The kind folks at Holiday Inn really want to make the four loyal readers of PH8 happy.

To that end, Holiday Inn – the Official Road Trip Partner of MLB – has provided us with a $75 gift card to Dick’s Sporting Goods *AND* some All-Star Game swag to give away to you, our loyal readers.

There are numerous ways we could choose to find new homes for these excellent prizes, but instead of the typical “who will win” or “how many home runs will Matt Holliday hit in the Home Run Derby” kind of questions, I thought we’d make you work for this one…

In the comments below, tell us what your favorite Cardinal All-Star moment is, and why it’s the best and should win you a prize.  We’ll leave out Stan Musial’s game-winning home run from 1955, since MLB has already played that one up – what’s the next favorite of yours?

Winners will be chosen completely subjectively by Dennis, Josh and I – therefore, sorry fellas, we’re not eligible.

If there are more than one deserving story, we’ll ship the gift card to the one deemed the best and the AS swag to the runner-up.  Sound okay to you?

Want more ways to win?  Holiday Inn is also giving away baseball road trips during tonight’s Home Run Derby and tomorrow night’s game.  You’ll receive a weekend getaway including two tickets to see the team/game of your choice!  You can enter for this great prize two ways:

  • During the Home Run Derby tonight, guess the distance of the longest home run during the Home Run Derby and text your guess to 88222
  • During the All-Star Game on July 12, guess which team will get the most hits and text either “NL” or “AL” to 88222

It’s that easy to win!  Thanks again to Holiday Inn, the Official Road Trip Sponsor of MLB, for hooking us up with these great prizes to give away!

Writing about the Cardinals and other loosely associated topics since 2008, I've grown tired of the April run-out only to disappoint Cardinal fans everywhere by mid-May. I do not believe in surrendering free outs.
