They might show a few clips on the 10 o'clock news.

How much coverage did the Red Sox get last year for their banner raising?

I need a big favor from one of you guys.

I really want this one badly, but I live in Germany and can't catch the Pre Game stuff - only the game from ESPN 2.

VHs or DVD - both would work for me.

I will cover all the costs of course.

Just send me a PM and we can work out the details.

Thanks in advance

Go Sox

Same here! If anyone is willing to Tivo these and burn DVD or VHS copies, I'd chip in for media and postage.
