Plenty to do in the MBU

DSCN5825.JPGHere’s the Ranter shirt that I ordered.

 This is how it showed up.

 

 I have had the worst luck with lettering. I loved the T-Shirt but if you step back a few feet the Rockpile Ranter becomes difficult to read.

Rule # 1 with a Ranter shirt: The lettering has to be large enough to be visible on television.

 I wrote the business owner and told him that I wasn’t unhappy, I just wondered why he had spaced the letters so close together.

The gentleman wrote me back and said that he would have needed to use two transfer sheets to do that and the auction clearly stated that only one sheet was used for the lettering. He also informed me about how he was tired of people using their feedback on him as hostage.

I wrote back again and informed him that retaliation wasn’t my intent. I was just asking in case I ever wanted purchase another one of these T-Shirts. I gave the man positive feedback and left it at that.

About a week later I received a package in the mail. I opened it up and look what I found inside:
RPR Tshirt 1.jpgNot only did he make me another shirt just the way I wanted, he made me two of them. NO CHARGE. That was cool. See how well you can read this lettering?

                           Thank you Mr T-Shirt dude? You sir have a loyal customer.

 Anybody want the first shirt? I’ll give it to you, but you have to hand out my Ranter cards when people say “What the hell is a Rockpile Ranter? Believe me…it happens. 

In case your wondering on the status of the letter “P” from a previous entry? I have returned all of the letters for a refund. They couldn’t get it right after three times and Dan convinced me that the quality of the lettering was crap and that I could do better elsewhere.

Great Superbowl yesterday (at least the 4th quarter). I had predicted Cardinals over Steelers 24-21. 

Had they ended the game a few minutes early I’d have been damn close at 23-20, oh well.

thanks a bunch baseballs.gif

 Thank you for your kind comments on the John Breaux entry.

The public outpouring of support for this man has been unbelievable. John literally touched thousands of people. I haven’t had anything “hit me” like this particular tragedy has in a long time.

 Apparently I’m not the only one, not by a longshot. The cities of Louisville and Lafayette are still grieving.

Twenty days till the MBU makes it’s rolling blogging debut. New additions to the MBU will be a meat smoker (for smoking ribs and chicken), and Andy will be bringing his RockBand for the Wii.

Jealous yet? Remember,…. we still have an opening, but much like E Harmony, we have a 100 question compatibility test. gauging you on all different levels.

Most importantly can you sing? If I’m on drums and Andy is on guitar…we’ll need a singer.

Couch potato12.jpgBut hey, sit at home and don’t go…just gives us more room and I get your plate of ribs.  

Relax,…if you’re not up for a “Road Trip” dont fret, You know my coverage of “Rockies Spring Training 2009″ is going to be Bullitzer worthy.

MLB Network eat your heart out on this one. You may have your makeup, cameras and writers, but what you don’t have is a fan’s perspective.

That’s me…Keep’n it real.NOt the MBU 234.jpg

 There is only one “Mobile Blog Unit”.

(<——–This is not the MBU)

 I invented it, I’ll be piloting it, and you my loyal reader will be reaping the rewards of it.

 I can’t wait, less than three weeks.

I’m thinking Rockies Dog, sunblock and margaritas…DThumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image for Thumbnail image
