Want To Buy A World Series DVD Set? UCONN Women Win Their 42nd Game IN A ROW!

Hello on Saturday morning. Finally, the weekend. I just came across this news blurb from the Associated Press and I wanted to share it with you.

***************

"A 20-DVD set of World Series films can be bought for $2,299, and it contains authenticated autographs of 12 Hall of Famers, including Yogi Berra, Bob Gibson, Reggie Jackson and Mike Schmidt.
A limited edition run of 100 sets was put together by Major League Baseball Productions, A&E Home Entertainment and Mounted Memories, the companies said Friday.
There are 65 films from 1943-08 that run for more than 50 hours. The package also has autographs from Johnny Bench, Gary Carter, Bob Feller, Rollie Fingers, Carlton Fisk, Whitey Ford, Brooks Robinson and Bruce Sutter.
MLB spokesman Jeff Heckelman said the set is also available without the autographs for $179.99 on MLB.com and in stores with a suggested retail price of $229."

********************

I think the autographed set is very overpriced (that's quite the understatement ) and the set priced at $229.00 retail (way less at Baseball Direct,,,click on the title!!!) would make a terrific holiday present. I might order it for myself at $169.99. In fact, I think I will. Remember, click on that title.

In the world of women's college basketball, the national champion University of Connecticut team still rules. Last night in Worcester, Massachusetts, they rolled past an overmatched Holy Cross team, pummeling them by a score of 87-34. The game wasn't even as close as the score indicated but Holy Cross knew what was in store for them and they relish the chance to play the number one team in the nation every single year. The last time they defeated the Huskies was 1986, so there were no surprises Friday night up in Worcester. None at all.

Well, that's it for this short Saturday pre-Thanksgiving post. You can click on this post's title for more Red Sox coverage, slim as it is, and as always, BE WELL. Have a terrific weekend.
