This is it! The beginning of the #BestCopTVShow Tourney. Of course, there are some rules and we’ll get to all that boring stuff. I’d much rather talk about the prizes!
Oh, dear Lord, the prizes.
To be fair, I should simply say “THE prize”. I have additional feelers out on the interwebs for other sponsors, but at the moment, the incredibly kind and gracious folks over at Uniform Stories have provided a grand prize of a 16GB iPhone 5S!
That’s a $200 value, friends!
Now for the rules:
This is the way we’ll work it. The whole tournament will start on June 30, 2014 and end on July 30, 2014. Since there are 64 shows and since I didn’t want the damn thing to last for three months, it was necessary for the first two weeks to put four shows against one another.
You read that right. We’re going from 64 to the Savory 16! There are four divisions, much like March Madness.
Only I have better names:
Dunkin’ Donuts Division
Krispy Kreme Division
Tim Horton’s Division
Sense a theme?
I will post twice a day in my various and sundry homes on the interwebs: here, FB, Twitter, and Pinterest. Between the 30th of June and the 16th of July, the posts will hit at 0700 hrs Left Coast time and 1500 hrs Left Coast time. I will close the voting eight hours after each post. For example, the 0700 hrs post will close at 1500 hrs and the 1500 hrs post will close at 2300 hrs.
The exception to that will be the 4th of July weekend. There will only be one post on the 4th, 5th and 6th. Those will post at 1000 hrs and voting will close at 1800 hrs.
The Savory 16 will be determined after the 0700 hrs post on July 9th closes at 1500 hrs. Moving forward, we will move to a head-to-head scenario. Again, these will be twice a day until the Eclair 8 is determined on July 17th. From the 18th through the 30th (when the champion is crowned), there will only be one head-to-head post each day at 1000 hrs.
Yeah, yeah, I hear you.
Each day, I will make a list of commenters. Each of those names will be entered into a random name selector and one name will be selected as the winner of the day. At the end of the voting each week, I will enter all the names that won during the week and one will receive an entry into the grand prize drawing! At the end of the tournament, I will enter the names that were selected each week and one will win the grand prize… a 16GB iPhone 5S!
I am working on additional prizes for the daily/weekly winners as well. These may or may not include motor wings from my actual uniform and possibly signed MC baseball cards featuring yours truly.
That about wraps up the basics!
Voting starts at 0700 hrs Left Coast!
