If football is truly going to the dogs along the lakefront, then let's see some swagger when it comes to predicting when the latest mascot for a local sports team does his business. What game will Swagger officially decide to properly fertilize the still-unfrozen tundra? Pick a game; entrants who correctly choose the right game when Swagger does his duty form the pool from which we'll make one choice, at random, to win a Swag Bag from 97.5 WONE that truly says "we're number two" -- even though we're one.
adopt a dog!
Bobby is a bull mastiff, just like Swagger!

Think a dog might be in your future?

You can adopt a bull mastiff (or almost any other kind of dog or even a cat) by getting in touch with Pay It Forward For Pets!
