Mondo Wrongo

Just got an e-mail from some PR person asking me to promote a Red Sox fan who's in some fan contest. Among this fans super duper fan stories was this:

During game 7 of the American League Championship Series against the Yankees, Katie and her husband were at an Elton John concert in Las Vegas, and when the Red Sox came back with 2 outs in the 9th to win the game, Katie screamed to the entire theater that her team had won! Elton John himself then announced: “For those who didn't hear that crazy fan- the Red Sox just beat the Yankees!”

Whether the tale about Elton is bullshit or not, I don't care. What pisses me off is how the fan (or, more likely, the person representing the fan or the people running the contest) could get the history so wrong. They leave out the year but they obviously mean 2004. They say "Game 7," but the Red Sox led that game all the way and blew the Yanks out. They probably mean Game 4, but we didn't win that game in the ninth. We came back with two outs in the ninth, but the win came much later. I wanna know when this outburst really happened! John played Vegas on the nights of Game 4, 6, and 7. I'm gonna guess it came on the Papi dong in game 4.

Oh wow, Ben Mondor died. But that "perspective" stuff isn't making me less pissed about the above travesty. Hope she wins, but mainly I hope they clear that up.

There must be bootlegs of those shows, right?
Wait, this "super fan" was at an Elton John concert? Not, you know, watching the game?
Yeah--and maybe I should be more interested to see if the thing actually happened than what the exact moment they were really referring to was.
Mike: good point! hahaha
I mean Mister. Sorry, I read that as Mike for some reason...
I just got the same e-mail...same misinformation.
