HERE'S HOW TO WIN TIX TO PATS/JETS THIS THURSDAY NIGHT COURTESY OF NRG!
OK, Patspeeps - here’s how you can win a pair of tickets to Patriots versus Jets on Thursday Night Football this week, courtesy of the good people at NRG Energy. NRG is, as you may have guessed, a power supply and energy company. And here, we always love to discuss the fans in Foxboro being the best and loudest and craziest in the NFL. We want you to get lubed! Stay loud! Act like you just won both Showcase Showdowns all night long! You know, kinda how everyone did at Pats/Bengals a few weeks back. Well, that kinda fanimalistic behavior is exactly what we’re looking for here.
I’m looking for who is gonna bring the most energy, the most #PatriotsNRG, if you will, this Thursday night for Pats/Jets. And I want you to prove you should be one of two recipients of a pair of sweet, sweet tix. Here’s how you prove it - send me a short video, no longer than 1 minute (:06 if you use Vine, up to :15 if it’s instagram) telling me why you’re the one who deserves the tickets, and what kinda NRG you’ll bring to the game Thursday night. How you do this is up to you. Creativity is a speciality of you Pats maniacs. I always try and make you laugh if I make a video. So now it’s your turn. Be funny! Be creative! Be wild! Be weird! Shave something into your chest! Re-enact the Buttfumble using GI Joes! Don’t break the law! Whatever! Just find some sort of way to show you’re the one who deserves the tickets and will bring the noise, funk, energy and Edelmania this Thursday night. Or tell me some heart-wrenching military or lost dog story and there’s a chance you’ll get considered, too.
Winners will be chosen by yours truly tomorrow by 12pm EST. They’ll b notified immediately and have the tickets overnighted to their home or work, in plenty of time for Thursday night. Use the hashtag #PatriotsNRG when you tweet me (@FitzyGFY) your entry link, and give @ NRGEnergy a follow, if you wouldn’t mind. My pals @PatsPropaganda and @PatriotsLIfe are in on this action, too. So follow them for more ticket giveaways, and be on the lookout for info on a huge Pats party we’re throwing in Foxboro Nov 2nd for Brady/Manning 17. Epic would be an insultingly mild way to describe it.
So get after it! Go get ‘em! Let’s Go Pats! And, as always, Keep Calm And Brady On.
“Logan Mankins is everything we would ever want in a football player. It is hard to imagine a better player at his position, a tougher competitor or a person to represent our program. He is one of the all-time great Patriots and the best guard I ever coached. Logan brought a quiet but unmistakable presence and leadership that will be impossible to duplicate. Unfortunately, this is the time of year when difficult decisions have to be made - and this is one of the most difficult we will ever make - but like every other decision it was made for what we feel is in the best interests of the team.”—Of course Hoodie gushes about Mankins after he trades him. Much love for the big guy, though. Pretty much all that need be said. He’ll be missed. Might not be twilighting in career, but best days may be behind him. Still a force, a presence, a great Patriot. Pats added alotta depth at guard, youthful beef (great band or porn name?) and I think they’ll be OK there. Remember how well Josh Kline played in Baltimore last December? I’ll take a healthy serving of that and some Cannon fire, too. And hey, if Tim Wright can come in, learn the system, be the good kind of Rutgers, and be 75% of Hernando, plus not be murdery? It’s a win. A surprise win. A bittersweet win. But perhaps a necessary win for the Pats.
I’m gonna go have a 16 ozer for Mankins. You guys GFY, and let’s go Pats!
Doods, doodettes, Supahfans, Pats fanimals and the like…this is a real casting call from my friend Christine.
