ChooSince Shin-Soo Choo and the Reds batting practice cap featuring Mr. Redlegs are two of the newest and coolest things in RedsLand this year, the  folks here at Better Off Red Headquarters have decided to allow you to use one to win the other.

Based solely on the flimsy fact that “Shin-Soo” rhymes with “haiku,” here’s the deal…

Tweet your best Shin-Soo Choo haiku using the hashtag #ShinSooHaiku, and you will be entered to win a pro model Reds batting practice cap featuring Mr. Redlelegs (the one the players are wearing this year).  The winner will be chosen by a panel of BOR staffers and he/she will be able to select size and choose between the home-red version and the road-black w/red bill version.

More details…



  • Yes, this is a contest exclusive to Twitter.  You should be on it by now.
  • You have to follow me on Twitter (@jamieblog) to be eligible to win – this is so I can direct message you, if you’re the lucky winner.
  • You must follow the basic rules of writing a haiku (5-7-5).
  • The subject of the haiku must be Reds outfielder Shin-Soo Choo.
  • The “random” winner will be selected based on content and creativity. Don’t forget the hashtag #ShinSooHaiku
  • The “random” winner will be announced here on Better Off Red on Monday, April 8.

Good luck!
