I say sort of, because it was my own dunb fault by being inattentive. Back when Braden got his perfecto, I was filling requests for NRAFers foir shirts, SI magazines, posters, commemorative tickets and lanyards, the whole nine yards.
Well, I got a request from a college student who stated she
was a huge fan but lived in the midwest and could never get A's swag.
So, being the huge sofite ( sucker) that I am,I not only sent her Braden stuff but some other primo stuff I had. free of charge.and stating I only wanted reimbursement for the Braden swag.
I sent her a box of stuff. Unfortunately, I sent it on one of my "good" ( non-chemo recovery days)and did not pay attention to what I was putting in as I was so excited to be feeling well enough to send it..I mistakenly put in my snugglie. Later realizing my mistake,I mmediately e-mailed her and asked her to send it back
Amid her cries of poverty, I even sent a stamped mailing package.I kept getting excuses. It isclear to me now that she has no intention of returning it, despite my canceling all requests for reimbursement of the Braden swag for the return of my snugglie.
So, I've been ripped off, although by my own mistake.
One reason why I never minded sending swag to A's fans as far away as England is that the honor code has always been maintained.
So, if anyone has an extra snugglie they would like to sell or barter, please let me know.
