When Mr. LA Sports Czar won The Assassins' Circle 2011 contest, there was only one prize he wanted: Smonk. You see, MLASC narrowly lost out to Mr. F / fanerman in Smonkstakes, a bitter loss in a marathon contest over which MLASC has never been able to get.
And so, having won AC2011 in a sweet guns-a-blazin' duel, MLASC tweeted us immediately:
@sosgsosg I want Smonk for my prize. Make it happen.
So SoSG Orel and I got together to think about the prize we wanted to send Mr. LA SC, and started laughing about it over three or four glasses of scotch--and came up with this idea for a prize: SMOCK.
Like Smonk, SMOCK comes with a cute smile:
And he even has the SoSG logo tattooed on him:
And comes with a letter with instructions on how to care for Smock!
Mr. LA SC wrote us an email reply:
I...love it. (cries)
(We also included a Dodgers 2011 Media Guide with SMOCK, by the way. Come on, we aren't THAT cruel.)
Congratulations again to Mr. LA SC for winning the AC2011, as well as for his sense of humor. Onward to the next inane SoSG contest!
