Jan. 3: 1,400 on an interesting day

03 Jan

Today included a 1,400-shot afternoon with Noah and Korey, and it included a gym visit from WMUR (News 9) television for a report due to run on tonight’s 11 o’clock news.

I was also happy to see that our effort got some excellent press from sportswriter Kevin Gray in the New Hampshire Sunday News (along with the accompanying video), but I’ll admit to being a little … um … shell-shocked, blindsided, disheartened, bummed out by some of the reader comments posted at the end of the story on the Union Leader website.  I mean, yikes.

Thanks to those of you who offered your support, either with comments on the site or direct contact today.

That’s 76,437 down, 923,563 to go to 1 million.

      Hey Kelley … Great to hear from you. Maybe the family can come on down for an evening of rebounding (and dinner?) sometime. Hello to Tim, Ben and Katie.

    I think that’s a great idea. Ben is away at school but I’m sure Tim and Katey would be interested. Katey plays on the Newport Varsity basketball team and could use the rebounding practice! ha ha ha. I’ll have Tim get in touch with you.
    Keep up the good work. Kelley
