Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.

pass the helmet
The Super Bowl approaches on February 1st, so it’s shillin’ time here at Population Statistic. Courtesy of my blogging compadre Tara at When Tara Met Blog (who previously hooked me up with some Thanksgiving M&M’s).

This time though, you will profit from this corporate giveaway! Well, one of you, anyway. Read on:

Super Bowl parties are one of the top at-home party events of the year and have become much more than a gathering of football lovers, but a time to dissect the ads, eat party snacks and hang with friends. In fact, many people attending these parties do not necessarily love the teams playing as much as they love the excuse to get together with friends after a very cold month. So whether you are a diehard NFL fan or just want to party, Pepsi, the sponsor of the NFL Rookie of the Year, would like to offer your readers the chance to win an Ultimate Super Bowl Party Pack valued at $250 for their own at-home viewing parties!

Sweet deal, sounds like. Party Pack pictured above, consisting of:

- 1 football
- 1 beverage pail
- 1 snack helmet (my favorite!)
- 2 keychains
- 2 hats
- 2 t-shirts
- 5 Pepsi 24-pack coupons
- 5 Frito Lay coupons

Yes, you’re thinking the same thing I am: Nothing says “par-tay” like FREE KEYCHAINS! (Actually, they do look big enough to serve as drink coasters…)

But seriously, this is a legit giveaway. Pepsi is promoting its National Football League sponsorship, along with its new logos/look, dubbed “Refresh Everything”. (For the purposes of this little contest, you can disregard my previous disparaging assessment of this soda makeover — not that anyone checks my archives…)

So if you want a shot at this big-time pigskin swag, just leave a comment in the space below. I’ll randomly pick the winner on Sunday, January 25 (get your comment in by Saturday, January 24 at the latest). I’ll need a way to get in touch with you, so leave your email address where provided (don’t worry, it won’t be public). If you win, I’ll send on your mailing address to Pepsi so they can ship out the goods in plenty of time before game kickoff on February 1. And that’s that!

And in the interests of full disclosure: I’m not getting paid by Tara nor Pepsi for this. I will, however, get my own commemorative logo-emblazoned Super Bowl XLIII football for my troubles. Which I’ll probably promptly hand off to one of my little football-crazed nephews. Everybody wins!

UPDATE: I checked, and only U.S. residents are eligible to win this giveaway (yes, that means no Canadians, either). So sorry to Alex Scott, who commented below. Just when the NFL was whipping up overseas enthusiasm with those European games, too…

UPDATE 01/25/2009: AND THE WINNER IS… - I ran all 52 comments through the list randomizer at Random.org, which is as random as random can get. The one that came out on top was No. 17 by Melissa! She’s already replied back to me with her address, so the Pack will be sent on its way to her this week. Thanks to everyone for joining in.

  4. Tell me, doesn’t that football helmet look like it was meant to hold my homemade flour tortilla chips and yummy ranch, bacon, & cheese dip??? That is so cool. I admit, my hubby is a coke man, but before we married, I drank pepsi. I would love to win this for our little party! Thank you for the opportunity!

  26. Refresh me! Pepsi lover here. I have visions of snackfood dancing in my head, and into that nifty snack helmet.

    Generous giveaway. Thanks!

    Comment by Jean D. — 01/19/2009 @ 3:22 AM

  27. It’s hard to believe Superbowl is already on the way again! After the party this would get split up because I think my uncle might really want that helmet. My grandfather (83 years old in a couple weeks!) is the wearer of caps, and my high school and college kids would drink that tub full of soft drinks. What a fun prize pack.

    Congratulations to whoever wins!

  28. Pepsi sure knows how to throw together a great pack of goodies for the big game. This year looks to be a fantastic game and should make for a great party here at home.

  36. My children do all of the decorating for the Super Bowl game day. They cut out decorations, set the table up with everyone’s favorite drinks, snacks, chip, dip and food with so much pride. They would be estatic to deocrate with this package from Pepsi. Thank-you for the giveaway.
