Bell Centre contest (A not so serious thread)

All you guys who have been to the Bell Centre, I have a question:

You know that contest where they have the blue and red car "race" against eachother in a circle around the Bell centre side screens.

I wonder if all the people in the end section can ever win that.

For example, section 107, or the Molson Ex zone etc.. these sections are divided in half. Half blue, half red. These sections can therefore never win that prize.

has anybody thought of this?

Discuss.

I dont know you could be correct but how would they give the prize to half of the entire crowd?
You could be right they could choose just one section of the winning side, thus making it impossible for 107 to win.

The way it works is after one side wins, they announce a winning row/section # on that side. All the people in that row of the section win something (I believe it's an Esso gift certificate or something).

Exaclty. So how would people in on of the end sections win. Their sections are half blue half red.

They're screwed.

I demand justice! I demand retribution!

Someone must hang for this!

Maybe with all the beer drinking in the Molson Ex zone, people already have enough free gas? Just a thought...

Yep, exactly. You get a $5 gift certificate from Esso, and a key chain with mascot (it's the tiger, right?). I won last year, but kept the gas, and ditched the cheesy key chain

Yesterday, I was at the game and I was in section 321 A. The row just in front of me (321 FF) won a prize. They all got a little bag with some gifts certificate or something.

From the FAQ section of the Bell Center website

Question

During contests whereby the winner is identified by seat color designation and section, what happens with the sections that contain both Red and Blue seating.


Answer

Tell that dancing banana to stop stirring up ****. We know where he lives and works.

Oh well I just want those things to end to get back to the game! Like their damn Energie Cardio and Metro $$ contests!!

Those contests actually have nothing to do with interrupting the game. What interrupts the game are the league-mandatory TV timeouts at 4-minute intervals. Rather than have people just sitting around doing nothing for 2 minutes, they put together silly little contests.
