Good evening, everyone, and welcome to the inaugural ticket giveaway on The View From Section 134 blog.

Click HERE for yesterday’s post that describes tonight’s contest.

There are 60 total questions; 30 “scavenger hunt” with assorted questions from various places around the blog and 30 trivia questions about the 2012 Pittsburgh Pirates.

UPDATE: If you have any trouble logging in with your Twitter account for your comments, please send us a direct message on Twitter. Thanks to Drew Brown for the heads up.

Some very important things to remember:
- You are only allowed to answer five questions
- Your comment must include the number of the question you are answering
- You must sign in via your Twitter account
- You do not have to answer in any particular order
- Comments after 9:00 pm will not be included
- Any unanswered or incorrectly answered questions will be put into a “Bonus Round” post at 9:30
- The total number of correct answers you provide = the number of times your name will be entered into the drawing. The winner of the drawing will win two free tickets to the Pirates vs. Royals game on Sunday, June 10th

You are only allowed to answer five questions, so choose wisely. It is 5 total questions, NOT five from scavenger and five from trivia. Also, if a question is answered correctly by multiple people, the earliest comment gets the point.
