Thursday Thirteen #35

Thirteen Things about Mike
13 Things I've won in my life
I suppose I can never say "I've never won anything in my life!"

1. 2 tickets to game #2 of the 1980 World Series to see my Philadelphia Phillies beat the KC Royals! (I was 9 y/o and it was AWESOME). (from the paper my brother and I had a route with)

2. $1000 on a $5 scratch-off lottery ticket.

3. 2 tickets to A Night in Rocketown, the concert that was recorded to showcase Michael W. Smith's artists and his own music at the Hard Rock Cafe in Orlando, FL. (radio)

4. 2 passes to a sneak preview of the movie Love Actually that included a giftcard to a restaurant and a follow-up drawing in which I won a DVD player. (radio)

5. 2 passes to a sneak preview of the movies "Someone Like You." (radio)

6. An MP3 player for selling lots of milkshakes when I worked for Chick-fil-a.

7. A copy of the Jim Carrey Liminey Snicket movie (which we have neer opened). (radio)

8. An autographed t-shirt from 80's pop singer Debbie Gibson. (for completing a word search)

9. Luxury box tickets to see Jimmy Buffet at the Orlando Arena (entry by getting an oil change).

10. 2 passes to a preview of the movie Rat Race.

11. 2 passes to a NASCAR Busch series race which I gave away. (radio)

12. 2 passes to an early Uma Thurman movie with Anthony Michael Hall and Robert Downey, Jr. called Johnny Be Good. (radio)

13. The best prize imaginable, my wife Amy's heart.
