I can’t think of any good contest ideas for the Justin Chamberlain game used autographed hat. Maybe you guys have some. Let me know.

Update 9:06 PM: I decided to go with 5 Office trivia questions for the contest. I will try to post it sometime tomorrow night or Monday. It will be the first person to answer all 5 correctly wins, so be sure to check back often.

whats the vibe in the club house about the rays taking out francisco cervelli?

8 03 2008
joblogchamberlain

How about something else that has to do with The Office? I love that show.

8 03 2008

did u ask him phil?

8 03 2008

hm… How about a yankees trivia quiz? Five or so questions, all must be answered correctly.

8 03 2008
smelterite

Predict when how many hits and strikeouts he will give up the first time he throws three innings in a spring training game.

8 03 2008
itachi62

ask Joba what his favorite show is and we have to guess
but give us a lead like, what decade is it from 70’s,80’s,90’s or this decade
cartoon,comedy ect. that would be a good contest and hard to guess

8 03 2008
riverwolf2005

Just take all of the folks info from the web site before the BLOG and do a random drawing of them like you did then. We already had to e-mail our info then so hopefully it is around somewhere.
That way those of us who were around before the BLOG have a special treat.

The contestant with a head big enough to wear it wins it!

8 03 2008
zellyanks91

Trivia Questions about either you or joba…maybe 3-5 questions, and whoever gets them all right will be entered into a drawing and you pick from them.

itachi62

I think my idead is the best one.
It doesnt have to be tv show, it could be his fav song,artist,baseball player
, anything really but remember to give us a lead if you pick my idea

8 03 2008
bethyj

hmm… not sure. Ask Moose. Or Justin, since it’s for his game used cap. I’d be interested to see what either of them came up with!

8 03 2008
yankeefaninidaho

How about all of us with Yankee tattoos send you pics and you and J/C can judge the best. Show some ink to get some ink, right?

8 03 2008
paddyo6

Yeah I think that trivia questions about you or Joba, or even Yankees trivia in general are a good idea. Thanks for taking the time to do contests good luck tommorow!!

8 03 2008
chrissylovesnyy

JMO, but I don’t think trivia would be such a good idea, seeing as someone not quite knowledgeable could easily find the answers online. Unless it was a question you can’t find online like the “what is Ian’s nickname?” contest you had before.

8 03 2008
teomcdohl

most people who are yankee fans know that joba’s birth name was justin, and his fathers name is harlan. i think a good contest would be: what is joba’s mother’s first name? I have no idea what the answer is, but i think that it would be a really good question.

8 03 2008
defensewins

Trivia Questions about either you or joba…maybe 3-5 questions, and whoever gets them all right will be entered into a drawing and you pick from them.

I personally don’t like the drawing idea. It would be too easy for anyone to look at the comments, and copy answers. If you ask me, it should be 5 triva questions, and first come with all 5 questions correct, they should win

8 03 2008
throwstrikes

Take a photo of something commonly found in a ballpark and super zoom it so it is out of focus. People can guess what it is. Set a deadline like you did last time and pick a name from the correct responses. If no one gets it right by deadline, you can resize it smaller until someone gets it.

8 03 2008
kevinpage23

My suggestion it to get Joba to sign enough hats for each and every one of us to have. Then no one can complain

8 03 2008
jboogie

How bout you have us guess how many video games you own? Or how many DVDs you have in your collection? Or CDs? Or songs on your iPod? Or songs on Justin’s iPod (assuming he has one).

Take all those with a right answer and draw a winner. If no one is dead on, pick the closest to without going over, Price Is Right style.

8 03 2008
derekpeter

Ask Joba what his favorite movie is (Give us a genre so we have a chance).

8 03 2008
californiaxdan

predict the first 10 pitches in order that joba throws in his next outing in spring training. just pitches (fastball, slider, change, curve..) not location or balls and strikes

8 03 2008
yankeesfan29

who is JUSTIN chamberlain????

