PawSox Fan of the Week
The thing I love most about working in the Red Sox farm system is the fans. There’s a good chance that you love your minor league teams more than any other fans out there. I experienced this firsthand during the 2009 season when I worked for the Portland Sea Dogs and we had fans in the ballpark for all nine innings during those cold, rainy April nights.
I’ve been told that fans here in Rhode Island are just as passionate as those in Maine and I’m wanting to see it first hand. That’s why we’ve created a new contest where we’re seeking out the PawSox Fan of the Week.
It’s pretty simple: send me a picture showing why you are the biggest PawSox fan out there. We launched this contest yesterday and I’ve already received about 15 emails. While some of the pictures are good, none have blown me away. Although pictures of you, the fan, from McCoy Stadium cheering on the PawSox are nice, what I’m really looking for is a picture taken specifically for this contest. Deck yourself out in all your PawSox gear. Dress your brother and sister up like Paws and Sox. Build a replica McCoy Stadium in your backyard (too much?). Bottom line, do something over the top.
What will you win if selected? The winner receives four tickets to the PawSox double-header on April 7. Plus you’ll be entered to win the GRAND PRIZE of 4 tickets to an upcoming 2012 Red Sox game at Fenway Park with a limo ride to and from the game! Of course, you’ll also get your picture posted to our Facebook wall.
Email your (over the top) picture to me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the headline “PawSox Fan of the Week.” Tell me you heard about the contest from this blog and you’ll get extra credit points.
The winner will be announced Friday afternoon.
Don’t let me down.
