2009 SEC Championship Trip Win Update

Title Abbreviations Explained Here


Dr Pepper Sponsored tripIf you read the winner’s post 2 weeks ago you know that my son Phil won a @DrPepper sponsored trip to the 2009 SEC Championship game. This was a restricted sweepstakes that I posted on the Secret site and it was restricted to 27 states. There were 5 grand prize trip winners and 3 were Sweeties Secret Sweeps members.

My son took good ole’ Dad since they are both huge football fans and have been playing an ESPN Fantasy football game together all season long. They both live and breathe football so this was a perfect trip to win. My son said it was considered the best college game of the year. The game was played in Atlanta at the Georgia Dome – Alabama vs Florida.

My son and husband sat with Anna, a Sweeties Secret member who also won the trip. This picture is of Phil (my youngest son), Greg (my husband), Rama (Anna’s boyfriend) and Anna. They were doing free hair/face painting so Anna thought she’d be festive. She doesn’t normally have red hair!

2009 SEC Championship Trip Winners

Thanks to Georgia from the chatroom who told me about the parade that was going on that weekend. They got to watch it from their hotel room (see below).

Dr. Pepper was the sponsor of this sweepstakes and trip and they said that they were well-treated from the welcome party to the pre-game party. Everything was very organized and there was always tons of food. They even got some nice swag to take home – SEC t-shirt, hat, pins, and magazine.

My son put pictures on his Facebook account and gave a bit of narration for each pic so I will let you see how the trip went in his words and from his pictures. This is the first professional college game he or Dad have ever been to.

  1. I'm glad they had fun at the game, I sure had a horrible time watching it.

  2. LOL, Breezy!

    Thanks for sharing this, Wendy. My hubby and son got back last Sunday from their game (Army/Navy), and they had such a great time! Hubby said they were treated very well too, lots of good food, swag, and some historic touring of Philly. The game was phenomenal, and they even got to meet THE Master Chief of the Navy. One of the best parts for my son was the limo ride to and from the airport. He is seven, and he will never forget this weekend with his Daddy. Thanks so much inspiring me to enter contests. It has been such a fun year, and we have been so blessed to have won so many great prizes! (Now I need to win a trip for my little girl and me to enjoy. :D)