8 03 2008
jorob8

Hey Phil, wishing you all the best this season!
How about why he uses #62 ? or how he got his name Joba?
Or what his favorite food is? – Or maybe something about the old JOBA Rules?
PS. Beat Boston!!!!

8 03 2008
yanks4ever13

I generally have some ideas, but why don’t you run it past Joba?

Oh, and I’ve noticed the last post or two you’ve called him Justin – is that something you generally do, or you’ve done just because you felt like it. Just curious.

8 03 2008
yankeechick78

Did all the pitchers take note of what Johnson did to Cervalli? Like your manager said if it is the regular season it is one thing, but in spring training it isn’t right. Hopefully Cervalli will heal quickly.

8 03 2008
yankeelor

Hey, Phil!
How about you judge photos of our heads to see who’s the most cap worthy? Or what if we all submit photos of you to see which one you think is the best?

8 03 2008
yanksrule191

hey Phil,
i think itachi has a good idea. you should ask justin what his favorite show is or song or movie..etc…and whoever guesses it right will get it…just make sure to give us a clue because that one is pretty hard haha

8 03 2008
alex4yanks

How about… what is your favorite song from one of your favorite bands… everyone who gets it correct…. you put into a hat and pick at random😉

8 03 2008
jessicayanks

i like the idea of favorite show. song. band. movie. im sure you’ll think of something !!

8 03 2008
xpigeonx

how about something simple.. you pick a number between 1-100

who ever guesses the number first or closest without going over wins.

only 1 guess per person.

8 03 2008
dfox

Randomly pick a seating section in Yankee Stadium (http://newyork.yankees.mlb.com/nyy/ballpark/seating_pricing.jsp) and the people who guess it are entered into a drawing.

8 03 2008
hughesd

What is Justin’s most popular nickname?

8 03 2008
jz5178

I think you should ask Justin what he thinks is a good idea since it is his hat your giving away, or you could have him think up a question.

8 03 2008
yankeejohn

Give Cervelli a “get well soon” from us.

Can’t wait to see the Rays again on Wednesday!

8 03 2008
peachy124

do you guys in the clubhouse really call him “justin” rather than “joba”?

i think you should give joba some input🙂

8 03 2008
dynastynyy

Maybe some trivia about the 2007 season that only die-hards would know🙂

8 03 2008
dynastynyy

Oh, by the way, I drafted you in my second round of fantasy baseball today. No pressure or anything, but I need to beat my brother this year😉

8 03 2008

i like the tattoo idea yankeefaninidaho had. Be fun to see some yanks Tats… besides my own i mean😉

8 03 2008

His favorite city or restaurant. Something random enough that people cant copy each others answers.

8 03 2008
willlaux

ask some more office questions. every1 loves the office and if they dont they should be taken out behind “steinbrenner” feild and shot.

or we could always guess how much david ortiz weighs.

u could give us a hint by mabey telling us if its in pounds or tons.

8 03 2008
showbiz0618

How about how fast can you mail it to me?

Chevelle Rocks!

8 03 2008
yanksgal07

I guess the fans who don’t watch The Office are left out in the cold ..brrrrrrrrrrrrrr (that means me !!!). Maybe in the future it can be Yankee trivia questions this way ALL Yankee fans get a chance,

Good luck to any Office viewers …

Good luck to you tomorrow …Mr. Hughes…(I believe you are pitching tomorrow…right???)

Go Yankees 2008 !!!!

8 03 2008
defensewins

Cool. I will be sure to check the site more often in the next two days🙂

Glad you made it where the first person to correctly answer wins the contest, also.

8 03 2008
eugiethegreat

It’s cool that you do these but I wish you’d let everyone have a shot at them. I don’t watch the office so I have no chance.

8 03 2008
rdf8585

It’s probably not good for my chances that I’ve never watched The Office.

