Microsoft Giving away flowers and an Xbox360 Elite in Mothers Day contest

As we all know, Mothers Day is rapidly approaching. Microsoft has decided to take this annual holiday, and add a fun-filled contest to it. Microsoft is offering flowers and an Xbox360 Elite to anyone who can write a 250-500 word essay explaining how awesome their mother is, and more importantly, how she affects the gaming community. The contest will close May 6th, 2007. Contest entries will be judged based on creativity, originality, appeal to Xbox.com readers, and how well it conveys the feelings you have toward your mother/female legal guardian. If your mother frequently has helped you through those levels you just can't seem to pass, leads World of Warcraft charges, or simply supports your addiction to video games, please write an ode to your mother here.Source: 1Up

I could write how my mom has impacted gaming, hell she used to sit with me and my brother while we played or NES and SNES RPG games and write stuff down, remember where stuff was when we forgot, clues and all that. But, I already own a 360 and this will give someone else a chance to earn them one. Nice job MS.
