Yep, we've got another great giveaway going this week, in the never-ending quest to bribe innocent web travelers over to Cranky Fitness. Who knows, maybe new readers will get so hopelessly disoriented by the weirdness here that they'll forget how to leave and will have to spend every single day for the rest of their lives wandering through the archives! Or, well, maybe they'll just stop by and leave a comment and then need to stop by next week to see if they won. That works too.
Anyway, I got to keep a pair of BTB Sunglasses myself, so I can tell you all about them. And we've got two additional pairs to give away! Not necessarily those pictured above, either: you can pick any pair you take a liking to over at the BTB website.
(Sadly, though, you need a U.S mailing addresses to get the glasses. Others can still enter, but you have to pick someone in the U.S. you'd like to send your pair to).
Hmm, poor Brad seems to be squinting a bit...
So, are you feeling lucky? The random number generator is waiting!
About the BTB Sunglasses:
The great thing about the BTB shades (especially if you don't manage to win a pair) is that you don't have to pay a fortune for them, but they've got high-quality lenses and sturdy comfortable frames like the expensive brands. They market 'em as "the best $100 sunglasses you can buy for under $50," and I'd say that's a fair assessment. For someone like me, who is forever losing my sunglasses or sitting on them, this is a bonus.
I tested out the BTB 200 Polarized pair, and was impressed!
Of course, I haven't bought an expensive pair of sunglasses since the Carter administration, so I often find myself peering through blurry or glarey lenses. And mine don't tend to last long, because I keep ruining them by squashing, smashing, or twisting the cheap frames until they are loose and lopsided. These sunglasses, by contrast, were polarized, well-constructed, and gave me a crisp clean view of everything when I took 'em out on a whale watch yesterday. They were definitely better than my old ones.
Another bonus? If you ever plan to go quail hunting with Dick Cheney, it's good to know that these lenses can withstand being shot at with a 12 gauge shotgun at 30 feet! They've even got a video demonstration, in case you've always had a secret hankering to watch a pair of sunglasses get shot.
The one downside I found is that I picked a pair that might have been a bit too big for my face. The BTB 200's are designed for small-to-medium sized sized faces, and they certainly were comfortable, but next time I might pick a different style because I like 'em a little smaller.
