Boston, you know we love you madly

So as you may (or may not) know, I am a Red Sox fan. As you may also know, if you are a fan, the Sox will be in DC in June for a three game series against the Nats. This is exciting, since it's inter-league play. Plus, the Red Sox are awesome :)

So anyway, about a month or so ago, I was reading about how to get tickets for this series. In order to do so, you had to put your name into a raffle. Rather then just buying tickets from the site as you would for any other game, you had to enter your email and then you'd get an email a few weeks later letting you know if you were or were not selected to buy tickets, should you wish to. Of course, I entered my email. I also asked Steve, my parents, my sister and a few friends to do the same thing.

Last night, I got an email saying I wasn't selected to purchase tickets. I was sad, but got over it quickly, because the Nats are offering another sort of package where you can buy tickets for nine games and the Sox were in one of those packages. However, my sister called me last night to tell me that she got an email saying that she was selected to buy tickets! Steve also got that email! So, boyfriend and sister can buy for tickets for each of the three games. That would be 24 tickets. This morning, I got to work and had an email from my father and one of my best friends saying that they were also selected to purchase tickets! So me, the one who really wants the tickets, wasn't selected, but four others that didn't care as much could! Granted, my sister, father and Heather are all big fans, but my parents are in NH, my sister is in Boston and Heather is in CT and these are mid week games (Tuesday-Thursday), so unfortunately, it is unlikely that they can come down.

All in all, I have the opportunity for 48 tickets for the Red Sox in June! I am really hoping that my boyfriend Joshie Beckett is pitching!

Any Sox fans out there?

I am so glad baseball season is arriving. I cannot wait to hit up some games this season... even if we (the Nats) are terrible. :-)

Good luck with the tickets! <333

I am a HUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUGE BoSox fan (being from Woos-tah and all)!!!! I can't believe you got that many tickets! I didn't even know about the raffle :-(

Quick, can we bffies so you have to take me... ? Kidding... but I WILL be at those games, by hook or by crook! Or by spending lots of money.
