Contest! (A Veritable Slice of Where's Waldo)

Tonight I will be attending the Brewers/White Sox game at Miller Park, and since I haven’t run a contest in quite a while, it’s time to roll one out once again.
Here’s the deal: My ticket package seats are in the first row of the upper deck down the first base line. At some point during the game, I will take a picture of the section immediately below mine. The object of this contest will be to correctly predict how many Ryan Braun jerseys will be visible in this photograph. The visual evidence needs to be indisputable. The name “BRAUN” and/or the number “8” must be conclusively visible to the naked eye. The person with the guess closest to the actual total will win some cards that are in some way related to the game.

As a side contest, each reader will have a chance to make a guess as to any other Brewers or White Sox jerseys being visible in the same photo. The catch: You cannot guess any members of each team’s current squad. (Molitor, Yount, and Sheets are out of bounds as well, as each of these has a high probability of appearing.) This contest will be judged independently of the Braun contest, and any winners will receive some sort of oddball item. Good luck!

I believe there will be 14 Braun jerseys in the crowd, and as for another jersey, I will take a guess and say that someone will be wearing a Fisk jersey.

7 Brauns

1 fat, shirtless idiot with White Sox hat and a 72 shaved into his back hair.

I'm going to take the Price is Right approach and guess only 1 Braun jersey visible. As for another player, I'll guess Scott Podsednik as a Brewer. Thanks for the contest!

You'll see 15 Braun jerseys in that photo. And two people will be wearing a J.J. Hardy jersey. And a dude in a Thome jersey and a dudette in a Pierzynski jersey. And there will be 27 people in blue caps. Just thought I'd throw that in.

Ben said...

I'll take 16 Brauns. And a completely random Brewer right off the top of my head... Greg Brock.

Somewhere out there is a Brewers fan who's thinking about wearing their Greg Brock jersey tonight.

Trick question. Your seats are so high, no one will be able to ID a Ryan Braun jersey.

There will be a Sox fan in a Harold Baines 1980s-era Mitchell and Ness jersey in your section though.
