We’re having another one of our famous Celtics Life giveaway contests this week and to help promote Score with a Song, State Farm has been kind enough to offer our readers a chance at some fantastic prizes.

  • $300 NBA.com gift card
  • $200 gas card
  • Adidas Boston Celtics Paul Pierce Revolution 30 Swingman Road Jersey OR Adidas Boston Celtics Paul Pierce Revolution 30 Swingman Home Jersey (winner chooses the jersey)

Yes one lucky Celtics Life reader will win all of that!

View State Farm’s exclusive interview with Paul Pierce at scorewithasong.com. They talk about his first car, pre-game rituals and more. The site also features an interactive instant win game, exclusive video interviews with Paul Pierce, LeBron James and other All-Star players, and a sweepstakes where entrants will get the chance to win a VIP trip to Las Vegas to meet NBA greats.

If you could ask Paul Pierce one question during an interview, what would it be? 

To participate in the contest all you have to do is leave a comment below asking Paul a question. The contest will start now and run through Monday March 28. To be eligible to win the above three prizes you must limit yourself to only one question for Paul. Anyone leaving more than one comment will have all of their questions disqualified.

State Farm will choose a random winner using random.org, but in order to verify the identity of the winner, you must either leave your comment "signed in" or if you don't want to sign in you can leave your name and a place we can contact you (for example your twitter address or facebook address). You can leave that information in the url field. We will contact the winner on Tuesday March 29th. I also must mention that I was hooked up with a $50 pre-paid debit card for hosting the giveaway, which will most likely be used on pizza or auto insurance. One of the two.

Good Luck!