8 03 2008
yanks4ever13

“The Office”? I follow eleven different scripted television shows and that’s not one of them. Argh! I guess I’ll just have to try and hunt the answers down online or get my friends to help me. Do you watch any other shows besides “The Office”, Phil?

8 03 2008
dimagg5

Thanks Phil- looking forward to this!

8 03 2008
nyywinningdoesnttake86yrs

aww man i don’t watch the office…hope these answers can be found on google lol
dude you’re prob gonna get so many people to start watching that show if you keep having these constests on it …lol you should get paid

8 03 2008
lavatrna

Hmm, I don’t watch Office, but that is fine.

I could have guessed Justin’s nickname, that worked quite well for Ian Kennedy.😉

Good luck to everybody.

8 03 2008
Fleas

man, that was the closest to winning anything I’ve wanted in a contest! There was only like a dozen people who guess IKE, I was one of them!

Congratz lavatrna!

8 03 2008
nyywinningdoesnttake86yrs

btw since it’s gonna be the frist person to get it right wins…can you tell us what time? so everybody has a equal chance

8 03 2008
nyywinningdoesnttake86yrs

you’re the winner! i’m jealous lol
i never would’ve guessed ike …but at least i didn’t guess IPK lol

8 03 2008

Sweet!!!! Great idea!:)

I’m just worried I won’t see the questions. I work 8-8 on weekdays.

8 03 2008

Cool!
I actually know stuff about The Office, hopefully it’s question people can’t google though.😦

8 03 2008
cromartiehopsparty

awesome idea and I wouldn’t worry about the Google thing, everything on here has been more than fair and I’m sure Phil plans to keep it that way!

Phil,
I don’t watch the Office, I watch Lost and 24, and Yankee rewind.
Today was David Cones’ perfect game!
Got all goose bumps again!!!
Good luck to everyone who watches The Office!

drill one of the rays in the back in retaliation for that cheap shot against us today.
you are our ace…

9 03 2008
dahouse292

hey phil we rent all fans of the office here
we r definately all baseball fans so how about 5 baseball questions and pull the winner out of a hat like u did 4 ians? i think that would be a little more fair.

9 03 2008
dahouse292

and by the way i agree with willaux that might have been the single funniest comment ive ever read

9 03 2008
kanderson74

since i’ve yet to see an episode… i guess i’m screwed on this contest (although, i haven’t won any of the other ones… so i suppose i’m not missing much).

9 03 2008
rebeccaoptimist

So apparently I need to start watching The Office?

9 03 2008
lubedlandlord

Darn. I know nothing about The Office… And im also guessing that Joba’s real name is Justin? I didnt know that either! I hope the next contest is aimed a little more at Yankee questions or sumthing.

9 03 2008
kevinpage23

I sent Phil and email at 7:50pm last night recommending he ask 5 Office questions.

Dang I’m good (or influential). Now I just better win. LOL

9 03 2008

Not an Office fan,,,,,so good luck to all
Go Yankees “””””””””””””

9 03 2008

Man, Phil, you and The Office… I think you should start watching Heroes instead.

9 03 2008
bigbronxballs77

I wish I knew ANYTHING about the Office. Too bad Phil isn’t as up on hs Sopranos trivia, or even Entourage or the Shield. If this was a Sopranos trivia contest, I’d whack ya all….

9 03 2008
tonytouch20

dear phil

I know this is off topic from your question but I have been trying to get ahold of u to ask a question. I am a from Albany new York and I am a big ball card buster and a huge yanks fan. I recently pulled one of your 2007 sweet spot beginings helmet auto. I pulled one of the ones that u wrote MLB debut 4/26/07 below your autograph. My ? To u is how many did you sign like this and what’s the significants of you doing this. Thank you Anthony

9 03 2008
unccmeangreen12

is joba’s real name justin or am i missing something?

9 03 2008
unccmeangreen12

also phil, are you going to start commenting on your pitching performances on a game to game basis?

