Aggro Me: Kill Schill
I didn't have a problem with Curt Schilling working with SOE to promote EQII because, as I've discussed before, he's been playing EQ and EQII long enough to have "gamer street cred."
And now Schilling is working with SOE on a charity event to fight ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. You can read all about it here or here (via EQ2-Daily's news aggregator). The event involves players defeating a virtual Schilling in battle.
While the cynical side of me can't help thinking it is also a marketing maneuver that will net a few EQII subscriptions, does that really matter? It's a very worthy cause. So cheers to SOE for putting this together. It will spread awareness of the cause and hopefully they will donate the full $10,000. And cheers to Curt for participating and lending his likeness. A great job by all and I hope it's a smoothly run and fun event.
Also, as a Mets fan, I hereby predict that the Red Sox will win the division this year. Laters Yankees.
