How’s this for an odd coincidence—we’re publishing two posts today that both involve Bankers Life Fieldhouse, have nothing else to do with one another, and don’t mention the Indiana Pacers even once? Stranger things have happened, but it is an interesting situation. The other post involved the Big Ten Hoops Day 5K, while this one has to do with some of the best tennis players who ever played the game.
If you’re a big tennis fan, you may already be aware that Bankers Life Fieldhouse is playing host to the PowerShares QQQ Challenge on Valentine’s Day. It’s a fun way for tennis players like Jim Courier, Mark Philippoussis, and Ivan Lendl to break out the racquets and entertain the crowds again. You have an opportunity today, however, to win the opportunity to spend Valentine’s with these very famous tennis players who used to be at the top of the world rankings.
Click here and you’ll be taken to the Champions Series Tennis Facebook page. Once there, comment with your Valentine’s message to your favorite tennis player. Whether Jim Courier is the only name you recognize from the sport, you want to write a sonnet to Ana Ivanovic, or you want to confess your undying love for Roger Federer, write your comment and you could be the one picked as the winner to meet and greet with the pros on Valentine’s Day.
Just keep these two last points of emphasis in mind. First of all, they are going to pick a winner on Friday, January 10, so you have to get your message in today. Second, we are not connected with this contest. Writing your message in our comments section may be amusing to us and our other Cheapsters, but it will NOT enter you in the contest. Make sure to follow the link, and we’ll be rooting for you to win.
