Thanks to Katie for sending this info. She says:
“For the third year in a row DIRECTV is giving die-hard NFL displaced fans around the country the chance to earn the distinction as America’s Ultimate Displaced Fan. A displaced fan is someone who lives outside the city of their favorite team, for example Archie Manning, who lives in New Orleans, is a die-hard Giants and Colts fan, uses the NFL SUNDAY TICKET Package to watch his sons Peyton and Eli play every Sunday. Die-hard Displaced fans, such as Archie, can enter the contest by logging onto www.ultimatedisplacedfan.com and upload their videos, photos or essays showing why they deserve to be crowned the Ultimate Displaced Fan. One grand prize winner will receive the ultimate Super Bowl experience, including a trip to for two to Dallas, two tickets to the game and the opportunity to go on a media tour at the famed “radio row” with a player from their favorite team. If that’s not enough, the winner will rub elbows with NFL stars and celebrities when they participate in the DIRECTV Beach Bowl celebrity flag football game.”
Y’all know that I’m a former Pittsburgher now living in NYC for some reason. I miss Pittsburgh all the time, especially not being able to get to home games for the Steelers, Pirates and Pens. I use this blog as my way of keeping in touch and up to date, since the Pittsburgh teams only play so many games that I can get to in this area. And I hope I’ve reached a few of you who are displaced for whatever reason as well.
Last year’s winner was a Steelers fan living in Bengals territory, so there’s no reason why Steelers fans can’t repeat. Enter at that link above. And if you win and are a Steelers fan living in Baltimore or something, I’ll personally give you like a bajillion dollars, too. Cos that’s gotta suck.
