This Just In …

Can I have your attention? I have just been handed an urgent and horrifying news announcement. So I need you to stop what you’re doing and listen to me …

I’m not Macho Nacho blogger. I’m also not worth the gum on the bottom of someone’s shoe. And don’t even get me started on my lack of participation in the Blog Fiesta.

Dammit. Tobey threw that one in. I swear.

That’s fine. I’m a self-contained unit. (One whose alma mater currently ranks higher than BOTH OU and UT in the BCS standings.)

So there.

Where the bold saguaros

Raise their arms on high

Praying strength for brave tomorrows

Where eternal mountains

Kneel at sunset’s gate

Here we hail thee, alma mater

Arizona State!

No cowbell necessary. If you’ll excuse me, we’re goin’ streakin’ down to the quad.

    I have a list of bloggers that I’ve been meaning ask if they want to do interviews. Just been short on time lately. You’re on that list. Look for an email, maybe tonight.

    OMG, you are insane. Certifiably.

    You’re on BOTH lists, and you KNOW it. Now go to your room and think about what you did!

    Ed … are you saying you want me to report the news again?

    And I was wrong on OU … I think they’re back ahead of ASU through some fluke of the system.
