The Memorial Fund is fine and good, and I've already contributed (again, just going to the THT homepage will get you there), but if we really want to honor Brattain by making life better for his teenage daughters, we need to find a way to prevent meatwad from crossing the Canadian border.
I said I think everything I have to say in the post that Dial so graciously put up for me (and on the main page, no less.) I just realized today that I'm running way short on cash this month and I feel terrible waiting until the 1st, is anyone close enough to John's family or someone who would know to know if they're in need of anything else for the short term?
Though, I learned after my dad's funeral that people often all think the same thing, when it turns out that what would help the most is something completely different that no one would think of. So, if anyone finds out something like that, please let the rest of us know.
I recognize it's quick to go down this road, but if it is a means to providing needed relief over a longer period to his family, and if it's viable economically, perhaps one of the THT team can scope out the idea....
When does the donation window close? If it's past the end of the month, I'd like to put another quarter in the machine.
BRATTAIN PASSES AWAY: John Brattain, one of the best-known Canadian voices covering baseball on the Internet, died Tuesday of complications due to heart surgery.
Brattain, 43, worked for highly regarded sites like The Hardball Times and Baseball Daily Digest. He was a pioneer of the irreverent, impassioned style that has come to define Web coverage of sport inside and outside the mainstream media.
