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.
"I know what I'm wearing to the @MizzouSoftball game tonight #tremendousstubble" -Former Mizzou Tiger Lisa Simmons, via Twitter. If you'll excuse me, I'll be over there, um, FREAKING OUT.
Bill's dropping the check off on Monday. You guys are my freakin' heroes.
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)
