(Deep breath. You’ve done this plenty of times before. Just go with your gut. Never follow your heart. A 12 seed always beats a 5 seed, Gonzaga always chokes and 15th seed American is a real college not an online accredited school. I think.)
This is huge. Every March we plunk down all of our lunch money on office pools trying to get bragging rights as the most knowledgable/luckiest in the NCAA basketball tournament. Truth be told, after roughly 16 years of competing we’ve won a grand total of 3 tournaments. And in one pool the prize was satisfaction. (Yeah…BORING) Anyways, this year is different. We’ve been invited to join a handful of other reputable blogs in a battle royale. A royal rumble of sports authorities online. An opportunity to be crowned the ‘Champion of Blogs.’ Don’t think we’re not bringing our dancing shoes and frat shirts to this party.
Here’s the deal. We’re competing against 5 other blogs:
The Play in CA
A west coast centric blog focused specifically on sports. Not only do they have good insight into Bay Area sports teams but they also seem to have a man crush on Patrick Willis as well. But did they create this shirt on Zazzle? I think not. We did. Moving on.
The Sports Lounge
Don’t be fooled. This site is neither a lounge nor does it have lounge type furniture for lounging. It’s just a website. That covers sports. In depth. But also it’s written by a college student about to take finals. Perfect. Remember Sports Lounge your school work takes precedent over silly grown-up games. Now back to the library!
A local blog covering everything Cal sports. Little do they know of our childhood spent watching Russell White run amok against Pac-10 defenses. Plus, University of Washington (Go Dawgs) destroyed the Bears this past season in Berkeley. And Cal's biggest fan is Adam Duritz….sweet. What is it 1992?
Battle of California
A hockey blog. No seriously, hockey. Sweet. Moving on.
Written by a chick, this blog covers sports and gossip. Damn it. I wonder if she likes The Hills as much as I do. Probably not because of Heidi Montag’s luscious ta-dang-a-dangs, but still a fan none the less. And she’s from Boston. Perfect. And she’s a chick so she’ll probably get confused and pick teams like the Patriots and the Celtics. Sucker.
What’s at stake? Winner gets to post on each of the other sites for one day. Perfect. We can’t wait to drop Apples & Moustaches all over the blogosphere. Like a fiber fueled bunny after a Thanksgiving feast.
