Stogie Guys Friday Sampler XXX

9 Feb 2007

In our ongoing effort to make StogieGuys.com as entertaining and reader-friendly as possible, each Friday we’ll post a sampler of quick cigar news and stogie-related snippets. We call ‘em Friday Samplers. Enjoy.

SI-Delgado1) If you look at the top right corner of this week’s Sports Illustrated, you’ll see New York Mets first baseman Carlos Delgado smoking a cigar. We’re pretty sure it’s a La Gloria Cubana Series R because, back in September, we wrote this article about various Mets players celebrating their NL East Title with cigars.

2) Let us be the first to nominate this Conoco gas station for the Best Gas Station in the World Award. Outfitted with sofas, chairs, a 48-inch plasma TV, and a walk-in humidor, this Webster Groves, Missouri business is the first gas station/cigar lounge on the planet.

3) Here’s something new to us: TNT Cigars (a Stogie Guys sponsor) is now offering mobile ordering via text messaging. How it works? We aren’t really sure. But if you do order, don’t forget to claim you free torch lighter by including the code “stogie” at checkout.

Contest Prize4) In October we told you about some crazy guys in Alabama who smoke cigars while running marathons. Well, this weekend they are about to do it again. If you happen to be in the Birmingham, Alabama area stop by the Mercedes Marathon and bring a cigar. You can even contact the “Running Stogies” and join their pit crew.

5) Congrats again to Kevin, the winner of the first annual Stogie Guys Super Bowl Contest, who received the five cigars pictured. And for all you Bears fans, don’t worry: We’ll be back next year!

    Well, at least Da Bears made it to their sport's championship game. The heavily-favored Mets got toasted by the Cards before making it to the World Series.

    By the way, that gas station looks badass — even if it is in St. Louis.

    The cigars look nice. I hope Kevin, wherever he is, enjoys them.

    darn I was hoping the link would have some images of this godly gas station.

    … maybe a road trip? 🙂

    I live in StL and had no clue about that Gas Station. I am going to check it out!

    Mark –

    Why don't you take some digital photos and send them in so we can see what this incredible sounding place looks like!
