Dig this Tom Petty contest

tom petty spreads his arms to the world, proving once and for all that his anti-persperant is better than mine.

Tribune, the company that owns The Sun, has a pretty cool contest going on right now, where you can win a VIP trip and front row tickets to see Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers at the Hollywood Bowl.

You take a pop quiz, and then register for the contest.

Check it out

I took the quiz, and got four or five questions correct. Then I whiffed one about an actor in a music video. Oops. ...

The L.A. Times also put together an insightful behind-the-scenes video about the making of the band's new album, "Mojo." Petty can be reclusive about his life and music, but he opens up in this video.

I think as a Tribune employee, I'm forbidden from entering the contest. But if someone named Stan Sesna happens to win, well, we're not related. At all. Promise!
