The Miss604 Hockey Giveaway

Comments 34 by Rebecca Bollwitt

UPDATE:The winner has been announced – thanks to all that entered!

It’s contest time again! This time you won’t have to stand on one foot, pat your head and rub your belly at the same time.

This is the no-linking required contest that couldn’t be more simple to enter (but I mean hey, if you want to link…). This is purely out of reader appreciation, cause you all rock.

Starting RIGHT NOW all you need to do is leave a comment on this post or send an email to [email protected] and you’ll be entered to win the following hockey prize pack:

  • Two tickets to the BC Rockies vs Canucks Alumni hockey fundraiser game on March 22nd (more info).
  • Two tickets to the Vancouver Giants vs Everett Silvertips on March 8th (Read more info about our champions who are currently 43-13-2-6 and sold out the Pacific Coliseum last night with over 14,000 in attendance).
  • An uncut sheet of 2007/2008 Vancouver Giants hockey cards (not available in stores!) These are collectors in the making.
  • The new McFarlane brand Trevor Linden action figure – another must have for collectors and Linden-lovers alike!
  • One non-hockey related, limited edition, highly coveted Miss604 sticker.
  • face off

    If you’re a hockey team and have some merchandise or tickets you’d like to drop into the prize pack, feel free to email the contest line as well and I’ll send links and praise your way.

    You don’t have to be a blogger, all you need is access to a computer and possibly a love of local hockey, and you’re able to enter.

    The contest will be open for one week, until Tuesday March 4th, so I can have enough time to alert the winner and get the prize pack to them. Also, be sure to leave a valid email address at which you can be reached if you’re simply leaving a comment.

    That’s it, that’s all, just send an email or leave a comment – any comment – tell a knock knock joke or say hello, and you’ll be entered to win the hockey prize pack.

    Fine print for fun: does not collect or store email information for any other purpose than to alert winners.

      I was really hoping we would get Forsberg as he would have been a good fit with our team.

      So no predictions at all?

      (PS – Can you add the subscribe to comments plugin?)

    2. BethTuesday, February 26th, 2008 — 7:46am PST

      Cool! I haven’t been to a Giants game yet this year, but I went to a few last year and they are fun!

      (PS – I agree with Gary, I’d love to be able to subscribe to your comments!)

      Beth & Gary: I use a to track comments on sites that you can’t subscribe to…works great.

      I wrote a blog post about it…want to see it? (heh)

      I guess this is technically my entry too.

    4. RaulTuesday, February 26th, 2008 — 8:47am PST

      This is going to sound corny and cheesy but hey whatever… I’m already considered dangerous for people with low sugar tolerance as I’ve been known to induce diabetic commas due to sweetness 😉

      … I have learned to appreciate hockey thanks to The Crazy Canucks 🙂

    5. ChrisTuesday, February 26th, 2008 — 9:02am PST

      Man… Richards just went to Dallas. Why would Tampa not want to do the same deal for Sanford, Isbister, and Cooke? (I would actually hate to part with Cooke)

    6. RyanTuesday, February 26th, 2008 — 9:03am PST

      My six-year old son would love to win this package. He lives for hockey and the Canucks! Every morning he wakes up and runs to the computer to check the video highlights on I am not kidding. He studies the standings and statistics and latest happenings in great detail and at great length.

      With playoffs drawing close, he is paying more attention to divisional games and explains to me how each game being played that day affects Vancouver’s chances at making the playoffs (e.g. if Washington beats Nashville and Vancouver beats the Avs, then…). Only once he’s got his “fix” and after much prodding, does he start to get ready for school.

      Myself, I’ve stopped watching the sports news, and instead just get my updates from my son. 🙂

      So please accept this entry to the contest. Thanks.

    7. Miss604Tuesday, February 26th, 2008 — 9:18am PST

      I know, now they’re just going off on how Dallas will be a “powerhouse” now in the playoffs. Geez. Thanks, Hull.

      Love the Giants and have only made it to one game this year and that was with 3 7 yr old boys. Sign me up for the contest!

    10. PercyTuesday, February 26th, 2008 — 10:27am PST

      As I sit here watching the trade deadline coverage, I can’t help but think that perhaps the Canucks don’t really need to pick up anyone. Nonis is right, we don’t need a rental so let’s think long-term here. Although I don’t doubt Richards would have provided something fresh to our team.

      However, Colorado could just make a surge with their signings. And Washington should look better now.

      At least I can always rely on the Giants!

