Best. Day. Ever.

My Day with the World Series Trophy

Today was the Best. Day. Ever.

All summer long I’ve been scanning my season ticket holder card at games and watching for code words on TV to earn rewards points.  I used the points to enter a raffle… and won!  And it was the best prize ever – my very own day with the World Series trophy!

The 2013 World Series trophy came to my apartment and spent the whole afternoon.  It really makes sense, given how hard I’ve worked over the years to help my team win.  They surely couldn’t have done it without me!  (Yeah, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.)

So how did I spend my day with the trophy?  Just like any other day, only a million times cooler.

We woke up…

Rise and shine! We woke up...

Rise and shine!

had breakfast…

Wheaties - the breackfast of champions - of course!

got a snack…

Those are the magnets they give out every year on Opening Day all over the fridge. We ended up with some Pedro Salsa.

It was a busy day.  Good night!

Sweet dreams!

Believe it or not, I actually predicted this years ago.  When the Red Sox won in ‘04, before they even announced that they would be coming to all the towns in Massachusetts, they said they would bring it to the minor league stadiums, to spring training, to the Dominican Republic – all the spots significant to Red Sox Nation.  I said, “Well then they should bring it to my living room; it’s significant because that’s where I was when they won it!”  But even I didn’t think they actually would!  Special thanks to Chris and Donny of the Red Sox who put up with all the silly things my family and I came up with.  It truly was the Best. Day. Ever.
