Sometimes I dream of competing in the Olympics but then I look in a full length mirror and realize that they wouldn’t even let me tryout. If you or someone you know has had their dream of gold crushed, perhaps Samsung’s Mobile Phone Samaritan contest is one way to catch Olympic glory.
To enter, go to Samsung’s contest Web site and tell a story about how someone (you may include yourself) used a mobile phone to help out in a tough situation. Judges will pick the five best entries and the winners get to carry the Olympic torch when it visits San Francisco on April 9th, 2008.
I would enter myself multiple times but San Francisco is such a hilly city. I wouldn’t mind carrying the torch downhill, but uphill is a killer.
