Rover's Million-Dollar Catch
August 6, 2007 at 3:45 PM (PT)
CBS RADIO Alternative WKRI (92.3 K-ROCK)/CLEVELAND syndicated morning host ROVER hopes to catch BARRY BONDS record-breaking 756th home run tonight at AT&T PARK tonight (8/6) as the SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS return home to host the WASHINGTON NATIONALS.
Of course, there's a huge "catch" here. Literally. ROVER will be attending tonight's game, and if he happens to catch the historic home run ball, one lucky listener drawn at random from an online contest sponsored by MILLER LITE will win $1,000,000.
ROVER is using his own money for travel and expenses, but he partnered with MILLER LITE to insure payment of the $1,000,000.
"Unfortunately my net worth isn’t quite that high yet," ROVER quipped. "And my home station 92.3 K-ROCK is pretty cheap, so I’m thankful MILLER stepped up to the plate with the cash."
ROVER plans to stay in SAN FRANCISCO and broadcast live throughout the week or until BONDS slugs the record-setting homer.
