I have a little ongoing thing to see how much stuff I can win off of soft drink contests during the summer (while I have access to free drinks). SO far this year I've gotten: 20oz. Mountain Dew (2), Surge 6-pack (2), and a Surge bucket hat. Last year I won the Surge contest like 30 times... It was insane.
