Did Somebody Say “Free”?

by on May 5, 2011 · 13 comments

That’s right.  It’s another of our world famous giveaways.  That’s where we do something really complicated to give away something to one of our 3 loyal readers.  Alternatively, we do something really, really simple to give something away to someone who isn’t one of our 3 loyal readers.  I reviewed the Fantasy Sports Coach app the other day, and I must admit that I liked it.  I liked it enough to keep using it, and I provided some email feedback to the team behind FSC.  The people at FSC were kind enough to provide us with some promotional codes to do what in some circles is called “promote” the app.  So, what is the catch?  Well, you have to be an iPhone or iPod Touch user, and you have to actually win one of the codes.  Sounds tough, right?  You should know better than that by now.

HOW TO WIN:  Be one of the first 5 people in the next 125,000 to post a comment with the words “All hail Multimedia King Josh” in the comment.  Note that the “125,000” has nothing whatsoever to do with this at all.  However, the line about “Multimedia King Josh” is extremely important.  You must include it.  Seriously.  No, I can’t explain why.  Some things just are what they are. 


  1. Members of the PH8 staff and their relatives are automatically disqualified from competing.  Dogs, too.
  2. If you are among the 5 selected winners, you must agree to allow us to use your email address to send you the code which must be redeemed some time during the next 30 days.
  3. If you happen to be the owner of a pet dragon, you must show proof that your dragon is less than 500 years of age in order for you to qualify for this giveaway.
  4. Winners may not be under the influence of any hallucinogenic drug (ice cream, chocolate, or Reese’s Peanut Butter products included) in order to qualify.
  5. Owners of any unlicensed hovercraft may not participate.
  6. Previous winners of PH8 contests are encouraged not to participate.  That means that if you previously won a tshirt, coffee mug, or sports car from us, we simply ask that you do not play this time.
  7. You have to like free things.
  8. You must be a fan of one of the 29 MLB teams or the Nationals.
  9. If you win the code AND can prove that you work for the Dodgers, we’ll try to help you find a new job.
  10. After you win and receive the code, we ask that you post a comment that announce something to the effect of: “All hail Multimedia King Josh – Supreme Ruler of Free Codes” or something similar.

Cardinals fan since I could hold a fishing pole steady. Accidental blogger. Opinionated. I could care less about what you think of me. Constantly confounded, bemused, and confuzzled (ie I'm a pc and a mac). I'm an IT infrastructure analyst with a penchant for breaking tech toys. I ate a sabermetric primer for breakfast. I love playing "All-powerful GM of MLB". The 2010 Cardinals represented a good, practical definition "cognitive dissonance". The 2011 version got by on duct tape and a prayer, and I'm fine with that. They just need new tape for #12 in 12.

All hail Multimedia King Josh. Is it ok that I am under the influence of icecream?

Dennis May 5, 2011

We’ll let the ice cream thing slide this time, although I’m tempted to question what flavor you are using. Enjoy the app.

Dennis May 5, 2011

Indeed, Josh shall be hailed.

Otter May 5, 2011

Hail to the Multimedia King Josh, baby.

Dennis May 5, 2011

Sweet! I sure hope Josh is around and aware that he is currently being hailed.

All hail Multimedia King Josh…..

We’re not worthy! We’re not worthy!

Dennis May 5, 2011

Hahaha. No, we’re not worthy. It’s Josh’s world, and we’re all just paying rent.

Lee May 5, 2011

All hail Multimedia King Josh!

Full disclosure, in case you are worried that I may not qualify: I no longer own my dragon, Chuckles (long story), and I’ve been hallucinogen-free since ’93.

Dennis May 5, 2011

Lee, that is bordering on too much disclosure, but I sent the promo code anyway. Enjoy. Sorry to hear about Chuckles, though.

Dmbnl May 5, 2011

I will hail Josh the multimedia King if he finds another code for this distraught sixth poster….

Dennis May 5, 2011

Well, that’s it folks. Multimedia King Josh has been properly hailed, and we’re all out of promo codes for Fantasy Sports Coach (h/t to @fantasysportsco). Happy Birthday to this site, and I wish it many more good years to come. Thanks to all 3 of our loyal readers and everybody else for reading.
