Wanted: Your Brilliant Words In Exchange for Glory and $100

You've already read Cajun Boy's opus on the subject...now prove to the world that you, in fact, are the King of Boldness, by sending your 500-word essay/blog post/epic poem/manifesto to Deadspin at contests@deadspin.com with "My Boldest Experience" as the subject line. The best (funniest, most compelling, least lame) of the bunch will be published here on Deadspin, and then you can revel in that particular glory and gloat to all of your friends who have Internet access. And you'll win $100 AMEX gift card with which to buy things.

So regale the universe with the story about the time you basically saved the world, behaved particularly bravely, staved off a mugger with your stand-up skills—whatever you consider "bold." Entries are due by 6 PM EST Monday, March 5, 2012.

And if you need a little inspiration, check out the BlackBerry® Bold™ 9900/9930, providing all the power you need to boldly go anywhere.
