Thousands of Red Sox fans are hoping that their team will win the World Series, not just because they are loyal fans, but because they stand to get free furniture.
Free furniture?
That's right. Thanks to a promotion at a regional furniture chain, nearly 30,000 people might get free couches, dining room tables, beds and mattresses.
Story
Did You Buy Furniture at Jordan's Way back in March and April, Jordan's Furniture ran a promotion: buy any sofa, dining room table, bed or mattress, and if the Red Sox win the World Series yeah, go ahead and make your favorite joke about the once-cursed team then the price of the furniture will be refunded.
Now, that championship could very likely be a reality, and millions of dollars' worth of furniture could be given away.
Tatelman would not say exactly how much furniture Jordan's sold during the "Monster Deal" promotion, but did say it was just short of 30,000 orders. He would not give a dollar figure.
But generally, most people bought more than one item. Tatelman said that one customer could get $40,000 back after they furnished their whole house. He also said a motel in New Hampshire bought a large amount of furniture during the promotion.
Boy what a promotion, Free tacos if a base is stolen, free furniture if the Red Sox win.

Even Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino and Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper are getting in on the action, making a friendly wager.

If the Colorado Rockies win the baseball championship, Menino will send Hickenlooper New England clam chowder from Legal Sea Foods, coffee and Boston creme doughnuts from Dunkin' Donuts, Curse Reversed ice cream bars and Boston You're My Home ice cream from Brigham's ice cream.

If the Red Sox win, Colorado will send over Quizno's sandwiches, Celestial Seasonings teas, Great Western tortilla chips, Epic Valley salsa and Liks Rocky Road ice cream.

The winning mayor might end up needing a larger desk chair after eating all that food.
Everyones getting in on the bet.
