    Hey- I’ve been hearing more Alltel and Football news lately dealing with this sweepstakes… It’s called 1st and 10 and people (w/ their top ten circle) could win a chance to go on the field and throw for some sweet prizes (Like 100K, phones, tixs and what not.) They are hitting up a bunch of universities and others (The Cards, etc) around the nation for this promo. Here is the link with all the goods.

    Just type in Alltel and football via google and see the first link. Worth checking out...
