About two weeks ago, our friends at Veterans United got in touch with us and asked if we could help them get the word out about a very cool promotion. The Mizzou versus Florida game has been selected as the "Military Appreciation Game" by the Mizzou Athletic department. And the people at Veterans United are giving a whopping 2,000 football tickets away to active military personnel and military veterans.
We told them that we would be happy to mention it on our podcast and promote it on our social media accounts. I mean, who wouldn't? You'd have to be some kind of monster not to help with that, right? So, we did. We talked about it on the show, and posted something about it on Twitter. Soon after, one of our listeners, Airman 1st Class Andrew Snively tweeted back to us that he'd love to go, but couldn't swing the airfare from Hill Air Force Base in Utah.
And guess what?! You guys came through BIG TIME! The last time we checked, the tally was up to $590, which means that we could get the money to Airman Snively and after the GoFundMe fees, still had some left over to donate to the Gary Sinise Foundation!
We spend most of our time yelling and cussing at each other about coaches, and losses, and Pressbox Superfriends, but today my friends, we did a little something nice. We'll keep you posted on where we'll be in case you want to come by and have a beer with the Mizzodcast guys and Airman Snively!
