    I've run this thread before, but skipped last year... Because we didn't put a team in... Because my knees were fucked.

    This year, my knees are still fucked, but dammit, I'm playing charity volleyball anyway. I'm 42, how many more years can I drag my ass out there?

    Where in previous years, I was the main spiker guy, this year I have a guy that is college/near-Olympic level playing on my team... I'm actually looking forward to letting someone else do the heavy lifting while I get to focus more on managing the team/raising money for the charity.

    You guys all remember the deal: Anyone who donates $50 or more gets a t-shirt. $100 or more, I can get you two t-shirts.

    ALL DONATIONS GO 100% TO THE CHARITY. NOTHING GOES TO ME, MY TEAM, EXPENSES, EQUIPMENT, OR ANYTHING ELSE.

    The tourney is March 14th, so any donations need to be in by Friday, 3/13. Paypal (boostedfc@hotmail.com) is good, but you can write a check as well.

    TiB will be pimping this on twitter in an effort to gain more donations.

    But in order to be noticed on Twitter with things like this, you gotta be funny. The current idea is to call out old athletes and challenge them to relive their glory years vicariously. Of course, "athletes" is up for debate, so Obama's gonna get it, Joey Chestnut will get it, Takeru Kobayashi will get it, Sin Bad will get it, maybe some OJ and his attorneys mixed in there... hey, accuracy by numbers.

    Any and all ideas for who else to call out to donate (and how to call them out) WILL be tweeted, and I will keep you updated on the success of what you submitted.

    Wow, this is legitimately creepy.


    Apparently when you tweet Obama, the your tweet does not show up on public feeds, you cannot link to it, and it otherwise doesn't exist... Until someone approves it?

    All I wanted to say was "@BarackObama Just because you beat Reggie in bball doesn't mean you can beat us in vball! Wanna try? https://www.facebook.com/PutnamLionsClub"



    And Reggie is in reference to Reggie Love, his long-time friend, workout buddy, basketball heal and personal aid.

    "Ask a Secret Service Agent" thread anyone??

    While I can't donate money because I have a toddler who eats me out of house and home, I have promised to donate my time via the TiB twitter.

    Donations don't have to be in monetary form; it's "give what you can, where you can." (For example: Anyone good with websites? I think they could use a killer one!!)

    I would do a "gofundme" thing, but am afraid that comes across as scammy. Anyone have any other good ideas?

    Well my idea was for you to have the TiB jackals write your GFM pitch for you, with an emphasis on humor, sarcasm and "lets make this shit go viral!"

    We'll see. At least my hat is in the ring.

    Who am I to deny a request to get drunk (and donate)? Done and done for $5O USD ($66.81 CDN), cause who doesn't want a super cool t-shirt?!

    Come on TiB, loosen those wallets and help your brother out before the deadline next week.
