Just a boring old Charlie Blackmon 12/24 auto

I haven't picked up many new Christmas Eve Cards this year, but here's a decent one.


While I haven't pulled the trigger on starting a Charlie Blackmon PC, like him enough to where I wouldn't rule it out in the future. He's led the NL in runs scored the past couple years and has a lifetime batting average over .300. Respect!

Also, today is my birthday, the big four-one. Here are the 41 most recent folks who've commented on my blog:

Good news, guys and gal!.. You're eligible for my 12 Days of Christmas c0ntest/draft thing that starts tomorrow. There will be 12 winners, so not everybody will take home a prize, but you'll have to keep a watchful eye on the blog for the next few days if you want to win a prize. (It'll mostly be a first-come, first-pick dealy.)

If you're reading this on Christmas Eve and are disappointed to not see your name on the list of eligible folks, well, it's a Christmas miracle! Comment on this post by the end of the day (12/24/18 11:59 pm Pacific) and I'll squeeze you onto the list. (UPDATE: now closed!)

As for prizes, resurrected from the early days of my blog is the Prize Pool! Trying to get a nice variety of available prize options.

Thanks for reading and have a Merry Christmas, if you're into that sorta thing!

  4. Very cool Blackmon auto. Merry Birthday and a Happy Christmas to you! And if anyone tries to make jokes about you getting old, tell 'em you're the same age as Tom Brady. :P

  5. I just turned 37. I've always thought of my parents as being 40, and soon I will be 40. Life is a weird trip.

    That's a nice card. I'm not used to seeing Blackmon's beard that short.
