Please Root For the Red Sox

So a lot of you know that normally I could care less about sports. Living in MA that has made me a bit of an oddity.

Well yesterday DW and I purchase a new mattress from Jordans Furniture. They are running a promotion that they ran last year. Our purchase will be free if the Red Sox sweep the world series. You had better believe that this year I will be rooting for the Sox with all my might.

Please join me in rooting for the Sox this year so that my mattress is free

I'm really not sure about the Red Sox GB. I usually prefer to wear white ones or navy blue.

Like middie said, will do, unless they are playing the Cubs or Padres!

Go Tribe.

But for you, GB.....

Did I mention the Indians?

Interesting special that store runs. I guess it's is more to show the owner's devotion than to draw in customers who think they will get a free mattress.
Gives you something to root for though.

With our DISH superstations package we get to choose 3, so we chose the Boston station they offered. Otherwise I wouldn't have a clue what you are talking about! Interesting ad and offer!

Oh trust me Adillo, I know all about the Yankees/Sox rivalry. I know plenty about the sox, I just do not get into watching the games.
