The Red Sox bounced back from a 2012 season they’d rather forget by turning their won-loss record virtually upside-down. 93 losses in 2012 turned into 97 WINS in 2013! It’s a little weird for us (a NJ company) to have rooted so hard for the Red Sox this year, but hey, they chew Jolt Gum. So do a few other teams (more on that later), but unless you’re a Cardinals or Yankees fan (or a fan of anyone the Sox were playing), how could you not root for the team that was so supportive of their city after the marathon? And unless you’re a brand manager on Gillette, how could you not dig the Grizzly Adams or ZZ Top team photo? It’s Halloween every day in Boston!
Sure, it’s easier to have fun when you win, but a lot of teams win and don’t look like they’re having nearly the fun the Red Sox seem to have. Indeed, just listen to Victorino – “Go back to playing little kid ball. Just go out there and have fun.”
Anyway, as we were saying, there are 3 Major League Baseball teams that chew Jolt gum… and ALL three went to the playoffs this year. Did Jolt Gum help? Or are the teams that chew Jolt Gum just that much smarter? Not for us to say. But what is for us to say is that the first person to calculate the probability of ALL 3 teams making the playoffs (30 teams in MLB, 10 make the playoffs, 3 chew Jolt Gum) gets a free 12-pack of Jolt Gum! Happy calculating!
