And finally, it’s that time of year again: The time when I rattle my tip jar, point out that Google ads don’t go that far toward paying the bills around here, and ask for the generosity of my readers to help keep me getting up every morning to tackle what seems to be an ever-growing list of stadium and arena controversies. Plus, FoS Supporters get more for their contribution than my mere undying gratitude:
- Anyone contributing even $25 for the year will get an FoS Supporter pin, plus the full set of FoS stadium trading cards (which will be printed and shipped real soon now, I promise), if you’re not already in the queue to receive them.
- New supporters (or those extending existing memberships) will get an additional all-new tchotchke that I’ve dug up: reprints of the original self-published zine that contained the first feature article (by myself and fellow zine co-editor Joanna Cagan) that eventually turned into the book Field of Schemes and this website:
- As always, anyone who digs deeper will also get the right to place an ad saying anything you want (within the bounds of reason and decency) in the top right corner of this page for six months ($50) or a full year ($100).
To contribute, just click here and follow the instructions at the bottom of the page. And if you want me to mail you your trinkets, be sure to include your mailing address in comments, so I know where to send them.
Thanks as always for your support, whether it comes in the form of cash money or just appreciative emails and comments. I never thought I’d be doing this for this long, but as there’s clearly still a need, I plan on keeping up this daily grind as long as I can afford to do so (and my typing fingers don’t give out).
