I wanna be President! Of Red Sox Nation

Because it's the most pathetically lame fan participation idea ever. After listening to ESPN, reportedly the deal is that you have to spend $14.95 to join "Red Sox Nation". Then you're entered in the lottery to be the President of Red Sox Nation.

I'm in. Only because they apparently will have a "President's Day" type event where you get to go to Fenway and be king of the dorks for a day. I am all over that. Fifteen bucks for a lottery ticket where the prize is that I get to go to Fenway wearing my Don Mattingly Jersey (Of course, given the status of the season, perhaps a Bucky Dent jersey?) and ruin Red Sox Nation day? They had me at hello...
