So long Vancouver

Posted by on Sun, February 28th, 2010 at 4:32 pm

TSG has always been a fan of the Olympics. Winter, Summer – doesn’t really make a difference. I guess there’s just something reassuring in the predictability of it all. From the majestic, and apparently never-changing, sounds of the opening theme music, to the way that TV networks unfailingly divide the air time between competitive coverage, and over-produced sentimental back stories, the games are a familiar routine in times of uncertainty.

And while the events tend to range from the amusingly obscure to the outright bizarre, during these two weeks they always manage to feel like the most consequential activities in the world. Seriously, I saw friends reduced to cursing, fidgeting messes over curling!

Today we were treated to a hockey game between the United States and Canada that served as the closing event of these Winter Games – and talk about an event feeling like it was the most consequential thing in the world! While TSG and thousands of Swaggernauts enjoyed the game from the company of our facebook fan page, countless Americans, Canadians and spectators from around the world were treated to an entertaining, spirited game that featured an epic comeback by the USA, and a heroic victory goal from Sidney Crosby.

So in honor of the great game that was, and as a gesture of thanks to the Canada for hosting what was truly one of the best games in recent memory, TSG has created a special Code about you. Here’s the deal – I’ve created a Swag Code that works on any Search & Win site. The code looks like this “_forCanada”. Don’t try entering that in the Gimme box because it won’t work. You need to replace the blank space with the number of Gold Medals that the Canadian national team won in these games. In other words, if you think Canada has won only one Gold Medal, you’d enter 1forCanada. If you think they’ve won 100 of them, you’d enter 100forCanada. Got it?

The code will award you the same number of Swag Bucks as the Canadian team won! Remember, use your Swag Bucks search engine to help find the answer if you don’t know what it is.

This code will expire at 6:00 pm pst (9 pm est; 2 am gmt).

Good luck, and thanks again to our neighbors to the north for a wonderful time. Just know that American curling will be back!
