Have you ever wanted to drink out of the Stanley Cup, sleep with it, or take a photo with it? Well, now’s your chance! Discover has partnered with the NHL to offer one lucky fan a day with the Stanley Cup:
Discover invites you to compete to win a day with the Stanley Cup® (the “Grand Prize”) by submitting a photo demonstrating your (or your child’s) passion for the sport of hockey along with an essay describing why you (or your child) deserve a day with the Stanley Cup®. A panel of judges will judge all eligible submissions to determine the top three (3) Finalists (each of the top three, a “Finalist,” and collectively, the “Finalists”). The Finalists’ submissions will be posted online where website visitors can vote for their favorite submission to determine the winner of the Grand Prize…
After April 12, three final entries will be chosen and posted to Facebook where the public will have five days to vote for their favorite entry. The contestant with the most votes by 11:59 p.m. ET on April 21, 2012 will be deemed the official Day With the Cup™ Winner, and will be awarded the ultimate hockey package, which includes spending a day with the Stanley Cup, celebrating with family and friends, having the experience documented and featured during game one of the Stanley Cup® Final, as well as round trip airline fare, hotel and tickets to one of the games of the Stanley Cup Final.
Sadly, the rules prohibit doing anything with it other than taking photos, so no eating/drinking/sleeping with the Cup. However, the winner and 25 of his/her closest friends get to have their pictures taken with it, and the winner also gets a trip to a Stanley Cup final game, so it’s not a total loss.
We’ve discussed the best referee taunts; now it’s time to talk about the fans. What’s the best taunt to opposing fans/players/teams that you’ve heard? The Winnipeg fans had a stinging one for Ryan Miller, “SILVER MEDAL.” And of course, there’s the always classic chant for the Islanders, “WE WANT FISHSTICKS!”
Leave your favorite in the comments below, and you could be a winner. (Preferably something more clever than “<insert name here> sucks.”) Two readers will be selected by OFB to each win a $25 Discover gift card. Try to keep it clean, and nothing ignorant or obscene, please. If more than one similar comment is submitted, the first has priority. Deadline for entry is Wednesday, April 11 at 5:00 p.m. EST; the winners will be contacted and announced shortly thereafter.
