Stubble Drive: Pay Up

38

We pledged money to the MU Children's Hospital, and now it's time to pay up. (And even if you didn't pledge, it's not like you can't donate anyway.)

4th Annual RMN Tremendous Stubble Charity Drive

We've raised $15,000+ for the MU Children's Hospital and become Best Bros with Mizzou's softball coach, all because of a stupid Internet comment. And now we want to do more.

The MU softball season is over; now, the part where we help out sick kids.

OK, so, a couple caveats to this: -This is an estimation, and I am a journalist, so math's not my thing. But this should be pretty close to accurate. -This does not include minimum pledges, which means this is a very conservative estimate. -We have 56 pledgers, and that only counts the people who announced their pledge in the comments of the original story. That's pretty awesome. -We have 50 different types of prop bets, so in a way I love you guys, and in a way I hate you guys. -It is not too late to pledge. So, that's pretty darn awesome. Go #TremendousStubble.

This is an official total from MU Health. This isn't, like, some number I made up. This actually happened. More than a 21% increase over last year's donation. In two years, Rock M Nation has donated $9,448.42 to the MU Children's Hospital. Let that soak into your mind-grapes for a moment. You guys are my freakin' heroes. And yes, we're in touch with the MU Children's Hospital about naming something. I love you.

Kansas names former NFL assistant Dave Campo as defensive coordinator

Kansas names former NFL assistant Dave Campo as defensive coordinator

I'll be honest, you guys: the past few weeks of my life haven't been grand. If you didn't read, I had a bit of an incident last week, and have spent about eight more hours in a dentist's chair than I'd prefer. And as a guy who really, really hates dentists, that's an eternity. And this is some pricey stuff; insurance is covering some of it, but it's still a hefty sum of money that's being injected directly into my mouth. And it's not like I'm swimming in money right now. Between paying for a honeymoon (expensive, yo), paying for plane tickets to go to other people's weddings (inviting me to their special day, the jerks), and feeding my ongoing addiction to Fabergé eggs, the ol' bank account is awfully low in funds, which has me -- pardon the pun -- down in the mouth. So I would really like to take a moment to thank the Kansas football program for providing a consistent source of cheer and humor during these trying times for me. It's like they knew I needed to be cheered up, so they hired the funniest possible candidate for their defensive coordinator (and, for that matter, head coach) vacancies. Thank you, Kansas football program. You are a beacon of hilarious light in an otherwise bleary landscape. (Tweet from CBS' Brett McMurphy.)

Sports have kind of sucked lately. As a result, let's forget about it and instead dive into what has to be the greatest idea of all time, derived by the great Jon Bois.

Taking another look at my thoughts on Mizzou-to-the-SEC

3

If you haven't noticed, I've been distinctly in the minority here on RMN, being against Missouri's move to the SEC (and I think I've gained a few enemies as a result). I spent a lot of time thinking about it today, about why I'm against it when so many people whose opinions I value are for it. And, well, I wrote a blog post.

Today is the 23rd birthday of the official softball player of Rock M Nation, Marla SCHWEISBERGER, and wow, is she in a hurry to open her presents! (And yes, I know she graduated, but she will forever be our first Official Softball Player of RMN. Because SCHWEISBERGER rules. Deal with it.)

Just spoke w Eagles WR Jeremy Maclin, who said he's been cleared to play finally after months of tests for Lymphoma, type of cancer Maclin told me final test came back today after he got a scare on his bday May 11th. Had lymph nodes removed last week Told me he's totally fine and was a virus that has left his body and expects to return once he recovers from last week's procedure.

#Mizzou LT Elvis Fisher leaves practice with what Gary Pinkel called "a significant knee injury." {4pm edit - Report is that Fisher has ruptured his patellar tendon in his left knee and will miss the season}

Our amigo Gabe. Not a big deal. Everything's fine. Nothing to worry about. If you'll excuse me, I'm due for a crying jag in the corner. No, don't worry, it's a regularly scheduled crying jag; this has nothing to do with the potential serious knee injury to Mizzou's most important lineman. It's just like a check-up, you know?

Bill's dropping the check off on Monday. You guys are my freakin' heroes.

UPDATE (Friday, 1:50pm Central): Been in touch with the wonderful MU Health people, and we're beginning the donation process (getting the money from PayPal to them, basically). I'll keep you guys...

A few things of note: -Again, this is all based on everyone coming through on their pledges. Because if you don't come through on your pledge, it's court-admissible proof that you hate children. -This is only reflective of pledges made in the comments of the original post, not on Twitter or in the cockles of your souls. -This doesn't reflect "minimum" donations. For example, if you pledged "$5 per win, with a minimum donation of $50," we're only counting the $5 per win. -The prop bet scoreboard reads thusly: 6 wins 9 home runs An appearance in the Final Eight 2 shutouts 2 run-rule victories 48 strikeouts by Chelsea Thomas or Kristin Nottelman 6 Mizzou walks in the fifth inning (damn it, Boom) 41 strikeouts by Chelsea Thomas 15 extra-base hits Amazing. Simply amazing. And if you haven't pledged, there's still time! (Oh, and you can embiggen the photo by clicking here)

$2,510.63

$2,510.63

The projected total donation to the MU Children's Hospital, so far. A few important notes on this number: -Obviously, this is all based on you guys living up to your promises. I'M LOOKING AT YOU, EVERYONE. -This is only reflective of pledges pledged in the comments, and not on Twitter or in your own hearts. -This does not include minimum donations (for example, if you pledged $5 a game with a $50 minimum...I'm only counting the $5 a game for now). -It includes the following occurrences of prop bets: 4 wins 7 home runs 1 shutout 2 run-rule wins 26 Chelsea Thomas or Kristin Nottelman strikeouts 2 Mizzou walks in the 5th inning of games (damn it, Boom) 19 Chelsea Thomas strikeouts 13 extra base hits So...yeah, you guys are freakin' awesome. And there's still time to pledge if you haven't!
