After a bunch of submissions, some great and some not so great, Rob and myself have picked a winner. It was tough, but we were able to narrow it down to a few and from there picked our favorite. After it was all said and done and the dust had settled, Will from The Momentum of Failure has walked away with a new pair of Polo Ranger Boots. To all the weeping 'Lo heads, I'm sorry.
Will's entry, which he thought so good he entered twice, was: "The first thing I'm going to do when I get my new Polo Ranger Boots is find a girl that is okay with me wearing them while we express our love for one another." Equally sincere and full of thinly veiled sexual innuendo, the entry emerged as our favorite. He really took "knocking boots" to a whole new level. The re-gifting now begins its long and arduous journey to Denver where I am sure the cookie boots have found a lovely new home.
Thanks to Rob for being cool with the contest in the first place and for providing the boots and to everyone who took the time to enter. We laughed, we cried, we scoffed and we loved every minute of it. In case you were wondering, runner-ups were:
theyuppiedilemma: "The first thing I'm going to do when I get my new Polo Ranger Boots is...throw on something chunky, hit the strip and stunt on all the haters who didn't win."
crabapplenyc: "The first thing I'm going to do when I get my new Polo Ranger boots is two chicks at the same time."
