Shannon has done an immense amount for the Mets blogging community. On a personal note, thanks to her, I got to talk to Rusty Staub. I joined the blogger conference call a couple of minutes late, and missed the roll call. But when my turn to ask a question came up, Shannon asked if I was on the line, and made sure I had an opportunity to talk to Rusty.
She didn’t have to do that – she did it because she cares. That’s the kind of person Shannon is. Please support her now in her time of need, just as she’s always supported us.
