FanPost

For Tarheel Paul...

Hey BTB community,

I think most of us read the FanPost put up by Tarheel Paul recently. It was heart-breaking. Go here if you haven't read it.

Some of you guys wrote me wondering if there was something we could do for him and I was thinking the same thing. Then it hit me. BTB asked you guys to contribute to a fundraiser for training camp over the past months. BTW, thanks to everybody who contributed, we brought in close to $1,600 and Raf and I will use that for TC and other blog improvements. But we also offered a pair of tickets to the pre-season opener at the stadium with the Titans as a raffle prize to contributors.

My idea: Let's give that pair of tickets to Tarheel Paul so he and his wife can go to the game. I know we promised a raffle, but I'm hoping as a community we can come together to support one of our own in his time of need. I talked to Paul about it, he was excited and thought it was a nice gesture. But I need all of you guys who contributed to the fundraiser to agree. We promised you something and I don't want to go back on it without your consent.

So, if you contributed and have objections or questions, email me. It will remain strictly confidential, so please don't feel you'll be singled out in the community. You are within your rights to question it if so inclined. It might be a case where I can refund your contribution from my own pocket if it's only a person or two.

Otherwise, if I don't hear any objections in the next few days, I'll let Tarheel Paul know. I would be elated to do something nice for him and his wife. I discussed this idea with Raf and he is in agreement too, if everyboidy else is in agreement.

Thanks,

Dave
