Giant Bomb Somebody set us up the bomb!

GiantBomb.com is the gaming news / community site with Jeff Gerstmann. Jeff is a stand up guy and defender of all that is right about video games (like the Mario Marathon). We can't imagine why they wouldn't want to cover the event this year. We've had supporters in their forums for years, but this year we're shooting for the front page!

That's a good group you've got there! That's a good group you've got there! ($1,000 from a single site)

Kotaku KOTAKU Y U NO LIKE MARIO MARATHON

Gawker Gaming site Kotaku doesn't cover gaming marathons, but this year, Mario Marathon is more than a gaming marathon. We'll have Mario themed cake, handmade Mario crafts, a live action fighting game, and a trivia tournament to crown the worlds biggest Mario fan. Maybe that's enough to get Kotaku interested, or maybe not.
