Heath Bell Twitter Ticket Contest

GOOD NEWS: I won two tickets to Saturday’s Padres game versus the Diamond backs courtesy of Heath Bell.

BAD NEWS: I can’t attend the game.

Before I get started let me point out that I thought I would be able to attend Saturday’s game. I wouldn’t of participated if I didn’t think I could make it. I thought I could. Okay. Now that I’ve got that out of the way, keep reading………

It all started at midnight on May 6th, when Heath Bell tweeted the following tweet:

Okay everybody. New ticket contest in five minutes…..for Friday and Saturdays games.

I figured, “what the heck.” It wasn’t like I was going to win. (HA!) So when Heath tweeted his next tweet……

Name my favorite Actor and Actress….Actor=2 tix for Fridays game and Actress=2 tix for Saturday. Get both, win both……..GO!

……I had no hesitation in trying to guess the answers.

I tried to guess actors that were well known. But alas, had only given two guesses when Heath tweeted again:

We have a winner for Actor….no one’s gotten Actress yet though.

Oh well. At least I tried. I was about to give up and let the other tweeps keep guessing but I decided to stay in and guess some actresses. My first guess:

Helen Hunt.

My second guess:

Ashley Judd.

Thirty seconds after I guessed Ashley Judd, the following tweet appeared on Heath’s twitter page:

We have a winner!

Hmmm……

Then the unthinkable happened. Heath tweeted one last time with the winners twitter names. (I’m @M_2012H by the way.) And the results were…….

Congrats to @NickLee51 and @M_2012H for being the first to guess Tom Hanks and Ashley Judd!

Yeah. I WON! WHOOOOOOOOO! But no. I checked my schedule and CRAAAP. There was absolutely NO way I could attend. It didn’t help my state when Heath sent me a DM. It read:

Hey dude…Congrats! I owe you 2 tix for tomorrow nights game. Shoot me a msg back with your full name as it appears on ur drivers lic.

Correction by Heath:

Actually your 2 tix are for Saturdays game.

I let Heath know that I probably wouldn’t be able to attend. His response:

Hope you can go. The tix will be there but you have to let me know what name to leave them under.

Then:

If you know you can’t go I’ll give them to the 2nd person to guess Ashley Judd….let me know.

I guess that’s fair. I mean, if I came in second and the first place winner couldn’t go I’d want the tickets to go straight to me. But it still doesn’t make me any less upset over the situation. Well, at least I’ll always be able to brag, “I once won a twitter contest from Padres closer Heath Bell.” How many people can say that? Sigh………

UPDATE!!!!

I let Heath know 100% for sure today that I wouldn’t be able to attend Saturday’s game. His response:

Thanks. Since you can’t go tomorrow let me know which game you want to go to and I’ll leave you 2 tix. Just give me at least a days notice.

That’s right! Heath will give me two free tickets to the home game of my choice. I probably won’t be able to get out to CA until the summer, but I’m definitely going now!
