Having been the beneficiary of a PIF, I  accept GOODPENS challenge and offer this translucent (nearly opaque) blue demonstrator Ahab.  I've just never warmed to this pen and hope the next recipient has better luck than me.  The winner of the pen will be whoever submits the closest guess to the total number of hits by both teams over the three game series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Chicago Cubs this weekend.  In the unlikely event of a tie, the first entry prevails.  US postage paid.  Entries will be accepted until game time - 1:20 p.m. CDT, Friday, 9/15

Good luck and GO CUBBIES!

Woah. Cool challenge! Can the consolation prize be an Italian beef sandwich? Or some Pequad's? I'm marrying into a Chi-town family although we live in NC. We have to make the trip every few years. Go Cubs!!!! (An entry will be posted after my partner gets back to me. He'd be so miffed if I left him out. ;)

PLEASE NOTE CHANGED TERMS!!

 

I hope the underwhelming lack of interest (as I write this, there have been zero entries!) is due mainly to many people not having seen the post.  To make sure there are as many as possible given a chance, I'm changing the terms of the contest slightly - instead of the total number of hits over the course of the three game series in Chicago this weekend, it will now be the total number of hits from the Cubs vs. Cards series in St. Louis running from 9/25 - 9/28 with entries accepted until 7:00 p.m. CDT, Mon. 9/25/17

This is my daughter's entry as she has absconded with my very old and stained Ahab and she would like her own.

And she will have to figure out that number because I have no clue.
