Well, that didn’t take long. Less than half a day passed before a volunteer stepped forward who passed muster. (Behold the power of the Intertubes!)
I don’t want to lay out too much detail, because I want to give him the chance to introduce himself to you in his own words, but suffice to say he fits the bill nicely. He’s a long-time resident of Montana who bleeds red and black (he shlepped to the unfortunate Colorado game and sent me the photo of him and Hairy Dawg there to prove it) and reads GTP. I had to pinch myself when I read his e-mail; he’s almost overqualified. So anyway, be on the lookout for an introduction.
One other thing to mention is that Travis is going to front for the cost of one of the necessary props for this exercise, a real, live Georgia football helmet. He’s found a good one on Amazon for about $200. I can’t set up a widget for PayPal on WordPress, so Travis will do that at his blog. I will supply a link to that from here, and I hope that you will give a few bucks to the cause. When the dust settles, I plan to set up a permanent Montana Project page here at GTP and list all of those who participated financially, so there’s that small shot at quasi-immortality you can grab for yourself.
Bottom line – we’re on our way. Stay tuned for more news on this.
