A Cool Red Sox eBay Auction

My friend Fred Cantor contacted me today and told me about a really cool auction going on in conjunction with the single "Monbo Time."

A video of the song by The Remains has been put together, and you can actually become part of it. There is an eBay auction currently going on, and the winner of it can include a picture of their family as part of the video.

"Monbo Time" is a cool little ditty about the Red Sox and was recorded in support of one time Red Sox pitcher Bill Monbouquette and his fight against leukemia. 100% of the proceeds from the auction will benefit the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and The Jimmy Fund, and the WEEI/NESN RadioTelethon, which will run on Thursday and Friday.

The winning family's bid will be incorporated into the song with the lyrics:

Today we are three generations, Our kids have been to Fenway too."

Really cool stuff. The winners will also receive a genuine 1968 Red Sox scorecard, and a 2004 program from the stage musical about The Remains, "All Good Things."

If you'd like to make a bid at eBay, please click this link. You have until next Wednesday, August 25th, to make a bid.

Here is the first two minutes of the video for "Monbo Time." Enjoy.
