I be like, dang.
this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
I be like, dang.
Ditto. I had to get in on that while I could.
pretty awesome response from the community
For all those who pitched in, thank you. It's awesome what Mgoblog stands for in the sports coverage landscape.
meanwhile, nytimes.com can stop trying to get 99 cents out of me for 8 weeks of access and go fuck itself while i google the article titles to read them for free because i sure as hell don't pay money to read stuff on the internet.
Anybody else think Brian should take the first $500 over $30,000 and to stage an MGoBlog site takeover of elevenwarriors.com? It'd be a good way to add even more schadenfreude to 11W's inability to raise funds.
This is genius
to Ohio fans... I'm pretty sure that you go to hell for that.
Yea, verily I say unto thee: consort not with the baseborn thrall whence cometh from Ohio, nor supporteth their propoganda, lest ye be judged and condemned with fire and thine household be putteth to the torch and pitchfork.

brian is humbled at the moment. There has to be at least a tear of pride being shed as i type! Go Blue!
1st post: I have been reading this site for over a year now and when Brian posted about his need for money for the magazine I thought, "In a week, I can help him out." Now I know why I am a Wolverine, because we are The Leaders and The Best. Hail to the Champions of the West!
First donation after roughly a year of MGoBlog info. Feels good to support the magazine and the site. Guilt be gone...
Congrats, Brian, et. al.!
I'm not going to be able to pitch in until this weekend. Will it still be accepted? Not really sure how this kickstart thing works.
so you'll be fine. I'm not sure when the amount you pledge is actually taken from your credit card though. It'll either be immediately, since the goal of $20,000 was met, or it'll be at the end of the 29 days. It tells you when you go through the process, I just don't remember.
Okay sweet thanks for the help. I've heard of kickstart but have never actually used it, so was just curious how it worked.
Note that your card won't be charged immediately, so if you're waiting for a payment to clear, you don't have to worry about it.
Wow, came in this morning and it's at $28,093. Way to go!
Got to work this morning and had no idea what was going on last night. You all did a tremendous job getting this started.
I just went over and made my contribution -- we're now closing in on $30K which would fund the entire project. That's just awesome.
I can't wait for my signed copy.
$30,000 mark about to fall.
And I, along with one other person that donated at the same time, was the one lucky enough to see the roll-over. YAY.
Congrats to Brian and the rest of the awesome MGOBlog team - if you ever doubted how highly your work is appreciated, this past day should erase those doubts.
This year's HTTV to come printed on heavy card stock with special holofoil embossing.
With Kate Upton pop-up? (schwing?)
We're at $29,999 with 785 backers. One more dollar!
I like to think that my donation was the most important of the 30k. Ha! but hell 30k in less than 24 hours...take that any natural disaster relief program and you too red cross.
Brian stated the $20,000 goal was to help fund 2/3 of the project. In less than 24 hours the mgoblog community has now funded 100% of the projected costs ($30,394 at time of posting). Very impressive
PS: Yay basic math analysis!
HTTV is in and of itself a worthy cause...however, now that that number has been blown out of the water, maybe think about kicking in a little something to the general fund...
This event deserves its own Blockhams strip...
We are always watching. Keep up the great work!
