NEW YORK CITY--This week in the Cave was jam packed with awesome visits and happenings!
The week was kicked off with Ziggy Marley playing a free show in the Fan Cave! He and his band played a majority of their own stuff, but they did play some of Ziggy's father's classics. It was my favorite show that we have done here in the Cave thus far.
We were also able to do one of the coolest things that I have ever experienced. We were taken to the Topps headquarters in NYC and all of the Cave Dwellers were able to design our very own baseball cards! We each did a photo shoot and then we were paired up with our own designer. They are going to be making us several hundred copies of the cards, and they should be here in the next couple of weeks!
This was also a week for special event parties. On back-to-back nights, we had a Victoria's Secret PINK party and Nike party. It was great to have a lot of people in the Cave in the evening when games were on. Seeing people's reactions to our jobs was great.
Here is a list of the people that came through the Cave this week:
-Greg Grunberg (Actor, Heroes)
-Elsa Host (Victoria's Secret PINK model)
-CC Sabathia (Yankees)
-Corey Wade (Yankees)
-Andruw Jones (Yankees)
-Brett Gardner (Yankees)
-Joe Buck (Baseball announcer)
-Tim McCarver (Baseball announcer)
-Aaron Boone (Retired baseball player, ESPN analyst)
-Chord Overstreet (Glee)
-Todd Zeile (retired MLB player)
-Charlie Sheen... yes... Charlie Sheen!
Sheen was amazing! He was a super nice guy, and he knew a TON about the game of baseball. It was interesting seeing him just sitting on our couch watching baseball with all of the Dwellers. Overall, it was a very awesome visit!
As you know, there will be at least one Cave Dweller eliminated before the end of the month. This person will not be able to go to the HR Derby or All Star Game in Kansas City. So, of course, this is a HUGE elimination. Please help me ensure that I'm not eliminated by doing the following:
-Vote for me (voting is unlimited)

-Read my blogs and leave a comment. Here are my latest blogs:
Make sure you also go to MLBFanCave.com to pledge your allegiance to the AL or NL for the All Star Game
Here's my video that I made to encourage people to pledge for the NL.
Thanks for all of the support, and hopefully I have good news concerning eliminations next week!
