- A trip to New York City for the Big East Tournament Championship Game to be announced at halfcourt at halftime of the tournament championship
- The University of Louisville will get $10,000 from Volvo.
- And I will be the recipient of a brand new naughty Volvo S60!!
Thanks again for the support, U of L fans! I couldn’t have done it without you!!
Now, I’m supposed to be working, so more details to follow later!
Go Cards! Go Big East! and GO VOLVO!!! THANK YOU!!!
Here’s the announcement e-mail from Volvo:
We’re very pleased to announce that Volvo¹s Biggest Fan of the Big East is Steve Springer.
Volvo feels that Steve has gone above and beyond throughout the season. His challenge posts showed his unique perspective in an engaging way, and always gained a lot of reader conversation in the comments section of UofLCardGame. He’s gained support from other Cards blogs along the way, and has made a number of Volvo videos (and appearances on WLKY, his local CBS affiliate) to hype the competition. He also got the word about the campaign out by putting pictures and videos up on Facebook and he used the #volvos60 hashtag on his Twitter account the greatest number of times of any of the fans. Not to mention, he’s been leading the fan poll for most of the season!
We’d like to emphasize that this was a very hard decision to make. The entire competition was fierce; the Final Four especially displayed all of the characteristics of a true Big East fan. Congratulations to Steve for winning the competition, and to everyone for a great season!
