As the Phillies played (and lost) their final home game of the season and the circus that was the Eagles game (they lost to Andy Reid’s Kansas City Chiefs) leaves town, I have something else on my mind today. And I promise, this will be my last plug for my very stylish “Baseball Rocks” T-shirts.
But September is National Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month. And for every t-shirt purchased, a percentage of the proceeds will go to the Ovarian Cancer National Alliance.
I want to thank everyone who has already bought a shirt, and some of you have even purchased several!! I can’t tell you how much that means to me and how great I felt making my first “t-shirt” donation.
22,240 women will be diagnosed with ovarian cancer this year. One in four of them will lose her life to the disease within a year of diagnosis.
Please consider buying a t-shirt (did I mention they’re very stylish? And unisex!) to support research that can change those numbers for the better.
OK, I’m done. Except to remind you that the t-shirts only cost $14.99; they come in M, L and XL and to order just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Now that wasn’t so bad, was it? A lot less painful than watching the Eagles lose to Andy Reid and the Chiefs last night in front of a national television audience. They said it was no big deal having their former coach on the opposing sideline but the Eagles sure played like they had seen a ghost.
They had five turn-overs in the game, four in the first half alone as they lost in ugly fashion to the Chiefs 26-16. Andy Reid and his new team will leave town at 3-0 (the Chiefs only had two wins all of last season) and his old team? Well, after their promising first win against the Redskins the Eagles will fall to 1-2. Ahhhhh, what a difference a change of sideline makes.
In conclusion, the Phillies are heading down the home stretch while the Eagles may never win again at home (0-8 in their last 8 home games) but you can hit a home run by buying a Baseball Rocks T-shirt and helping to support the fight against ovarian cancer.
