Make a Cubs fan wear a Cards hat and kiss a Pujols photo

by on May 2, 2011 · 4 comments

Of all of the strange, silly, outlandish, and downright shameless contests we run here at PH8, I’m happy to both promote and participate in one that is worthwhile and fun at the same time.

Win – win.

From Wes Rucker (@wesrucker247), a sports writer from Knoxville TN:

(via Twitter) If 10 St. Louis Cards’ fans send me proof of them sending South tornado aid, I’ll wear a Cards’ hat for 1st time and use it as profile pic.

…and shortly thereafter?

(via Twitter) The bet is set, Cards. You have 24 hours to send me pics of you sending South aid. For 10, I wear a Cards hat. For 20, I kiss a Pujols pic.


Pitchers Hit Eighth has decided to do our part two-fold.

First, a $50 donation to the Saint Louis chapter of the American Red Cross:

You can make your own donation to the STL Red Cross here.

Then, a $50 donation to the United Way of West Alabama, who are pledging 100% of their donations to tornado relief until the end of August:


You can send your own donation to the United Way of West Alabama here.

See, worthwhile and fun.  Let’s make Wes kiss Albert Pujols while he’s wearing a Cardinals hat.

If you like, send your screen caps of your donations to PH8 and we’ll post them all here as a show of support for all those who need our support to overcome the disastrous weather in both St. Louis and the South.

Writing about the Cardinals and other loosely associated topics since 2008, I've grown tired of the April run-out only to disappoint Cardinal fans everywhere by mid-May. I do not believe in surrendering free outs.

I think if we get 30, he should also wear a Keep Albert in St. Louis t-shirt (!!!

So by “we” does that mean you’ve donated as well, or is this just a cheap way to get your link on a post that mentions Albert Pujols?

I just donated, and I’ve got the screenshot to prove that we sometimes use our powers for good…..sometimes.

A little of both. Your blog also gave me an idea of how to raise money for the tornado relief effort thru my website. Good luck getting more to donate!
