Lurkers unveil!

Anyone who follows this blog knows that I'm not a regular poster, and I don't follow a bunch of other blogs either. I'm probably not up on the latest blog etiquette, but I do recall other blogs having outing sessions for their lurkers. It may even be a specific time of year, this de-lurking time, but not being up on blogging etiquette, I'm not quite sure.

Anyway, I thought I'd give it a go. I don't think I actually have any lurkers at all, just a couple of NL Central sisters who are kind enough to stop by occasionally and say something nice. But we'll see.

I have a bit of an ulterior motive here as well. I have a pair of tickets for a game in September that I won't be using. I could give them away to one of my bosses, or a colleague. But I've given away lots of tickets over the last few years, and have essentially gotten nothing in return. (Actually, one of my bosses wrote me a thank-you note for his tickets--a thank-you note! And he's a guy!)

Or, I could try to sell them on StubHub, which I've done before. But, with the way the Astros are playing, plus with the fees that SH charges, I'd basically be giving them away anyway, plus I'd have to hassle with getting them shipped.

So, here's the deal. Lurkers, unveil. Comment on this post, tell me why you like the Astros and what, if anything, you like about my blog. My favorite response will be given two Club level tickets to the Astros/Pirates game on Saturday, September 15th (hint: sucking up probably helps). We'll leave the contest open until after the All-Star Break, so let's say July 14th. I'll announce the winner, if there is one,* on Monday July 16th.

Good luck!

*Meaning, if there are even any lurkers at all!

That's not the way to get free tickets, my friend.
