WE DID IT! THE SOX ARE WORLD SERIES CHAMPS!
What a game last night. It was totally worth staying up late (and being a little bit tired today) in order to celebrate with Boston and Red Sox fans all over New England. The excitement hasn’t stopped and as promised, today we’re thrilled to announce our winner from yesterday’s Game 6 Guessing Contest.
The winner is… GARY WUNSCHEL who predicted the Sox would win 7 – 2. Congratulations, Gary!
And thank you to everyone who participated yesterday. We’ll be sure to hold more fun contests in the future, so make sure you keep stopping by Fuel For Thought.
Oh boy. This is it. Game six of the World Series. The Red Sox are home in Boston and we’re hoping our bearded boys can end the Series with a win tonight. Something that hasn’t happened in 95 years!
Everyone at the office has made predictions for tonight’s game, and we want to know what you think! Will we win the World Series tonight? How many runs do you think our Red Sox will get? Will it be a seven game series?
Share your thoughts in the comments and if your predictions come true, you’ll be entered to win a $100 Sullivan Tire Gift Card and a pair of tickets to a 2014 Red Sox game!
All guesses have to be in before the start of the game tonight (that’s 8:07pm EST). So, make your predictions, and GO SOX!
(We’re hoping this Red Sox Shrine will bring the Red Sox luck tonight!)
In his piece today, Edgers argues that “we’re on the big stage again and our credibility’s at stake.” The whole article is worth a read, but a few choice quotes really stood out:
- Edgers describes his “World Series Nightmare” as “swaying to soft rock as our championship run screeches to a karaoke-choked stop.”
- Describing the song as a “largely forgettable, three-minute slab of Velveeta with a distinct creepiness…”
- And, “We don’t need baseball-ready Prozac to make us forget what we’re watching.”
So, what do you think? Is Sweet Caroline past it’s prime as an eighth inning “pick me up”? Or is it a tradition that’s not to be messed with? Is there another song that Fenway should adopt? Let us know in the comments! (And most importantly, GO SOX!)
Saturday was a beautiful day for Boston sports, and our Weymouth, MA Grand Opening Celebration!
Our massive baseball inflatable and Big League Brian were on hand repping the Red Sox, and the Bruins Hummer stopped by for part of the day as well. Refreshments and games were provided all day, and we raffled off some great Boston-sports prizes, like a Greg Campbell autographed hockey stick, Bruins tickets, and tickets to Game 6 of the Red Sox.
It was a beautiful day to celebrate our newest location, and our great Boston sports pride.
