As part of my ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, I'm challenging all Twins Daily, all Vikings Journal writers and my podcast partner, Aaron Gleeman, to do their own ice bucket challenge. Just videotape it, tweet it and copy me in the tweet. For each one, Chrissie and I will donate $50 in memorial of Bev Benson, my friend Bob's mom, who was afflicted with this terrible disease. For more (and to see me get very cold) check out the video.

This is open to anyone who writes on any of the blogs on these sites. For those of you that have already done the challenge, tweet out the evidence and I'll be happy to include you in the donation pool.

Thanks,
John

I challenged you... you can't challenge me back!

 

The breaks all the ice bucket challenge rules -- both written and unwritten.

Twins Daily and Vikings Journal break all kinds of rules. But if you just repost your video and tweet it, that'll work.

I suppose "resigning" from an unpaid writing gig just to avoid some icewater would be an over-reaction, wouldn't it?
