The Self-Aggrandizing World of "Please Vote For Me!"

"People never lie so much as after a hunt, during a war or before an election." -  Otto von Bismarck

With that said... I'm Matt Otstot and I'm asking for your vote.  No, seriously.  I am. I am once again in the mix in the race for Fresno Famous with the Triple-A champion Fresno Grizzlies.  At stake (aside from my pride and ego) is a chance to design a game jersey and plan in-game entertainment.  Details on how and where you can vote in a sec.  But... when (or if) I win, I want to use this to celebrate the great film making underway in Central California.  You know the place where "The Gallows" and a host of other great films were created.  It's an amazing place and YOU need to know about it.

"I'll be glad to reply to or dodge your questions, depending on what I think will help our election most." - George H. W. Bush

Okay... so on to the voting.  You can vote as much as you like, as often as you like (provided you're voting for me).  Do so here:   www.fresnogrizzlies.com   It's the Fresno Famous b bracket.  Again... I'm Matt Otstot and I'm asking for your vote.  I was in it last year and got beaten in the second round.  But I'm older, wiser and now have THIS blog backin' me up.  So, show a little tastefully sarcastic love -- and click on over and vote.  And vote.  And vote.  And then, vote one more time (for me) just for good measure.

Hey, I know I may be running on the "Snowball in Hell" ticket as far as my chances.  But, to harken back to an earlier blog - Why Not Me?  Why Not Now?  We can make Minor League Baseball in Fresno even greater.  I promise beer in every tap.  Dogs in every bun.  And runs, hits and errors on the field.  To quote "Field of Dreams" if you vote him, he will win.  And if you're saying only schmucks care about winning elections -- then let me be your schmuck.  Please consider this blog my stab at a "For Your Consideration" campaign. The site is:  www.fresnogrizzlies.com.   The Name is Matt Otstot.   And I'm asking for your vote.   Thank you.  God Bless You.  And God Bless the United States of America.  (And... cue the patriotic music)  - MO
