Win Suns-Heat tickets as VotS giveaway week continues


Yesterday, we unveiled our cufflinks giveaway, in which you can win free Phoenix Suns cufflinks by guessing how many treys the Suns drill tonight in Miami.

Now we’re giving you the chance to actually go to that ESPN-televised matchup against the Heat if you can, you know, take your talents to South Beach tonight, and with great seats, too.

To win all you have to do is answer the following question:

Name all the former Suns players who currently play for the Heat and all the former Heat players who play for the Suns.

That’s it and you can win a pair of Suns tickets in either Row 3 or Row 24, courtesy of StubHub, where you can always get great seats for any game or event.

This contest will be first-come, first-served. The first two people to e-mail a correct response to mschwartz at valleyofthesuns.com will win the tickets.

Ready, set go!

I also want to remind you to enter our cufflinks giveaway. You have until 5 p.m. MST tonight. Same rules apply as specified earlier, even with Al McCoy missing his first trip in 38 years. No word yet on whether pinch-hit play-by-play guy Jeff Munn will give McCoy’s traditional “Shazam!” call in his absence.

With as many entries as we have thus far, there will almost certainly need to be a tiebreaker round tomorrow against the Magic. I already have that question lined up.

For context, the Suns are averaging a league-best 10.0 three-pointers per game whereas Miami yields 6.2 per contest, although they did a poor job against Ray Allen last week. I’ll take a guess just for bragging rights and say the Suns knock down eight.

UPDATE: Winners found

Thanks to all who entered, but we have found a pair of winners in the Miami area who can go to the game. The answers, of course, are Eddie House and James Jones for the Heat and new signee Earl Barron for the Suns. Hopefully we will be doing tickets giveaways for home games in the future so more of you can get involved.

    I would if I could. I saw this right after it was posted, so I’m sure I could have won, but there’s no way I can take my talents to South Beach tonight.

    Btw, side note, every time I take a dump, I make sure to announce to anyone who doesn’t want to know that I’m “taking my talents to South Beach.”

    Thank you, LeBron James, for being one of the most foolish athletes of all time. It has given me tons of joy so far. Keep the quotes coming.

    Phoenix hast to play the variation of 2-3 zone and not allow James or Wade to drive to the lane in order to win this game. Miami has to be force to become a shooting team which is possible as long as you contain Bosh and whatever Center they throw in. It is also time to…UNLEASH THE BARRON!!!…

  • JJ

    James Jones and Eddie House were once on the Suns.

    No one on the Suns was previously on the Heat.

    Beat me to the punch.

    What JJ said.

    I was going to say the same.

    Kudos to JJ the fastest Blog in town.

    Guys, please e-mail me as stated in the post. I have to delete your answers here because what fun is trivia when the answers are posted in the comments? I already have been e-mailed a few correct responses, but I am awaiting confirmation that they are in Miami. As stated in the second paragraph, you need to be able to use the tickets to win.

    I will keep these guesses because they are incorrect.

  • B. Cray Z.

    How do we send these e-mails to you Michael, please give us a clue.

    Thank you very much!!!!

    MSchwartz at ValleyoftheSuns.com, replace the at with @ (have to write it that way so auto spambots don’t get it). We have a few entries, and I’m just confirming that they indeed can attend the game. If they can’t then it will go to the next person.
