I’m just a caveman. Your telecommunications devices frighten and confuse me. But I will still play in Awful Announcing’s football league just for the everlasting glory attendant upon getting down in the muck to wrassle with you fine folks.
While the joy of competition is enough for me, AA is also offering a top prize of an iPhone to the winner of the league. If you’re reluctant to drop cash on something new, this is the perfect way to try it out at no cost to you. But you have to win first, beeeeyotch.
While we’re here, I have a few more links for you:
You know how I love a good sports name. Here is Jay Busbee’s account of his childhood meeting with old-school Brave Brian Asselstine.
Great. Just great. Now if I want to watch bikini beach volleyball, I have to deal with a bunch of angry Samoan dudes.
My friend Walker has started reviewing for The Hot Sauce Blog. His first assignment was Duck Butter sauce. This is tangentially related to sports because of…. nachos.
Sometimes I think athletes know they will get in big trouble, but they shoot their mouths off anyway. It just feels too good not to. Well, Big Z is now eating the poo that comes after a blowup.
Over at Strike Zones & End Zones, Sarah is calling Virginia Tech/LSU the Tragedy Bowl. Her suggestions for ways the media and schools can overplay the angle are great, but I started laughing out loud around #3: Instead of the teams ceremoniously running into the stadium before the game, the players will start inside and run out, evacuation style.
JP interviews Liston. I remember when I was a hot young blogger once. Ah the good old days of three months ago…
When the Diamondbacks face the Padres, there’s always potential for Chris Young-on-Chris Young crime.
In case you need just one more Fantasy Football League, here’s a joint that lets you join up just 30 minutes before the final draft of the season.
Finally, OMDQ is running a great game. He’s going to do a reverse-survivor deal where he keeps track of which teams in 1-A are winless. Until we get down to the most winless of them all. And then we will pelt them with garbage.
