In fact, I'm holding a Father's Day contest. It's a little different than my usual contest. Normally, I give you guys a question to answer. This time, I want you to give me a question. What's a good estimation question that every father would get a kick out of?
To enter, tweet your question to @aarontsantos by June 14, 2013. I promise not to spam your inbox or sell your email to evil corporate overlords. On the 14th, I'll select what I think is the most interesting question and answer it on the blog for Father's Day. The winner will receive a free signed copy of Ballparking to give to your dad (or anyone else you like).
***Edit*** Per popular request, I'm gonna say it's OK if you want to mail me your questions rather than tweet them. Send them to aaron at aaronsantos period com.
