Like she said, and the (randomly selected) winners from the blog launch competition are …
Chris (aka Abba)
Tim (2nd Tim commenter)
Congrats Chris and Tim! I'll be emailing you both to get your addresses so I can send you your pint glasses. Enjoy!
Thanks to everyone who entered. You all had some fantastic quotes, a few of which I need to highlight as being particularly good. Here are my top 3 favorites in no particular order:
- “Almost all of our beer knowledge comes from Budweiser, Miller and Coors; it's as if all we knew about food comes from McDonalds.” By Jim Koch (submitted by Jay P).
- “Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn’t drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, “It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver.” By Jack Handy (submitted by Brady).
- “and the mother penguins arrive after their tremendous trek through the ice and snow with the fish for their babies…” By Morgan Freeman in March of the Penguins.
“…and beer for the daddy?” – Sean's 3-year old son (submitted by Sean Nordquist).
Honorable mention goes to Chris for his Hangover reference and being unique – as always : >)
So it's the end of the contest but only the beginning for the blog. And I gotta say, there are great things coming so stay tuned.
p.s. A HUGE thank you to all the people that helped promote this launch through tweeting, emailing friends, and commenting. There would have been crickets chipping in here if it wasn't for you guys. You rock.