    11. Jeffery SimpsonTuesday, February 26th, 2008 — 11:36am PST

      I’m entering if only for the Trevor Linden figure and the sticker.

    12. PatZTuesday, February 26th, 2008 — 11:45am PST

      The Capitals aren’t coming out this so bad.
      It’s a nice coincidence that this contest ends on my birthday…*cough*…

    13. DuaneTuesday, February 26th, 2008 — 11:45am PST

      Knock knock.
      Who’s there?
      Duane who?
      Duane the tub I’m drowning!


      This is my comment for the contest!

    14. Sean HagenTuesday, February 26th, 2008 — 11:50am PST

      Knock knock.
      Who’s there?
      Lettuce who?
      Lettuce out, we’re freezing!

      Also, I’ve got some sets of Vancouver Giants photos on my Flickr page ( ). I’m going to see if I can get a media pass once I get my 70-300 lens for my Nikon D80 so I can stand in the isles and take nice pictures of the players.

    15. JenniferTuesday, February 26th, 2008 — 1:19pm PST

      Sweet prize pack! Of course, the Trevor Linden action figure is clearly THE BEST part!

      P.S. Love your comment, Duane! hahahaha

    16. carolbrowneTuesday, February 26th, 2008 — 1:44pm PST

      Yay! The Giants. Great hockey. I did see you at The Northern Voice, but didn’t introduce myself. I’ll catch you next time for sure.

    17. Michael KwanTuesday, February 26th, 2008 — 2:12pm PST

      Nice contest package! It’s too bad Dave Nonis wasn’t a little more active this morning. I was hoping that Vancouver was still in the running for getting someone like Hossa or Jokinen.

    18. christineTuesday, February 26th, 2008 — 3:27pm PST

      My husband likes hockey (HUGE Canucks Fan) and I like blogging… so here’s my chance to show him both can have great rewards. Thanks!

      St. Peter and Satan were having an argument one day about hockey. Satan proposed a game to be played on neutral ice between a select team from the heavenly host and his own hand-picked boys. “Very well,” said the gatekeeper of Heaven. “But you realize, I hope, that we’ve got all the good players and the best coaches.” “I know, and that’s all right,” Satan answered unperturbed, “We’ve got all the referees.”

    20. MarkTuesday, February 26th, 2008 — 4:30pm PST

      Hopefully the word “local” includes the 250 area code. I’ll hop the pond for such a great prize pack – even if I just came back from Northern Voice 08! 🙂

    21. ChrisTuesday, February 26th, 2008 — 5:52pm PST

      Hopefully two comments doesn’t disqualify me, but after some thought, it came to my attention that Richards probably wasn’t the way to go. With his contract in the $7.5M range for another year, the Canucks would be setting themselves up for some tough economics down the road. Therefore I’m glad we didn’t sell the barn for the want of a high priced horse or two.

      Anywho, with the likely increase to the cap and the ability to re-up Nazzy and Mo for dollars that make sense should that be the route to go, free agency is far better than the trade route.

    22. Mr. Beer N. HockeyTuesday, February 26th, 2008 — 8:27pm PST

      You may as well have thrown in a pair of front row GM Place seats to game one of the Stanley Cup Final because the Canucks just might not make it that far.

    24. TrevorWednesday, February 27th, 2008 — 12:36pm PST

      I would be a fool to ignore this chance for a Trevor Linden action figure! Therefore a fool I shall not be. Consider me entered, madame!

    27. Heather BFriday, February 29th, 2008 — 9:55pm PST

      Count me in for anything to do with Trevor Linden. My all time fave! Cheers

    28. Gary Jones :: BlueFur.comSaturday, March 1st, 2008 — 10:09pm PST

      The subscribe to comments plugin is nice because then I don’t need to read all the replies only the one’s I subscribe to 😉

    29. Trudy AuSunday, March 2nd, 2008 — 3:49pm PST

      The retro Linden sure brings back memories of 1994…

    30. GregMonday, March 3rd, 2008 — 11:45am PST

      I’m muchly glad to now live in a city that isn’t as rabid about hockey as Edmonton.

    31. Jeremy LimMonday, March 3rd, 2008 — 10:06pm PST

      Holy crap, Miss 604 sticker! I’m in!

    32. RobCottinghamMonday, March 3rd, 2008 — 11:45pm PST

      I’m the guy smiling and nodding vacantly during the hockey conversation conversation by the water cooler. A Miss 604 sticker, though, will get a comment from me every time.
