unique boutique hotels located in and around Baltimore’s famous Inner Harbor. Each is delightfully different, yet all three are centered on delivering exceptional personalized visits that let you experience Baltimore as few others can. Call 866-583-4162.

Here are the official rules.

  2. saucY August 15th, 2008 at 3:29 pm

    awesome. wish i could enter, but I already have plans that weekend that can’t be broken.

  3. Rob Gee August 15th, 2008 at 3:29 pm

    The Aquarium is great. Well worth the trip before the ballgame.

  4. Keith August 15th, 2008 at 3:30 pm

    longest post ever….!

  5. mel August 15th, 2008 at 3:31 pm

    Gosh. I would try, but by the time I get through the rules and terms 10 people would’ve beat me.

  6. pat August 15th, 2008 at 3:32 pm

    I can’t go but I’ll help someone else

    The ‘stache guys name is aaron perlut and the post should probably be the first day of the Rangers series.

  7. Rebecca--Optimist Prime August 15th, 2008 at 3:33 pm

    I’d try but I have grad school orientation that weekend!

    And yeah, that sounds way too intimidating.

  8. S.A.-Can the Yanks win some games? Starting today? This offense is still offensive. August 15th, 2008 at 3:33 pm

    Holy long post batman

  9. pat August 15th, 2008 at 3:33 pm

    Oops I’m wrong the guys name is aaron perlut but the Ranger series post would have been when he shaved not the all star bid.

  10. Kevin August 15th, 2008 at 3:34 pm

    I emailed my answers.

    1. Aaron Perlut – July 7 – http://yankees.lhblogs.com/200.....beautiful/

    2. Giant Pacific Octopus is located in Adaptation Gallery, Level Three

  11. LA August 15th, 2008 at 3:35 pm

    Just entered the contest and e-mailed the answers, hope I’m first!

  12. fred from jersey August 15th, 2008 at 3:39 pm

    youre having a question contest? you have heard of the internet havent you? google?

  13. Rob Andrews August 15th, 2008 at 3:41 pm

    Melky Rocks! keep him in the majors best hitter on team. Bat him 3rd. Richie Sexson should try batting lefty that way he could hit righties! I heard chase wright is hitting well in single a call him up for a-rod

  14. mel August 15th, 2008 at 3:44 pm

    Sorry to keep picking at the scab, but the more I think about it, the more I think that the leak yesterday was a negotiating tactic.

    Of course school is important, I’d be the first to say that. But I don’t think that Cole is going to UCLA to study TIM or sociology or economics or whatever. His goal in life is to be a professional ball player. The sooner you get in the system the sooner you can make the majors.

    Especially with the Yankees who are putting a premium on good young pitchers. There’s an excellent chance that you can be on the fast track like Joba, Hughes, or Kennedy if you work and have the goods.

    Just as in football, baseball teams want a return on their investment. Especially with bonuses reaching the $5M+ range. They want that ROI sooner rather than later.

  15. Rocco August 15th, 2008 at 3:44 pm

    See you guys in Baltimore (I live there). I’ll be at all 3 games then come say hi at Pickles afterwords :)

  16. Jimmy27 August 15th, 2008 at 3:47 pm

    Rocco
    where is Pickles?
    Is there any other inside info you can give me – my first time in charm city. Where are the best crabcakes?
    Thanks!

  17. Rocco August 15th, 2008 at 3:50 pm

    Pickles is across the st from the staduim on the left field side. You cant miss it. They close off the street and let you drink outside before and after the games.

    Federal Hill is fun. Lots of laid back bars good food etc.

    The Harbor is touristy but fun to go to if you’ve never been here.

  18. Robbie Cano August 15th, 2008 at 3:53 pm

    I’d enter this contest but I don’t think It would look cool

  19. Jimmy27 August 15th, 2008 at 3:54 pm

    Thanks Rocco – what about Fells Pt.?

  20. Skippy August 15th, 2008 at 3:54 pm

    I’m so sorry I missed this! I’ve never been to Camden Yards. I haven’t even been to a game at all this season, and it’s looking less and less likely. Sigh.

  21. saucY August 15th, 2008 at 4:13 pm

    the aquarium is to the oriole’s as the r&rhof is to the indians…

  22. marc centrella November 29th, 2008 at 3:33 pm

    i want to win these tickets because I have a gift tio give to my family and I think that your aquarium is really great and you have good animals and I want to go there again and again becausse are very beautiful.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

  34. Richard Hormell August 10th, 2014 at 2:38 am

    The very next time I read a blog, I hope that it won’t disappoint me just as much as this particular one. I mean, I know it was my choice to read through, however I actually believed you would probably have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something that you could fix if you weren’t too busy looking for attention.

  40. have a peek here August 10th, 2014 at 10:34 am

    Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

    I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)
