Draft week makes it hard to get traditional NFL journos to write about funding this. Because they are otherwise busy. It would be great if some big money underwriter would see this and make it happen, but people are busy with their lives.
I was able to get my little article on the front page of Chron and I tweeted this out. But there's a difference between someone going "Hey, that's cool that someone would make an opera about Bum that Bum supports" then taking 10 minutes to give some stranger your money to make it happen.
Just seems to me that there has to be more than 26 people on the planet who would like even the idea of this, whether they actually like opera.
