Morning News: MLB FanCave Edition

Friday, February 1st, 2013

Happy Friday morning, my good people!

I hope you all have exhilarating weekend plans with lots of computer time on the schedule because…

Yours truly has been selected as one of the top 52 finalist for the MLB FanCave!

Now, some of you may be wondering, “What is a FanCave? (I sure hope you are not wondering what an “MLB” is; if so, we need to talk. STAT.)

The MLB FanCave is an MLB Sponsored contest.The winners of the contest get to live in New York for the entire baseball season and watch every. single. game. (EVERY SINGLE GAME!!) of the 2013 season. They also get to interact with players from each team and celebrities, as well as tweet about and write blog posts about various topics regarding baseball and/or pop culture.

To enter the contest, one must write a 400-word essay and create a 1-2 minute video, both describing various baseball topics. A panel of judges selects approximately 50 entries to move on to the next round. This is where you come in: Once an applicant is selected to be in the Top 50 (in this case, 52), a fan vote determines if they get kicked out or if they move on to the next round.

So, essentially what would be just downright wonderful of all of you would be this: go here and click that little purple button as many times as humanly possible -you can vote as often as you’d like. The voting window is open until February 13th, and when that day comes, the folks in charge of voting will close the polls, get out their bifocals, and begin counting the votes. The 30 applicants with the most votes move on to the next round.

The “Next Round” is an invitation to Spring Training and more baseball-themed competitions. After this round, the Cave Dwellers are chosen and life in the FanCave begins.

Just click here to get to the voting page, vote some, and come back to it later during your work meeting, or the 2-hour lecture on plant respiration, etc. and vote some more!

This is an unbelievably exciting opportunity, and I would appreciate any and all help you could give!
