Rumors flying, and I went to go buy The Wife a birthday cake. In public. Wearing the Rally Bucket.
Six hours in, my friends.
We’re just getting started. Here’s how things are going so far.
It begins. 38 hours of madness. And fun.
I’ll be blogging for 38 hours straight starting Thursday morning, and I’ll be wearing something very special the whole time.
The Wife, Gretchen, has an offer for you – and an important story to share from a friend.
The Cubs have worn the rally bucket hats when it was most critical, and now I’m offering to do it for 38 hours straight. I think it would probably be awful.
A BN’er is stepping up to match your donations today and tomorrow. You can double your giving power!
Don’t miss your chance to win things and stuff and cash and have fun!
The pitching’s a little thin, but I loaded up on big bats.
Get the bat before Jorge Soler erupts in the second half, thus rendering all Soler bats impossible to find.
You’ve sponsored a full wish for Make-A-Wish, so I’ll hold up my end of the bargain. Of course, you could get even more …
That’s a win, win, win right there. Here’s how you can make it happen.
Your donations have been fantastically generous already. I can feel myself drifting in a pre-emptive sleep …
It’s fun, it’s free, and you can win real cash. Oh, and it supports BN, so that’s cool, too.
I’ve got an offer for you that will lead to a lot of fun and baseball rumor coverage, and also support for a really great cause. Please read.
Those are real dollars on the line. The overall winner on Friday takes home $100,000.
Hundreds of thousands of dollars, a signed Starlin Castro bat, and free BN shirts on the line.
Harper, Stanton, and Trout in the outfield for the win.
You could probably do some things with that kind of cash. Buy a sandwich. Or maybe a Ferrari.
Take your crack at winning an all-expenses paid trip to the 2015 All-Star Game.
I went heavy on Dodgers (at Coors), Cubs (because I’m a homer), and Cardinals (because voodoo). Still mulling whether that’s the right approach.
Yeah, I already signed up. I really want this. I guess it’s OK if you play, too.
How many Cubs to use this time …
If you’ve been waiting to check these out, here’s your chance to play for free.
I would recommend selecting players from more teams than just the Cubs, though.
