Two Winners of the Sony MP3 Player

>> Wednesday, March 09, 2011

Last week, I asked everyone to leave a comment to be entered in a Sony Walkman MP3 Player giveaway. I had 2 that needed to find a home:

The entire set-up (controls and storage built-in to the ear pieces)

The 2 MP3 players sitting in my kitchen, ready to be given away

So there were 233 comments in the giveaway. Many people (actually, the majority of people) earned "extra" entries by following me on Twitter, following my blog or subscribing to the RSS feed, and / or becoming a fan of Steve in a Speedo on Facebook.

So once all the extra entries were tallied, there were 562 numbers in the drawing!

Here are the 16 pages of entries with numbers given to each person (either 1, 2, 3, or 4 numbers, depending on if they earned extra entries or not) -

So I went to to pick a winner. I entered my variables:

I clicked on "generate," and I had my first winner:

Number 421

I clicked on "generate" again, and I had my second winner:

Number 415

Huh. Similar numbers. The early 400s were lucky I guess!....

So, who were the lucky winners? They were Tri Girl Tri from NJ and Chris from Utah! Please shoot me an e-mail you 2 so I can get your mailing address! Thanks!

Just for the hell of it (because I like to be a real jerk sometimes), I hit generate ONE MORE TIME to see who JUST BARELY missed out on winning a MP3 player. It was number 318:

Who was #318? You'll never guess. It was Nicole, my "race buddy" from the Securian Run Half Marathon 6 weeks ago!!

Sorry Nicole! ;)

Thanks to EVERYONE who entered! I really feel bad that I can't send some goodies home with everyone! :( But, Sony hopes to be getting me a "discount code" in the next few days that I'll make sure to share with all who entered so you can get the Sony Walkman MP3 Player at a discount! I'll pass that along once I have it.

THANKS SONY for the giveaway!!

Oh, and there's one last BIGGER giveaway in the works for next week, so check back for that!

Congrats to the winners.

I have a confession to make. I found this on sale at Wal-mart for $35 last week, so I bought one. If I'd won, I would have taken it back. Since I did win, I'm opening it tonight to prep it for tomorrow's run.
