Dear foo, I need some help

I hope this doesn't violate any rules here or anything, but I'm getting desperate so I figured I'd try it.

USA Triathlon has a photo caption contest each quarter. My caption is one of the finalists. I'm currently in second place with 1 day to go. I'm down by 55 votes. If I win I get some nice little prize pack from Rudy Project.

There are no forms to fill out, and voting takes 2 seconds.

The poll is here: www.usatriathlon.org/poll

My caption is: "Yeah, Matty Reed thinks he dropped me. he doesn't realize I've already finished the course 6 times."

We spent a lot on the upcoming honeymoon so I could really use the free gear.

Thanks gang.

Not saying for which caption, though.

I wouldnt be so far behind but the notification that this had started went to my junk box, so i didnt get a chance to "rock the vote" 2 weeks ago when it started.

Thanks for the help gang.

Thanks CJ. I'm down by only 10 now, but voting doesnt end until tomorrow, so I want to clear into first with a big buffer to absorb any charge #2 may make between now and then.

Random power of the internet. It's much more useful than a lot of people think.

Haha, nice use of the internet! I sorta liked the 2nd and 3rd more, but I figured I might as well help out the one who asked. Not that you need it, goodness, talk about a landslide!
