Two great bloggers/trading partners are holding contests that commence this weekend. You should participate in them very much.
First is the inimitable Jim at garvey cey russell lopes who is having a giveaway for Steve Garvey's birthday on Sunday. Who can wish Steve a Happy Birthday the awesomest? You better believe I'm going to try. Go check it out here.
There's also the irreplaceable Kerry at Cards on Cards who is having a contest that's all about your college football knowledge. It's a Bowl game pick 'em, and if you've never done one, it's easy and fun. Plus I'm going to beat you horribly. You can view the contest here.
