Ok....I appreciate everyone's help in voting for my wife's flower shop. To reward those that have voted and to incent a lot more to vote I'm going to sweeten the pot.

My full size authentic Chiefs helmet complete with the Derrick Thomas style facemask is up for grabs. For every vote you help me with is 1 entry into the drawing so if you get other friends, roommates or family members to vote just post on this thread how many you got(if you get some after your original vote just go back and edit your post rather that creating another one).
I will go back to the original "Help Needed" thread to count those that have already voted as well as with everyone that posts on here after they vote.


For those that didn't see the original thread here it is:

"I could use a big favor from the Planet. My wife has a little flower shop on the downtown square. The local ABC affiliate does this awards every year where people vote for the top business in each category. It is really good exposure as some people use the list year around kinda like an Angie's List for the Indianapolis area. Just found out she is in 3rd place. With help from the Planet she might be able to win.

Thanks a ton for helping. Takes less than 10 seconds to vote.

It's not 100% accurate but the overwhelming majority show up on that page as having voted along with the time stamp. So I can tell within reason if somebody actually voted.

I voted 3 times. Once when you originally posted the thread and twice today.

Just once per email address for the entire voting process which has 2 weeks left.

You guys got us back there....We were in 1st with a big lead but the chain store had over 25 employees vote for themselves in the last day to come actually pass us by a vote or two. They have a lot of employees so their kung fu is very strong but I have a hunch that the Planet's kung fu is much stronger.

Thanks....a big pain to keep clean with two American Bulldogs and a new baby. With this flower shop chewing up nearly all of my wife's time you can guess who gets to clean this place....downsizing sounds pretty good every time I get done cleaning it. Either that or the flower business starts booming to where I can hire a weekly cleaning service. :D

Guys thanks very much for all the votes. As for those offering for me to keep my helmet I appreciate the gesture as that is pretty awesome of you. I would say that I would still put you in the drawing and if you win I would just keep it per your request...But if that happen some might think I operate as honestly as a Chicago election. So I will still put you guys in and if you win I will make you a trade. I have a mini helmet signed by Marcus Allen and I will send you that in lieu of allowing me to keep my big helmet but I still would like to send you at least that plus the little protective case that I have it in.

Thanks again

Well if you draw my name and send me anything I'll just send it back. I'm sure others will do the same. See how much of a waste of time and postage that is? Besides I won't give you my address so..... lets just win the contest for your wife and call it CP looking out for its own.

Most excellent! I like your chances of taking home the helmet if you post anywhere near that many votes.

No but I can see the user name and time stamp. So if a bunch come in all at once and you tell me you had 15 votes around the same time then it is easy to match up.

They send you a sign once you are nominated to put out and recruit people to vote for you. So not sure how recruiting people to vote for you in the social world is any different.

4 days left to get in your votes and thus your entries into the drawing for the helmet. I will try and put together the drawing this weekend.

In the final week they don't show the standing so that it is a surprise to all involved. We were in 1st place going into this week but the big chain store was very close behind(less than 5 votes).

Thanks a bunch for all your help and hopefully with a final push we can get the win.

NaptownChief
08-16-2011, 09:27 PM
Anyone else looking to get in on the helmet? If I can shake you guys down for another 25 votes I will throw in my Marcus Allen signed mini helmet in the drawing for good measure! You will have a shot at the full size authentic and the mini signed by Marcus Allen. If you can come up with multiple votes you might win them both with a little luck.

Voting ends at midnight this Friday. Drawing will take place around noon on Sunday.

NaptownChief
08-18-2011, 06:36 PM
Voting closes tomorrow. Drawing this weekend for the helmet. Voting looks really close so I would greatly appreciate it if you can throw a brother a bone and cast a last minute vote.

This helmet will look pretty damn nice on your mantle for the Chiefs games. Step up and rock the vote bitches!

Simply got his helmet. I was getting a little concerned since I hadn't heard from him but he sent me this message:

"Simply Red
I finally got the helmet, my 'ex' dumbass apartment complex NEVER let me know they had a package for me. Anyhow, that was nothing as to what i'd expected. That was so very cool of you - if you're ever in Atlanta, I'll pay for dinner. You're a kind kind person bud, ty again, SOO much - it's centered on my dresser and looks sharp!"


Thanks again to everyone for helping my wife out. I really appreciate it. I will come up with something really cool for you guys again next year.

She did. Sorry for the slow response. My life is not one of envy at the moment. Between my career, a 6 month old baby and this flower shop I'm lucky to get 5 minutes a day to even look at the internet. Business is going well but to keep expenses down and turning a profit I am working 7 days a week helping at the shop. Usually about 4 hours in the evenings, 6 hours on Fridays plus 4 to 8 hours on Saturday and Sunday. Add it all up and the sleep deprived NaptownChief is working about 70 hours a week at the moment. Maybe Occupy Wall Street can come and protest out in front of my house for being so "privileged" %(/
