Al's Run .. gentlemen, I want my two dollars. No, make that 5.

It's that time again.

Al's Run is right around the corner, two weeks from Saturday.

Last year was a huge success, as Marquette Basketball fans raised $1,645 for the cause. We've been raising money for three years running, setting a new record each year.

This year? We're gunning for $2,000. Our traffic has nearly doubled since last year (a coaching change will do that for you) and we're going to capitalize on that.

Hell, we added Henry Sugar to the team, and he's gotta be worth an extra $500 by himself.

We don't sell you stuff here, we don't even show you advertisements, we just give you pure Marquette Basketball goodness.

All we ask for is a few bucks every year, for Al's Run.

So do us a solid, and pony up a few bucks, put a little something something in the tip jar. It all goes to a great cause, Children's Hospital of Wisconsin. Sure, some will pledge $25, $50 .. but imagine if all our loyal readers gave FIVE measily bucks? Bingo, that's $10k.

So, click here, whip our your credit card and pay your respects to Al, and Marquette: http://www.firstgiving.com/MarquetteFans\

UDPATE: WOW. One hour, and we're 10% of the way to our goal. Keep it going!
