To increase participation over previous years, I am offering (thanks to my own insanity) what I think is a pretty neat prize:
A DVD-R featuring more than 13,000 files from the 2004 season. I'm still gathering stuff from various CDRs, but what it will include is every single Red Sox story (or at least 99.9% of them) from the Boston Globe, Boston Herald, Providence Journal, Hartford Courant, Springfield Republican, MLB.com, and many out-of-town papers; stories from the four main New York papers during every MFY series; photos from throughout the year, including many of the World Series parade; and a whole bunch of other off-beat stuff.To fill out the disc, I'm also including the last few months of the 2003 season (detailing all the Schilling and Slappy drama).
There are also more than a dozen video montages made by fans, guaranteed to bring tears of joy to your eyes; some of coolest footage is from the upper deck in St. Louis showing the final out of Game 4. Plus audio files of the WEEI broadcasts of ALCS Games 4-7 and all four World Series games.
Plus, there will be no tiebreaker this year. Everyone who comes closest to the Red Sox regular season record will win. (Is Franco still out there? He's won both the 2004 and 2005 contests!)
I'll accept emails until noon, April 2 (the day before Opening Day). Email me here.
Edit: Forgot something. Just for fun, also include where you think the Sox will finish. Something like: "1st, 2 GA NY" or "2nd, 4 GB Tor" or "5th, 33 GB TB".
