My lovely assistant helped pull out the lottery balls.
First off, apologies for the delay in drawing the winners for the Five Reasons You Love Hockey Contest but they've all been notified and will hopefully have a better chance of getting their great gear than Godd Till did. Second, if you haven't read all 25 entries then I suggest you do so as soon as possible. They tell a tale of how some came to love the game and it's really interesting to see where the reasons overlap.
Among the most commonly cited reasons was playoff hockey and I think this first round has run the gamut of examples of why it's such a great time of the year. I e-mailed the winners so please check it and let me know that you got it. Thanks to everyone that participated in what turned out to be a great exercise. Thank God I decided not to make it judged because there's a lot of great writing in there.
Anyway, without further ado, the winners:
- Fleet Fox - The Pucking Hilarious t-shirt
- Loser Domi - The Doug Gilmour bobblehead to join her Eric Lindros bobblehead
- Plea From A Cat Named Felix - The Wendel Clark moustache
