* We fielded a bunch of phone calls today for “Eagle’s for Erinn”. I also have about 15 e-mail submissions for “Eagles” that I didn’t get to but I will later on today. Here’s what we’re doing in case you missed it. I have the names of seven players in the hat – they are, Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els, Vijay Singh, Sergio Garcia, Geoff Ogilvy and Adam Scott. When you call (or e-mail), I pick one of those names at random. He then becomes “your golfer” for the Masters. If he makes an “eagle” during the tournament, you donate $25 (per-eagle) to our fund in memory of Erinn McCarthy. With the monies raised through Eagles for Erinn, we’re
going to purchase an Eagle sculpture that we will engrave “from WNST Radio listeners” and present to Maryvale Preparatory School, where Erinn attended. We hope they’ll place it out on the athletic field at Maryvale where the girls can see it all the time.
If you want to get in on this part of our fund-raiser to honor the memory of Erinn, either call the show tomorrow or Wednesday (410-481-1570) or e-mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll e-mail you a golfer.* Speaking of golf, if you plan on playing in our 9-hole spring golf league at Mount Pleasant (Thursdays, 4:00 pm, April 12 through May 17 – six weeks total), you need to register your 2-man team right now. E-mail me at:
email@example.com for more info or to register.* Mickey in Union Square provided some late show fireworks today when he called in and beat me up for being too critical of the Baltimore baseball franchise’s marketing efforts. What can I say? They get what they get. They no longer market to the Baltimore baseball fan and someone has to call them on it. I guess it’s me.
I’ll be back later on today with more thoughts on the baseball season.
Have a great Monday!
