Shameless Begging…

I haven’t done any shameless begging for awhile, so here it is. Could you please, please, pretty please with sugar on top go and vote for my cousin, Travis Hafner*, to get into the All-Star game? Just visit and look in the top right corner of the page for the button that says “Monster Online Ballot – 2006 All-Star Game – Click to Vote” Once you click that, a pop-up window will open up. On the American League Team ballot (it was the first one when I voted) Travis is listed under the first baseman as “T. Hafner, CLE”. He plays for the Cleveland Indians.

It would mean so much for him and his family if he made it in to the All-Star game. He comes from the same small town in North Dakota that my Mom grew up in, and his grandparents even got satellite TV just so they could watch his games. They are old and not in the best of health, so it might just be their last chance to see him play in this.

You can vote up to 25 times, and I will be really, really grateful if you do it! Voting ends at 11:59 PM ET on Thursday, June 29, 2006. From Sunday, July 2 to Thursday, July 6, you can return to and cast your vote for the final position player for each League’s 32-man roster.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

* Well, distant cousin, but from a really small town where everyone knows everyone so that doesn’t matter. By small, I mean a town of less than 200 people. Really small.

He’s your cousin? That’s so cool! Unfortunately, I am a Chicago White Sox fan, so uh, I am very sorry to inform you that I would never vote for a Cleveland player. 😛

200 people! That’s is small – I’m from a town of 800, and invariably win the “I’m from a small town” game — some people think that like 10,000 is a small town!

I’ll go vote for your ‘cousin’ while also voting for some Cards. And have fun in London!
