Bleacher Report Launches "Humor Bowl" Competition

Site Writers Square Off Around All Things Super Bowl for $100 NFLShop.com Certificate

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - January 30, 2008) - Bleacher Report, the Open Source Sports Network™, recently launched its "Humor Bowl" competition coinciding with NFL Super Bowl XLII. The editorial promotion asks fans to share their most humorous stories regarding the upcoming big game. The "Humor Bowl" campaign can be viewed at: http://bleacherreport.com/sections/Humor%20Bowl.

The subject matter is not limited to just this year's New York Giants/New England Patriots match up: topic range includes any Super Bowl throughout history, or individual takes on Super Bowl culture, parties, betting, tailgating, and articles poking fun at the over-the-top media coverage of all things Super Bowl.

The winner will walk away with more than bragging rights, as the writer who pens the story that receives the most hits wins a $100 NFLShop.com gift card.

"The 'Humor Bowl' is the perfect way to showcase the diverse -- and often hilarious -- creative instincts of Bleacher Report's community of writers," said Alexander Freund, co-founder and Community Director of Bleacher Report. "After reading all these great articles, I laughed so hard I almost pulled a hamstring."

Entries can be submitted at: http://bleacherreport.com/articles/new, and should be tagged with "Humor Bowl" to be sure they are properly accounted for in the contest.
