It's a major award! I won it!

Fra-gi-le. It must be Italian!

It's a baseball, you nincompoop! It's a major award. I won it!

Ok, so I didn't win a sexy leg lamp that will light up my neighborhood this holiday season. However, a few weeks back, MLB Fan Cave had one of those Twitter giveaways where all you had to do was RT to be entered to win something. I usually participate when I see such an offering, as a RT takes about one second. I never expect to win.

Then, one day, I receive a DM from MLB Fan Cave saying I had one a Josh Donaldson autographed baseball! Sweet! A few days later, it showed up at my door.
I have no connection to Donaldson, other than knowing he has become a hell of a player and his WAR has been really high the past couple of years. Still, it was free, so I am very thankful that I am such a good retweeter that I won.

Have you ever won a Twitter contest? If so, share in the comments! I'd love to hear about it.


  1. No Twitter win. Back when Starting Lineup figures were popular I won an internet contest which netted me a Rickey Williams rookie figure. That was a long time ago.

    Sweet Donaldson by the way. He is a WAR machine.

  2. yes and yes.

  3. Congrats! Always cool when somebody from the blogosphere wins one of those. I've won blog contests, but have come up dry in all my Twitter entries so far.

  4. Congratulations on your prize. I've won a few small Twitter contests over the years - an autographed CD booklet from a band I like, some Magic the Gathering cards from an NYC comic shop, a couple of different ones for autographed baseball cards - it's always a nice surprise when it works out.

  5. Congrats! I won an autographed bat from Matt Davidson on Twitter.

  6. I won an autographed hat from Brian Dozier once

  7. おお、おめでとうございます。
    Fan Caveのcontestは全部インチキだと言う噂を聞きましてここしばらく全然参加していなかったのですが本当にprizeを送り出すのですね。

    1. Kenny, I might need a translation on this one!
