Dear Ottawa Senators fans,
It’s been a pretty rough start to the season, right?
To make things a little better for four lucky fans, I’m giving away two pairs of tickets to Thursday night’s game (October 14th, 2010) against the Carolina Hurricanes! Here’s the deal: Winners must live in Ottawa, be free on Thursday night and be legal drinking age (19). Sounds reasonable, right?
You should know these free tickets come courtesy of the fine folks at Molson Canadian. Since they’re giving away some great seats, check out their Facebook page, Like it and join in with the hockey discussions on their wall (ie. plaster the wall with “Leafs suck” messages).
There are two ways to win. You can participate in both methods if you like. But, you can only win once.
Method 1: Leave a comment below with your best Leafs suck joke. The funniest joke wins. It’s that simple. Get creative people! All jokes must be submitted by Wednesday, October 13th at 8pm EST. Please leave your email address in the email field so I can follow up with the winner.
Method 2: Tweet the following:
www.stayclassy.net rules! Now gimme free Sens tickets #StayClassySens
Note: If you don’t tweet exactly what’s in bold, I may not see the tweet and you won’t win. The winner will be randomly selected at 8pm EST on Wednesday, October 13th. The winner will be notified via direct message on Twitter.
Finally, while you are on the site, take a read through Stayclassy’s “greatest hits” and remember why this is your favourite hockey blog!
There you go, folks. Have fun and spread the word! Good luck and Stay classy!

Update: As of October 13th at 9pm, both winners have been contacted. I’m still awaiting a response from one of the winners. Thanks for your participation, everyone.
Update 2: First of all, thanks to everyone who participated in this fun little giveaway. It got far larger than I expected! There will probably be some scrutiny for the winning joke, largely because everyone has a different sense of humour. I don’t know the winner, but I found the joke clever, witty and to the point. Here it is, from Joanne:
The other day was take your child to work day. The Leafs had a fun time, played a little scrimmage against their sons and daughters. Unfortunately they lost, 5-3.
The Twitter winner was randomly selected. In fact, I had Mrs. Burgundy select two random numbers. I subtracted one from the other and landed on @msconduct. Send her and Joanne your warmest congratulations and maybe we’ll do this again in the near future! Thanks again to everyone!
