Totem in Columbus tickets to Cirque du Soleil

Totem Cirque du Soleil

The July 10, 2013 post… Cirque du Soleil Coming to Town: Totem  Totem in Columbus Tickets… the winner is announced, finally.

A small troupe of  “would be”  acrobats finished the sentence:

“If I was a Cirque du Soleil acrobat, I’d__________”

In comments on the would be acrobats:

“Walk a tightrope”

“I’d dazzle on the aerial contortion in silk.

“I’d swing from ribbons over the crowd!”

“I’d love to amaze on the German wheel.”

“I’d play a cool bug in Ovo like the butterflies performing a pas de deux on a rope ”

“Juggle Bowling Balls While Riding A Unicycle On A TightRope”

“Finally be over my fear of heights & would soar over the crowd!!!!!!

and more.

The Rafflecopter, disappointed.  I set the raffle up wrong.  I wrestled with the Rafflecopter trying to add in the comment entries for hours yesterday.  Leanna commented today about it being set up wrong since the beginning.  Let’s all  just call it operator error.  Mea culpa.  I will have to read the directions before doing another raffle.*

The odds…

  • 8 entries for Leanna
  • 3 entries for Jocelyn
  • 2 entries for Jason
  • 1 entry for Michelle
  • 1 entry for Chris Pugh
  • 1 entry for Brenna
  • 1 entry for Angie Meeker

Doing the drawing from a hat.   My hat.  I have a pith helmet (safari hat) and that hat  worked well for holding the  17 slips of paper….

The winner is…


Leanna’s persistence paid off.  I wrote the numbers and a few words of  each comment on the  slips of paper… and had a disinterested 3rd party draw a slip of paper from a hat.  Leanna won for her 8th comment:

“If I was a Cirque du Soleil acrobat, I’d envy the patrons in the audience who are privileged to enjoy with wonder the amazing world that is Cirque du Soleil!”

Read Leanna’s seven other comments… she know acrobatics.

Totem the return of the BIG TOP to Columbus in 2013:

“It’s the return of the BIG TOP!  Win two tickets to see TOTEM by Cirque du Soleil, under the Big Top on the Ohio  Expo Center grounds.  Coming to Columbus August 22 – September 15.  Tickets are on sale now.

Commenting on

Thanks to all that commented on the July 10, 2013 post and entered the raffle.

Great comments everyone!

If I were a Cirque du Soleil acrobat, I’d go to Jeni’s in my costume and Instagram myself eating some Strawberry Buttermilk. Let’s just be honest.

Honorable mention for the funniest comment but there is no award since the comment was NOT on the post.   Edward Harris finished the sentence on Google+:

“If I was a Cirque du Soleil acrobat, I’d__________”

“name myself Adobe.”

That is the truth.  Adobe owns the word acrobat on the Internet.

The pair of tickets is from Live Nation Columbus.  Thanks to Live Nation.  Tracy Tucker with Live Nation get’s credit for the idea of finishing the sentence too.  Tracy suggested the sentence, “If I was a Cirque du Soleil acrobat, I’d __________.”  

Congratulations to Leanna for winning Tickets to Totem in Columbus.

* another raffle… stay tuned.
