Countdown to Burning Crusade: Day 2 winner

Barb Dybwad

Thanks to everyone who participated in the Day 2 caption contest. You made it tough to pick a winner, but the results are in -- commenter Odgit is going to take home the 60-day game card! We've listed the winner and a close runner-up below, and the honorable mentions after the break -- and a general hats off to everyone for all the great Matrix, Hitchhiker's, and Star Wars references and general pop culture pot pourri.

Don't forget, you have three chances to win our grand prizes as we Countdown to Burning Crusade. Grats to Odgit for taking the prize for Day 2, you've still got plenty of time to win a Leeroy t-shirt, and join us tomorrow for Day 5 of the Countdown.
