Beginning next month, Boston Public Middle and High School students will be able to sign up for wake-up calls from Big Papi.

The calls, which will be recorded, say "Wake up! It's David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox. Get out of bed and get ready for school. Your future is yours!" 

Tommy Chang, Superintendent of Boston Schools is hoping the calls will help the kids get to school on time as well as fight absenteeism.

I'm a pretty sound sleeper. I'm thinking a call from AC/DC's Brian Johnson would be about the only thing that could get me out of bed.
