John Krasinski and Big Papi Honor Healthcare Workers With A Hook-Up!
It's no secret that former star of "The Office", and now host of his own positive news series, "Some Good News" aka. "SGN", John Krasinski, is a baseball super-fan. The team he roots for; The Boston Red Sox. And he, like baseball fans across the nation, is going through withdrawal, as baseball season hasn't been able to start because of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Also like so many other folks across the nation, John Krasinski has become a fan of another group of folks; healthcare workers. In his latest installment of "Some Good News with John Krasinski" he decided to bring those two things he loves so much together, in an attempt to honor some fellow Sox fans, who also happen to be workers on the front-lines of the Covid-19 battle, with a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
He made sure to bring in the big guns to help him. And by big, I mean Big...as in Big Papi! David Ortiz himself, joined Krasinski, to deliver the news to members of the Covid Unit at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, that each staffer of the hospital would be receiving four Red Sox tickets...for life! The Red Sox organization donated the tickets and arranged for the Covid-Unit staff to take a special Duck-boat tour to Fenway Park, where members of the Red Sox team, along with Boston's Mayor and the Governor or Mass gave the healthcare workers a round of applause (on the jumbo-tron) as thanks for the medical personnel have done.
There was one other surprise Krazinsky revealed at the end of his show, and that is that AT&T had decided to get in the game and honor healthcare workers with another major contribution; 3 free months of cell phone service.
It's a pretty great piece. Take a look! (Red Sox stuff starts at 9:13 into the show.)
