Thanks MLBPA Players Choice

You know those contests on Twitter where you ‘retweet’ to win something that you know that you will never get. Well this is the story of how I won, one of those contests. A few months ago, I was having a really bad day. I suffer from anxiety and depression. Some days are better than others. This was one of those extreme days where I had to put everything on hold and say ‘I need a time out for a little bit.’ So I did something that no one can get away with in this day and age of technology, I turned my phone off and didn’t go on my computer. I watched Netflix while I studied until it was time to get my nephews from school. It was in the car waiting for them at around 1:30 and a little bored. Consequently I finally turned my phone on. My phone blew up with notifications. This wasn’t normal, as I don’t get a lot of messages. It was all people congratulating me on winning a contest. I won a beautiful signed Clay Bucholz jersey. As a low end collector, I own only one other autographed jersey and it is that of an NBA journeyman that I paid $12 for; so this was a nice surprise.

They didn’t say which jersey that I was getting until I won it, but I was so happy that it was Clay Bucholz. He is one of those of those player who I accidentally started collecting. The type of collection where you suddenly look one day and go ‘I sure have a lot of his stuff,’ so you actually start collecting more of that player.

With depression you need every win that you can get. This wasn’t just a win, this was like adding a championship. It was great. The package arrived within 2 days and I waited about a month to open it for when I was having another bad day. Below are the pictures. I would like to thank MLB Players Choice again and I suggest following them@MLBPAClubhouse. I regret not posting the pictures on my Twitter earlier.
