Membership Has It's Privileges

Yesterday afternoon my cell phone rings as I am going into our mid-town office. I didn't recognize the 617 number, but answered it anyway. Much to my surprise, it was someone from Red Sox Nation. I won an autographed Jonathan Papelbon baseball and it will be mailed to my apartment next week. I don't remember the last time I won anything as more often than not I'm not eligible. It's one of the downsides to working in radio which I have become so used to that I rarely enter any contests. The even bigger surprise came this morning. My brother, who almost never calls me, called me at work to fill me in on the rest of the story. Apparently, the Red Sox Nation winners are announced during the live broadcasts of the game on NESN. One of his friends called him during the evening rebroadcast to tell him about my mention. I guess the fact that I live in Tennessee was a point of interest as it became a topic of conversation for the broadcasters. Red Sox Nation is truly nationwide.

Congrats on the house and on the contest for the baseball. Who knows? Maybe it will become a streak.
