#Blogathon: Progress After 9 Hours

#Blogathon: Progress After 9 Hours

We have reached 30% to our goal of $1,000 raised for The V Foundation. Give a little and help a lot. Donate now.


So its been 9 hours since the Blogathon began. I’ve got to admit its been a lot of fun for me. I’ve immersed myself into different baseball topics that I’ve thought about a lot lately. What more could I ask for?

But we have only just begun. I have 15 more hours of blogging and then I have quite a few guest posts that will go up and we are only at 30% of our goal.

It doesn’t take much for each of you. $5 here and $5 there will really start to add up. Many of you spend that much on coffee each day.

I’ve got a lot of different ideas yet to write about that I hope you will like. If you read something that interest you, please feel free to share via Twitter, Stumble Upon, Reddit, or wherever  you like so we can get more people to see what we are doing. Hopefully, that will help us reach our goal.

So far:

Cups of coffee: 1

Energy Drinks: 1 (Monster)

Hours of Baseball watched: MLB 3, PBS documentary 4

Slices of pizza eaten: 5

Posts: 19

Feeling: Still feel good, but I know my lack of sleep will catch up to me later

Thoughts: There seem to have been a lot of variations of teams named ‘Giants’ in the old Negro Leagues.

Progress: Just over 30% – remember $5 can go along way.


The V Foundation was founded by ESPN and legendary basketball coach Jim Valvano. It is dedicated to saving lives by searching for a cure for cancer and by creating an awareness of the importance of the war on cancer. You can help the cause by donating now.
