As of 2:59 a.m. Tuesday, a week-plus since the announcement, you've bought 396H2P Subscriptions! Which means we're approaching the halfway mark of the goal of 1,000!
You bought 17 Monday. We'll get there.
Repeating from the original announcement Saturday, there are three ways to get one:
1. If you're a new or returning subscriber, buy a full-year subscription at the half-off price of $19.76 in honor of the most recent football championship. Again, this is just for new or returning subscribers.
2. If you're an existing subscriber, upgrade your current monthly or annual subscription to the three-year Lunatic Level. Just click 'Upgrade subscription' on that page. We'll add three years to your existing subscription.
3. This is the big one: If you're an existing subscriber, buy a Pitt one-year gift subscription -- also $19.76 -- for anyone you know. And if you don't know anyone who'd want one, we'll place your purchase into a pool and distribute them to students at the university, with a special invitation to everyone in the Oakland Zoo. If you're interested in buying a bunch of these in bulk, email me directly at DK@DKPittsburghSports.com.
To the latter point, we've already had 34 readers buy gift subscriptions in bulk.
Our coverage begins in the biggest way today, with Hunter, Matt Sunday and I all heading up to the Panthers' 113th season opener, at the Pete against Florida State. Tipoff is 8:01 p.m.
