Recently discovered photographic evidence (see above) conclusively demonstrates that, way back in the 1980s, L played high school hockey. Which inspired me to do a contest slash giveaway.
Here's how to play:
1. Stare at the photo.
2. Figure out which one is L
3. Leave a comment by midnight-ish Tuesday, February 2 with your guess. (see how I've numbered the jerseys for your convenience)
4. If you get it right, you'll be in the running for one of two(!) GRAND PRIZES , namely, a $25 gift certificate to Amazon.com
One entry per day per person.
Note that since these are online gift certificates, the contest is open to everyone, everywhere and that if you win, all you'll need to supply me with is an email address.
And if you need a hint to which of these hockey gods is L: He's the one that's so hot that you wonder if they really needed a zamboni® to melt the ice.
eta: Just to make it a little easier. So far (that is, as of comment #5) no one has guessed correctly. If you've already guessed and gotten it wrong, feel free to try again.
edited even more to add: And, in case it wasn't clear (which it obviously wasn't), when I said hot what I actually meant was "hot." As in the guy you'd most like to have sitting next to you in AP Chemistry. So you could copy off his paper during tests.
Another hint: As of right this very minute -- 6:10 am on February 1 or febrúar 2010 06:10, if the Icelandic thing is still up -- only one person has guessed correctly. Remember, you get one guess per day. So, even if you've already guessed once, keep trying!
