Update: Congrats to Ryan ("I'll cheer louder than vuvuzela!") With that kind of claim, how could we not give you the four tickets. And you got to see a Rapids victory! Thanks for reading and playing along; there were some very good entries. ________ At 7 p.m. on Thursday night, the first-ever playoff game will be held at Dick's Sporting Goods Park (6000 Victory Way, Commerce City) when the Colorado Rapids face the Columbus (Ohio) Crew.
Four tickets just landed on the Latest Word desk and we're going to give them away.
These are "premium" seats in section 103 (on the sideline, right around the top of the penalty box). Parking is included with these tickets.
If you cannot make the game, it will be televised on ESPN2.
How to win:
In five words or less, leave a comment on why you deserve this four-pack of tickets. Make sure to leave a valid e-mail address so we can contact you if you're the winner. The contest ends at noon Thursday and you can stop by the Westword offices (969 Broadway) to pick up your tickets any time before 5 p.m. Thursday night. We will know if you try to scalp these tickets, so do not.
