Palentine's Day: a celebration of guy friendships (because good buddies deserve gifts too)

This is a real email:
Hello Mike,  
My name is Alexandra Kubal and I'm the community manager at Man Crates. We are a new company that ships awesome gifts for men in custom wooden crates that you open with a crowbar (forget tube socks and tie clips — we sell the manliest gifts around!). At Man Crates, it is our mission to end the difficulties that have long been associated with finding great gifts for men!  
I'm contacting you because we are looking for bloggers to help us introduce, and celebrate, a new holiday. This holiday is "Palentine's Day" — a celebration of guy friendships (because good buddies deserve gifts too). We've intentionally designated Palentine's Day to be 6 months after Valentine's Day, squarely the middle of baseball season, BBQ grilling season, golf season, fishing season, football pre-season, and all the things guys love!  
At Man Crates we don't think it's fair that Hallmark gets to launch commercial holidays like with Valentine's Day… why should they have all the fun? So we decided to do one better and create a gifting holiday just for men! We are looking for bloggers like yourself to spread the word by creating a post on your blog about how you plan to give back to your best pal, and celebrate your friendship. Whether it's buying him a beer, spending the day at the ballpark, or enjoying a good steak, we want to hear it!  
Let me know if you are interested and I will send along a few more details!  
Alexandra
