You Can Help Save Lives!!

20 Sep

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 scd@banyan.com.

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.
