On Saturday, June 19, MLS held a special Father's Day Twitter giveaway contest. By tweeting the link of a MLS father/child photo @MLS with the #MLS and #HappyFathersDay hashtags, the first 20 participants were entered into a random drawing to win a scarf.
Congratulations to Carina Ibarra (@Aggie9), whose tweet "@MLS my husband and our baby at the babies first Quakes game. #happyfathersday #MLS http://lockerz.com/s/112316800" was the lucky winner. The photo is featured above and includes Carina's son Alex Donovan and her husband Christopher with "Q", the Earthquakes mascot.
We'd like to share a special thanks to all the fans who participated, and we've posted a few of our favorite photos below.
To view all of the entries (there are some great ones) log into Twitter and search #MLS (or just click here). In the right-hand column you'll see a button to "Display Media," where you can select "Top Images" or "Top Videos." This is a new feature from Twitter that you can read all about on the Twitter blog.
