Triumph Books and Jonathan Gatehouse recently put out a book called "The Instigator: How Gary Bettman Remade the NHL and Changed the Game Forever." I haven't finished it but it's an interesting book. The important thing is that they sent us a couple copies and you can win one!
It'll take some creativity, though. As there are 3 books, I figured we would have three concurrent contests. Because I like being difficult.
So here are the contests:
- Best picture of your favorite hockey moment: audience choice - Yep, exactly as it sounds. If you don't have paint or photoshop, get your sketchpad out. Arrange some bubble hockey dudes or get some friends in on it.
- Best poem about your favorite hockey moment: audience choice - this can be any form of poetry from the formulaic haiku to a slam to iambic pentameter or anything in between or beyond. You can write it or tape yourself performing it or whatever. Songs count.
- Wildcard about your favorite hockey moment: Staff choice - this is if I (or one of the other writers) really liked a piece and nobody else did.
All entries must be submitted by, I dunno, let's say...end of next week. Then finalists in the first two categories will be judged by SBNation poll and the three winners announced soon after.
To Submit: email it to me (my email address is in my profile) with CHOWDER CONTEST in the title, thanks.
UPDATE: Please only submit your own creations. If Brian Babineau is reading this, though, by all means send me something. Thanks!
