Good morning, everyone. The Winter Olympics are wrapping up this weekend. At the time of this writing, USA sits in second place behind Russia in the medals count. Before I get back to the Olympics, I have two winner announcements this morning. But first, here are the current sweepstakes running on my dad and movie blogs.
The Olympic Winter Games are finally here. My favorite events are short and long track speed skating. Actually, I love to watch most of the events. They are so exciting and the athletes are so inspiring. Unlike the annual national and world championships, the Winter Olympics only take place once every four years. It takes a lot of hard work, determination, and talent to win an Olympic medal. All athletes deserve our support. But because I’m an American, I’m rooting for Team USA. BTW, AT&T is a proud sponsor of the U.S. Olympic Team and the U.S. Paralympic Team. And thanks to AT&T, I’m giving away a gold medal prize pack consisting of a $100 Visa Gift card and a Team USA memorabilia package (t-shirt, gloves, signed picture). Continue reading to find out how you can enter the contest and support the U.S. Olympic Team.
SOL REPUBLIC set me a pair of their Tracks Ultra headphones for review and giveaway on my dad blog. I like the sound quality of the earbuds that came with my iPod Touch. But the sound quality of the Tracks Ultra blows away the Apple earbuds. I think a pair of SOL REPUBLIC headphones would make an excellent Christmas gift for a music lover. The Tracks Ultra headphones I’m giving away are available now for $179.99. You can buy a pair directly from SOL REPUBLIC. Or if you prefer, through Amazon. BTW, Michael Phelps wore a pair of SOL REPUBLIC headphones during the summer Olympics.
Sports Illustrated Kids sent me a copy of their Big Book of Why: Sports Edition for review on my dad blog. The book features answers to many kid’s sports questions. The book is great for sports-loving kids, but you don’t have to be a sports nut to like this book. My son loves the book too even though he’s not big on sports. I also found the book really interesting (I’m not a kid, but I am a sports nut). I think it makes a fun coffee table book. The book will also come in handy on long road trips. Sports Illustrated Kids’ BIG Book of Why: Sports Edition officially goes on sale next Tuesday for $17.95. However, Amazon is already selling the book for $14.
