Movie Giveaway: Win THE BEST OF ME (Tears of Joy Edition) on Blu-ray Combo Pack! #BestOfMeInsiders

Nicholas Sparks knows how to grab those heartstrings and violently rip them pull on them in just the right way to evoke an emotional response from his audience. Whether it be from his original novels or their cinematic adaptations, Sparks' work is roughly 99% effective in producing tears, and that's why it's so appropriate that THE BEST OF ME is being issued in a special "Tears of Joy Edition" just in-time for Valentine's Day.

Giveaway: Win WILD OPHELIA Valentine's Day Chocolates!

The Rock Father is a Wild Ophelia Blogger Posse MemberWhen I first came across Chicago-based Wild Ophelia's all-natural chocolates last summer, I was intrigued by the vast array of unique flavors that had been crafted by artisans across the country. Now, as a member of their "Blogger Posse," I occasionally get to try out some new flavors and assortments, most recently their new Valentine's Day varieties: Tart Cherry Caramel Milk Chocolate Bites and New England Style Salted Caramel Dark Chocolate Bites. These little hedgehog-shaped chocolates are so good, I couldn't keep that to myself (and I didn't, my daughter gobbled some up)... so YOU are getting a chance to win a box.

1997: The Year I Ruled Walmart... and Met My Wife (Win a pair of Windows Phones!) #MeetYours

Updated September 7, 2014 - After a year-and-a-half on the Windows Phone platform and experiencing problems with devices made by both Nokia and HTC, I can no longer support or recommend the Windows Phone Platform.

1997. That was the year that I became highly desirable to women... wait. Let me start this off a bit differently. 1997 was, according to my wife, the year I "ruled Walmart." She likened it to the way that "jocks" rule the halls of a high school... the way my friends and I, my crew... ruled a certain Walmart in the South Suburbs of Chicago. She reiterated this tonight when I told her that I was going to be writing a Valentine's Day-inspired "How We Met" blog as a part of my affiliation with Microsoft as a member of Team Windows Phone. "You guys were the sh**," she said.

Make-A-Ball:Cool Customizable Sports Balls for all occasions (20% Off Discount Code!)

During the Holiday Season, the folks from Make-A-Ball reached out to me about their line of fully-customizable sports balls. I didn't get to feature them on the site back then, but with Valentine's Day approaching quickly, Make-A-Ball came back on my radar with their customizable "Love-A-Ball" gift ideas. While those are cool, in thinking ahead to spring training, their baseballs struck me as being pretty rockin'. In fact, I'm having a custom baseball crafted right now with THE ROCK FATHER logo crest emblazoned upon it!

Giveaway: gDiapers gift of love gPant benefiting Hands to Hearts International...

giftoflove2X's and O's. With Valentine's Day fast approaching, there will be many of those seen floating around in the weeks ahead, but as a Dad with two daughters, X's and O's are a part of daily life. X's and O's represent kisses and hugs, and together those symbolize a gift of love. That said, it's quite fitting that gDiapers' new gift of love gPants (available today) are emblazoned with X's and O's all around. Launched to benefit Hands to Hearts International, these new, limited-edition gPants are far more than just a part of an "adorable eco-friendly diaper" line, but a symbol that "Hugs and Kisses can Save a Village."
