Change Citizenship for $9.95

As threatened, the Boston Red Sox have begun issuing their Red Sox Nation membership cards. The listed benefits for 2005:

  • MLB.com Gameday Audio
  • ticketing preference
  • exclusive e-newsletter
  • access to members-only pages
  • membership card
  • special shop offers (no detail, I am assuming discounts)

The big deal for me is bullet point number two. If this frees me from Virtual Waiting Room purgatory, then I’m onboard. It’s a novel concept to generate new revenue streams. I understand why some fans are upset about the co-opting of the RSN concept and sentiment, but if this is a requirement to keep fielding competitive teams, it’s a price I’m willing to pay. Just get me out of the VWR. Nothing is more maddening than watching that counter taunt you.
