When we announced “The Hot Blogger Bracket: A call to arms. And abs.“, in our wildest dreams we could not have hoped for such a response. Not only were we overwhelmed by the sheer number of you who answered our call, we have been completely swept away by talent in all of the tournament entries.
Quite simply, you guys are amazing.
Now comes the hard part.
Never again will we criticize this NCAA Selection Committee. Ever. This shit is hard. The debates, the crying, the “squees!”, the begging and pleading to be included. It can take a lot out of a Lady. So we’re taking this long weekend rest up and get ready.
GordonShumway is making another bracket, much like the Hottie Bracket we made for the NCAA tourney. Having this much hotness together for a second time will surely melt the WordPress servers.
SA, Metschick, Andrea and myself will finish getting pull-quotes from all of the writing samples. All of us have discovered some well-written blogs that we didn’t know existed until now, and strong words and minds are exciting.
Clare is going to continue to spread the gospel of “bacon pants”, and then edit all of our posts. (Conf. to Clare – I still don’t know what bacon pants are, but I want them. Or want see someone in them. Maybe we can get the winner a pair? -TSW.)
Holly is has gone on vacation after sorting through all the entries, a shell of the woman she once was. Through the babble all we could make out was, “I said ONE picture! One link!”
Texas Gal is off on another trip to yet another baseball stadium. Once she gets back, she is in charge of at least one, “DAY-UM” for each hot blogger vote.
To hold you over until the bracket’s publication, we’ve excerpted the following gems from the applications. All [sic]s implied.
*licking my fingers and running them through my eyebrows*
You mentioned cheating, shenanigans, and ballot-stuffing but left out tomfoolery, which I am a pro at. Is that cool?
I’m in the ladies pool… I hope it’s topless.
I will be your Oral Roberts . . . . Ladies.
I’m your huckleberry– I mean, your Texas A&M Corpus Christi.
And, finally, a use for that bearskin rug, bearskin thong set.
NHL â€“ I donâ€™t even know what that is. I think thatâ€™s made up.
I request bonus points for submitting a picture which
features myself and an ACTUAL LIVE FEMALE SPORTSBLOGGER.
We’d have been the guys who got waxed in the tournament play-in game, though. I vote for Ufford anyway — he’s good-looking yet blogger-pale.
i would lay utter waste to the competition (with my only foreseeable competition being Ufford… fucking pretty boy).
Been a Mets fan since I was 7, a Knicks fan since 12, and a Seminole fan since they were the only school to accept a kid with a 2.6 gpa out of high school.
I am also fortunate enough to have blue eyes and once received the comment, I love your bedroom eyes. from a high school teacher.
We may not be the most widely-read blog on the ‘net, but we’re getting a kick out of writing about mediocre football, and all of the sex it’s inevitably going to lead to.
and what I lack in wit and looks I make up for in sexual prowess. Beliee ‘dat.
Fears: Spiders, drowning, being drowned by a spider
Hands: Freakishly smooth for a male
My main goal is simply to break my single day hit record of 12. Be sure to describe me as ambitious during the contest.
We’ll see you next week.
