The past 24 hours have been astonishing in the world of www.MoonBigPapi.com.
First, David Ortiz released a gracious article in which he gave a shout out to our cause. This, in turn, opened the floodgates for a previously skittish NY media. We've been mentioned in a few NY Post articles, CBS Sports, and almost countless Boston media outlets.
I will tell you that it was positively SURREAL to be sitting in my living room last night listening to the announcers on NESN talk about us just before Big Papi's second at bat.
We've had about 10,000 new visitors to the site as a direct result of the above.
The best part -- really and truly the best part -- is that everyone gets it. They get that it's fun. They get that it will be monumental. I can't tell you how much it warms my heart that Big Papi said in his pre-game interview:
"That moon thing. Can you imagine? If it happens, I want to make sure I have my cell phone in my back pocket."I also got an email this morning and it also made my day:
Just hearing about this today. This is great!
I love the website and the energy behind it! Can't make it to the game, but I'm married to a Red Sox fan, so if it's all the same to you, I'll just moon her! Bottoms up!For everyone reading this, if you had no plans for tomorrow night, get on StubHub now and buy some seats. This will be more fun than you've had in years. Be there.
