A few weeks ago I was down south and a friend invited me to go fishing in the Gulf of Mexico. While I grew up near Long Island Sound beaches where fishing is justifiably popular, the sport never appealed to me as much as it did to my dad and older brother. Nonetheless, this invitation was too good to pass up: all I had to do to enjoy a beautiful day on the water was to supply the lunch; everything else would be taken care of by my host or the captain. So off we sailed – in search of “The Big One” – with my bag of sandwiches from Panera Bread (yum!).
Well, there was some rain, and the fish weren’t biting – except for a small sand shark, a couple of catfish and some little creatures that had to be thrown back. But what a good time we had – even if I didn’t bring home a big catch for a seafood dinner. Maybe I’ll do better the next time.
And that’s exactly how I want you folks to think about the big SuperPrize. Even if you weren’t the big winner of our Sweepstakes yesterday…even if you didn’t reel in “The Big One” yet…I hope you all had fun fishin’ for your big catch from Publishers Clearing House…the grand-daddy of Sweepstakes.
Of course, like all fishermen, you must be patient. Even if you didn’t win this time, you’ve got to try again! Entering is kind of like putting a few fishing lines in the lake – with lots of bait. The more entries, the better your chances of receiving a surprise visit from the PCH Prize Patrol. And unlike me who only gets to go fishing every once in a while, you can enter our Sweepstakes today and every day — for more chances to win your big catch!
