The Striking Truth Contest Winner Is....

Before I start, I just want to thank everyone that entered into my The Striking Truth contest. As well, everyone who helped spread the word of the contest was a great help as well. I really liked doing my first ever contest on the blog and I hope I can do more in the future. BUT, now for the real news....

Late last night we (and by we I mean me, but we sounds much more formal) closed the entries for the contest and took all the entries and ran them through That way I had no influence over who won the pair of tickets since I did have a couple of friends enter the contest. Here's what we came up with:


So, congrats to Heada Cooper!! You won a pair of tickets to see the world premiere of The Striking Truth on Friday night!!!

For those of you that didn't win, I'm sorry, but I have some good news for you. If you still want to attend the screening there are tickets on sale, and I have a promo code for you to get a 20% discount! Just head over to Ticketmaster (use that link) and enter the promo code: TWITST

Congrats again to Heada and I hope to see you all (and GSP) there as well!!

I'm Giving Away Tickets to the World Premiere of The Striking Truth

I grew up a huge fan of wrestling. Yes, the WWE kind (although, while I was growing up it was the WWF). I loved watching these athletes do crazy things all in the name of putting on a great show. I know that wrestling isn't all real, but there was still that satisfaction I got of watching someone get dropkicked from the top ropes. It was like an action movie, but done live where the people involved had to get it right every time.

As I grew up I moved a bit away from wrestling. I still like to watch it on occasion, but I just don't see it as often as I used to. I still like watching people get beat up though. Especially when it's done right. Like wrestling, there's a real art to knowing how to properly beat someone up (now that I've written that I realize how weird it sounds, but it's true at the same time). I think that's why I became a fan of MMA.

If you know anything about MMA, especially if you're from Canada like me, then I'm sure you know the name GSP. George St-Pierre is the current welterweight champion in the UFC and in my opinion, one of the best mixed martial arts fighters EVER. I'm probably not the only person to think so. In fact, someone else who thought so made a documentary about him called The Striking Truth. Check out the trailer here:

If that trailer got you as pumped up as it did for me, then I have great news for you: I'm giving away tickets to the world premiere of The Striking Truth here in Toronto!! That's right, I have tickets to give away to see the world premiere of this documentary on Friday February 25th at 9pm at The Sony Center For Performing Arts.

So here's the deal; I thought I'd have a little fun with this contest. Let me know why you're the biggest GSP fan and the tickets are yours. Leave me a story in the comments section. Make a video and leave a link in the comments. Do something awesome to prove to me that you're the biggest GSP fan and you could be on your way to see the GSP documentary before anyone else.

Oh ya, did I mention that GSP himself will be there? Cause he will! And he'll be doing a Q&A session with his fans.

Soooooo, what are you waiting for? Start submitting your entries for this contest!!

I'll announce the winners one week from today (the evening of Tuesday, February 22nd).

Good Luck!!

PS- If you don't win, you can always buy tickets here.
