Are fans

My dad sometimes tells a story about how when he was growing up he had this relative named Marie but that he always thought her name was Armory. That's because his family always referred to her as "our Marie" to distinguish her from all the other Maries out there. And of course, in Philadelphia, our is correctly pronounced as are, so there you have it: our Marie --> Armory.
I immediately thought of old Armory when I read this story about Donovan McNabb's knee problems in the Philadelphia Inquirer. Right at the end there is a quote from coach Andy Reid.

"They should have been disgusted," he said. "We didn't perform the way that are fans deserved our football team to perform."

I couldn't fail to disagree with coach more. Are fans do indeed deserve our football teem to perform.

Greetings!
My name is Erin Chaves and I am contacting you to find out what advertising/sponsorship opportunities may exist on your blog. I am in the process of promoting the services of a fantastic hair restoration doctor in New Jersey. He has an excellent reputation and has performed more than 6,000 hair transplants.
I am reaching out to prominent local bloggers in order to promote and receive feedback on the client’s website. I am interested in the following opportunities, and am open to hearing your suggestions for other arrangements:
· Review of the site and offerings, with a link, for a one-time fee (250 words or greater).
· Sponsoring a few of your posts (we pay a one-time fee for you to mention, with a link, in a few posts that the doctor sponsored them).
· Mini-banner or sidebar links paid 6 months up-front.
Please let me know your thoughts on how this could work for you. If you have pricing in mind already, definitely let me know. I am eager to have a chance to catch the interest of your audience and support a great blog.
Thanks!
Erin

Please, please plug the hair plug doc!
