Sportsshooter & his daughter finalists in Packers Contest

->> Check this out. Longtime Sportsshooter Tom Sperduto is one of five finalists in a Green Bay Packers ticket contest, for a photo of his daughter, Emily, now in public voting. (It's Tom from NJ, with the photo of Emily in the Cheesehead hat against the green b/g)

Vote for them if you're so inclined. From a technical perspective, his is far and away the best shot of all the finalists...take a look and help a fellow Sportsshooter out!

->> Have we really come to a point where we flip everything upside down and expose the bad side?

Can we step back and look at this from the point of view of a father and daughter entering a really cool contest to get their picture on all of the tickets to a Packers game? This message board doesn't have to be doom and gloom all the time.

Even as a Bears fan I voted for the photo. That'd be a pretty awesome story and memento for any football fan!

->> Joel, exactly!

And sadly, I just knew one of the toads of misery would have to cite the rules here to show how it is absolutely terrible to enter this contest and considered, briefly, not sharing my friend's news because of the exceedingly caustic nature of this board these days.

All that being said, I'm certain Tom weighed the potential reward versus the conditions and decided, that as a really, really, really um...dedicated...Packers fan, that the tradeoff was one that he was willing to make for he and Emily to share a fantastic experience, and win or lose, they've already made it to the Final Five. Em, (and Tom, too) must be so excited!

->> Thanks Joel and Jack. I fully understood the rules when I entered the contest. Having my daughter's photo on 80,000 tickets, two free game tickets to Lambeau, free airfare and hotel stay ... all for 15 minutes of fun with my daughter in our family room before a Packers game? I'll take it. She is so excited about the contest and the possibility of going to Green Bay. That alone is worth it.
I do miss the days when Sportsshooter was fun. It seems there is a buzz kill on every thread. Thanks to those who voted!

->> Just doing a quick look at delta's website, it looks like about $400 for a roundtrip ticket from Newark to Green Bay in September - so $800 for the two of them. Two nights at a hotel is another $400. The game tickets are probably $75 each. Now we're at about $1,350. With other things the team will likely throw in, the prize package is easily over $1,500.

But a father/daughter weekend at Lambeau Field with her face on everyone's ticket = priceless!

->> Tom, that is one great picture of your daughter! It put a smile on my face to see such great enthusiasm from such a young fan. To be a die hard fan for any sports team and to have the opportunity to see your kids picture on a game day ticket, would be something you will both always remember. That alone is priceless. Good luck man.
