Tessie on ITMS

I was looking through the ITMS Just Added page last week and I noticed that you could buy the Tessie EP.

In 1903, the Royal Rooters, fans of the Boston Pilgrims, turned Tessie into their anthem. The Pilgrims went on to win the first World Series. Later, the Pilgrims would become known as the Red Sox.

At the request of the Red Sox front office, the Dropkick Murphys have updated the old tune to aid the Red Sox in their continuing quest to bring a World Series championship back to Boston.

The other thing about Tessie is that it’s not just an attempt to aid the Red Sox in the World Series quest. All the proceeds from the purchase of Tessie are being donated to the Red Sox Foundation.

It’s good to see Tessie available on the ITMS — assuming the proceeds from ITMS purchases are also being donated to the Red Sox Foundation, this opens up a a new avenue of income for the charity.
