Not only did I think that happened, but I was encouraged by how my followers enjoyed submitting headlines. For most contests, which usually last 10 minutes after the game concludes, I receive hundreds of entries.
Up until now, the winners of my headline contests received a retweet for the winning headline. Although it was a nice recognition, I had always hoped that there would be something better.
Well, in time for what could be the greatest headline contest ever for the big game this weekend, we now have an awesome prize to give away.
The folks at Sony's Columbia/Epic label are giving the winner of the contest two tickets to see Harry Connick Jr. live in Boston at the end of April. The prize includes air transportation for two, a hotel room and a backstage meeting with the Grammy, Emmy and multi-platinum artist after the show. The winner will also get a copy of a CD/DVD of Connick's "Live on Broadway," which hits stores March 1.
So why is the music company doing this?
"We are always exploring new ways to expose our artists and music in non-traditional outlets," said Brian Nolan, senior director of Sony's Columbia/Epic Label group, who dreamed up the partnership idea.
