St. Paul Saints Beat Winnepeg Goldeyes at CHS Stadium, Host World's Biggest Pillow Fight, Enter Guiness Book of World Records.

MY PILLOW put on a big, comfy promo last night at CHS Field in St. Paul. Idea was to conduct the largest pillow fight, ever, win a listing in the Guinness Book of World Records.

Pillows were handed out to ticket holders by eager MY PILLOW staffers.  At the end of the 2nd inning the feathers started flying, and folks were taking swings at the guy in the next seat, in front, behind -- people they'd never seen before.

Fun, fun, fun 'til daddy took my pillow away.

The excitement was palpable and the Saints promo guys and gals kept the enthusiasm going and growing.  This pillow fight was a BIG DEAL.

"Scott" sat behind us in Row 10 of Section 106.  As the sign on the back of his t-shirt says, he collects $$ for PR whenever Saints sluggers hit it out of the park.  Scott was working overtime last night.

Cozy little meet, greet and chill areas gave impression of corporate entertainment venues.  Nice mural art came from old stadium, if I remember.  Pillows can be seen, everywhere.  Folks took this deal very seriously.

Last night was also Saturday Night Live theme night.  The Blues Brothers entertained, and some guy hoping to be as cool as Steve Martin performed a rendition of "Funky Tut."  Remember THAT?

All too soon the magic was over. Sun had set, lights come on, record set -- 6,400+ pillow fighters, plenty of feather combatants to make it into Guinness.

As my Friend and seat mate John said:  "Seth, it's perfect.  Saints games are always a hoot.  This one this evening is a double-hoot."
