Despite a loss by the Steelers, we still got quite a few very good entries for our haiku contest.
One reader asked “what do haiku contest winners win?” Well, the contest has basically been for bragging rights. However, because he asked the question, I am going to try to get a sponsor for the contest from now on. If I’m successful, there will be a prize each week.
With that thought in mind, the winner of this week’s contest is going to win a copy of the book “The Ones Who Hit the Hardest” by Chad Millman and Shawn Coyne. It’s a great book that belongs on the bookshelf of any Steelers fan.
Because the game was played on Halloween night, I gave special bonus points for any entries that were able to incorporate a Halloween theme into their haiku.
So without further ado, here are this week’s winners:
Our third place haiku was submitted by Fred Cole.
Are you kidding me
Where was the number one D?
We’re better than that
Excellent haiku. It might have even won, but it didn’t have a Halloween theme.
In second place was Jim. He submitted this exceptional Halloween haiku.
Spooky in the Dome
Saints blitzed early and often
BA was surprised
And this week’s prize winning entry was submitted by Fred Cole (that’s right, Fred placed twice this week). Fred’s winning entry was the following:
On Hallows Eve night
Steelers got an awful fright
The Saints outplayed them
As much as we’d all like to make excuses for the loss, Fred hit the nail on the head. The Saints simply outplayed our beloved Steelers.
Congratulations, Fred. Please go to the “Contact us” tab on SteelersToday.com and leave us a message with your mailing address so we can send you your prize. Or, if you prefer, send us a private message on our Facebook page.
Thanks, and congratulations.
