So we all get 209720469720469 spam messages a day so it's only by sheer coincidence that I read this email that I got today, especially considering the subject was "Congratulations!" which generally means it is some sort of notice informing me of a new enlargement pill or fantastic mortgage rates. But not this email. Upon looking more closely at the address, it's from marketingassistant@tennisaustralia.com.au and telling me that for signing up for the AO email list I won a prize.

Unfortunately one of the parts of the prize are 2 grounds passes :bigcry: since I don't live in Victoria that they'll give me more AO goodies instead. lol

Heck I was just signing up for an email list LOL

This is the second time I unknowingly entered a tennis contest an won... I should've started this sooner LOL!!!

LMFAO I swear, I have never won an online contest by filling out a form before, never ever. In fact the only thing I HAVE won were concert tickets several years ago from the radio.

as for the smelly.. LMFAO b/c it's what everyone asks/talks about LOL!! Everyone wants to smell it and no it does not smell, not anymore anyway lol. It's not the same as the style he wore all summer long so it was probably lying around in an office somewhere before I got it ;)

and I could not be paid enough to get my nose near that shoe, lmao. I don't give a pile of rat vomit that Andy wore it...the point is that someone wore it for athletic purposes...yech. Cool thing to win but I'd be handling it with latex gloves, lmfao. *shudders*

LMAO well I'm pretty confident that it was worn long enough ago so that anything remotely gross is dead. And the outside is pretty clean except for the court scruff on the bottom lol. It's at home now anyway so no one's touching it lol. I'm trying to find some plastic case thing to put it in but I can't seem to find what I'm looking for :(

lmfao...i bet when you DO find it it'll cost a fortune. It would still disturb me that shit was alive in that thing at one point, lol.

on Andy's site in the Community forums they have the Match Report and the photo threads. You can post there and if they pick you, you win a prize that appears to always be signed by Andy. A few days after the DC tie against Slovakia I was bored so I wrote a long-winded piece about Andy there and how he fought through injury and ended up having to sacrifice playing in tournaments for himself, etc, yada yada yada and I won for that month and my prize was an autographed (worn) shoe lol

I sort of feel bad because a lot of the people who post there are #1 a lot younger than I am and #2 not from the US and thus don't speak English as a first language. So I probably had an advantage because I've college English classes (and for $25,000 a year I should damn well write better than either a 15 yr old or someone who doesn't speak English that well LMAO).... but anyway yea. That's the story, in a rather large nutshell.

You know, I had posted that gross pic last night, then completely forgot about it, went to bed, got up, went to work, started eating breakfast at my desk and opened up this forum to cruise for a bit and what do I see? A digusting, vile picture of the ugliest pair of feet ever!! Ugh. I think I just offended myself. I don't do that often. :silly:
