    Contest: When Will Bruce Hit His 1st HR Of 2013?

    Not a poll.

    Pick a date, any date not already taken, that you think will be the date when Jay Bruce hits his first home run of 2013. Just for fun, not a knock on Jay, or a sign anyone is worried about his lack of power so far.

    The winner who correctly guesses the exact date, gets Chris Welsh to come to their house to give a live tech talk on how to properly howl during a Reds game.

    I'll go first.

    Congrats. Now contact FSO to give Chris Welsh your address for the tech talk

    I was hoping this would be a short lived thread.
