2011 Liberty Bowl Ticket Giveaway (Giveaway Ended)

Posted by Holly Whitfield | December 19th 2011 2356 0

If you want to go to the 2011 Liberty Bowl but don’t have tickets yet, we can help you with that.

One lucky sports fan will win four tickets to the Liberty Bowl and a $50 gift card to the Majestic Grille for tailgate treats.

Here’s how to enter to win:

Write a haiku about why you want to go to the game or why you love Memphis and leave it in the comments on this post. A haiku is a simple three-line poem – the first line has five syllables, the second line has seven syllables and the third line has five.

Here’s an example:

I have four tickets

to the Liberty Bowl, y’all

One of you will win.

Be as creative as you’d like – you’ve got until 11:59 p.m. on Dec. 21 to submit your entry in the comments section of this post. The winner will be picked by myself and a panel of judges (aka coworkers) on Thursday, Dec. 22.

I write about what’s going on with Memphis music, food, arts, events, sports, people, and culture. Memphians love Elvis and barbeque with a passion that must be seen to be believed, but there is so much more to this place.
