    Free Football Remote Control at Radio Shack

    Lookie at what I found the other day when perusing through Radio Shack:



    Listed at $9.99. So I thought, "what the heck... neat little gadget for the rec room", and brought it to the register. The girl there told me "Oh, we're giving that away for free if you let me give you a demo presentation on satellite television". You can choose another remote for free instead also--I can't remember what the other one was, but this one was more appealing to me personally. So, I listened to her presentation for about 3 minutes, told her I already had DirecTV, and she gave me the remote for free.

    It's kinda cool... a pre-programmed remote that is shaped and feels like a stuffed football and can control 3 different items. The batteries are in a pouch inside. You can even throw the thing around the room to your buddies and not worry about it harming the remote at all. I'm going to keep this one in the rec room, and I'm sure it will be a great conversation piece.

    Oh yeah, I remembered the other free remotes they're giving away. One's an American Flag remote, and the other is a golf bag. The golf bag looks like it would be great for the golfing fans. (I stink at golf) Perhaps in Canada they have a Canadian flag for our Northern brethren? ??!!!!

          Good "catch" Chris. :

          Since the Astros choked away a playoff spot and their season ended today, I'll have to get back into football mode. This'll be a cool way to start - heh, plus the Texans won their second game of the season today - woohoo!

            Yeah, I think that remote will do nicely at my party while the Broncos win the Super Bowl this year!
