Well, I got a message on my cell on October 31st from someone at the Post saying I had won some contest and to give her a call back. I had completely forgotten the contest already and erased the message and did not call back.
I got a second message from this same lady a few days later saying she really needed me to give her a call about the prize I had won. I rolled my eyes and called her back thinking this was some scam to get me to buy something.
Boy was I surprised!!!
My name had been drawn for the Capitals Giveaway contest and I had won a Hockey Stick!!!! Signed by Alex Ovechkin!!!!
I had to fill out an Affidavit saying I understood that this prize has a monetary value that is subject to taxes and then arrangements were made to get the stick to me. Kind of hard to mail a 6 foot hockey stick, so it was hand delivered this past Saturday!
Aidan is not happy here because the stick is all wrapped up with bubble wrap and I had just told him he was not allowed to use this stick! : ) He wanted to take it to Mini Mites!!!!
A little happier here because we had gotten the bubble wrap off and I put him in his Moscow Dynamo Ovechkin Jersey.
About as close to a hockey stance a 5 year can get in while wearing a jersey that is 5 times too big and holding such a big stick!! But, I think Aidan may decide to be #32 in the future. . .
And there you have it. My big excitement for the weekend!!
