December 2009, World Cup 2010

And The Winner Is…

Before we get to the winner, everyone at The Yanks Are Coming would like to thank you for your continued support. We’ve come a long way from our humble beginnings in August 2008 with our original eyesore of a site. Over the course of the Twitter jacket contest, you’ve all done so much to help improve our brand and increase traffic to our site.

For that, we are immensely grateful. While we sincerely wish we could reward everyone’s efforts with a new jacket, we are laughably poor graduate students riddled with debt. Enough with the whining, we’re still very much committed to saying thanks in the form of the contest as often as we can.

As such, we encourage you to remain followers of @yanksarecoming on Twitter and visit the site as often as you can. Plans for upcoming contests call for tickets to see the USMNT in California, an authentic jersey of your choice and even autographed memorabilia. If you have a suggestion for a contest, please do not hesitate to let us know (

Without further adieu, it is with great pleasure that The Yanks Are Coming announces @jenifary as the winner of the Nike USA 09/10 Classic Soccer Jacket. One of our staff writers owns the jacket and the rest of us wish we did. Simply put, she’s going to love it.

Again, thank you to everyone who made this contest a resounding success. Your efforts have not gone unnoticed by our staff. We hope you are enjoying the holiday season and wish you a happy new year.
