Your Ad Here

I play on this flag football team and it's really, really fun. We run around outside in the fresh air then go have a beer. It's everything you could want in a sport and I look forward to it every week.

So here's the part that sucks. We play year round (that's four seasons) and pay $500 each season for team registration. That's usually $50 dollars each that nobody really minds paying because it's so fun. The hard part is finding someone who's willing to put $500 on their credit card.

I think it's about time we found a sponsor. A lot of the teams we play are sponsored by bars or other businesses and we'd be happy to advertise for just about anyone if they covered some of the registration fee. I posted this ad on Craigslist in an effort to drum up interest in our plight. I don't think anyone in Cincinnati reads Craigslist, though, so it might be a lost cause.

If you own a business and would like to see a bunch of people running around advertising for you every Saturday, you should email me. I know Maggie's looking for a skydiving sponsor but we're easier to read since we're not falling out of the sky!

Oh, come on. A big fatty parachute with YOUR AD scrawled across the bottom of it is like the greatest promotion ever. When the spectators look up, all they see is YOUR AD, YOUR AD, YOUR AD,YOUR AD floating gently to earth.

But you guys? You're in motion. Who can read that?

Oh Maggie, you overestimate us! We're rarely in motion.

Besides, who do they talk to if the chute doesn't open? Oops... is that bad form to ask? That could really backfire if it was an ad for an Allstate agent...
