We've been doing a lot of free ticket giveaways lately on Talking Chop, and I'm excited to bring you another free ticket giveaway to this Saturday night's Braves game, which is also Outdoorsman Night at Turner Field.
Outdoor Channel (AMERICA'S LEADER IN OUTDOOR TV) and XFINITY TV from Comcast will be teaming up with the Atlanta Braves for a second year in a row to host its pregame "Fields & Reels Outdoorsman Night" expo on Saturday, August 20th.
Kicking off hunting season, Willie Robertson, star of Outdoor Channel's "Buck Commander Protected by Under Armour" and "Benelli Presents Duck Commander," will headline the event with an appearance by former Braves player Ryan Klesko to celebrate the night with area hunters, anglers and outdoor enthusiasts. In partnership with XFINITY, the network will offer activities and prizes at a co-branded booth prior to the Braves vs. the Arizona Diamondbacks game at Turner Field.
Additionally, Outdoor Channel HD recently launched in Atlanta on XFINITY Channel 758 as part of the Digital Preferred and Sports & Entertainment tiers.
The fine folks at the Outdoor Channel have provided me with two tickets to Saturday night's game. I'm not sure exactly where they are, but I am told they are in the player's section, so these could be some extra special good tickets. They have also given me five gift packs from Buck Commander to give away, consisting of a hat, bandanas, face paints, and the Buck Commander DVD. That's some pretty awesome prize action, so thatnks to the folks at Outdoor Channel, Comcast, and Buck Commander.
We're going to play our usual pick 'em game to see who will win the tickets (plus a gift pack). The four runners up will also receive a gift pack. In the comments section of this story, post what you think Derek Lowe's line will be tonight in the following format: IP, H, R, BB, SO. So if you think Lowe will throw 6 innings, allowing 7 hits, 2 runs, 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts, your post should read: 6,7,2,2,3. As a tie-breaker, also post your guess for the final score: Braves 17, Diamondbacks 2 (or whatever, but Braves are gonna win).
Get your picks posted before game time, as no submissions after that will be counted. The winners will be notified by me by email, and the winner of the tickets will need to get back to me pretty quickly with their name, so I can inform our sponsors and they can leave your tickets at will call. Make sure the email address you have in your profile is correct.
Good luck! And GO BRAVES!
