Kara, who wrote: My husband is a huge Reds fan. We just had twins 3 weeks ago (and have a 23 month old too).  He is really down right now with the craziness that is life with 2 newborns and 3 kids under 2 in diapers. No sleep is no fun. It would really cheer him up to have an awesome BOR shirt and the amazing DVD. We are both followers of your blog and love to talk Reds with each other, when we get the rare chance.

…..

For those of you who didn’t win today, sit tight and keep your head up.  I’ll be giving away something very cool today in recognition of “Cyber Monday.”  Also, the Umpteen Days of Christmas are right around the corner, so keep it here on Better Off Red

Thanks so much to all of you who continue to log on and support the blog (and the Reds).  It’s greatly appreciated.

Expect good news,

Jamie
