Long time, no write. I know we are all sad that our football team who showed so much promise now seems to be collapsing as always, but chin up. I STILL think this team is more fun to watch than any other team in recent memory, despite the joke of a game last week. (I was on a plane home from Seattle so praise the lord.)
Despite all of this, I thought it would be a good time to remind all of our dear readers about little Sally Kabel and her battle with Leukemia. As many of you remember, earlier in the year we got together with Store716, Trending Buffalo, and numerous other sports blogs to sell t-shirts and raise awareness for Sally and her family. The outreach and support was unprecedented, and I'm not ashamed to say I teared up several times from the e-mails, tweets, and phone calls I received about lending a hand. The Buffalo area & blogosphere are truly an amazing place.
So in case you haven't checked in awhile, Sally has been undergoing chemo while the rest of the family battles the Flu, so with the Holiday season among us, I figured this would be a good time to see what we can further do for the Kabel family. This leads me to two ways you can #SupportSally this week:
1. If you live in or near the NYC area, this Sunday, December 15th the DGWU Sports crew heads to McFaddens on 42nd & 2nd for the Bills/Jaguars game to sell #SupportSally t-shirts in person. McFaddens was sent a bunch of shirts from Store716 awhile back and we're going to be heading in to sell them for $25.00 each with ALL proceeds going to Sally and her family. I will be there with my wife, the Yachtsman, and even Joe from BuffaloWins.com, so look for us at one of the main tables. On top of that, if you buy a shirt and say "Buffalo Wins Sucks" I will buy you a Fireball shot. No joke. This might get expensive and come back to haunt me, but if it means selling more shirts, so be it! Please come join us, or at least spread the word to everyone you know in the area, even if they aren't Bills fans, this is a great cause. The shirts can make great X-mas gifts and help out a little girl very much in need of your help.
2. A dear friend of our blog, Frank Gifaldi (@fgif) has designed a shirt for 26shirts.com with all proceeds going to Sally and her family. 26shirts was started by Del Reid of Bills Mafia fame (and has been a huge help with the #SupportSally cause). This site releases a new Buffalo themed shirt every two weeks with all proceeds going to a charity of the t-shirt designers choice. Frank, being the awesome dude he is, chose to have everything go to Sally. The catch is, the shirt is only on sale for 2 weeks until December 22nd, so you have to get on it right away. On top of this, the shirts represents one of my new favorite unsung heroes of the Bills, Frank Summers, so it is definitely worth checking out...aka BUYING IT NOW!
Please join me in helping out our friend Matt, Sally, and the whole Kabel family. Spread the word.
