OK, let's talk...
Yesterday I posted the reasons why this year, for the first time in a while, I couldn't go to the Vegas Summer League to provide coverage. Basically it boiled down to the ad market bottoming out for individual online sites and my family (thanks to Baby Point Guard) having cut down to one income. Some folks asked about taking a collection but the idea of coming up with enough to cover the trip seemed far-fetched and I didn't want to disappoint any good souls who would donate if it didn't work out.
Last night I got an e-mail from a reader who basically wouldn't take "no" for an answer. He so much wouldn't take "no" for an answer that he has sent a donation that almost makes me feel embarrassed. It's not in "covering the whole trip" territory but it's close enough to where I could say if there are a couple more of you who would like to help sponsor the trip, plus what I can add in, this is possible. The donor wants to remain anonymous, but let me say here that I have not really seen anything like this, especially online, and I am humbled.
For any who might be wondering about the legitimacy of the offer, it's legit. This person has a track record with us. For those of you who want to help (or any who might be interested, even if it's just sponsoring a gallon or two of gas), e-mail me and I'll give you info about how to do that. Compared to the size of the donation already made, we're not terribly far from making this happen.
It appears Blazersedge will be providing coverage from Summer League after all, thanks to its readers. I am speechless. Thank you.
