Scratch off Sox

Here's an interesting article Shannon brought to my attention. Soon in Massachusetts you will be able to buy Boston Red Sox scratch-off lottery tickets where the top prize is season tickets to Fenway for life.

I immediately told some co-workers about this story, which prompted one fellow Yankee fan to shout out, "That's no prize!"

No, not for Yankee fans. But we may get our chance soon enough. The Red Sox are the first MLB team to strike such a deal with a state lottery commission. However, the article says several other teams--inlcuding the Yanks and Mets--have plans to follow suit.

The Red Sox lottery tickets will sell for $5 and also offer other prizes, like Red Sox cruise packages and jerseys used in games, as well as more traditional prizes of up to $1 million.
