Droid Life Reader Headed to Super Bowl XLV, Wins Verizon’s Extreme NFL Experience Contest

This story is just too cool not to share with everyone.  Do you all remember Verizon’s Extreme NFL Experience contest that we wrote about back in November?  You know, the one that would send 2 people to Super Bowl XLV in Dallas for 4 nights, give them round trip tickets, game tickets, ground transportation, $250 in spending cash and a bunch of swag?  A Droid Life reader won it!

David from Pittsburgh texted from his Droid just as the contest had asked and will now take his son down to Texas to enjoy this year’s Super Bowl.  Fitting that they are from Pittsburgh and that they are huge sports fans, right?  Congrats guys!  And have a blast!

And to brag for just a moment, that puts the Droid Life winner total up to at least 7 or 8 I think.  We’ve had multiple Droid X scavenger hunt winners, multiple R2-D2 hunt winners, a Galaxy Tab contest winner, an awards show winner, and now this.  I guess reading DL pays off?

    Awesome. Congratulations.

  • jbeyer

    I gotta say a couple of things, because my brother is the one who won this thing… first of all, there’s just not a better phone than the Droid. Second… GO COWBOYS!! =D

    Have a good time!

  • DL = Dumb

    No, stupid, taking part in contests pays off. Don’t imply that DL has any part of people winning other business’ promotions.

      you suck end of story

    • luvnmyd2

      1. IF DL didn’t exist, I wouldn’t have this awesome opportunity. 2. IF DL wasn’t so awesome and didn’t post up this contest, same result as #1. 3. IF DL wasn’t on the ball with the CONSTANT updates, info etc…..we’d all be 1 year behind on the information you currently retain…or at least assume you retain being that you’re on this site……or did I totally misread your post? I give all the credit to 1. my brother tipping me to DL. 2. DL being DL:) 3. VZN/Motorola

        Be even COOLer if the whole ‘outdoors’ Superbowl experiment catches on… Lambeau in February for the Lombardi, now that would be nICE!! ;-)

    I’m thinking DroidLife should sponser a “Xoom” competition.

  • luvnmyd2

    This is an amazing opportunity for me to be able to share this experience with my son! I’m very thankful for my brother John informing me of his obsession with Droid Life:) and thankful to DL for posting the contest! I was skeptical at first…and found the contest buried on the Big Red’s website.
    I know there is not much love for the Steelers…I guess all I can say is that this will be our 7th ring:)
    Thank you Droid Life and VZN

    • The Observer

      Bath houses, men’s rooms, and on television.

    Steelers? Who the hell are they?

    The Packers already won, they are just being respectful and beating one more team for the fans.

  • Mii

    That’s a committed fan going all that way to watch their team loose.
