And The Best All-Star Voter EVAR is... VANCE!

Postby ctcf » Fri Jul 08, 2005 2:15 am

Well, since my plea to buy vance a shirt actually worked, Serena has asked me to announce once again that Vance is indeed, the man and probably set the world record for All-Star game voting in any sport ever. Thanks to a bunch of nice people we managed to pull together as a community to get vance an awesome (I like orange so ha to the rest of you!) Lee all-star T-Shirt.

Bravo Vance!

Just an update:

The shirt has been ordered. But -- no doubt due partially to Vance's tremendous efforts in raising the general awareness of DLEE's incredibleness -- they couldn't churn out enough tshirts to meet the overwhelming demand, so it's on back order.

(I think they need to manufacture more orange dye :wink: )

It's supposed to ship in 2-4 weeks. Post here when you get it, Vance! :)

A special thanks to the NSBB members who helped make this happen:

I've decided to wear white shorts (and a colored thong just for Roast) with it and try to get work as a traffic cone.

Thanks everyone!

I appreciate it.

This was really so unexpected....but I can't begin to thank-you all.

And Gracie, you only chipped it b/c you were glad I was able to overcome your helping your son vote for Pujols. (Yes, I still lurk at BOTB every now and then...lol.)

WHY OH WHY did they have to choose orange as the AS jersey color THIS year??? I *hate* orange. :x

Props to Vance. Stuffing ballot boxes is an established Chicago tradition. :D

And in Louisiana too. Considering I'm related to former governor Huey p. Long, I know all about political machinery.

Nah....I chipped in because I voted about 500 times and I know how much time that took, and I think you voted at least twice that. You rocked, Vance. :)

BTW, after Paul voted for Pujols once, I went back and voted another 25 times for DLee to invalidate Paul's vote. I'm a good mom but not a saint by any means LOL.

It's ok...we may have more players to work on next year too.

Hopefully we can get Ramirez voted the starter for next year too.

Usually around the end of April or 1st of May. I need people to pledge 100 votes a day for the duration and this one will be easy this year.
