A quick story, and then I want to ask for your help.
Last week I heard Baltimore Mariners GM Greg Justice on the radio with Nestor. I had to call in. I had been to the last 2 games of the season, including the Championship game, and I have become a big fan. I had a great time attending the games and can’t wait to do so next spring. I wanted Mr. Justice to hear that. I got through and we talked for a couple of minutes. I mentioned that his quarterback E.J Nemeth looks almost exactly like Will Ferrell and that the fans have cowbells just seemed like a promotion made in heaven. He said that they had a cowbell promotion earlier in the year and they might have one or to left. He gave me his email address over the air and asked me to contact him so that I might get a leftover cowbell. Well, I did email him, he has emailed me back, and a cowbell is on the way. How AWESOME is that? Talk about being in touch with your fans.
I believe this kind of leadership, in this town, is the blueprint for success. So, I encourage you all to get to at least one Mariners game next year and let the Fun, Fast, and Furious action get a hold of you.
One another note, I have pursued and am very hopeful to get invited to participate in WNST’s next Baltimore Media Star contest. Let’s just say this…….You want me on the radio, you NEED me on the radio.
If it gets to the point where I am allowed my 15 minutes of fame and glory, I ask that you all listen. I will, through this blog keep you informed with how I do. I am very hopeful that this might work and can’t wait to get started.
