Long time reader from Rhode Island. I was heading out to a bar with some friends last night when we were stopped at the door for a cover charge. We asked if there was a band and the doorguy said no, Wade Boggs was there. We missed the first part of his apperance when he took a Q&A session, but got there for when he sat down to start signing things. Right when I was two spots away from getting my Sox hat signed, Wade gets up and the DJ hands him a mic. We were all treated to his rendition of ‘Friends in Low Places’ by Garth Brooks. Here is a link to the video I took on my cellphone cam, hence the quality. Pay attention though to youtube in the next couple of days cause there could be more and better quality versions.
Oh yeah, the event was sponsored by Miller and Wade was definitely taking advantage of the company’s tab.
Keep up the good work.
In one of the most brilliant marketing moves in the history of modern civilization Miller Lite has hired Wade Boggs to be their company spokesman. And as such the chicken man has been on a whirlwind tour of New England the last couple days. I swear everywhere I go now, Boggs is like 3 steps ahead. I mean somehow he was both in Seekonk last night singing Karoke and at our Nurse promo at The Greatest Bar demolishing Miller Lights. It’s almost like he willed himself to be at both places at once. I’ve never seen anything like it. He’s everywhere. We’ve even had to dedicate an entire switchboard to him here at the Stool just for Wade Boggs sightings. Anyway here is his official schedule for the rest of the week. But if the last 24 hours are any indication he’ll probably be ripping Miller Lites all over Boston and in your living room as well. And yes from now on I’ll be carrying my Wade Boggs 64 shirt with me at all times just in case I bump into him somewhere. I mean getting one of those shirts signed has to be worth a couple grand at least right?
