First of all let me thank you for the overwhelming response to this month's group break. I was surprised to see how all the slots filled up so quickly and I thank you for your quick payment as well.
OK. This is how this will work. As with claiming your first team it will be first one to leave a comment claiming the team gets it. Everyone with the exception of BA Benny gets to claim one additional team. BA gets 2 teams as he had 2 slots. Which teams are remaining you ask? Lots of good teams. I'm surprised actually at some of the choices. Where have all my Red Sox fans gone?!
I also need to ask one more favor of everyone. When you claim your team please let me know if you would be interested in viewing the break live via UStream or a pre-recorded video. You can e-mail me your choice too. I'm still looking at opening the boxes after next week's Marquee break so we have time to schedule something. If we do the live thing it'll most likely be sometime after 9:30 pm EST due to my family requirements. Just chime in w/ your choice - live or pre-recorded. Thanks!
