Thursday Contest Announcement!

For anyone who missed the introduction,
be sure to read everything here.

A few weeks ago we ran our first contest for a commemorative Karl Jaeger print, and in three days we'll be running contest number two! This time around I'll hit you with an old familiar: a Who Am I? contest.

How does it work?

  1. At 8am central (9am eastern) on Thursday I'll post nine questions.
  2. Four will be defined as "easy" (more hints), three will be "medium" in difficulty (not as many hints) and two will be classified as hard (just a couple of clues).
  3. The first person to list all nine correct answers will be declared the winner, and will receive the print you see to your right.
  4. Previous winners (cough, Moojenowski) aren't eligible, but for the rest of the rules see below the jump.

Now, to be clear as to what you can win: An 18" x 22" print ($30.00 retail) on fine art paper, featuring the greatest players and moments in Twins history along with an image of Target Field from Opening Day with the American flag across the outfield and F-16s flying overhead.

As always, thanks to Karl and Aaron from Five Technology for working with us. To see more of the artwork, visit or Twins Baseball.

That's Thursday at 8am (9 eastern), be there! If you have any questions, throw them in the comments.
