From the department of “Shameless Self-Promotion”, comes a few tidbits of news regarding TailgatingIdeas.com.
Right off the bat we would like to let you know that TailgatingIdeas.com has partnered again with Central California radio station KZOZ and the morning team of “Jeff and Jeremy” to offer the Ultimate Tailgating Prize Pack in 2010. Last year’s promotion was a part of the Jeff and Jeremy’s Pigskin Picks contest and the overall winner walked home with some pretty sweet prizes including a BoomCooler, Tailgate Partymate, Tailgator Sunshade, Pub Washers, Sholf, Z-Bench, Taligate Couch among other stuff. A total of 18 to 20 pieces of tailgating gear was included in last year’s prize package.
This year, Pigskin Picks is back and the ultimate tailgating prize package is again the grand prize. But instead of the stuff we gave away last year, this year’s prize package will include cool stuff not included last year. The first item to be added to the prize pool was a Margaritaville Tailgating Grill customized to the winner’s color scheme and preference. You don’t have to live in Central/Coastal California to play PigSkin Picks. If you win, you do have to go there to pick up your stuff. Make sure to listen either on the radio or on the net for the next prize to be added to the prize pool.
Staying with the radio theme, for those living in Central Iowa, you can hear an interview with me on Lazer 103.3 FM at 7:50 AM on September 2, 2010. I’ll be coming on the Moose in the Morning Show and dolling out tailgating tips and ideas to kick off another season of college football. Lazer 103 is located in Des Moines and both Ames and Iowa City can pull in the signal. You know there will be some Iowa Hawkeye and Iowa State Cyclone tailgaters tuning in.
And lastly, we are honored to report that Catherine Sebring, the driving force behind queenofsports.com, included TailgatingIdeas.com in The Queen of Sports Top 10 Sports Blogs list. Sebring was a asked by Blogs.com to submit her Top 10 list of the best sports blogs on the internet. TailgatingIdeas.com was named as one of them. It is quite an honor to be on the list for two reasons. 1) Catherine Sebring knows her sports and has a great blog herself and 2) mentioned TailgatingIdeas.com in the same list as other sports blog juggernauts like Deadspin, The Big Lead and Sports Biz with Darren Rovell. Quite some lofty company to be mentioned in the same list.
So to Catherine Sebring, we say thank you and we hope you keep reading and we hope to not disappoint.
