UPDATE TWO 12.26 - Contest # 3 : Trout, Golden Trout and the Tiger Who Would End Up Being Named MVP

It's contest once more. Wasn't planning on doing another one till the new year but what the hell. Up for grabs are 1 2013 Bowman Base Trout and it's golden parallel twin and then one gold parallel of Miguel Cabrera. I'm going through my extras so there probably be a couple more cards added. No promises though.

Once again, the same rules apply to win. Have to join the blog and you have to RT on twitter. Good luck to all. Considering its Christmas week a little adjustment as I will post only one question per day ( excluding Christmas day ) till there is a winner. No multiples during the day this time around. Here is the first question.

QUESTION # 1 : What TWO specific things do Drew Butera and Jamey Carroll share in common? A small clue is one is obvious while the other is not. Good Luck 

A slight issue that I guess I caused as I didn't know there were actually three things that the two players had in common and one person tweeted me the answer but I didn't see it because I didn't follow them and Twitter has the stupid "rule" that you can't see tweets unless you follow them. Literally within a minute another person left a response on the blog that the tweet went out. You are both correct and even though I told the blog entry person they won the first question. So I am making a executive decision to be fair and to award them both a point but to also say that OTHER participants need to get FIVE points to win but they only still need FOUR. I am trying to be fair to everyone and remember each question is weighted so if you get the next two right you win anyways with 5 points. Sorry for the mix up and I hope to never have that happen again. 

The answers I was looking for were they both played for the Dodgers and Twins and were called upon to be a spot reliever. The one thing I didn't know was that they were both born in the same town. Again, my bad.

Current Standings :

Valarauko - 1 Point
Kyle Brown - 1 Point

I am also adding one more card for now to the batch in the form of a 2013 Bowman Chrome mini of Corey Seager. I have a lot of them. LOL

Now onto the next question

QUESTION # 2 : What am I standing next to and I am not talking about the patch of grass? This questions is worth 2 points

CLUE : Point of Interest in City of Los Angeles

Valarauko aka Stalking PMS correctly answered "Angel's Flight" which is located in Downtown Los Angeles. The picture was taking during the 2011 Scavenger Hunt that I participated in. That's if anyone cares.
= )

So the updated standings are now :

Valarauko - 3 Points
Kyle Brown - 1 Point

Valarauko can wrap it up with the correct answer to the next question and with that here we go.

QUESTION # 3 : What California restaurant was this photo taken at? Two clues are that it is a city the Dodgers have played in ( notice the jersey of my table mate ) and the hats are a clue. Good luck to all.


  1. Dick's Last Resort, in San Diego.
    Home of the NSFW matchbooks.

    1. You are correct but you are the second one to answer. Great place to visit. Always a fun time.
