A new way to get attention for our jerseys: Get Attention for the BlogMarch 12th, 2012 by Al Lewis (alewis)
OK, folks, to paraphrase the immortal words of the great philosopher Humphrey Bogart, the problems of 6,479 little people don’t amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world. (Hopefully that number will rise too, though I suspect it will fall at first. Some of us in this ALS support group are actually dying.)
No one except those of us who have suffered with ALS care about our jerseys, it would appear. We couldn’t get the attention of MLB. Or, to put it more accurately, we got their attention, got their approval, and then some anonymous person there put the kibosh on it at the last minute.
So I am going to post a series of more general-interest great ideas, the equivalent of the ALS jersey idea but of more interest to more people. If you like the ideas you can share them broadly and get more people onto this site and eventually someone will “notice” us in the real media and we can state our case more broadly and perhaps shame MLB into what they couldn’t do out of goodness (and they would have made a profit too).
Each idea will be in a separate posting, so that you only have to forward the ones you like. None of them are political. My own politics are “severely moderate” and in any event I would not use this site to advocate for anything other than the jerseys. I will post about one idea a day for the next five days.
