Day One Winner: The Whore of Akron Giveaway Contest

Since the #WhoreOfAkronContest was announced at 1pm yesterday we have been overwhelmed by both the amount of entries received so far, as well as the quality of those submissions.  

There are at least thirty entries that Cleveland Jackson and I could have selected as our Day One Winner, and we definitely have received multiple winning tweets so far I believe.  Just because an entry you posted yesterday, or last night or this morning, is not today’s winner does not mean that it cannot still win later this week.  It can, and frankly there are a couple entries that probably will.   

We will be announcing ONE winner each day at 10am this week, and we will give away a total of FIVE copies of Scott Raab’s The Whore of Akron book by the end of business on Friday.  All entries will continue to be reviewed on an as received basis, and we will be announcing four more winners starting tomorrow.

The first copy is off the board though, and that winning tweet is below:

Reading all of the entries people have submitted so far has been fun to be honest with you too.  I was laughing out loud for most of the afternoon yesterday, and with the Browns game playing in the background the distraction was particularly appreciated. This one had me laughing particularly hard yesterday though, and points were obviously awarded for creativity as well as fan dedication. 

Congrats to Angelo Benedetti @HammerDownBlog on the win!

Keep the entries coming, and seriously thanks to everyone who has entered so far.
