If you checked out Better Off Red yesterday, you saw that I’m in the process of cleaning up my office (aka, Better Off Red Headquarters).  I have lots of stuff….mostly stuff that I probably don’t need (or want) – lots of books, trinkets, doodads and geegaws.  So, in the tradition of the old adage “one man’s trash is another man’s treasure,”  I’m going to give you an opportunity to take some of this stuff off my hands.

I’ve filled two computer bags and one box with random items from BOR Headquarters.  Some of the items are just boring clutter, some of the stuff is actually pretty cool.  I’m going to give the box away here on the blog.  I’m going to give one of the computer bags away on on my Twitter account (@Jamieblog) and I’m going to give the other computer bag away on my Instagram account (Jamieblog).

The three winners will be announced Wednesday, Janurary 2.  This is very important:  If you’re one of the 3 winners, you have to pick up your prize at Great American Ball Park’s Administration Building lobby by 4pm Wednesday, January 9.    These prizes will not be mailed.

  • To win the box on the blog, you have to answer the question below in the comments section of this post.
  • To win the bag on Twitter, you have to follow @Jamieblog and reply to the Tweeted question when prompted, using the hashtag #BetterOffRed
  • To win the bag on Instagram, you have to follow “Jamieblog” and reply to the photo post when prompted.

Easy enough?

Ok, here’s the blog contest question:

B.O.R. is an acronym for Better Off Red.  What would Burt BobbleRed’s first name (“B.U.R.T.”) be an ancronym for?

Reply in the comments section of this blog post with your most creative answer (comments will go directly to me and can’t be seen by anyone else).  BOR executives will choose one lucky winner on Wednesday, January 2.
