Orrin's map project above prompted an e-mail that went out to several of you Northwest types (and you KNOW who you are). If you're from the Northwest and DID NOT get an e-mail from me, please read the rest....

Please excuse this brief, assumptive intrusion. Hopefully you won't dismiss it as Spam.

You're getting this e-mail because you are (apparently) geographically collocated in the greater NW area and have commented or contributed in some way to the BrothersJudd Blog. Tim Goddard (another BrosJudd regular) and I started a conversation a bit too late in the Mariner's 2005 season to pull off what we've now decided should happen in 2006: a BrosJudd NW Contingent meet up @ Safeco Field for a ballgame.

So, I'm writing to:

1) Assure you we won't ever try to sell you Vi*gra, a low-rate mortgage or in any other way use/rent/sell/swap/lease-option your e-mail address.
2) Confirm this is actually your e-mail (we were guessing on some)
3) Find out if you have any interest in our ongoing efforts to settle on a game date. (i.e. if you'd like to "Opt In" to periodic e-mail communication on the details)

Of course, this idea may be a stretch - but we think it's feasible. So, we're looking to find out who might be adventurous enough to join us.

Thanks in advance for your response either way.

Best regards,
John Resnick

P.S. I'm good for a round of horribly-overpriced beers for whoever ultimately makes it to the game.

The following folks were supposed to get the message but we don't have a valid e-mail for you. (And the suspense is killing us.)

Raoul Ortega:
Flanman (Olympia, WA):
Patrick H (Seattle, WA):

So, you three above and any other Northwester who wants in, send me an e-mail: jresnick -- the at sign -- gorge.net.

I'll also point out that every time someone else bought me a ticket this past season, the Mariners won (4-0!). Hopefully we'll be going to a King Felix game, but every little bit helps. Hint hint.

Meanwhile, the large number of Juddites who live in Nebraska, western Iowa, Kansas, South Dakota, and Missouri, please drop me a line and we'll all go to a Husker game!

C'mon, anybody?

Count me in. This could be a fun team next year. Of course, I also posted that earlier this year.
