I think they all had found different ways to deserve a Storm. After looking at just these few entries, I don't know how Kevin and the rest were able to narrow the entries. They were tops in all thier catagories, I'm glad I can just sit on the sidelines. Good Luck to all

I vote for the Storm Quilt because it is the only entry that involved any sort of talent or skill, not that the pudding wrestling was talentless. ;-)

1. The Storm tattoo looked horrible
2. Sawing a Treo in half was kind of lame
3. It isn't pudding wrestling unless you're knee deep in it
4. Crackberry Gump would have run 20 miles anyway
5. Getting shot with paintballs took guts, but not brains
6. Dropping a Treo from a parked B-52 isn't what we had in mind
7. Five tattoos? We only saw 2 of them and aren't even sure they were on the right person...
8. PieRate kind of scares me. Getting pied at night defeats the purpose.
9. Storm Quilt will actually benefit a charity. I've never made a quilt, but it sure looked tough.

Congratulations to all of you that won storms. Some of you earned them and others, well you have Storms so it doesn't matter! =)

King sized storm quilt... simple and original choice
couldnt help noticing all winnes were from the US.

Kevin Michaluk

Not Quite. One winner, CrackBerry PieRate, is from Canada. But yeah.. I was surprised too! That wasn't part of the data collected on the entry submission so we had no idea where the winners were located when chosen.

A lot of CB's traffic is from the USA, and the Storm on Verizon had a lot of excited, so perhaps that explains it... or else maybe US CrackBerry Addicts are the Crackiest??!!?!

Its a toss up between the quilt and the paintball dude for me... What happens if there is a tie lol sudden death?

History to the PiRate - we had to drive two and half hours one way ,then we had to drive back the same night ! thats 5 hrs driving to Toronto this cost us 120$ gas money at least to get this project done!!! To do the video then it got dark on us & we were like oh damn - had no choice but to do what we can .. we had a good time doing it though hehe. The Pie it self was pretty hard work actually to make something and have it come out nice. Baking is not as easy as it looks...

Then the ceramony for the inferior cell phones lol
that was not too bad , but I did not have a video camera had to use bb bold for the video.

put alot of effort into this .. project and well the video may not look as good as it could have due to low light but it was a real effort for crackberry nation :)! Well worth it over all.

I just wanted to congratulate all the winners and wish you all the best.

As far as effort, the Quilt was the best... Only because it has a lasting effect. Someone could actually snuggle up and wap CrackBerry from their Berry all cozy and warm in the rocker.

Yes, the paint ball was 'paint'ful...lol, it did say, "what would you do?" So, that part was held true.

The full size tattoo, same thing, held true, and of course, lasting. But, hmm!

The pie, well there could have been more effort in that. It didn't take a whole lot of effort to smack yourself with a pie... as a matter of fact, the pie wasn't even eaten. It was wasted on the ground. As far as the comment of how much was spent in gas... oh well, you said you would do it. You should have planned better for it to be viewed during the day. What? did you leave at 6 or 7 pm at night for it to get dark 2 1/2 hours later. Heck! you could have left at 0900 in the morning and had plenty of day light left. It was pitch black and you couldn't see a thing.

Pudding wrestling... uh, ok!

Sawing a Treo, I "saw" better days... lol (I got an iPhone I'd saw in half for a storm, wish I'd said that!)

Five crackberry logo's... uh... yeah!

Running 20 miles: did we actually follow the whole 20 miles or just bits and pieces? of course, I will give you credit for wearing shorts in the freezing cold...

Anyone can put together a video of bombers destroying stuff, to then say "I'm just gonna drop it out the window" probably landed on a stack of mattresses so it wouldn't hurt the poor thing.

All in all, one thing counts... All of you got the storm, and I did not. Congratulations to all of you who won.

CrackBerry: We're not just a forum, we're a family!

See yah all in the forums

Happy Thanks Giving all.

I think tattoo girl is gross. I'm not against the tattoos, nor am I debating the authenticity of them but why the hell would u get them in such private places if they're something ur gonna put on a website? The pic of the tats btwn ur legs is NASTY and u should be ashamed of urself. The bold only costs $600, u should have bought it and kept ur dignity. SMFH!

angiebutterfly

Well if I've learned anything from all of this, I now know how easy it is to "win" something on here. I'm looking at YOU, pudding girls. Nice work playing that game, and that is not sarcasm.

But anyway, congrats to all! CrackBerry Gump and Storm Quilt all the way!

The only thing that kept him sane was his BLACKBERRY. KEVIN HAS TO POST THIS VIDEO UP. HE HAS TO. THIS MAN WAS LOCKED IN HIS HOTEL ROOM AFTER TERRORISTS ATTACKED IN MUMBAI.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/7754046.stm

British businessman Mark Abell managed to escape from the Oberoi Trident Hotel.

He had barricaded himself inside his room when the militants stormed the building on Wednesday.

Mr Abell said the Indian hotel staff and the security forces had been "fantastic".

buddywow

It was the 3rd thing he needed for survival he says. After food, water, number 3 he said was his blackberry.

I'm stuck between the storm quilt and the paintball guy...the quilt was very creative, but the paintball guy's entry was soooo crazy! I think I'll have to go with the paintball guy. It grabs your attention, makes you laugh AND cringe. Overall it was very entertaining (jackass style)!!!!

i WILL DO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO WIN A bb STORM. IT IS AN ABSOLUTE FAILURE WHICH IS "DEAD ON ARRIVAL". i WAS GIVEN ONE FOR A GIFT.

robotaholic

the paintball man ruled-
any grandma can quilt up a storm (lol) but i doubt alot of ppl after seeing the paintball dude would take 100 hits

It would be alot easier to take the 100 paint balls than it would be to make a quilt...

I ain't no grandma...lol

Yes! it may hurt like he!! but to me, anyone can do it...

I don't think just anyone can make a quilt.
