Hey Red Sox Yesteryear,

I put a press release at the bottom of this email about this new rivalry league on RotoHog.com, a fantasy baseball website. It's a New York vs. Boston fantasy baseball league that any RotoHog user can join. Here is the link to the league so you can check it out for yourself:


I work in the marketing department for RotoHog and we are looking to get the word out and attract a lot more users. If you would mention our league or link to it on our site, we would mention and link to your blog in our newsletter that reaches more than 50,000 people. We╩╝ve also got a promotion going called the Golden Ticket Referral. If a RotoHog user refers 50 people, RotoHog will give away a Slingbox. You, and your readers are eligible for this. I have some banners that I could provide you if you wanted to promote this on your site.

Let me know if you are interested. I look forward to hearing from you.
