It’s not really necessary for me to include the year is it?
David Freese made a name for himself (and probably millions of dollars, soon?) and found himself on the cover – that’s it at the right – of an A+E Networks Home Entertainment/MLB Productions package of one of “Baseball’s Greatest Games: 2011 World Series, Game 6“.
Still bummed about the way the 2012 NLCS ended? Bored with no baseball on for another few months? Need something to keep you warm through the holidays?
Look no further than ol’ PH8. We’re your huckleberry.
Courtesy of the good folks at A+E Networks Home Entertainment/MLB Productions, we’ve got two copies of Game 6 on Blu-Ray (and DVD’s are included too, so be sure to enter even if you don’t have a Blu-Ray player!) to give away. FOR FREE.
So here’s the deal: post your Game 6 story in the comments below. We’ll pick a couple of the best and ship you the discs.
For instance, my story is this…
I was watching the game by myself, in my basement (naturally, right?), and by the time the ninth inning had rolled around I was well into the process of convincing myself that the Cardinals had made a great run and losing in the World Series to a sort-of-juggernaut Texas Rangers team wasn’t so bad. Then the first Freese happened. Then the second one. I screamed a lot, and woke up a sleeping child two stories up. I received phone calls at close to midnight from many, including my father-in-law. There are several videos about YouTube showing fan reactions, one of which is a guy rolling around on his back like a turtle and cackling – that may as well have been me on the floor of my basement, relishing an improbable win. Then remembering there was another game to be played. Fun.
Tell us your story in the comments below, and you might win a copy of Game 6 that you can watch and have the same reaction all over again.
We’ll close the contest at 5pm CT tomorrow (Tues 12/11) night and announce the winners shortly thereafter.
