Please keep in mind that the bottom line to all of this is raising money for a good cause. Don't be an idiot about it. And if this all bores you so much, go read another blog. There are millions of them. I'm sure you'll find someone among those other writers who will irritate you less than I.
Re: the Sox cap -
I'm going to tell you what I've told a million other people today.
No one specified what type of Sox gear I was supposed to wear. I had no idea it wasn't a "legit' hat. I sucked it up and did what I said I would do for donations. I did something that literally made me feel ill (ok, slightly ill, I mean - it's just a freaking hat) because it raised money for Spirit of America.
Next time be more specific about your request and then I can be more specific when I tell exactly where on my ass to kiss me.
Now, where were we?
