I was robbed, I tell ya...

Well... didn't win the St. Jude's Dream Home yesterday. Didn't even win the free pizza or some other lame-o prize. Totally struck out...

Seriously, though... What a great cause to give $100 to. I have no second thoughts about this donation, as the hospital in Memphis does such wonderful work. I'm glad to see that they rose $1 million dollars in Nashville through this promotion, enough to run the hospital for one day.

On the other hand, I may just make a donation next time instead of buying a dream home ticket. That way I can avoid watching the awful production that is the "Dream Home Giveaway" show. Now I know why I don't watch Fox morning news. My goodness, this was painful. No one knew who they were tossing to, there were mistakes galore, there was no pacing to the giveaways, etc. Would it have pained them to give away more than one of the prizes in the first hour (the pizza doesn't count... it was a separate raffle) and then have to rush through ten of them in the last five minutes? It would have made better sense to give away the items right after they talked to the person who donated them, no? And was one of the guys actually named Slam Duncan? That can't possibly be is real name, can it (although it looks like he's a pretty stand-up guy with his charity work)? Maybe his parents were really big basketball fans...

I guess that's not important, though. Congratulations to the hospital for a successful fundraiser and to all of the prizewinners. And especially to the winners of the Westhaven home. <-- Link assumes that at some point Fox will put some text to the article about the winners... Like maybe at least their name... Mr. & Mrs. Michael Harrison Sr. of Mt Juliet...
