So I got a pretty cool phone call today...

I was on my way home from my first day back at work since my second son was born and my mobile rang. It was from fasterlouder.com.au - a live music site in Australia. I couldn't take the call right then so I called back when I got home.

Turns out I won the Iron Maiden contest I entered a couple weeks back. It was for a pack including a one-off signed Ed Force One decal set (signed by the whole band), the Maiden back-catalogue, and a special edition Final Frontier CD with poster. Sweet!

I would have loved to have been able to see them play this week in Sydney, but this was a pretty cool consolation.

Very cool... congrats on winning, but a contest with no VIP ticket or backstage pass to meet the band?

You lucky stud! Did you see the Ed Force One livery for this year's tour? I would love to see that 757 come flying into O'Hare and see the look on peoples' faces. Priceless.

I seem to be on a roll this week. I just won juststrings.com Free String Friday on twitter. I think I'd better buy a ticket for tonights lotto draw, make it three from three!
