If we, Highlowaha readers, have learned anything over the past eight weeks, it is that "foodies" are every bit as much fun as we are... and just as competitive!
For eight weeks Kate and Lauren have been incorporating our secret ingredient into their scrumptious recipes. Not even the NFL could write mid-seasons standings better than ours. Kate 5: Lauren 4. Neck and neck they've been ALL season long.
As tempting as it was to let Heather, with all of her Drum Corp experience, entertain us during Highlowaha's Half Time Fun we decided this week should be about showcasing the fan base behind our favorite foodies - Kate, Captain of Team Danko Defenders and Lauren, Captain of the Holiday Armadillos.
Each morning a challenge will be presented to Team Danko Defenders and Team Holiday Armadillos. Teams must complete the challenge, earning a maximum of 3 points per day. Two points will be awarded to the team with the greatest participation and 1 point is awarded to the team whose entry for the days is voted best/most creative/or whatever the criteria for that day might be. Current standings will be posted each morning when you visit our site.
Let's get on with it...
Highlowaha has a long standing relationship with Ray Wattson, the snarky, but fun loving light bulb you see partying in the picture above. Ray is a busy guy. Months ago he started a "Ray"volution, spreading the word across the land - SHINE (dammit). Whatever you are, doctors, lawyers, and such (in the words of Willie Nelson) be GREAT at it. Don't waste time being mediocre when, with a little bit of effort on your part, you can radiate... or shall I say "Raydiate."
One glance in our GalleRay is all the proof you need to know that Ray puts his money where his mouth is. He doesn't just trudge through life. Ray celebrates his way through life and he doesn't just celebrate... Ray becomes one with the celebration. At Christmas he was Jingle All the Ray. At Thanksgiving, Rayflower; first day of school, CRayola; Halloween, Count Raycula; spectator at the summer Olympics, VictoRay; St. Patrick's Day, Erin-go-Bray; National Best Friend Day, CompadRay; and he's even a little romantic, making an appearance as AmoRay on Valentine's Day. Ray shines at celebrating!
Today is your turn to shine, Team Danko Defenders and Team Holiday Armadillos. Roll up your sleeves and jump into our community by getting acquainted with one of our favorite and most long standing members - Ray Wattson.
Gather as many of your team members as possible. Have each submit an appropriate name for Ray, based on the picture in which he is shown above. Sure you could use something obvious like Green Ray Packer or Oakland Rayder Fan, but you if you're hanging out with the likes of Kate and Lauren, I know you can do better than that!
Remember, the team that has the most entries earns two points. The team with the winning Ray name wins 1 point. And, the person with the winning name wins a $20.00 gift card to Starbucks! Facebook, Twitter, phone, fax, text, or smoke signal... whatever your method, gather your team and let's get this week's show on the road.
Signing off until tomorrow...
