What's a Link from Captain's Quarters Worth?

(Via Captain Ed)

Captain Ed is in full disclosure mode as he live blogs Justice Sunday II in Nashville. In an earlier post he informed us, in the interest of full disclosure, that his travel expenses would be covered in return for his coverage of the event. He said nothing about who would be covering his transportation, food, and drink expenses while he was there. Not until today, that is!

Apparently, Lance from Red State Rant picked up the lunch tab for Captain Ed, Trey Jackson, and Joe Carter before the event today and has also been providing transportation while they are there. I am going to take a wild guess here and say that Captain Ed's bill for lunch was between $10-$14 based on the picture of Lance from Red State Rant on Captain's Quarters. It looks suspiciously like Applebee's, or some place very similar in the background, so I'm sticking with the $10-$14 range with a margin of error of plus or minus $2-$3.

Lance from Red State Rant got 8 links in one post from Captain Ed today at a price of between $1.25-$1.75 per link. Of course the price goes up some when you factor in transportation costs, but it still seems like Lance from Red State Rant got quite a value. I checked all of the links and each one sends you to Red State Rant, which of course is the blog of Lance from Red State Rant.

Of course I mean all of this in good humor because I know that Lance at Red State Rant is just being a true southern gentleman and displaying the hospitality that we Southerners are known for. I'm sure that Lance at Red State Rant would have done the same thing even if he hadn't gotten a single link, because that's just what we do in the South. We make others feel welcome. Lance at Red State Rant is no exception.

(By the way Lance, I just provided 9 links to your site in one post, and it didn't cost you a dime. What can I say? I'm cheap!)

Full Disclosure: In the interest of full disclosure, the above post was intended to be humorous in nature. No seriousness was intended nor should be implied.
