In just one short month, the biggest game in professional football will take place. (Because the league that sponsors this game strictly enforces its trademark on the name of this game I can’t actually say the name of the game in this post (the name of the game does rhyme with “Cooper Dole”). For decades, men from all over the U.S. (and even world) have gathered around their televisions to watch two teams battle it out for the title of best football team in America.
As with most communal events, rituals and traditions have developed around the Su** Bo**. Su** Bo** parties with a smorgasbord of food and drinks, pre-game pick-up football games, or just visting a local bar to take in the Big Game are just a few examples of these Bowl of Superness Rituals.
While watching the Big Game from your favorite man chair with man friends is nice, wouldn’t be even cooler to watch the game live and in person? Well, thanks to Dockers® you now have a chance. Interested? I thought so. Read on.
Dockers® is bringing manliness back with their new Wear the Pants™ campaign. (Make sure to read their man-ifesto. AoM fans will definitely appreciate it.) To help kick it off, they’re giving away 2 FREE tickets to one of the manliest events of the year: the 44th annual professional football championship (rhymes with Blooper Toll). One lucky Art of Manliness reader will receive two tickets for premium stadium seats at the professional football championship game in Miami, FL on February 7, 2010. Each ticket is valued at $1,200 so total value of the prize is $2,400. Wowza!
Note: The prize does NOT include travel to or accommodations in Miami. So if you win the tickets, you’ll have to take care of airfare and hotel costs yourself.
