GRAND PRAIRIE, Texas -- A candy company has stuck to its word and sent a Texas man a Louisville Slugger glove nearly 60 years after a bubble gum and baseball card contest began.Darwin Day, 70, of Grand Prairie was cleaning his house and found a complete collection of Topps baseball cards from 1957-58, The Dallas Morning News (http://bit.ly/2cN1ARv ) reports. The cards were included with Bazooka bubble gum purchases.Day said he was prompted to clean out his own house after having been tasked with cleaning out the Virginia home that belonged to his brother, who died of cancer earlier this year.Day, who leads tours of Globe Life Park, has always been a baseball fan and at his brothers celebration of life, he led those in attendance in singing Take Me Out to the Ball Game.It was such a consuming job that it made me think that maybe I ought to clean out my own house, Day said. So I did that, and I came across these cards.One of the cards touted a contest: Win These Swell Prizes in the 4th Bazooka Baseball Contest. To enter, the card owner had to correctly fill out scores from some professional baseball games and remit the card.Day said no deadline was listed on the card, so he sent the completed entry card to an executive at Bazooka Candy Brands, a division of the New York-based Topps Company.It did pique my interest, this kind of mysterious letter, said Tony Jacobs, global general manager of Topps Confectionery Brands. Jacobs who joined Topps three years ago and manages the candy wing of the company, which includes Bazooka Bubble Gum.Day was in bed he received when he received a call from Rogers & Cowan, a marketing firm that represents Topps. They told Day Topps was going to honor the contest.His prize package also included T-shirts, a pillow with a Bazooka Joe comic strip printed on it and lots of gum.---Information from: The Dallas Morning News, http://www.dallasnews.com Darnell Savage Jr. Super Bowl Jersey .

They had already blown a double-digit lead, fans were hitting the exits, and a long seven-game road trip waited at the end. Matt Wilkinson lost the yellow rashie to John John Florence in Tahiti and now the Australian has been knocked out in the second round at Trestles.Surfing in California, Wilkinson was beaten by American wildcard Brett Simpson, who rode to victory on the back of his final two waves to beat the Australian.Simpson rode a 6.87 followed by a 6.93 on his final wave of the heat to edge Wilkinson by .24 points and advance to the third round of the event.In the beginning I was going to my old ways and catching bad waves, just doing dumb things, so I finally told myself to calm down and just ride waves, Simpson said.Just look at a wave and if I like it, just go and surf it out which ended up working out in the end.Ive never been in his position going for a world title being way up there and Im sure hes disappointed.The loss for Wilkinson means Florence will likely extend his lead in the title race after he easily advanced to the third round with a first round win, championship rival Gabriel Medina doing likewise.Wilkinson, wasnt the only Aussie to suffer a heartbreaking loss at the event, Julian Wiilson knocked out by Brazilian Alex Ribiero.ddddddddddddWilson rode a heat-best 7.83 at the death but still lost by .04 points.There was better news for Josh Kerr and Mick Fanning though - both advanced to the third round and Fanning was in ominous form.The now occasional tour star put on a clinic against fellow Aussie Matt Banting, riding two near perfect waves.First Fanning laid down an 8.83 in the first wave of the heat, he followed that up later with a near-perfect 9.77 to send a warning to the competition that he is in form and looking for yet another win.Theres amazing waves out there, Fanning said.Normally when you surf Trestles with no one out you just want to catch as many waves as you can and maybe we just had a good heat, but it seemed like it lined up really nice out there.Matt [Banting] surfed great, he just did some great turns.Im here to perform and surf the best I can to have some points roll over which is what I try to do each and every day.
