Baseball's back and now at the plate -- it's your local shelter.

For every home run hit during Opening Day games this April, we’ll make a $1,000 Merrick food donation to a local animal shelter. That’s one shelter for every homer!

Here’s how it works:
-Nominate your favorite shelter or pet rescue. Tell us their name & why they deserve a donation.
-Cheer on your home team to hit it out of the park at their home opener. Opening Day game dates are April 5, 6, 9, 10, and 13. Let’s rack up some runs for shelter pets!
-Invite your friends to vote for your shelter to receive a Merrick donation. Later this month, we’ll tally up the dingers. The shelters with the most votes will get a special food delivery from Merrick.

It’s time to play ball… because every pet deserves a naturally healthy, all-American meal!

Nominate your local shelter here:

^Here's his address, but I still can't listen in because there's NO SOUND. :-(

Strange... I can hear all the rest of the clips that the team posted perfectly...

He looks nice, though.

UPDATE: Discovered a workaround! I plugged the hallway speakers into the computer and it played nicely! (both in the hallway and in the room where the computer is; so I had whole-house Keith!) =D>

Heart puppy!

The somewhat mis-named Zip has a heart condition and needs to take it slow.
But he certainly does have the the appropriate marking on his side --

Good news re Marx!
UPDATE 4: The surgery was a success! He's a little disgruntled about whatever the hell happened to his hip and WTF this thing is on his head...... but otherwise he's doing just fine! ;)

KO auctions ESPN2 inaugural leather jacket for the love of dogs

Postby Marie » Tue Apr 05, 2016 4:08 pm

Even though it still fits!

Image

LOT DESCRIPTION:

Though it is far from the most expensive, this lot is in many ways one of the most important in the entire REA auction. It is not only a fascinating modern relic of pop culture with ideal provenance, but is being offered to raise money and awareness for a worthy cause.

ESPN2, which is the offspring of parent network ESPN, was initially developed to appeal to a younger demographic. To target that audience, the network embraced a more informal broadcast style and featured alternative programing, including extreme sporting events and poker. The new channel debuted on October 1, 1993, at 7:30 pm Eastern time, with the premier episode of SportsNight, hosted by Keith Olbermann, Suzy Kolber, and Mitch Albom. SportsNight was the network's equivalent of ESPN's Sportscenter, but with an edgier and more irreverent tone.

Offered here is the famous (or perhaps infamous) brown-leather bomber jacket worn by Keith Olbermann during the debut episode of SportsNight (as well as worn during many additional episodes). While executives thought the SportsNight anchors should be dressed not in suit-and-tie but in more "hip" fashions, that was not why Olbermann wore the jacket.

"Due to an undetected automatic air conditioning/automatic light grid snafu, the studio was so cold that I had been wearing it in rehearsals. The afternoon of the premiere the executive producer saw me in the leather jacket and said 'You should wear that on the air.' I immediately told him that was the greatest idea I had ever heard."

The jacket was also worn during the debut of the 2013 show that marked Olbermann's return to ESPN and ESPN2.

Of special note, the jacket's provenance is impeccable: it has been consigned directly by Keith Olbermann! At the direction of Keith Olbermann, who is hoping this personal keepsake will find a good home and at the same time provide for a good cause, the entire auction proceeds including buyer's premium for this lot is being donated to From The Heart, a last-chance dog shelter in El Paso, which takes in all the dogs (and cats) that are to be euthanized by the other shelters (website: http://www.fthar.org). Robert Edward Auctions [REA] is honored to help spread the word about this great organization.

The winning bidder for this lot will be asked to make the tax-deductible check out directly to "From The Heart." The jacket (size "Large"), manufactured by Avirex Limited, displays light wear. In Excellent condition overall.

Opening bid is $200.00.
End: 4/30/2016 9:00 PM EST

Wish I could get in on this one!
