The Florida Marlins are hosting a contest where you create a video showing why you own a rival team jersey... maybe you wash your car with it... pick up dog poop with it... but the winning video gets a tour of the stadium during pre-game practice and then watches the game in a suite filled with Marlins freebies and autographed goodies. You have till July 2nd, but it's gotta be no longer than 30 seconds and must mention buying tickets via marlins.com. Here's the official press release with all the details:
Whether fans are using the Phillies jersey to play fetch with their dog or drying their cars off with a Mets jersey after a car wash, all Marlins fans have a chance to win when they submit their video by July 2, 2009. Submissions will be taken either online at www.marlins.com or by mail to “What’s Your Reason” Video Contest Florida Marlins 2267 Dan Marino Blvd. Miami, Florida 33056.
