Please Help Us Win a Braves Vacation!

(Note from gondeee:  I've promoted this to the front page. The power of TC must be flexed here!)

Hello Braves fans!  My friend Cara and I recently entered a contest to win a baseball roadtrip from Sears Auto Center.  The first round of the competition was to create a Youtube video explaining why we wanted to go on this road trip, where we would go, and what it would mean to us.  The Top 10 videos then advance to the Finalist Round, where the two teams who tally the most online votes between July 13 and July 23 would win the chance to go on their roadtrip from August 5-13.  The two winning teams get $1500 to go on their trip as well as tickets to 3 games in three different stadiums in the region of their choice (East, South, Midwest, West Coast) during the week of the trip.

Cara and I just graduated from the Southern Illinois University School of Law, and we will be taking the bar exam at end of July.  We thought this trip would be a great way to celebrate being done with the bar exam and a fantastic last blast of fun before we start our grown-up jobs this fall.  We are huge Braves fans (she's a Freddie Freeman fan, I'm a Brian McCann man), so naturally we applied for the South region roadtrip, featuring the A's at Rays on August 7, Braves at Marlins August 9, and Cubs at Braves August 12 (Bobby Cox #6 Retirement Ceremony Night!!!)

We have been selected as one of the 10 finalist teams to win one of the roadtrips.  So now, we need all the votes we can get to help send us on this rocking Braves expedition.

So, pretty please, my beautiful internet friends of Talking Chop, do us a huge favor and


Besides, if we don't win, some lame Red Sox or Yankees or Phillies or Twins fan will.  Nobody wants that.

Here is our application video:

Thank you all and GO BRAVES!
