The Dodd campaign's lame fundraising idea to raffle off two tickets to the American League Championship series in exchange for donations to his campaign hit a big snag... it violates MLB rules.
Dodd was offering a chance at winning the tickets to those who donated $20.04 to his campaign. Of course he is running in 2008. So Dodd, as usual, is a day late and 4 cents short. The 2004 however, was evidently a reference to the last year the Red Sox won the World Series.
The worst part of winning the tickets was that the winner would have to sit with Senator Dodd. If Ted Kennedy happened to show up, presumably the booze and loose chicks would be complimentary. But we will never know; after MLB objected, Dodd called off the event.
I suggest a new sports fundraising idea for Dodd. He could raffle off tickets to the next Hartford Whalers game. Dodd may make it to the White House by the time professional sports returns to our state.
