Screw Mark. Send ME to Florida

Jiminy. If I'm going to raise money for someone to go to spring training, it is going to be ME. I'm stuck in Nome, Alaska here with all the daggone snow and I'm hating every minute of it.

Some time in the sun, some baseball, some good food and drink at night - your money will be put to good use.

Only one problem. All you'll get out of me is sincere appreciation and some warm fuzzies.

Mark Zuckerman? He'll actually cover the team. So your money is probably better spent with him. Read his current post at his blog and click to donate.

Then if you still have money left, send some my way. If you have lots left, send all the bloggers to Florida. We'll make sure to have fun while Mark works his tail off.

Your money will be in good hands with me. It will be in better hands with him.

Yeah, and I'll go root, root, root for the home team for round-trip airfare and a box of Cracker Jack. ;-)

Seriously, though, thanks for the heads up. I'll donate to the cause as well.

won't contribute to your trip, but if our plans come through, we'll send you info!

Thanks. I was being somewhat facetious. I'm not really going (as much as I would love to go).
I really do want to see Mark get there because he'll provide an outstanding level of coverage - while he's technically a "blogger" he's more of an actual reporter with his knowledge, background and - most important - access.
Most of us with blogs provide commentary and analysis and fun and we should be read. Regularly.
But Mark will provide the high level of actual news coverage we all need to be informed as fans.
(wow, after that, he really DOES need to send me some of that loot!)

Yes, I got that you were being facetious. To clarify, I meant that I'd donate to the Zuckerman effort, which I have. Not that I don't enjoy reading your stuff as well, which I do.
