Derby #385 Pullover Hoodies
Are you looking for more Derby in your life? IT’S HAPPENING!
So a while back we noticed, and perhaps you have, too, that there's a lot DOWN TIME in the derby. It's a couple of days of rip-roaring fun and then everyone sitting around for four or five days wishing they had something else to do. What a waste, we thought! Not to mention we have some massively talented artists at our fingertips but no easy and fun way for them to help us design products like totes, aprons, journals, stickers, etc. Again, what a waste!
We took the problem to the Woot code-monkeys. "We're too busy!" they scoffed. So we purchased a dozen donuts and approached them again. This time they replied, "We can give you two derbies a week, no more." Good enough for us!
Starting this week we have the ability to do up to two derbies a week. Occasionally we might do only one, in which case the derby works like it always has. When we run with two, here’s how it’ll all work:
In October we launched the $25K Cup, our month-long money-chucking frenzy that gave derby and daily artists the chance to win big. Who won? Whose designs triumphed? Whose cuisine reigned sup-wait wrong thing.

The Philadelphia Spirits continue to dominate the league, scoring every which way imaginable short of their mascot being run over by a golf cart. Can they hold on to their lead with a bye this week?
The October $25K Cup is officially underway! $10,000 to the bestselling daily tee, $10,000 to the bestselling derby tee, and a few thousand here and there for the also-rans to get us all the way to $25K. It's not too late to throw your hat in the ring! Or your design. We'd actually prefer designs to hats...
Here it is, your first look at the rankings. The Philadelphia Spirits and Washington Werewolves "earned" an extra 25 points last week by each having a player ejected. The Sewer Gators had a similar "achievement" in week 2. Take a look at how it's all shaking out.
Missed the draft for your brother-in-law's seriously hostile fantasy league? Fret not! You can play with us instead. Here's how:
The Shirt.Woot $10K cup in July was such a big success we're going to do it again -- only bigger! In October we'll be doing a 25K Cup, and this time we're getting our daily artists in on the fun! Here's how it's gonna work:
Last month we announced the 10K Cup, our big bid to hurl an additional $10,000 at one worthy arteest. We saw some great contenders over the course of July's four derbies, but the design that sold the most shirts on its first day can only be ...
