IIATM's Charity Challenge

Movin' this to the top because it will be more important for people to see this over the weekend than my half-baked ideas about the Yankees . . .

I mentioned this yesterday, but as a reminder, Jason at IIATMS has issued a Charity Challenge, in which anyone giving $100 or more to the Jimmy Fund or the American Cancer Society's Making Strides Against Breast Cancer event will earn themselves a right to a free post.

Jason has inspired me, so I will match the offer and give a free post on ShysterBall about anything you want in exchange for a $100 donation to either of these worthy causes. Wanna call me a jackass? Great. Wanna explain the 57 ways in which the Braves and all of their fans stink? Have at it. Wanna talk about how the government has been stealing your garbage and documenting your comings and goings? Hey, you may be right, so definitely be my guest.

The only rule is that you keep it relatively clean and relatively civil, and I'll consider relaxing that rule if your donation is big enough.

So give up some coin to fight cancer and you can share in the same fleeting, modest, and somewhat pathetic bloggy fame which I currently enjoy. You'll be glad you did!

CLICK HERE and HERE to donate.

Note: Tadthebad has already donated $100, and Jason is giving him a post. Since he helped spur this baby, I'm giving him a free ShysterBall post too. And no cheating Tad: you gotta write something different here than you do on IIATMS, because I plan on linking that one anyway, and I want to maximize my ability to generate posts on the backs of other people's labor.

Awesome. Just awesome.

Two posts! Gee willickers, I don't know if I can deliver, but I'll do my damndest.

Thanks, guys. This whole thing is cool.

I have confidence in you Tad. Take your time and come up with something at your leisure. Shoot me an email with it whenever you have something.

Clearly, you guys don't know me very well. And I'll do my best to keep you thinking that I have a clue (unless that time has passed also).