9 03 2008
bethnyyfan

Joba was born Justin Chamberlain but a cousin (?? I think it was a cousin or his sister) couldn’t pronounce Justin so he became Joba and when he became and adult he legally changed it to Joba. At least that is the story I’ve heard.

9 03 2008
bethnyyfan

I love the Office. I have watched every episode more than once.

I like the British Office [the original] but it’s weird because a lot of the American Office episodes are based on the British ones. In other ones they do the exact same lines or the exact scenes but the rest of the episode will be different. I love Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant (Stephen was the agent in the show Extras [another great show] and is Ricky’s co-writer/co-producer).

I couldn’t get through the British Office because I know the American one so well. If I had to make a suggestion to anyone new to The Office it would be to watch the British one first or watch it before you know every line and episode, by heart, of the American one.

kmrhomeimp

Phil just opened my wordpress acct so this is the first time I have ever used a blog. Anyway I just wanted to say that I’m life long yankee fan since 1976 and this is the first time I can remember having this much young talent all at once. I’m just happy you are still a yankee and I think you will be one of the best pitcher the yank’s ever developed through the system.I would rather have you than johan. I hope maybe I can someday get a baseball with all the young yankee players auto’s that would be something to have a ball of the best young talents in the game that would be something to cherrish for ever

9 03 2008
energywins08

so you going to give up a hit?? great curve today!

9 03 2008
yanksgal07

Great pitching job today Phil …no runs, no hits …a few walks (who cares ..they didn’t score). I guess you are proof positive coming to ST a little earlier and working a little harder has results. Hopefully other players take note.

Can’t wait to see you during the season. I have plenty of games so I’m sure I’ll see you a few times.

Go Phil !!! Go Yankees 2008 !!!

9 03 2008

Phil, great outing today. Your curve was particularly awesome. As long as you stay healthy i expect great things from you this year and am looking forward to watching you for years to come.

9 03 2008
mmarkz26

I like the idea of having 5 questions about The Office. Others are saying that its unfair because not everyone watches The Office, but I think you should be able to make the contests about whatever you want.

Great outing today, by the way

9 03 2008
philfan

Great job today!!!!!!! And a no hitter going into the 7th inning. Awesome!!

9 03 2008
bkny27

I never watched The Office, it’s my type of comedy, but I just never watched it. Too bad this was not a contest for The Wire, because I know I would win that!

9 03 2008
cbon9

I likeThe Office show, but not confident that I know enough to win a contest. I like the idea of 5 (or so) Yankee trivia questions. You get them right and you go into a pool to win. We are all Yankee fans here. Some are casual The Office fans, some are not…..

But seriously, thank you for the opportunity to win something regardless.

9 03 2008

Great job today….you really looked Good……………..

you were dealing today phil- by the end of the season we will know that you are the #1 we have been searching for to go against beckett. hail phil phranchise hughes!

jfrankparnell

Phil –

Great job today, Phil. You had to be a little gassed by the end of the 4th. Did Eiland want to take you out, or did he ask if you wanted to come out?

I thought I saw at least one slider today – it moved in towards a Twins lefty hitter, and ended up in the dirt.

You had to be happy with the fastball, curve and change today.

9 03 2008
phughesrocks

Great job today Phil. At this pace, you’ll throw 30-something no-hitters this season!

9 03 2008
jfrankparnell

One more thing – is it fair to say that your fastball command was Phil-nomenal?
(Came up with this on NYYFANS – not bad, eh?)

9 03 2008

Great outing today Phil, man you made management look dumb ever trying to trade you.

phil, great job today. you must be pretty excited about the way things are going

9 03 2008
kanderson74

Great outing today Phil. Read Gardenhire’s quote that you are “as adverstised” – must be nice to hear from the opposing team’s manager (when his GM is the one that had a chance to make a trade for you).

9 03 2008
yankeechick78

The game wasn’t on tv, but saw the box score and heard you pitched very well. Congrats!!
