Extra Life. This time it's personal. (Just like it was in Jaws 3.)

If there's anything in this world to make me question life's purpose it's sick kids. Nothing is more tragic and unfair than a child riddled with an illness. Fortunately, there are many good people who work diligently to combat the illnesses that plague innocent children. But they still need help. Namely in the form of money.

My sister had cancer as a young child. My good friend Ross (AKA Rooster) had cancer as a young child. And a close friend/coworker of Lynette's is currently dealing with an illness to their 3-year-old child. I can't think of a better way to say fuck you to the universe than supporting this noble cause. As a parent of a 2-year-old I cannot fathom the anguish and agony of having to stand by and watch your child suffer.

I participated in this charitable cause last year and it was a blast. The concept is simple: Play video games and raise money. Last year our team raised nearly a thousand dollars! Never underestimate the power of large groups of organized nerds.

My donation page is here. Put some cash in it, please. Please!

I've been sick this week. But thank God hockey's back!

Go Capitals.

And Go Bears.
