Of Padraig Hats and Tiger Balls - A Cool Contest


LPGA fans, golf fans, sports memorabilia collectors: there's an awesome contest going on at Wei Under Par, (the engaging golf blog of ultra-cute girl-about-town, Stephanie Wei) that you probably want to enter.

The prize is a Sybase Classic hat autographed by LPGA players, including Suzann Pettersen, Meg Mallon, Se Ri Pak, Janice Moodie, Lisa Strom, Julieta Grenada, Ai Miyazato, Vicky Hurst, Morgan Pressel, Kelli Kuehne, Paige Mackenzie, Christina Kim, Jeehae Lee, and others.

It's easy to enter; Stephanie just asks you to submit your "best story about the lengths you went to get an autograph from a celebrity." It can be any celebrity in any field, and you just have to email it to Ms. Wei at steph [dot] wei [at] gmail [dot] com. The deadline is Wednesday, May 27.

As you may surmise from the photos above mine involves Padraig Harrington who I've been known to claim as a long lost cousin. I think it's pretty funny, but you may have a better one. If so, send it in and you might just win.

Stephanie herself has collected a couple of stellar signatures in her day. Head over to Wei Under Par to read about her impressive autographs. I've got to admit, I'm rather jealous of her Tiger ball.
