Our tie-in with this year’s Super Bowl

Jim Harbaugh and Ken Dilger riding The Raven in 1996 Did you enter our "A sporting contest" brain teaser?

It was a tough one.

To find the answer, you had to go back to the year 1996, when two members of the Indianapolis Colts football team rode The Raven.

That's Jim Harbaugh on the left and Ken Dilger (a local boy who did quite well for himself) on the right.

As you may know, Jim Harbaugh later played for the Ravens football team and is now the coach of the 49ers, one of the teams in yesterday's Super Bowl.

Congrats to Josh P. from Indianapolis, who was the first to email us with a correct entry. He gets to yell, "I'm going to Holiday World!"

Did Holidog see his shadow?

It's Groundhog Day, and in the grand tradition of awakening a brown furry critter to see if spring is four weeks away (if there's no shadow) or six weeks (when there is a shadow), we coaxed cuddly Holidog out of his dog house for a look-see.

Woooooooooof! Just four more weeks till spring!

Four weeks till spring

Have a great weekend, everyone!

A sporting contest

Ready for our first contest of the new year?

With the Super Bowl just days away, this contest will give you sports fans something to think about. And you could win two one-day ticket for 2013!

To warm you up, here's a photo of our late owner, the always-laughing Will Koch, happily clutching the 2007 Vince Lombardi Trophy.

"Don't drop it, Will!" (Oh, how we teased that poor man!)

And yes, the trophy came to visit one day. It wasn't tall enough to ride the coasters, though. Bummer.

Our question has nothing to do with the above photo, so clear your mind and take a deep, cleansing breath.

Our question is: what is it about this year's Super Bowl that ties in with Holiday World?

Hint: we need a specific person's name, a specific team and a specific year in the correct answer.

Good luck!

A few rules:

1. Must be 13 or older to enter.

2. Must not be an employee or immediate family member of Holiday World & Splashin' Safari.

3. Yes, you may enter more than once. But five times is the limit, okay? And only one guess per email, please.

4. First person to email us with the correct answer wins. If no one guesses exactly, we'll go with whoever came closest. (So I guess that means we need to set a deadline … okay, Monday at noon. That's 2/4/13 at 12 noon CST.)
