Last Friday’s “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” song contest at Boston Logan International Airport must have been a hoot.
Ten brave Boston Red Sox fans showed up at the new Jerry Remy’s Sports Bar & Grill in Terminal C and sang their versions of the springtime classic in front of a panel of “celebrity” judges and loads of curious travelers.
Alan Rogers of Warner, NH won first place in the singing contest and will get to sit with Red Sox broadcaster Jerry Remy in the booth at a Red Sox home game. Here’s a a video of Rogers singing his winning version of the song.
On Tuesday, April 7th, Red Sox fans willing to sing a version of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” at Boston Logan Airport will have a chance to win prizes, impress other travelers, or simply make fools of themselves. You – and Wally the Green Monster – can help decide the winners.
The contest is part of the opening celebrations for Jerry Remy’s Sports Bar and Grill, located pre-security in Terminal C. (Remy is Red Sox Nation President and Boston Red Sox Sportscaster). The first place winner will receive a Red Sox road game package that includes airfare, hotel stay, and tickets to see the Red Sox vs. the Chicago White Sox in Chicago on Labor Day Weekend.
The second place winner will get to bring a guest and sit in the broadcast booth alongside Jerry Remy during a Red Sox home game. The third place winner will get a $50 gift certificate to Jerry Remy’s Sports Bar & Grill.
Don’t want to sing? Wally the Green Monster will be taking photographs with fans and Remy will be signing scorecards from the 2007 World Series. They’ll also be raffling off Red Sox memorabilia.
The “Take me out to the airport” singing contest takes place Tuesday April 7, 2009 between noon and 2 pm at Jerry Remy’s Sports Bar and Grill, located pre-security in Terminal C at Boston Logan Airport.
