TSJ has always believed in the power of giveaways–and in our kickass readers the past few months. As our way of giving back for the holidays, we’re rolling out our biggest giveaways yet with our 12 Days of Giveaways free shit blowout. Every weekday for the next few weeks, we’ll be giving away everything from DVDs and books to gadgets and furniture for you to stuff your own stocking. Keep your eye out for the daily post to see how you can win hundreds of dollars worth of freebies.
Who says getting older has to suck? Yeah, sure, your memory starts to fade and everything gets a little saggier, but think of all the advantages! You basically have a free pass to yell at teenagers whenever and wherever, which always feels good. 10:30 doesn’t seem like such a ludicrous time to end McDonald’s breakfast. You’re at the peak of your MILF game. Mid-life crisis? More like mid-life awesomeness.
Today’s giveaway celebrates all the unique perks getting a little older can bring: try your hand in the comments and you could win the first season of TNT’s Men of a Certain Age on DVD.
Okay, so Men of a Certain Age doesn’t exactly paint middle age as a cakewalk in the pie park. Ray Romano plays a slightly neurotic 40-something whose dreams of becoming a pro golfer became dreams of owning and running a party store. Andre Braugher is an overstressed husband and father who works as a car salesman at his dad’s dealership. And Scott Bakula (ironically!) plays a still-struggling-to-make-it actor. (Just kidding, Bakula. You were great in, uh, Quantum Leap. Probably.)
But if you’re jonesing for a funny, down-to-earth look at the unique bonds among three men approaching mid-life, this show’s for you. Plus, Everybody Loves Raymond, right? That wasn’t just the name of a show. Legally, everybody is required to love Raymond. Look it up.
Show your love in the comments and you could have a copy of this “miraculously good show” (according to the Los Angeles Times) in your mailbox faster than you can say “mid-life crisis.” Here’s how:
For your chance to win, friend The Smoking Jacket on Facebook (click here) and comment on this post’s item on our wall (read that part slowly and repeatedly as needed, comments should be posted ON THE FACEBOOK POST) with your favorite cast member of Men of a Certain Age and an explanation why. Then, come back here and comment on this post to inform us the deed’s been done.
A random winner gets a copy of TNT’s Men of a Certain Age: The Complete First Season on DVD. We’ll verify that you commented, so no cheating.
Giveaway closes Saturday, December 11th.
Be sure to provide a legit e-mail address when you comment so we can contact you.
Sorry, U.S. contestants only.
That wraps up week one of The Smoking Jacket’s 12 Days of Giveaways blowout! Monday, we’ll have something sweet for all those vintage mystery-show fans in the audience. Plus: MOTHERF*CKING VIDEO GAMES, SON! And hundreds of dollars in other great prizes. It’s a holiday miracle! (Actually, it isn’t, we’re just awesome.)
