Find Me in the Wind

Tomorrow I am traveling to Lagos, Nigeria where I plan to do some work with Hope Worldwide. For those who are unfamiliar with Hope worldwide, they provide a lot of volunteer opportunities both globally and locally. They provided me the opportunity to help in the rebuilding efforts in New Orleans, and those were some great experiences. I definetely recommend anyone interested in doing some volunteer work to get involved with HOPE. If you're interested in donating money, there are links on their page for that. 91.5% of donated money goes to program expenses and they've been awarded 4 stars by Charity Navigator for sound fiscal management. It's the 6 consecutive time they've received a 4 star rating.

So for the next two weeks, the blog will be in the very capable hands of my brother Roberto Alejandro, and the ever absent Deron Peter whose been keeping a low profile since the Mitchell Report. I will try to check in every now and again, but no promises. My brother will take on the Good, the Bad, and the Ugly segments after games, though the ugly is in reference to his FACE!!! OH snap!!! You just got faced on your own blog!! You walked right into that one. Man, get an ice pack, I know that one hurt.

Anyway, keep up the gangster in my absence.

Jason Lane. Let's see if his bat can have a better comeback than Ensberg.

That is a very honorable thing for you to do. I'm sure it will be a very rewarding experience. I actually have some friends in Niger for the summer..I think those are relatively close?! Good luck with it!

Very safe travel, but watch those spammers: people from Lagos keep telling me that there is $5,000,000waiting for me if only I give them all my personal bank information.

I might send a few of those emails myself while I'm over there.
