It has arrived: the Bleacher Nation Blogathon. It’s 40 hours straight of blogging thanks to your generosity to Make-A-Wish. The 2021 MLB Trade Deadline is tomorrow afternoon at 3 pm CT, and I will be blogging/tweeting/videoing/whatevering from now until through the deadline and through the Cubs/Nationals game tomorrow night. It’ll be 40 hours of fun, madness, and hopefully lots of enjoyable/stomach-able rumors and trades.
You can expect to see a lot more content than usual around here, as well on our various social media channels. You’ll want to follow BN on Twitter and like it on Facebook to maximize your Blogathon enjoyment. Join in the fun on Twitter by using the #BNBlogathon hashtag (I’ll be sharing your tweets here throughout the Blogathon, so use the hashtag!).
At last check, we were just shy of $11,000 given to Make-A-Wish, which is incredible. You are all amazing (and you can still give here if you haven’t and want to). I plan to hit up today’s Cubs-Reds series finale, where I’ll be in the bleachers trying to do this and that. And if we somehow topped $15K to Make-A-Wish, I’d probably do the thing where you get the helmet nachos and then just put the half-eaten thing on your head. And I’d wear it the rest of the Blogathon. It’s quite all right if we don’t get to $15K, though …
I am ready for 40 hours of GRINDING. And maybe some tears. Let’s go. Time for me catch up on the overnight stuff while I was getting my last sleep for a while.
