Yes, the money we donate will go to Children's Hospital in the name of LetsGoWings.com.
Everyone will PayPal me their donation when it is not possible to donate any more money under the terms of your pledge. I will donate one lump sum to Children's Hospital.
One-time payment once we have a total. I chose to pledge per series - you can pledge per game, per win, whatever floats your boat, but the Wings have to take the series for Children's Hospital to get the money.
Luck? Yes. A few calls? Sure. Problem is the whole hockey world has seen entire games called solely for the benefit of Chicago; you can't claim this is sour grapes - fan bases who don't give a rats ass about Chicago are talking about it. Personally I would be embarrassed if the only way the Wings made it to the playoffs the last 20 years was with a healthy leg-up from the officials.
Enjoy it while you can.
We had so much fun with this during the Columbus games, I thought we'd do a playoff version. This time we're going to do it a little differently; you pledge whatever amount you like (per game, per series, whatever) - if the Wings win, you pony up. If the Wings lose, so does Children's Hospital. We will do this for every playoff series this post-season the Wings are involved in.
I decided to pledge $20 for the series win, plus another $1 for every multi-goal game Franzen has. This will be my standard pledge for each series.
Anyone else in?
Okay, we've established the Wings aren't going to get any calls - it's up to them to play around the refs. It helps that we're out-hitting them and doing it legally. Wings just need to play their game. *deep breath*
