Tis the season to love Jingle Jackal

Many of you may be wondering if we were going to be doing a charity project in honor of the Anderson family this year. We have helped so many wonderful charities this year, lets save our 'change' and do something else instead.

I love and adore all the projects we have done over the years. I love how generous not only daytime, General Hospital, but more importantly Bradford fans are. In his name for various causes we together have raised over $10,000. Yes, you read correctly. Not too shabby, eh? We have raised awareness to so many causes, we have helped so many people, children, touched so many people’s lives. Some we know…know we do not know. But this year with all the changes in daytime, I think it’s time to go back to the basics.

So this holiday season I am going to ask you all to drop a Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or a New Years card in the mail to Bradford. Can’t afford a card? A note on any paper you can find works perfectly as well. Whether you are currently watching, or haven’t watched in years. This talented man, who loves and adores us, needs to know we still love and adore him. He needs to know that no matter what, we have his back. Always!

Sure the studio is going to be going ‘dark’ soon for holiday break. It does not matter. Send the card this week; send it next week, the week after, whatever. Just mail it before Christmas. If he doesn’t get it before break, so what who cares it’s safe to say that Bradford wouldn’t mind getting a holiday cheer from you even after the New Year.

Sure you can write on his facebook wall or tweet him, but if you want him back on YOUR TV screen. If you want to see more Spinelli in 2012 and you think he deserves a storyline worthy of his talent…or even just want him on more, more involved, etc. It doesn’t matter what you want his story to be, who you want him to be paired with, etc. I personally am still curious why he can't remember his cyber skills. I am loving how he is being sneaky, and has more confidence in himself. He is standing up for himself more. But why the basketball? Why was he living with Granny? Where or who were his parents? There are still so many stories and unanswered questions about this loveable character, that I want answers to. I want to know what happens next...but in order to do that we need to actually SEE him on our screens more. Sure its hard to muster up motivation when he is hardly on, and we don't really know what his storyline is or where its going...but thats the thing. Frank and Ron are experts. They make me look forward and want to see One Life to Live everyday. I also love being spoiler free for that show. I don't like to know whats going to happen.

First we need to let his new bosses know Bradford is a valuable asset to not only to daytime, but is cherished and adored by the fans. His character has touched so many fans in so many different ways. I am forever reminded of Ari (the little boy at Zanies in Vernon Hills, IL who did not attend the event, but got to meet Bradford.) His real life Spinelli. I was lucky enough to witness this encounter. Bradford was a pro with him (like there’d be any doubt). I love people watching, and I love watching certain actors with the fans. Bradford truly does adore and love his fans, no matter what their exterior or interior package is. This little boy met his hero. It’s one of my all time favorite Bradford moments. If I wasn’t already a huge admirer and fan of this man, I think I would have become one at that very second.

Screw the French hens or turtle doves, just give me Spinelli.

So let us be elves this holiday season and spread the love and cheer. Bradford is Mr. Positivity, and Hopeful, least we can do is be the good little elves next to him cheering him on. He loves his job, he loves his co-workers, he loves his fans. He wants to stay there as long as everyone will allow it. Lets give him that wish. Let’s get Spinelli (and Bradford) back on our TV screens in 2012 where he belongs. Not only does he deserve it, we the fans deserve it too.
