A Wonderful Looking Boston Red Sox DVD Set...

Hello on Wednesday morning yet again. This is Peter, and soon I will have a treat for my readers. A&E Home Video has been kind enough to send me a copy of a wonderful sounding Boston Red Sox DVD set called THE ESSENTIAL GAMES OF FENWAY PARK, and two extra sets to give away. I haven't received them yet because I just this hour heard back from A&E Home Video's Suzanne. But when you read what the DVDs are comprised of, I think you'll look forward with anticipation for something like this to make a rainy day with suddenly no Sox game, boredom and hunger for popcorn overriding everything, a great day anyways. I'll be back after you read this, with amazement, as I did. REMEMBER, the set is more than 16 hours running time!!! 16 hours of joy...

**************
This six-game, 6-DVD collection spans five decades of promise, heart-ache and jubilation, and salutes the legends and definitive moments etched in Red Sox history. Each epic contest in this treasured set was selected by the Red Sox Nation® itself, and the six remarkable games are nothing short of spectacular.

These are THE ESSENTIAL GAMES OF FENWAY PARK:
Sept. 30, 1967 Regular Season vs. Minnesota Twins® (9/30/67): Carl Yastrzemski hit his 44th home run as the Sox tied for the lead in a four-team American League® pennant race.
1975 World Series® Game 6 vs. the Cincinnati Reds® (10/21/75): This see-saw battle of the Titans ended with Carlton Fisk and his 12th inning game-ending home run.
Regular Season vs. Seattle Mariners® (4/29/86): 23-year-old Roger Clemens set the Major League record with 20 strikeouts in this hallmark game.
1999 Major League Baseball All-Star Game® and MLB All-Century Team celebration (7/13/99): Fenway Park was selected to house the final Mid-Summer Classic of the 20th Century and the festivities riveted the world.
1999 American League Championship® Series Game 3 vs. New York Yankees (10/16/99): Red Sox ace Pedro Martinez shutdown the vaunted Yankees and former Boston pitcher Roger Clemens with 12 strikeouts over 7 innings.
Apr. 22, 2007 Regular Season vs. New York Yankees® (4/22/07): Boston dispensed with its archrival Yankees in large part thanks to four consecutive home runs.

Peter here, and I hope you think it sounds as great as I do. I imbedded the order link. All you have to do is click on the title of this post. But I WILL think of a contest type of thing to be able to give the two extra sets to two of my readers, who are the best. So click on the title, and if you must have it NOW, go ahead and order it. My review, including video quality, audio quality and ease of use will be forthcoming as soon as I have it in my hands. My thanks go out to A&E Home Video, and especially Suzanne. Watch them on your local cable. Click on the title, and GO SOX.

P.S. I'm not "selling out." When I see a great Red Sox product, I am obligated to tell my Constant Readers all about it. And I will, as soon as it arrives at my door. If anyone has any contest ideas, WITHOUT knowing the answers (an impossible task), please let me know. And remember...A&E Home Video always puts quality first. I say this because every DVD I've seen from them has been so great!

That DVD set sounds really cool! It's too bad it was made too soon to put Lester's no-no on there.

"A&E Home Video always puts quality first"
You're right! My 07 WS DVDs are awesome! They come with different language options and allow you to choose which broadcasters you want to listen to.

I'll try to think of an idea for a contest (I won't be able to enter, though).

Maybe something with writing an essay/poem about Fenway Park? Or you could make it really interesting and put some type code into one of your posts (or have it run through a few posts) that we can try to deceipher.
I'll keep thinking...

T^hanks Brittany, but I think I'll think of something else, something simple, so that you will be able to enter. I'll come up with something when they arrive and I watch a few minutes of each disc to guage picture quality, sound quality and ease of use of the menu function. Thanks, though. You are THE BEST!

Peter:

Perhaps you could run a contest similar to the one I'm running now, with the Celtics. What you do is ask folks to consider an upcoming series or game or series of games, and make their best guess concerning the numbers that will be put up.

I asked for total point scored by the Celtics from May 20th until end of their playoffs. You could ask for total runs & hits & errors by the Sox for some one week period or two week period.

Just a suggestion.

Sull, hey! Believe it or not, I finally came up with something. The competition might be heavy, or there might not be any at all. But I still will have two giveaway sets, thanks to A&E Home Video. Postage included! Great to hear from you.

Postage is courtesy of...of...err...hmmm...me!
