Sorry for the short diary as I'm on my way out the door to my nephew's championship baseball game but, I had to blast this out quick.
HufPo has a nice little ditty up about various Green Bay Packers who've been speaking out urging voters to vote out Scott Walker.


Green Bay Packers players are helping to get out the vote in the Wisconsin recall elections.

On Monday, wide receiver Tori Gurley and tight end Jermichael Finley tweeted their support for the labor movement in their state, noting that they are members of unions. Cornerback Charles Woodson has also been an outspoken supporter of collective bargaining rights.

Wisconsinites, this is a great fun fact to share on your social networks with friends and family on election eve! If there's one thing that most all Wisconsin folks value, it's the green & gold! I'm more of a Brewers/baseball fan but hell i'll take it! On Wisconsin, ALL HANDS ON DECK. Tomorrow I'll be driving to GOTV from start to stop! Let's do this!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
