Mavericks Doesn’t Always Break, But It’s Awesome When It Does

  1. The contest got rick roll’d this year? What’s the window for it ? Nov. – february? I ran into anthony tashnick about a week after he won… 2005? I can’t remember. Sweet pics though



    1. I think the contest window was shorter this year compared to previous years – December 1 to February 28. Used to go ’till the end of March, I believe.
