Wednesday Weekly Contest - Winners and New Contest
Well look at that, the Wednesday contest is getting posted on Thursday - oops. It has been a little busy around the Arpsmith household. Work has been hectic and (now that I think about it, I don't think I have shared this on the blog) we are less than a month out from having baby #3 enter our family, my wife is due on December 3rd. So please forgive any sporadic posting.
Last week's contest focused on our favorite second basemen. The top spot was not a surprise to me with the combination of Dodgers bloggers and the impact this man made, not only to the sports world but to our entire society. Earning 5 votes as the bloggosphere's favorite second basemen is Jackie Robinson:
Bob Lemke creation. I bought several of his Giants and USC Trojan football cards a year or two back.
There was a tie for second place with 4 votes each for Ryne Sandberg and Jeff Kent:
So let's get to the all important results. First up is our list of 25 entries:
Plaschke, Thy Sweater Is Argyle fame. Interestingly enough, his list of top 2B included 2 of the 3 top vote getters. Greg, send me your selection and I will get it out to you soon.
Hopefully you have made it this far because in addition to the results, this post will also be the launching of this week's contest.
This is a topic many have shared in their blogs in the past but I thought it would be interesting to see everyone's responses grouped together in one place. Answer these 2 questions:
1. What year did you start collecting?
2. What is your favorite set of all time and why?
Feel free to link to a blog post if you have covered this already. I will share my answers in the results post.
Once again I will random the list 3 times to determine a winner. Thanks for playing!
