Wild World of Wednesday - PSA Edition



In the interest of social responsibility I am going to take a cue from blogger Kellex at The Sports Dollar. I saw his post a few days ago saying that the above video was being used in the blogosphere to play tag in order to go viral. The idea is this – post this and link to five other blogs which comes from the video asking you to send it to five friends. So you can just send it to five friends or copy Kellex's idea as I have and link to 5 (or more) blogs. Hopefully, those 5 will link to 5 more and so on…

Whatever your affiliation and whatever you believe, there is no reason to complain if you don’t make your voice heard. I was in college in Florida during the famous “hanging chad” fiasco of 2000. Before the election, I was involved with a bi-partisan group of students that executed a major effort on campus to get other students registered to vote and then to exercise that right to vote. I remember walking into the campus coffee shop on Election Day wearing my “I Voted” sticker. The guys behind the counter and I had engaged in several conversations about how we were going to vote the days prior. Guess what? When I asked them where their indicative stickers were I got excuses instead. “I couldn’t find where I was supposed to go.” In the days that followed, they felt quite idiotic knowing that they didn’t make their voices heard. Don’t let this happen to you.

Again, if you’ve been here before you know that I am pretty darn neutral and diplomatic and allow everyone to express themselves freely. I won’t tell you how to vote, I just want to remind you to please vote. Please? Thank you.

Tag – these blogs are “it”:

That Mutt

TheHappyNappyBookseller

Women’s Sports Blog

…Because I Played Sports

Sarah and the Goon Squad

And for good measure I thought I would go ahead and overdo it and tag Girls Dig Sports, Pretty Tough, Chicks in the Huddle, And One, and Women’s Football Talk.

You’re it!
