Get your hands on the EPL trophy Sunday afternoon!

man utd logo.jpgYou want to hold the EPL trophy? You want a Manchester United jersey autographed by the entire team? Listen up.

OK, so here’s the deal. Starting at noon Sunday, one lucky fan outside of the Manchester United team hotel (a seasonal location the intersection of 1st Ave. and Union St.) will be handed the EPL trophy by team officials for roughly 30-45 minutes.

That fan, who will be followed by security and a media contingent, then has approximately 30-45 minutes to do something as creative as possible.

Go to the Space Needle. Take it Pike Place Market. Go to the zoo or aquarium. Dance around in the park. Whatever.

After that fan’s allotted time, he or she has to pass the trophy off to another fan, who then gets 30-45 minutes to go wild.

Take it on a ferry. Go Ride the Ducks. Take it to the Seattle Underground. Take it home for a BBQ. Anything you like.

But whoever spends the 30-45 minutes in the most creative fashion will win a jersey autographed by the whole team. Those are the rules as I understand them, should be a fun time for all.

Be sure to spread the word!
