Mets writer holds crappiest contest ever

Mets_citifield_hat

Newark Star-Ledger writer Jeremy Cothran is holding a trivia contest for Mets fans with the lucky winner being awarded this god awful hat that only some old guy wears on the golf course when he’s somehow forgotten his seven other awkwardly fitting golf hats.

Jeremy, when you yourself wrote, "I don’t really have a use for it," you kind of answered your own question, or at least we thought you did.  Sadly, judging from your comments section, some people actually do have a use for this hat or just have a desperate need to be right about something.

Anyway, here are some other contest ideas likely left on the cutting room floor by Cothran:

  • Answer three trivia questions and hold your own shitty contest
  • Answer three trivia questions and let someone shit on your head
  • Answer three trivia questions and sit under a mango tree
  • Answer three trivia questions and plunk yourself with a MadBall
  • Answer three trivia questions and skip around your computer in a circle for three hours
  • Answer three trivia questions and sing "Meet the Mets" until someone punches you in the mouth
  • Answer three trivia questions, wear your new hat and instantly never get laid

A Hernia pound to the chest and dramatic point to the sky goes to devoted reader M.B. for sending this in.

    A used hat with a corporate logo on it?

    Throw in some Kwell Shampoo and I’ll research the answers!!

    You know, that would be one hat that a man over forty could wear backwards and look cool–I mean, if he was a welder or a photographer.

    I’d rather wear a hat that said “I boned El Guapo”

    I think the Citi logo is a rainbow.

    I would hate to break down in front of a biker bar with that on.

    Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffin’ hashmarks.

    At least Phil Hughes is giving away good swag in his own blog contests.
