DT Giveaway: The Jay DeMerit Story on DVD

Dirty Tackle

Because you've been good this year, we're squeezing in another special giveaway just before the holidays. This time we've got three copies of Rise and Shine: The Jay DeMerit Story on DVD -- a documentary about the current Vancouver Whitecaps captain who left the U.S. at 21 with no professional footballing experience and just $1,800 (£1,161) in his pocket. After living in an attic and working his way up from the ninth tier of English football, DeMerit eventually found himself playing in the Premier League with Watford and in the 2010 World Cup for the U.S.

It's a great, improbable true story (that would make for a nice last-minute gift idea) and all you have to do to win one of the DVDs is leave a comment in the thread about this post on the Facebook wall and/or email me at BrooksDT[at] We'll pick three random winners on Wednesday, December 21.

Win cash prizes, pick a fantasy roster for just one day, join in minutes!
