We’ve published the top five submissions and a couple of bonus submissions in our Pittsburgh Penguins hypothetical GM for a Day contest. Now it is your turn to pick a winner who will receive fabulous prizes.
First, let’s give a little stick tap to 11-year-old Fiona, whose submission elicited compliments and encouragement on social media and in the comments section. Fiona didn’t answer the pressing questions around the Penguins but she didn’t need to go that route. Her honesty about her favorite players reminded a lot of us about the wide-eyed kid inside all of us that makes this fun.
Well done, kiddo. Call us when you’re ready for a job! Read Fiona’s submission here.
Voting will conclude at 1:00 p.m. Thursday. The winner will be given their choice of a $25.00 Redbeard’s gift certificate, one of my personal bobbleheads and the option to participate in one of our Penguins live chats.
Real quickly—check out the Day 1 contestants here.
Here are the Day 2 contestants.
So, here goes. There aren’t a lot of rules. Basically, we’re in charge of this and we’ll do everything we can do make sure it’s fair. The disclaimers seem obvious: This has no correlation real or implied with the Pittsburgh Penguins organization. This is for fun and we’re throwing in a little prize to make it fun.
