Submit a Maryland-I/Minnesota-I meme and fame*, fortune**, and a TDG t-shirt*** can be yours!

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

I can't be the only one who enjoyed today's ESPN SportsNation chat session with Coach Kill a great deal. And something tells me I'm not the only one who enjoyed it a great deal because of the presence of an excellent question submitted by a fine, upstanding member of the TDG community.

Hats off to you Wacker Era Survivor for your tireless efforts on behalf of all of us. The writing staff would also like to thank everyone else who submitted Maryland-I questions that never saw the light of day. You are truly doing Goldy's work out there on the interwebs!

That moment alone would have been enough for a great Internet day. But then Matt decided to start crafting Maryland-I memes:

The second I saw this, I knew what had to happen...

A MARYLAND-I MEME CONTEST!

So here's the deal:

- Create your very own Maryland-I (or Minnesota-I if you prefer) meme and post it in the comments. Memes should be in picture or GIF form. You can submit as many different memes as you'd like.

- UPDATE TO RULES: So, I sort of jumped the gun without realizing we had to use actual rules written in an official fashion (please see below for those) so voting won't determine the winner. A random drawing will be used to determine the winner and per the rules any entries you see from TDG staff won't be included (we wouldn't have included us anyway but now we're legally verboten).

But we're still going to do a voting post based on a selection from the TDG staff and the prize will be bragging rights. Why? Because bragging rights are awesome.

- The TDG staff will select their favorites (maximum of one per TDG community member).

- Those favorites will be posted and a poll will be created to tabulate your votes.

- The winning meme will become part of the common TDG vernacular and the creator of the meme will win a new car a new TDG t-shirt bragging rights!

If you're the winner of the drawing, just tell us which of the TDG shirts you'd like including size and color (if applicable) and we'll ship it directly to you so you can celebrate your internet fame in style! Just don't let it go to your head like Johnny Football.

It's that simple!

Don't waste any more time on work!

Start crafting your award winning memes now and share them in the comments!

----> ACTUAL FINE PRINT - OFFICIAL RULES <----

OBLIGATORY FINE PRINT
*Fame is not guaranteed by The Daily Gopher or any of it's writers
**Fortune is not guaranteed by The Daily Gopher or any of it's writers. To be honest, you're not going to make a dime. We're not giving away money and if BuzzFeed rips off your meme there is no way they are going to offer your credit much less royalty payments.
***The t-shirt thing is for real though. The winner of the contest is actually going to get to pick out a TDG t-shirt that the staff will buy for him/her.
