As of this writing, we have 32,798 comments in the pot, which means we only need just 202 more for 33,000–and a comment contest winner.
And hey, this prize is gonna be somethin’ else! How would you like it if we sent you back in time, to 1951, and had you hit Bobby Thomson’s famous pennant-winning homer instead of Bobby Thomson? You hit “the shot heard ’round the world”! Well, if you’re the lucky reader to post Comment No. 33,000. all this can be yours!
Unless I can’t quite swing it. Then the prize will be an autographed copy of one of my books.
All readers can play, and all comments are eligible, with only the following exceptions: comments abusive to anyone else on this site; comments containing blasphemy or profanity; commercials thinly disguised as comments; or comments just too inane or fat-headed to bother with. Other than that, anything goes.
