Contest Reminder

Discussion continues in the BSMW Group Project – Worst Boston Sports Columns post.

Be sure to check out the now-extensive comments section of that post for the many suggestions that have floated in over the last few days.

You’ll have a chance to win prizes from the TV show AX MEN (Mondays, 10pm HISTORY) by submitting your choice for the worst Boston sports column of recent memory.

It’s a crazy day here at BSMW headquarters, so the linkage is a little light. Be sure to look in the Twitter widget to the right for miscellaneous links throughout the day.

Heading Out

It’s once again vacation time here at BSMW headquarters. I’ll be heading out for the next couple of weeks, but I’ll be leaving you in the very capable hands of the guest bloggers. Ken, Bob, Brian and TJ will take good care of you over the next two week until I get back.

See you then.

BSMW Memorial Day Weekend Mystery Sale

Edit: For the latest links on Celtics/Pistons check the post below this one.  For an update on the Mystery Sale, we’ve sold exactly 25 35 of the 50 available slots. We’ll keep this running today and through the weekend…thank you again for your support!

It’s a really busy time here in the BSMW household. We’re getting ready to move sometime in the next couple of weeks, and also preparing for the birth of our first child in just over a month. Things are pretty overwhelming in a number of ways right now.

I’ve found that in the last five years or so, I’ve accumulated a ton of books, videos and even shirts related to sports and specifically Boston sports that various entities have sent me to review or look at. The wife tells me there will be no room for a lot of this stuff at the new residence.

So I’ve come up with the following.. I’m a big fan of the site, which occasionally runs a promotion called the “Random Bag of Crap” where you have no idea what you’re buying, and could end up with anything. I’m going to take this idea and use it here, as sort of a combination fund drive/clearinghouse.

The first 50 people to donate $50 or more to the site will receive a box of something. It might be worth more than $50, it might be worth much less. It might be one thing, it might be two things or more. It might be a book, it might be a video or a shirt. It might not even be sports related at all. I can tell you though, there are some real treasures to be found in here!

Items are all new or “like-new.” Books may have been read one time. Shirts never worn.

Use the Paypal donate button below, donate $50 or more and be sure to include your mailing address when donating, so I can ship your mystery box out next week.

Once hit 50 donors or run out of stuff, the drive will be over.

If you’ve enjoyed BSMW and have wanted to contribute or show your appreciation, this is a fun way in which you’ll also receive something in return.

Thank you in advance for your support and for all that you’ve done for me in the last six plus years here.

Update In Progress

As you can see, the update is well underway. We’re now on the new server. While the basic design is here, and the old posts have been imported, there are still many elements that need to be configured and fixed.

What you see this weekend is not the finished product.  I encourage you to keep checking back to see the progress being made.
