I hope you all enjoyed participating in the first part of my February Giveaway contest. It’s time for the second half of the contest!
Last night, I picked the winner of Part 1, and made a video out of it… Enjoy!
Congratulations! I’ll be in contact with you shortly!
I will be giving away a Michael Choice bobblehead from this Ports game if I am not able to get 28 different people to participate in the contest.
If 28 different people answer a question at at least one point over the next two weeks, I will change the prize to be something that everyone would want even more! I might even throw in a second prize!
So, let’s go over the rules again, shall we?
For the next two weeks, I will asked two questions a day. The person with the most points at the end of those two weeks will win the bobblehead!
• Each Day, I’ll be posting two (2) trivia questions, that will NOT be multiple choice.
• One (1) of those questions will be posted in this entry, so check back every day!
• The 2nd of those two (2) questions will be on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
• The order in which I use a social media will vary.
• The social media/blog question order will change.
• Each question you get right is 1 point each, for a maximum of 2 points each day.
• Each day, each person will have five (5) guesses.
• You may use those 5 guesses however you want with the 2 questions.
• If you use all 5 guesses for the 1st question, you can’t guess on the 2nd question, etc…
• Any guesses after 5 will be deleted or considered invalid
• If you use 3 guesses for one, you have two of the other.
• DO NOT make more accounts to try and have a better chance. You will be immediately disqualified from the giveaway for the rest of the month
• So, if I ask a the first question on my blog, and it takes you 4 guesses to be the 1st one with the correct answer, then you have 1 guess for the social media question. Does that all make sense?
• YOU MUST USE CORRECT SPELLING TO ANSWER THE QUESTION CORRECTLY. i.e IF DEREK NORRIS IS THE CORRECT ANSWER, I WILL NOT ACCEPT DEREK NORRES. IF THE ANSWER *FOR ANY REASON* IS JARROD SALTALAMACCHIA, I WOULD HOPE YOU TAKE THE TIME TO SPELL IT CORRECTLY CONSIDERING YOU PROBABLY GOOGLED THE QUESTION 🙂 Thanks!
* At the end of each day, I’ll announce the winners for the day.
* BE CAREFUL with house you use your guesses, you don’t want to waste them!
In order to answer questions on this blog, you must be subscribed to the blog for the vote to be valid. If you are not subscribed to this blog, your vote will be deleted and considered nonexistent.
Same thing with Twitter (@nickbatters AND @7000ColiseumWay) and Instagram (@7000ColiseumWay)… You MUST be following me for an entry to be considered valid.
Same thing with Facebook- You must like 7000 Coliseum Way’s page to answer a question there.
For the blog, you have to answer in the comments of this entry, and with the social media questions answers being needed in the comments of the post.
There will be twenty-eight (28) questions on the blog, and twenty-eight questions (28) questions on various social medias, for a total of 56 questions.
On March 1st, I will tally up points and put the names in a hat. I will then draw names from the hat until there is one (1) name left in the hat, at which point that person will be the winner. This will be in a YouTube video. So, the more questions you get, the better of a chance you will have to win!
For the blog questions, they will be numbered 1-28, one for each day of the month! Make sure to include the question number in your answer, otherwise it will be considered incorrect.
Does that all make sense? I hope I am clear enough here!

12: What were the giveaways for the A’s games I went to in August 2012? ON TWITTER (@7000ColiseumWay)
ANSWERED: JARED, QUINN, and HARRISON I want to apologize, as I screwed up on this question. I meant to type in 2011, whereas the correct answer would be a Ray Fosse bobblehead, and Jared gets a point because he answered that part correctly after I corrected myself. Harrison was the first person to answer the question posted correctly, so he gets a point there. And despite the fact that “Moneyball Move Night” technically is not a giveaway, it was listed on the giveaway schedule, and since Quinn got that first, he gets a point. Sorry for the confusion everyone! I’ll get it together next time!
