    I was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to send me a copy of the Boston Globe the Monday after the Patriots win the Super Bowl. I live in Dallas and obviously will have a hard time obtaining a copy. Just send me a private message and we can arrange the details.

    And Ian, you may delete this if it's considered spamming.

    Not quite the same. I understand where he's coming from, not living in Boston myself.

    I have a friend who sends me all the Globes from big sports events. I have the 2004 Wold Series paper framed on my wall, as well as the ones from the Patriots Super Bowls.

    Most big chain-style book stores carry newspapers from other US cities, and even other countries.

    Places like Borders, Barnes & Nobles, etc. have them, usually near the periodicals.

    Interesting. I wonder if the Barnes & Noble here in Dallas carries the Globe. Will have to check into that.

    Thanks everyone!

    My experience with that is that they don't really get any more copies for big out-of-town events like that. So on the day after the game, if I go down to my local Barnes and Noble it's quite possible other New England fans in the area will have thought the same thing and scooped them up. That's why I have a friend who sends them to me.

    You can order copies directly from the Globe and Herald as well.

    Why would you want the Globe?

    They will lead off with front page coverage of the Red Sox equipment vans being packed for spring training. Then there will be a story or two about Clemens/steroids. Then a juicy feature about Manny Ramirez' kid's nanny who speaks five languages fluently.

    By time you get to the bottom of the page there will be some blurb about the Patriots winning the NFL Championship.........with a next page feature on how Dustin Pedroia watched the game.

    If the Pats win, none of the NY-owned newspapers will carry the story....oh, wait, right.....gotcha.

    If some enterprising member of the board wants to earn some $$ by sending copies of the newspapers to us out of towners, count me in.....

    I am next to positive there are some speciality magazine stores or newpaper joints in your town that will carry the Globe.

    I live in Halifax and there is one or two down the street that sell the Globe, so I assuming that in the various other US cities, you would be able to get it.

    It's harder than you might think. I once spent an afternoon calling all over the Boston area to try to get a copy of the Chicago Tribune with no success. Even Out of Town News only carried the Sunday edition.

    After the 2004 world series, I went to Boston.com (Globe) sports and they had an order the famous "Finally" edition option. I think it cost $2 or $3, and the paper showed up within a couple of weeks, very securely wrapped.
