October Contest

October 12th, 2010

Molson Canadian and ice hockey were both Made from Canada, two of the most awesome things in Canada.

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!

    What do the Argonauts and Leafs have in common?

    Neither of them can play hockey!

    Q & A from Health Canada
    Q: The Stanley Cup was recently on tour in my town, and I kissed it. Do I have to worry about being infected by listeria?
    A: You are safe. The Stanley Cup has not been in contact with any Maple Leaf product in over 40 years.

  3. Joanne says:

    Where can I find Toronto Maple leaf jokes?
    On the ice wearing blue & white jerseys :P

    On a tour of Florida, the Pope took a couple of days off to visit the coast for some sight seeing. He was cruising along the beach in the Pope mobile when there was a frantic commotion just off shore. A helpless man, wearing a Toronto Maple Leafs jersey, was struggling frantically to free himself from the jaws of a 25-foot shark.

    As the Pope watched, horrified, a speedboat came racing up with three men wearing Ottawa Senator jerseys aboard. One quickly fired a harpoon into the shark’s side. The other two reached out and pulled the bleeding, semiconscious Leaf fan from the water. Then using baseball bats, the three heroes beat the shark to death and hauled it into the boat.

    Immediately the Pope shouted and summoned them to the beach. “I give you my blessing for your brave actions,” he told them. “I heard that there was some bitter hatred between Leaf and Sens fans, but now I have seen with my own eyes that this is not the truth.”

    As the Pope drove off, the harpooner asked his buddies “Who was that?” “It was the Pope,” one replied. “He is in direct contact with God and has access to all of God’s wisdom.” “Well,” the harpooner said, “he may have access to God’s wisdom, but he doesn’t know much about shark fishing.” “How’s the bait holding up?”

    One last one for the night. May the best man/woman win!

    Not a joke, just straight up facts.

    Since the last time the Leafs won the Cup…
    -Martin Luther King Jr. died
    -Pierre Trudeau elected prime minister
    -Hot Wheels were introduced to the public
    -Elvis Presley died
    -The National Arts Centre opens its doors
    -The Brady Bunch premieres on TV
    -The Brady Bunch’s finale airs on TV
    -A man lands on the moon
    -The Beatles disband
    -Richard Nixon impeached from office
    -Jeremy Roenick is born
    -Vince Vaughn, uh, I mean, Wes Mantooth is born
    -Frazier defeats Ali
    -Hell, even the ageless wonder Chris Chelios was only 5 years old!

    So, remember, if life’s got you on the ropes and you’re down on your luck, at least you don’t have 40 years (and counting) of ineptitude at your back.

    A newfie was rowing a small dinghy in the atlantic ocean when all of a sudden an alien spaceship arrives and hovers overhead.

    The newfie doesn’t really notice and goes on rowing and singing “Ize de boy dat builds de boats and Ize da boy what sails em.”

    The aliens however, are intrigued and decide to flash a ray at the newfie that removes half his brain.

    All of a sudden the newfie’s tune changes to “Frere Jacques, Frere Jacques…”

    The aliens are impressed and decide to crank up the ray to the point where it removes the other half of the newfie’s brain…

    Now the newfie starts rowing even harder and starts singing “GO LEAFS GO!!!”

    Two boys were playing hockey at an outdoor arena when one is attacked by a Pitbull. Thinking quickly, the other boy rips a board off the nearby fence, wedges it down the dog’s collar and twists, breaking the dog’s neck. A reporter who was walking by saw the incident, and rushed over to interview the boy!

    “Vancouver Canucks fan saves friend from vicious animal,” he starts writing in his notebook.

    “But I’m not a Canucks fan,” the boy replied.

    “Edmonton Oilers fan rescues friend from horrific attack,” the reporter starts again.

    “I’m not a Oilers fan either,” the boy said.

    “Then what are you?” the reporter asked.

    “I’m a Maple Leafs fan.”

    The reporter turns to a new sheet in his notebook and writes, “Redneck idiot kills family pet.”

    Last one before it’s too late:

    Two guys are camping out in the Muskokas enjoy a Molson, sitting around a fire at night and relaxing. Suddenly, one of them sits bolt upright and shouts, “DAMMIT! The Leafs lost!” His friend, impressed with his friend’s psychic ability, asked, “How do you know?” His friend replied, “It’s after 10:00pm.”

  9. Burgundy says:

    Thanks all! Apparently I have several entries to go through… Stay tuned…

  10. Matt says:

    Will the winning joke be posted, can’t wait to see what joke takes top spot.

  11. Burgundy says:

    @ Matt – Yeah, I posted an update, check it out.

  12. SENSaholic says:

    How about next time we award the prize to someone who was original with their joke, and didnt find it on the internet under “general team sports joke”, and just inserted Toronto Maple Leafs in the fill in the blank spot?

    Sour grapes? not at all, im already going to the game, but for someone to have 20 TML jokes THAT clever? lol, suuuuure

  13. Joanne says:

    Sounds like sour grapes to me.

  14. Joanne says:

    Oh and thanks Burgundy!! (by the way thats EXACTLY how I found that joke .. nothing was changed) I submitted those jokes because I had fun with my 13 yr old doing so again thank you.

  15. SENSaholic says:
