Great Smokies taking it on the chin right now!

Monday, August 16, 2010

There is no room for second place. There is only one place in my game and that is first place.
-- Vince Lombardi

Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor?
-- Bluto from Animal House

It’s roughly half-time for the Coca-Cola Live Positively $100,000 recreation grant contest, and the Great Smokies, quite frankly, is still getting its butt whipped by a minor state park from Minne-so-cold.

Whoever is behind the shellacking that Bear Head Lake State Park is putting on the Smokies is well organized and well motivated. We’re staring at an upset of epic proportions!

Right now we’re down by more than 340,000 votes!

There’s still time, however. Voting ends on August 31st. If you think that the Great Smoky Mountains can put this money to good use, please take the time to vote several times.

It’s pretty interesting how much press this contest/promotion is generating for Coke. Quite a marketing coup for them….

I voted, but it doesn't look good for us.

No it doesn't....

I would assume they need the money really bad, thus the strong motivation...

Wow, I'm voting as much as I can and hope everyone else is too! That park in Minnisota must have fans at their computers 24/7 to have that many votes... Come on GSMNP fans we gotta win!
