View Full Version : Let's get to know GBPackRat a little bit better contest

The reason:
I was at the UW Badgers football home opener today (yes we won, 56 - 42 vs. Bowling Green in a heck of a shootout) and thought this would be a great contest to throw. Very few if any of you here at the boards know much about me other then the fact that I collect GI Joe hardcore. Some might know that I've attended the UW - Madison for the last 5 years and recently have graduated. What many might not know is, while I was at the UW I attended MANY sporting events. This is where you get to know me a bit better comes into play. Alright, so you know I love GI Joes, but I bet you didn't know I love sports. Even more so, I bet you didn't know I love UW Badger sports. This would be my next passion in life next to GI Joes. That brings me to the contest.

The contest:
I have a bag of almost ALL the ticket stubs from the UW sporting events I've attended over the course of the last 5 years. Your job is to guess how many tickets that is, WITHOUT going over. Closest wins.

Rules/Helpful Notes/Hints:

- The contest will run from today Saturday Sept. 3 and end roughly 2 weeks from now on Sept. 17th at 11:59 PM CST.

- The stubs only include the following sports here at the UW: Men's Football, Men's Hockey and Men's Basketball.

- I only counted stubs dated from 2000 - 2005.

- Tickets could include any post game play such as championship or playoff games.

- Tickets could include any preseason games.

- Tickets could include any road games I attended that involved the Badgers.

- I did not attend every possible game, so guessing the total of every game from 2000 - 2005 played in those sports away and at home would not be a correct number.

- I don't even think all the stubs are there anymore, its possible I attend more games, but I use the stubs as bookmarks and might have lost a few. Hence I only counted what I actually still have in the bag. I can provide pictures afterwards as proof if need be.

The Prize:

1 - 2005 Mint Convention Proof Medi Viper Cardback
1 - 2005 Mint Convention Proof Major Barrage Cardback

The Fineprint:

There is none, the contest is completely free to you no matter where you live. I'll handle postage, winner just needs to provide a mailing address.

So let's have some fun and get those guesses started.

If there's a tie, I'll figure out a tiebreaker.

09-18-2005, 01:54 PM
And the winner is....

roboticplanet with the guess of 129.

The actually amount was 142. RP, you were the closet without going over.

Yup, 142 games in the last 5 years... Its actually closer to 200 games, but some of them, I didn't attend as a student, but as a worker to help with pre game prep.

Thanks to all for playing,
