3:15 PM -- Why am I in the media? Two words: Door Prizes.

From The Philter email bag, another reason you'll usually see more bloggers than real reporters at a press event:

You're invited to play the "Caddyshack Open" at MobileFocus, the biggest media event at CTIA Wireless!

Swing by and tee off with all of the top names in wireless including AOL, Cisco, Dell, Linksys, LG, Microsoft, Motorola, Nokia, Palm, Panasonic, Qualcomm, RIM, Samsung, Sony Ericsson -- and many more…

The event takes place on Wed., April 5th, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m., at the MGM Grand's Studio Ballroom in Las Vegas.

Come early! The first 100 press to arrive will receive the 20th Anniversary Edition of "Caddyshack" on DVD starring Bill Murray, Chevy Chase, and Rodney Dangerfield.

Don't fear the gopher! To RSVP, please reply to this email and we'll send you a confirmation.

Fore!
Melissa.

Everyone's going to forward this to Dave Burstein, aren't they?
