Now the deal. For helping spread the word about Physicians Night (and really, can you not like your doctor?), OhioHealth has given me the privilege of helping distribute two groups of four tickets to tomorrow's Columbus Blue Jackets game. (CBJ v. Chicago Blackhawks, puck drops at 1PM) No strings attached - I get your names and pass them along to OhioHealth, who will make the tickets available at the Nationwide Arena ticket office will-call window.The February 18 game is an OhioHealth night to celebrate OhioHealth Physicians. Our main messaging to fans is, “Who says checking has to stay on the ice? Get your check-up off the ice by teaming with OhioHealth. You’ll have access to MORE hospitals, MORE care sites, MORE healthcare experts and MORE physicians!” Fans can search for an OhioHealth physician at http://ohiohealth.com/findadoctor. During the game, fans will learn about OhioHealth physician stats.
So put your creativity caps on, kids.
To be eligible to win a block of four tickets, do the following:
1. Write a Columbus Blue Jackets-related haiku and post it as a comment to this blog post.
Haiku, as I'm sure you know, are three-line poetry known for their syllable count:
- The first line has five syllables.
- The second line has seven syllables.
- The third line has five syllables.
You can be funny, serious, snarky, whatever. You can write about your favorite player, the state of the team, that crap-bag game back in November...again, anything you want. Just make sure the theme of the haiku is the Columbus Blue Jackets.
You should feel free to post the haiku anonymously because...
2. After you post the haiku, EMAIL me the same haiku at darkbluejacket [at] sbcglobal [dot] net and include your name in the subject line. That way, I will be able to easily identify winners.
I have to get the two winner names to OhioHealth by 4PM today (February 17, 2012). Thus, the contest will be open until 3:30PM.
Winners will be judged on a purely subjective basis by yours truly, who may or may not consult others in determining which CBJ haikus stand above all others. Winners will be acknowledged by reply emails, and their haikus will be featured in a blog post that will come after the deadline.
As I finish typing, it's 9:10AM. That means you have 6 hours to compose three lines...a measly seventeen syllables. Surely you can do it.
GO! And good luck!
