As you’ve probably heard, Phillies beat writer extraordinaire and friend of The Fightins, Todd Zolecki, is about to release his first book under the publishing company Triumph Books entitled, “The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly: Heart-Pounding, Jaw-Dropping, and Gut-Wrenching Moments From Philadelphia Phillies History.”
Since Todd is such a good guy, he forced Triumph to send us 3 copies to do whatever we please with. And what pleases us is pleasing you, so I figured I’d hold a Phillies-centric contest and choose three winners to receive their very own copy. I say “Phillies-centric” contest because I believe one should at least have some knowledge of my favorite team in order to win the book.
After the jump, I’ve assembled a grade school-style matching quiz that will test your knowledge of Phillies players and their corresponding on-the-field quirks. Once you’ve correctly matched all eight of the players and their habit, simply fire off an e-mail to FightinsContest[at]Gmail[dot]com (Subject header “ZOLECKI”) and your entry will be graded for accuracy. If you’re one of the lucky ones to go 8-for-8, your answer sheet will then be thrown in a pile and I’ll pick the three random winners at the conclusion of the contest
The contest will end promptly at 3:59pm EST on Monday, February 22nd, 2010.
Get your quiz on, after the jump.
FYI: When sending the answers, simply write the matching number and letter, no need to write out the whole thing. Good luck.
Remember, send your answers to FightinsContest[at]Gmail[dot]com.
Thanks for playing.
