For Erich--Kurt and Brenda Warner Helping Soldiers Overseas

I just got off the phone with my good friend and skiing buddy Erich. Erich of the famous Wolf Creek trip that spawned two almost fistfights over Jerry Falwell and Walmart. Erich who refuses to watch or even read about professional American sports like football or baseball because that is what Bud Light drinking Red Staters enjoy, so he likes soccer. Been too long since we spoke. He had his Tyler Durden (Fight Club) moment a couple weeks ago, which I believe makes me Bob. Steroid induced man boobs and all.

So just to get his blood pumping, you have a hugely Evangelical Christian football player trying to help the military overseas by setting up equipment donations at Walmart.

Kurt Warner and his wife, Brenda, a former Marine, are teaming up with Packages from Home to gather new or gently used sports equipment to ship to soldiers serving overseas.

Donations can be made at Valley Wal-Mart stores now through Oct. 14. Donations can also be made at the Cardinals next home game, Oct. 14 against the Panthers.

Desired equipment includes Frisbees, baseball gloves, tennis rackets, golf clubs, in addition to balls from various sports (footballs, soccer balls, basketballs, volleyballs, etc.).

Monetary donations are also being accepted. They can be made through the Warners' First Things First Foundation (, or by checks payable to First Things First - Ball Drive at 3420 E. Shea Blvd, Ste. 200, Phoenix, 85028.


Erich's head is having a Blue State Blue Screen right now. Buffer overflow at 0X00CF10.

Well I may not run down with my favorite Weider dumbells, but I think its a fine idea. I'm sure Kurt and I could hang out and...

...well, no. I think instead I'll go start a foundation to send brownies to kids in Rwanda, because that will help address the underlying issues that are destroying their lives.
