    I need your quick help with something....

    A wine company asked me and some other bloggers to have a sports thankoff in honor of Thanksgiving. We were supposed to write a blog post that answers the question, "What/who are you most thankful for in sports." The prize for winning isn't much of anything, but I never pass up an opportunity to give my appreciation that I've watched Andre Johnson play for my team.

    When that whole Randy Moss thing was blowing up, it made me sick that someone like that got so much attention for being a diva, and a player like Andre Johnson is doing all that he can to play with a messed up ankle.

    So, here's my blog post:

    Giving Thanks for Wide Receiver Andre Johnson


    The contest runs through Monday. The winner is chosen by determining who has the most blog comments or Twitter RTs that have the link and the hashtag: #reserveyournight Example here.

    I'd greatly appreciate it if you went to that blog post and left a comment. Only one comment per person counts. I think it would be really funny if Texan fans left sort of Chuck Norrisisms in the comments. You know, like "Superman wears Andre Johnson pajamas." Or just leaving a "Hail!" would help.

    I'm not sure I can win. The person who has the most blog comments right now is from NYC. But I want to make the competition at least sporting.

    I liked this comment:

    "If scientists promised to only use human cloning on Andre Johnson, then there would no longer be any debate regarding the ethics of human cloning."

    Oh, and I wanted to tell you that even though they ask for an email address, I've been assured that they don't use it for anything. And they have to ask the birthdate thing because of alcohol rules.

    #15 is a winner:

    "Andre Johnson and Chuck Norris had dinner one night @ the Downtown Aquarium, Each brought in a shark they had caught with their bare hands for the chef to make. Chuck Round house kicked his, Andre went in the water and a shark committed hari kari because giving ones life to Dre is the highest Honor."

    You're comparing Andre Johnson to Chuck Norris? Chuck would own 80.

    I don't know. If Superman and the Flash were to race to the end of space, you know who would win? Andre Johnson.

    I want to thank all of you who are helping with this.

    We've almost caught up to the NYC blogger.

    In fact, they are getting so many comments that they are planning on shutting the contest down early because they have to moderate and approve each comment and don't want to have to do that over the weekend. So please please please, get your comments in before 4pm central today (FRIDAY).

    Their comment system is totally easy and they don't do anything with your email (other than trying to deter cheating)

    Here's some of my favorite comments on AJ:

    And ouch:

    And then this made me laugh:


    Thanks again for helping with this. :spit:

    Well, I came in second in the contest. My Andre Johnson blog had more comments, but Susan had more Twitter RTs--she has more followers than me so it was pretty clear it was a longshot to win this.

    But Texan fans supported AJ nicely to the world at large and the comments of that post are smart and funny.

    So thanks to all who helped make the contest a little sporty.
