The ongoing efforts to bring attention to the Morgan Center's dishonest landgrab at Pauley is having some epic results. Mexi posted last night that the online petition now has over 1,000 signatures. For those who haven't signed it, go here and sign it. For those who have, thank you and please pass it on to other Bruins who may not have heard of it yet.
The Facebook event Vote To Restore Den Seating is also having great results. Over 900 Bruins are attending the event and are urging the students to to Vote NO to preserve The Den in its rightful place on the sideline.
Now it's time to take the momentum from the petition and the Facebook campaigns and use it to push our cause to another level. It's time to tweet, Bruins.
If legendary greats from Coach Wooden's teams can get behind this, and if budding stars like Josh Smith and Anthony Stover can get behind this, then we need to reach out to some former BenBall Warriors who are shining in the NBA and pro leagues right now and get them behind this, too. You can simply copy the text in the block quotes below and paste it into your twitter message box. This will get our message to them.
Some of our Ben Ball Warriors and some other legendary Bruins, with suggested tweets, after the jump...
Our Ben Ball Warriors know the importance of having a raucous Den on the sideline. Here are some of them that we think we should tweet at:
Here are some other Bruin legends who should be in on this, too.
Feel free to suggest any other Bruin legends who we should consider adding to our list.
Be sure to leave the period in front of the .@handle so that every one of your own followers sees your tweet. If you leave that period out, only your followers who also follow your target will see your message. We need everyone's eyes on these messages so make them count. And if you aren't already following any of these Bruin greats, you should be anyway.
So, all you Bruins with Twitter accounts...get to it! And for those who want to join in, go here to get a Twitter account (it is free) and help us spread the word that we need to keep the students on the sidelines in Pauley Pavilion.
UPDATE II (gb): HT to reader Wayne who compiled a list of other Bruin legends we should tweet at. (My leaving DC off the initial list is unforgiveable - sorry!!)
