We Have Our Winners!

It was tough, there were many highly worthy candidates but ultimately, someone had to win the free subscription for NBA League Pass Broadband. The choice was made exceedingly harder by the EXCELLENT trash-talk that many of the contestants participated in, I think your denigrations of each other made us all better people, and I know I enjoyed it and hope you did as well.

Our Grand Prize, first place winner exhibited some excellent follow-up trash-talk to go along with his fine initial comment. In particular his examples of players that he was like was masterfully done and amusing too, which is more than enough to sway this judge. So, the free NBA League Pass broadband package goes to commenter Bo!

In second place, exhibiting a crass, aggressive and acerbic wit, comes Gabe who wins a fabulous new CAR! Well. If by car I mean a NEW adidas NBA BACKPACK!  But similar! HOORAY!

Our third place finisher Brandon Ribak, brought a voice of reason to this knife-fight and backed up his talk, earning him this position and he wins… an NBA pullover sweatshirt! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Yes!

Honorable mention goes to SoxDoc whose Eric Montross comment probably made me laugh the most.

Thank you to ultimately though to EVERYONE who participated, you’re all winners. Technically those three people really “won” but you too won the day. Go forth and tell your friends that you “won” a contest on the Slanch Report, they’re sure to be impressed, call your parents, email your high school principal. Also stay tuned for more fun contests along the way as we hope to have many more in the new year hope you”ll all come along for the ride.

Finally, and most importantly THANK YOU so much for reading and participating and telling your friends about us and please don’t stop now; we have a number of big things coming that are only going to enhance everyone’s experience so stay TUNED!

Sign Our Petition!

The Slanch Report has started an online petition asking the MLB Network to air the Dock Ellis no-hitter he threw on June 12, 1970 against the San Diego Padres. The moment was a seminal piece of baseball history and is certainly worthy of being rerun.

Please join us in this cause and sign the petition below so we can all share in this special and fantastic moment of baseball history. THANKS!
