We Have a Winner

Last week, I asked the faithful followers and loyal readers of this online publication to help me with a task.

I had recently purchased a car, a 2009 Honda Accord.

No name? It might as well be my TV…wait, even Brock has a name. Nevermind.

I came to you folks because I couldn’t decide on anything worth repeating let alone keeping for the next 60 payments on this thing.  And let me just say…you responded in kind.

So let me first thank all of you for helping out.  They were all great suggestions.  But as I said, I was going to let my wife and kids pick the winner.  I didn’t want me knowing who submitted the name to influence my pick in any way.

Tonight, my family rose to the occasion (if our own government worked even half as efficient as a 6 year old, a 9 year old, and their mom, this country would be running like a well oiled, pink colored, machine).  I listed and read off the names (anonymously), they listened to each with the same intent and furrowed brows they typically save for TV,  and after 3 rounds of cuts, they had made their decision.

So without further ado, let me introduce you ‘BRUISER’.

And let me thank Abby, from Abby Off the Record

Abby is a wife and mom of 2 little boys, has a rocking website that is about her life as a mom by day and freelance writer by night.

You can read Abby’s work on her website Abby Off the Record and catch her on Twitter at @AbbyOTR

Thanks again Abby.  And now, thanks to Abby’s contribution to my car, she is has the choice between a lifetime pass for a ride to the grocery store anytime she’s in the area or she can take over the payments for me.  I’m sort of excited to see which one she picks.

I guess I should go introduce myself to Bruiser.  We’re going to be best buds for a long time or until I get the title.

Thanks to everyone who submitted a name.  I really do appreciate it!

  1. Good choice! I consider myself a loyal and faithful reader of your blog, but I didn’t enter, because I am just not that creative!


    • You are definitely loyal AND faithful and its ok that you didn’t enter. I’m sure there will be more in the future to do! Thanks for reading. I always appreciate it!


  2. I want to change my answer: Bruiser. Definitely. 🙂


  3. Bruiser’s a good pick. Here’s hoping it doesn’t live up to its name. 😉


  4. Abby is just so darn clever. And shame on me. I didn’t even play! And I share your love for Hondas and everything. Bruiser is a hottie.


  5. HOORAY!! I am so, so honored! I’m not kidding — this made my day! The thought of your girls voting on names – ha! But if we’re going to share a car, I have some rules: no Meatloaf or Rush may be played. No Red Bull or similar energy drinks can be consumed in the vehicle, because they make the car smell like vomit. Can you live with that? 😉


  6. Absolutely on the coffee. Drinking it in the car is sometimes the only way I get to finish an entire cup while it’s still hot!
