The Red Sox might not be making big acquisitions this winter, but they made sure to deliver quite the package to season ticket holders for the holidays. The package itself is a video featuring none other than ‘Rudolph the Red Sox Reindeer’. How clever. A sing along song commences with the opening of the video, as well as a Red Sox-themed reindeer singing a lovely tune.
I don’t think I’ve witnessed this much cheese since the Patriots visited Green Bay. If I were a Red Sox season ticket holder (I wish) and received this video in an email promoting the 2012 season, I would cast my doubts on the desires of the Sox to put a true winning team out there on the field. I mean, the video does primarily focus on Rudolph the Red Sox Reindeer as opposed to Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen, and all the others. It’s as if there is a selfish focus amongst the Red Sox reindeer of putting themselves ahead of the entire lot.
Casting further doubt on the team’s merry intentions: apparently the greeting card, which can no longer be viewed online, is a violation of copyrights. At least that’s according to Character Arts, the company that represents licensing concerns for the “Rudolph” character. Boston Sports Then and Now has the full story.
Santa needs to get better control of this roster (and apparently the front office) before things get out of hand. Heck, I’m pretty sure I saw some beer and fried chicken in the background. Let’s hope the New Year brings about some real change.
