The Netroots Nation auction, oh it's on! The action started this morning and we've got some very cool items up for bid. Right now we're up to 75 items in the auction with more coming in very soon. Let's take a look at just a few of those items.....

Let's start with the great American past time (besides Beer Festivals and ultimate tourneys) Baseball. You can now bid on 2 VIP Baseball Tix ... to a Mets Game with LOTS of alcohol! Oh sure, the Mets are 3rd in the NL East, but did I mention VIP tickets. You can act like a big muckety-muck while rooting on the Mets to at least reach .500 ball.

Oh and I'm sure Nolan Treadway would want me to remind y'all that we also have a 2014 Detroit Tigers Baseball weekend in the auction as well. If they continue to be dominant in the AL Central as they are now, this will be a great item, especially if they'll be in town during Netroots Nation.

Oh, did I mention that Netroots Nation will be in Detroit in 2014. Register today! Okay, moving on.....

Next, get a backstage pass for Thursday, Friday or Saturday of the 2014 Netroots Nation. Whether it is chatting with Howard Dean, doing a walk-through with the Secret Service, helping as we call Gore's advance team to get his ETA, or sending a slide for Nancy Pelosi to see, you will have an exciting opportunity to 'assist' backstage, meet the keynote speakers and maybe even have a free glass of water and a cookie. Your backstage pass will allow you to shadow our staffer for Thursday (or as much of the day as you like) as we put together the Netroots Nation experience.

Did you say, "Man, I wish they had some lobster-related items" Oooh, you're in luck. Our pal, Bill in Portland Maine offers up this great auction item -Treasures from the Coast of Maine. You want it, you know you do.

Alright folks, let the bidding begin! Auction ends Tuesday, August 20th.

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.
