    Hey Mark! I’m so happy for you-everyone good job-it is really going to a good cause. BTW-when is the auction supposed to begin?

  2. Greg Says:

    Mark-you mean you’re not in favor of wild specualtion that this blog tends to provide?

  3. Blake Says:

    Actually, Greg, I said that.

  4. Greg Says:

    Okay Blake, you mean you’re not in favor of the wild speculation that this blog tends to provide?

  5. Blake Says:

    Facts yes, opinions are OK, but speculation no. Some of you have been watching the X-Files way too much. 99 times out of 100, life is not that complicated. I guess that makes me the cigarette smoking man. Cough, cough.

  6. Greg Says:

    Let’s see, that makes you a lack of sleep, balding, chain smoker. Boy Blake, if it weren’t for bad luck you’d have no luck at all. lol

  7. Blake Says:

    Thank goodness for alcohol.

  8. TONY E Says:

    I am waiting on some additional information from Mark then we will have the auctions up and running. I will post item numbers as soon as they go up

  9. Mark Says:

    Um, Tony…did you not recieve my email this morning..that probably why you haven’t responded yet.

  10. TONY E Says:

    No 😦 I never got it. Please resend

  11. TONY E Says:

    Nevermind looks like you already did. Ok. I will get these up tonight.

  12. Burgee Says:

    my bids are in! bring it on the rest of you!

    thanks to the K’s for donating these, the shirt with all those autographs is great!

  13. TONY E Says:

    So everyone understands, the check in the amount of the winning bid you will send to me made out to the MDA. I will forward those checks to Mark. The second check for shipping will be made out to me to cover some of the shipping costs. Get the bids in folks!

  14. Mark Says:

    awesome..i got those pages bookmarked to keep up on those…thanks Tony E.

  15. TONY E Says:

    No thanks needed. It is my pleasure

  16. JungleMonkey Says:

    Your a good man, Tony. My bids are in, for now. Good Luck everyone.

  17. Mark Says:

    Thanks JM…

  18. TONY E Says:

    Well folks, Ebay decided to remove the three listings 😦 They expect me to sign up for something called missionfish in order to sell charitable items. I am not going to do this because they ask for personal information that I do not give out on the internet. (SS number etc)
    So I can do several things here. I can relist the items with no mention of the MDA and simply send the funds to Mark so he can disperse them to the MDA. I can also do an Email bid auction. Thanks to all those who bid before.
    I think the email bid idea might be best.
    Ideas? Suggestions?

  19. Mark Says:

    That sucks…it really does..

  20. Jungle Monkey Says:

    What a bunch of crap! I was winning a couple of those auctions. Let me know what you decide.

  21. Greg Says:

    I would think that if you don’t want to get your e-mail overloaded or have to keep track of it to just relist the ebay items and make no mention of MDA, that way ebay still does most of the work.

  22. Blake Says:

    Why not just do it right here? You can do it all through e-mails.

  23. TONY E Says:

    Thats what I am thinking. OK folks. Email address BALLZANDSTRIKES@AOL.COM Start submitting bids. I will update bid amounts here at least once a day. Bidding ends 9 PM Sunday.
    Item # 1 Kevin St Pierre autographed official game puck Starting bid $10 Shipping $5
    Item # 2 2005-06 team signed Orange Collar Tee shirt. Starting bid $10 Shipping $5
    Item # 3 4 tickets to any game next season plus a brand new Orange Komets hat. Starting bid $10 Shipping $5
    Email me if you need a picture of what you are bidding on.
    Check for bid total will be made out to MDA. Since I am not going to be paying any Ebay fees I will add a donation of 10% of the total bid amounts for the 3 items. Winning bidders names will be kept private until the end of the auction when with their permission I will post them here.
    I have done email bid auction with Sportscards before and they work well. Lets get this going!!
