Canal Street Chronicles is looking to reward one lucky New Orleans Saints fan with a very unique gift (pictured below), courtesy of Wilson Sporting Goods.
The Wilson X Connected Football (which retails for $199.99) brings football to another level, as it measures your distance, spin rate, velocity, spiral efficiency, and catch/drop through their software platform. Needless to say, it’s one of the coolest concepts we’ve seen in a while.
Pre-orders can be placed on Wilson’s website, which will ship on September 8.
How to Enter: We’re looking for stories involving your interaction with Saints players, both past and present. Have you ever hung out with Drew Brees? Were you able to get on the sideline for a pre-game to hang out with Deuce McAllister? Has a Saints player ever visited your school or place of employment? Has a Saints player ever shown up to a charity event you were at?
Tell us about your experience by leaving it in the comments, or you can e-mail me the story (firstname.lastname@example.org). As the managing editor, I’m thrilled to hand this out to a passionate Saints fan. The more detail, the better the story! No purchase is necessary.
Selecting a Winner: The contest is open until Friday night at 10:00 p.m. CST. All stories and submissions will be read, and along with some staff members, we will present our top three on Saturday to select a final winner. The winner will be announced prior to the Saints opener against the Oakland Raiders, and Wilson will send you your custom Saints ball.
