    What have you won in a contest, or raffle?

    After I won a CD six pack of new music, I began to think of other things that I had won during my 40 years here on Earth. Like I mentioned I won a CD six pack of new music which included Seether, the Offspring, Static X, Disturbed, and two others. Other things I have won that I can remember:

    Radio Station call in contests:
    Rush concert tickets
    ZZ Top concert tickets
    Black Crowes concert tickets
    Coleco PacMan game

    Fast Food:
    Two Tusken Raider mugs
    various food prizes

    Various other contest winnings:
    Obi Wan Kenobi mug (Star Wars fan club creativity contest 1980 or 81)
    $100 worth of Star Wars figures on Hasbro's online contest 2 yrs ago


    I'm sure I'll think of more that I didn't post. So what have you won during your lifetime?

    Re: What have you won in a contest, or raffle?

    Back in April I won a t-shirt in Hasbro's "Break the Emperor's Code" online game.

    Last spring I won the Diamond Select Toys Hellboy trivia contest. I won three Hellboy plush dolls and an autographed theatrical poster signed by Hellboy creator Mike Mignola, director Guillermo Del Toro, and actors Ron Perlman and Selma Blair.

    Hasbro/Kenner had an online trivia contest years ago that I won as well. The contest would be scheduled at odd times during the day and I finally was able to play early one morning before work. I won a B'omarr Monk figure, which was the main prize and was the only way to get that figure at that time. (The Monk was later a mail-away figure offer; then appeared in the SAGA Deluxe set).

    Oh, when I was a kid I won a Huffy bicycle from a grocery store's in-store contest. It was a great bike: black paint job, chain guard, racing placard with number mounted on the handlebars, and a banana seat. I was feeling sick though when we went to pick it up. I didn't want to leave the backseat of the car to get my picture taken with the bike in the store but they got me to do it. It's a gyp having the flu in summer. Such a waste.

    various crap, blah blah blah.

    but the prime thing i've won was a football autographed by ALL of the San Francisco 49's from the year they won the superbowl, i believe it was 89. I wonder how much $$ I could get for that
    "Woke up at 9.55am. Soon as I woke up, I looked at Suzanne and she looked at me. I said, 'Did I tell you about the immune system?' Suzanne starting laughing, I said, 'it's amazing.' She said, 'Not now.'"

    Re: What have you won in a contest, or raffle?

    Memories LOL, I won the game football of my home coming game that was signed by all the players and cheer leaders. Just so happens I broke my leg in that game.

    I recently won a Devil Reject shirt. Seems all other things I won were small promo crap that was said to be a prize, but was really just free crap to anyone that was there at the time.

    I also remember filling out a raffle ticket for a free month to Family Fitness. About 6 of my friends filled them out. A week later, I got a phone call saying I won, I was happy and crap and when I ran into my 6 friends they all had received the same call. All it was was a scam to get you in there to sign a contract. I was POed!

    99.999 % of the time nothing is free.

    Dont blame ya for being PO'ed at that Turbo. That would have irked me to no end. How can they call it a contest if everyone wins?

    Re: What have you won in a contest, or raffle?

    I knew I was forgetting one. I won a bunch of football snacks, chips, dip, soda, pizza at a grocery store in Wisconsin. I was up visiting my brother in the Northwoods, and we stopped in the store, I filled out the ticket for a Packers football party snack pack, and I thought there was no way I would win. The next day I got a call at my brothers place telling me I had won. When I went to pick up my winnings, I told them I was a Bears fan.

    Oh, and lest I forget the 2 liter of Lime Pepsi I won in the "Call Upon Yoda" game.

    I had something similar to what you are talking about Turbo. A health club said I won a free day at the club, but they were handing them out to everyone to try to get you to sign up for a membership.
