LA Angles of Anaheim – ECO Bag Giveaway (May 22nd)

Thanks to the wonderful people at Nitto Tire they have created a LA Angels of Anaheim ECO Bag giveaway for May 22nd vs. the Atlanta Braves! What makes it cool is that the photo on the ECO bag is my HDR!  Sweet!  So if you are a baseball fan and live in Orange County and happen to hit the game on the 22nd…enjoy the ECO bag!  I am a big sports fan and must admit, I love it!  Added to that I took this shot one early Sat AM last summer for my wife as she is a big Angles fan!  So it makes it special!   If you click on the Angels schedule…then promotions for that day…here is what you see…

Good luck Angels on the 22nd!!  Wish I could make it out to the game!!  I’d love to see the fans carrying the bags!  =))
