The Battle Was Over By The Time I Showed Up

I missed the great hashtag battle of "ought-10"! I also missed out on another petty use of Twitter blocking by Dater but we'll skip past that.

The L.A. Kings fans won the battle and I can't help but think that had I been around Saturday night, this whole thing would have turned out differently.

Alas, I was not. However I would still like to add my contribution to the mix.

Generally, I tweet maybe once or twice during a game. But with the stakes on the line Saturday night, I'm surmising I would have put up closer to 100 tweets.

So what I'm going to do is donate the $100 I would have raised Saturday night to charity. I don't know the specifics of where the Avalanche directed their money but if anyone does know how I could funnel it there, please let me know.

If nobody knows, I'll pick another cancer-related charity. With Movember looming, possibly something to do with prostate cancer. If anyone has other suggestions, feel free to share.

Hopefully the Avalanche - and every other team in every other pro sports league - does this again. And again and again and again and...

I want a day to day photo blog of your Movember attempt, sorry Shane but I have this feeling that peach fuzz is even difficult for you to grow :P

Hah, money's my way out of trying to contribute an actual mustache! I could go a year without developing anything substantial.

On the plus side, I save a lot of money each year on razor blades...

That's awesome man! He, what is your twitter blog account? I'd love to have my blog follow yours. Here's hoping some decent D shows up in Vancouver tonight.
