Today is going to be a weak effort and I apologize in advance but I got nothing to write about today and I don’t feel like trying to come up with something.
But I do have a few announcements.
First, everyone set your DVR’s to FSN Ohio for 6:30 p.m. (maybe 6:00) on Thursday, Aug. 21. That’s when your favorite blogger, J Beanie himself, will make his highly anticipated state-wide television debut. That’s right, this mug is going to be on TV. Just be happy it won’t be HD. If you wondering why FSN Ohio would make such an outrageous decision, it’s because the high school football team I cover, Aurora, is opening their season that night against Avon. They asked me to get involved with the broadcast since I’ve been covering Aurora football for the last two years. I’ve already recorded an interview with Aurora’s Ohio State recruit defensive lineman and I’ll be doing some live pregame X-and-O’s with Jeff Phelps. Sweet huh? So everyone be in front of your TV then, set up the DVR to make fun of me later and enjoy J Beanie coming straight into your living room.
My other announcement is more of a question. Remember how we did the NBA draft through the comment section? Well it’s time for another draft. This time a more fun one that won’t result in the selection of guys we don’t know or don’t know anything about. But we can still make fun of people’s selection of course. I’m talking about doing a fantasy football draft of course. We could do it just like we did the NBA Draft (only hopefully a little smoother). So I’m asking who is interested, if the comments are the best way to do it (then I can go set up the league at ESPN or CBS or where ever and enter our rosters), what day is good for the majority of us and should we do it for money? The money might be tough with Graig and Dammon not living near us but that can be taken care of with a old fashion mailed envelope or I could even pick it up. (Yep, don’t get scared but I’m coming to Dublin next weekend. I’ll tell you more about this later.) So let me hear you thoughts on this and if you think it is a good idea. We need at least eight guys to make it worthwhile and 10 would be ideal. I’m calling all my old commenters out; Rosie, Wes, Frank, Joe Face, Graig Jr. Any and all are welcome. Let’s get this going good.
Enjoy the weekend. Enjoy Phelps winning eight gold medals and the fans “storming the court.” Enjoy the 100m dash on Saturday to determine the fastest man in the world not named J Beanie. And enjoy The Indians on Fox on Saturday. How the Indians still get a nationally televised game, I don’t know.
