Additions to the Blogroll

Two new entries on the TYI-Approved Blogroll:

1) We Rite Goode is a fun group sports blog that recently (and very kindly) asked me to take part in what they're calling a "low-rent, high-concept NBA preview." I told them, "Fuck off! What, you think I'm in the free content biz, beeyotch?!!" "Of course," so you'll get to read my incredibly profound prognostications about the 07-08 edition of your Chicago Bulls over there sometime relatively soon (I would think).

2) If you're a fan of sick children (i.e., if you're a fan of these assholes, then you probably won't want to stop by 1001 Miles. But if your soul isn't shrunk to the size of a pinhead, you'll definitely want to stop by my roommate's brother's site and, if you can afford it, pledge some cash to his 1001 Miles project. Bascially, Chris is going to try to run 1001 miles this year and he's asking folks to make tiny pledges for each mile he runs. Some businesses have offered to match all of the individual donations, and at the end of the year, the whole pile of dough will go to the Children's Cancer Association. And you can track Chris' progress on his journey on his daily blog, Notes from the Road.

And as an added bonus--although I haven't necessarily cleared this with Chris--I would guess that all pledgers will also be offered the chance to take part in The Greatest NCAA Tournament Pool of All Time, which Chris created years ago and manages like a champion every year. (If anyone doubts its superlative greatness, 2006 Winner Coach Skiles will vouch for its total-rockingness in the Comments.) So not only will you be helping sick children and their families, but you even get to make March Madness somehow more enjoyable for yourself. This is win-win, people.

The joy of winning an NCAA tournament pool and reaping the bounty of respect and admiration thrown your way by fellow competitors is unmatched in its glory.

Too bad self-organized betting isn't legal.

Yeah, so go to 1001 miles and pony up.

I really like when people are expressing their opinion and thought. So I like the way you are writing
