Remember a month or two ago when Bobby and his converted bus were in the contest and we all voted?
Well, as you probably know, he won. We were the force that pushed him over the edge, and he was very thankful for our help.
This week is the finals, which determines who actually wins the prize. He and one other guy have been going back and forth between first and second place.
As I said last time, I hate asking people to do things like this, but Bobby is my dad's best friend and he and his bus really do deserve to win. What can I say? I have a soft spot in my heart for converted schoolbuses.
Around a thousand people read this RSS and another 600-700 check the page every day, which is more people than have voted so far in total. Can I ask you one LAST time to vote for Bobby and help him win? I would love to see him just crush the other guy.
CLICK HERE TO VOTE. Click "Bobby"
You don't have to put in your e-mail, name, or anything annoying like that. Just one click and maybe a victory comment back here. Two seconds. The voting ends Wednesday at noon CST.
Thanks! Real post coming tomorrow!
Thanks for voting, guys.
WBA: This is different for a few reasons.
1) There is no likely accurate predictor of who will win.
2) This "election" is close enough that it COULD come down to one vote.
3) In terms of percentage of the electorate, your vote is roughly 5000 times more influential. If someone gave me 5000 votes in the '08, I would have voted.
4) This takes two seconds and can be done with no inconvenience.
Granted, the stakes are a lot lower and that can be considered, but I wouldn't hold it against anyone if they decided not to vote.
First time I am commenting on your blog. Voted for Bobby for you, although I have no idea how we could really know how good they were from that video they showed!
On another note.. If you watch the previous weeks recap..
Bobby was the top vote getter of all the previous winners. And within 12 hours with help from this site from my vote bringing him 2 votes on top he now has 600 more.
So... what does this prize consist of?
Seems like a popularity contest.
But to Bobby's benefit Jason doesn't know anyone with a website : P
EDIT: Thanks guys! He won!
A real post is coming tonight, but in the meantime I have a small favor to ask.
My dad's best friend, Bobby, is a huge Texas Longhorns fan, and he built a giant bus to tailgate. The bus was originally inspired by the bus my friends and I owned, but blows ours away in every respect. It has wood floors, a huge deck with an electric roof, plasma TVs, and even a solar powered security system.
It was a few years ago, and I walked into the dining hall and sat with my friends. Pretty routine day. I was a freshman, and my first year was winding down. I was one month into my new frat and life was good.
My friend, a class senator in student government, had a piece of paper laying on the table. I picked it up and read the big title "Run for Student Government", and I immediately joked that I was dropping everything to run for President. I was just joking of course; I had seen a bunch of other Baylor freshmen run for various positions earlier in the year during freshmen elections, and I had no interest in running.
But then my friend said bluntly, "No seriously you should totally do it. The current president is an idiot, and the senators don't like him. We need someone smart." (Note I think pretty highly of the other guy, these aren't my words) That got me thinking that it would be cool to put up a bunch of posters with my name on them around campus. See, I realized nobody gave a shit about it, and every campaign I had seen didn't take advantage of that fact.
