2x Winner via The Facebook: Thanks USAT & USYS

I like movies. I like winning. So in the spirit of 21 & The Social Network and I'm happy to declare Winner, Winner, Chicken Dinner upon winning two facebook contests. How exciting!

To celebrate hitting 50,000 facebook fans USA Triathlon offered fans a special prize for liking its post. Over 1,000 people liked the status and USA Triathlon selected 50 fans as winners, including me (ask 21's main lead Ben to do the math for me...it should be easy).

I've been using my prize, two pint glasses, to celebrate. This weekend we celebrated with Coach Nick and his team's fifth straight Div. 2 State HS boys swimming title! (Congratulations to Neil also!)

I also won a soccer coaching kit thanks to United States Youth Soccer Association and Sports Authority. To enter you posted your favorite drill or lesson and you got extra entries if people liked your idea. There were 83 comments, some with a bunch of likes. I wrote about a drill I do with disc cones, Star Wars-style defense and body contact, it's really fun.

This is what I won: 8 bibs, 6 cones, 2 size four soccer balls, 12 water bottles, 1 clipboard and a large ball bag! Cool!

I've coached boys and girls from age 5 to 17 at several levels. I'm currently coaching our Kindergartner's team the U7 Lions. We start up again in early April. Gooooooooo Lions!

Questions for You:
- Have you won something on Facebook?
- What sports have you played or coached?
- Thoughts on 21 or The Social Network? As a college rower, it was fun to see the rowing element in The Social Network. As a Wisconsin rower (the one in red), I got to row with the Radcliffe lightweight 4 at Eastern Sprints. I was the Wisco spare and the Radcliffe stroke had a 104 fever--so I filled in, what a fun opportunity.
- And yes, I had to check facebook before going to bed after finishing The Social Network...

Yay to winning free stuff! :)

I loved Social Network. Thought it was awesome!

And I played soccer and basketball growing up. Love the coaching kit that you got for soccer!
