Calling Out to My Australian Peeps
In Australia, in Adelaide, there’s a successful concern called Scalzi Produce (who I imagine are pretty ticked at me taking the Scalzi.com domain; they have to make do with scalzi.com.au), who are sponsors of Adelaide United, the football/soccer team from the area. Apparently Scalzi Produce is going to be the front of shirt sponsor for the team in an upcoming series of home stands, and I’ve decided I pretty much need to have the jersey for my own, or I may die. I’ve dropped a note to the team via their Web site, but I don’t realistically expect to hear back from them that way.
So, my Australian friends: How would I go about doing this? The team has its own online store, of course, but the jerseys they sell there don’t have the Scalzi Produce logo on it, and that’s what I really want. Is there a way to secure this particular jersey? Any Adelaide-based Whatever readers out there? Or other antipodeans with ideas? As I said, without this particular jersey I may wither away into nothingness, and we wouldn’t want that.
Update: 6:08 pm — Hey! Just got a very nice note from Aldo at Scalzi Produce over on my bio page, thanks to the efforts of Brian Forte. Likewise, Timelady did me a favor and touched base with Adelaide United. Australians rock. And yes, Justine, I knew that already. It’s just nice to have it confirmed from time to time.
