Yankees Love: Enzo’s Dugout Visit

We held a contest recently where parents and their kids ages 7-14 needed to record a video about why they love the Yankees and P.C. Richard & Son. The winner was randomly drawn from the submissions and received a once-in-a-lifetime trip to the Yankees dugout and 4 tickets to the game. The lucky winner was former Little League Yankee, PSP 3000 lover, and 7 year old Enzo Cupani. Here was his video submission:

In his submission, this cute seven year old said that he wanted his first “real league” Yankees game to be “really special,” and I think that we achieved that for him. Enzo was escorted by a Yankees rep to witness the players, his heroes, coming in and out of the dugout before their game on June 11, 2010 against Houston. The Cupani family wrote in and sent pictures to tell us more about their experience:

The Yankee dugout visit was AMAZING! It was beyond any of our expectations. He got 6 players’ autographs: Nick Swisher, Robinson Cano, Ivan Nova, Chad Moeller, Francisco Cervulli AND Derek Jeter! You didn’t make his dreams come true, because he doesn’t even know how to dream of this. The Yankees gave him more dreams to have.

P.C. Richard was very generous to extend this once-in-a-lifetime experience, and Enzo responded in kind. He gave away five of his six signed baseballs: to his cousin, neighbor, two best friends, and his baby brother. Many little boys (and their dads) are very happy! His whole life, he will be known as “the guy who met the Yankees.” A wonderful legacy.

200 Thank Yous to the P.C. Richard family, and the historic number of wins Andy Pettitte –my boyfriend in my head– achieved at this game!

Most Sincerely,
Deb, Joe, Enzo & Angelo

We are incredibly happy to hear that Enzo had such an amazing time, and his mother’s letter and photos touched our hearts. We wanted to share them will all of you!

Summer Gadgets from P.C. Richard & Son and Toni On! New York

Have you seen Toni On! New York on WPIX yet? If not, you should check it out. Hosted by Toni Senecal, this show takes you all over New York and dishes on the city’s best-kept secrets, tips, and places to go.

Earlier this month, she and her team covered summer gadgets at our store on 23rd Street. Brett Larson covered some great portable products we have available both in-store and at, including:

Flip Video UltraHD
“Don’t miss a moment of your time outside with the Flip Cam! These inexpensive cameras capture the moment with the push of a button and save from 1 to 2 hours of video. And, they slip right into your pocket when you don’t need them, so it can always be with you.”

Acer Ruby Red Netbook
(Previously covered on our blog as a hot deal) “This netbook will also come in handy for staying connected when you’re on the go. Netbooks sell for under $500, and, like this one from Acer, have Wi-Fi on board so you can connect to the internet while you’re away. Maybe do a little office work from outside the office, or just check your e-mails and surf the web.

(Also previously covered on our blog) “With FLO TV, you’ll be able to catch your favorite television shows wherever you go. The pint-sized devices tune into new digital frequencies and let you watch everything from news to entertainment shows. They come with 6 months of service included.”

“The latest PSP Go is smaller and just as fun. Games come on mini-sized discs that easily slip into your purse, pocket or backpack, and there’s hundreds of titles to choose from. Just be sure you pack plenty of battery power just in case your game goes long.”

Bose SoundDock Series II Digital Music System
“Take your tunes to go and let them sound their best with the Bose speaker to go. Just pop in your iPod or mp3 player and rock out.”

Monster Cable Lady Gaga Heartbeats High Performance In-Ear Headphones
“You don’t have to let the world hear your music with these Lady Gaga headphones. Yes, the Grammy Award-winning Lady Gaga. They’re the same headphones she wore in the video for her song Telephone.”

Monster Cable Dr. Dre Headphones
“If Lady Gaga headphones really aren’t your thing, check out the Beats by Dr. Dre. Drop it like it’s hot, Toni!”

Here’s the clip from the show:

You can catch Toni On! New York on WPIX Saturdays at 6PM.
