Land Before Time: 1 Football

Cropped-Inanimate

Way before FreeDarko was born, Big Baby and I used to do the occasionally sports-themed "column" for The Philadelphia Independent. In honor of the Super Bowl, here's one of them, about the NFL's best taking on a team of "inanimate objects." Click on it, it will grow, and then a magnifying glass will appear to aid your journey.

A few other items:

-FD now on Twitter. We don't quite know how to use it, I keep deleting things, and it's a lot less likely to sound right, but it's a nice distraction. And by all means, call us out for this stuff in the comments section right here.

-The Love of Sports interviews the double-oop team, and catches them in the act of another.

-I don't ordinarily recommend very young, very rough blogs that have nothing to do with sports, but anyone interested in politics should keep an eye on this one, by an old friend who also happens to be a true Movement OG. His first post may be about Obama and race, but there's new stuff there. Honest. I'm trying to help him clean up the look a little.

So if Joe Horn calls his mom, would it be interference on Joe or the Cell Phone?

Yeesh... you've got to help your friend clean up the format or layout of his site. Its terrible and hard to read easily. When you mix in the heavy handed commentary, one may be prone to hitting the back button as I almost did.

I will try to read the blog for a few days, but Social Justice is a topic that's irritating to follow because people can get preachy and heavy handed.

Glad that old chestnut rendered you all speechless. Here's a column's worth of Shaq-bashing to quarrel over.

Love the comic, I can only hope that the Walter Payton joke was "too soon" at the time the comic was published.

I can't tell the difference between this and the last time the steelers won.

WV: utedi - at least the Jawas were there to clean up the junk on the field

I'm still trying to figure out how an alligator is an inanimate object, but otherwise this is one of the best things I've read all week. It also serves as proof that you belong in basketball business and not necessarily elsewhere in the sports world. I can see Al Michaels leading a torch wielding mob on you guys for something like this, if it had been undertaken in a more high profile and serious manner.

It would be great if you can post some of those columns. We at the Hostpph community would love to read them.
