You Mean You Guys DO Give a Damn?


A couple of weeks back, m'man Movie Joe axed me to plug this charitable endeavor. Seemed like the least I could do, even though I had my doubts that any of my readers would donate. "Tough economic times", I expected to hear. "The holidays are around the corner", would be a convenient excuse. "Aaron is f*cking annihilating me and 18 others in the postseason baseball pool", would've been a good one.

Instead, some of you DID give! Your contributions helped push the total past the $100,000 mark, so a tip of the cap to the TBG contingent who helped out.

Now, as part of my original post, I agreed to offer up a "donator's choice" of blog content for anyone who pitched in. I've got a couple of requests in the queue, but there are a few more of you who donated without – apparently – wanting anything in return. What's wrong with you people?! Drop me an email or leave a comment if you wanna cash in your request.

Meanwhile, I've got some writing to do. Longtime Friend of the Bootleg, "That Mexican Guy" – who married WAY outside of his league – contributed by way of his wife. (S)he used up his suggestion – sorry, just one per household, Mex – on a peek at my spicy tuna salad recipe. Seriously.

Anyone want me to finish that critique of the A's 40th Anniversary Team?

Anyone?

No?

Forget you, 'den.

Oh, I can't stay mad at you guys. My readers kick ass.

I will gladly donate to this worthwhile cause just to avoid your gloating "I told you so" post re: the World Series.

Pfft, you can fool me Sean.

I mean *everyone* was picking the Rays, right? Surely, I didn't look into the face of public opinion and spit in its eye...did I?
