RemDawg Nation, And It's Card.

I ask you...is this really necessary? I was a reluctant convert to the RSN card. It's not for me, but there are those out there who watch the games on their computers who do get a discount, and there are other percs as well. I still think there is a faint odor of corporate greed involved, but it's OK if people are happy with their plastic testaments of unwavering Red Sox fandom. But this seems a little bit like overkill. Another way to make a buck. The business of baseball. Here is the advertisement culled from the Remy Website. I do want to strongly stress that I have always been a big fan of Jerry Remy, back when he was on the field, and now, in front of the cameras and behind the mike as he adds his particulat brand of greatness to NESN's coverage.

" Welcome to RemDawg Nation!

I love the RemDawg...but I so wish he would stop with the self-promoting, money making crap.

At least I know the money I give to the Red Sox goes to the team...the money folks give the RemDawg goes right in his pocket.
