Caption Competition; And the Winner is…

Right then, the hour is upon us, the time has come to announce the winner of Viva Rovers‘ second ever competition. We like folk to work for their rewards here at Viva Towers and so having asked you to draw your own interpretation of Steve Brooker for our first comp just over a year ago, we have again strove to get your creative side working with a Caption Competition this time round, all to determine the lucky recipient of a Savile Rogue luxury Cashmere scarf in Rovers colours.

We asked you to supply a caption for the image below and were delighted to have scores (well, a score) of entries. We’ve picked our top three out, despite there only being one scarf up for grabs, so we have two runners-up who get nothing, but the satisfaction in that we found their response to be better than at least 17 others. And lets face it, in harsh times such as these with Europe on the brink of financial collapse we could all do with that sort of a boost. Here’s the picture then. Winner and runners-up listed below;

Winner; “Deano sips his water whilst he can…in January it moves on to a world
of designer bottles, high profile ads and film stars’ lips” (A. Wainwright)

Runner-up; The Rovers edition of X Factor was in full swing as JR gives his verdict on Mark Wilson’s rendition of Waterloo by Abba. A resounding thumbs sideways. (Rob Johnson)

Runner-up; John Ryan: “Mr Saunders here got the job on the strength of his gormless squirrel impersonation. Show ’em, Deano” (Chris Beresford)

So Mr Wainwright wins the scarf, well done to he. Also well done to our runners-up Rob and Chris, I’ll see if I can swing you some sort of prize or offer from the Viva Rovers shop for you both. And also thank you to everyone else who took the time to enter.

  1. Damn! Got the closing date wrong… was going with “Deano old mate, you drink it, but remember I walk on it.”
