It's time for my annual appeal.

I am responsible for the weekly Monster Matchup article for the TT conference. Unfortunately my business is very seasonal - we do a lot of work for the Christmas gift market - and it's full on (I'm working all day and well into the evening through the week) until into November.

So as per the last 2 years, I need some help to cover weeks 1-8 before I have time to take over in week 9 for the rest of the season.

If you can cover a week or two in weeks 1-8, please post here. You can do anything you like with the article as long as you are covering one matchup in the TT conference for the week you are covering.

Last year, Brad, Carla and Joe were good enough to step up and did amazing work - thank you all again.

Can we get some teamwork going and get a group to cover weeks 1-8 this year?

vote yes

On a side note I'm looking forward to doing the DD version again this year. I'm sure RW will step up to help you Jon.

Kudos to Ed for stepping up to the plate.  I wonder what game he'll pick to do for week 1?

Thanks Joe - and Bill too - for the offer of help for Ed. I love it when the RW community steps up, and they always do.

Will get the article out later today.  Brother-in-law has been in the hospital for the last week with complications from open heart surgery.  Been a little stressful.

Wishing him well man...the articles are for fun but life comes first. If it works out that's cool but don't worry about it.

Hope things work out with your brother-in-law Ed. If there's something I can do to help with the article, let me know.

Thanks, Bill - I was able to get it done (and highlight your team).  However, if any of you think I am hogging this assignment of helping out Jon and want to chip in for Weeks 7 and/or 8, just give a shout.

Well after two weeks it was determined that he had a reaction to the heparin that was given to him during surgery.  He developed life-threatening blood clots and had to be put on an IV blood thinner for the duration of his hospital stay.  Then we find out that there are other patients in the hospital suffering from the same reaction and they think it is due to the fact that they began purchasing their heparin from China.  So I did some research and discover this -



So they know that China fucks with the heparin they manufacture yet still acquire it and administer it to their patients. WTF!!!

Oh my! Everyone is out to save a buck in all the wrong places it seems. That's ridiculous.

How is your brother-in-law doing now?

That sucks. This belongs in the Fucking Stupid People post. I am glad they figured out what it was, but that seems grossly negligent and damn near criminal on the part of someone/some group of someones. I hope everything works out for him.

Also, I realize that I never responded to your above post. If you are still dealing with family issues or need me to do the article this week, let me know and I should be able to put something together today.

Holy Shit!  That is pretty damn scary.  And to think 10 years later they are still importing that stuff.   Damn, I hope your brother in law is getting better.  This sucks when you find out it's because of something that should never have been.   sad3

He went home yesterday and is doing much better.  Because of the fuckup, he has to be on new medications for 6 months and be checked regularly.  We dodged a bullet.

Well that's great news. Just because the bullet was dodged doesn't mean heads shouldn't roll for this...hope they do.
