F Blog Wars, How About an Old School Color War?

Color War 2008

Just when you thought that the interwebs were getting nasty & stale, Ze Frank comes to the rescue and is bringing the old school Color War from summer camp into the cloud with ColorWar2008.

From Ze’s ColorWar2008 Post:

During the summer we were divided into discreet units, older kids here, younger kids there, Hiawathans by the lake Tawasenthans by the ropes course, etc… But when it came time for color wars you had no idea who would be on your team. It was a release, and it was viciously fun.

So, for a while I’ve been thinking about how a color war might look online. How would you play tug of war, or other group games that were silly, time limited, and awesome… and more importantly how could you create teams within an already functioning environment to have that same people-mash-up effect that we did at camp.

This is your chance to participate and be a part of something cool.

All you need to do is follow the team of your choice, along with @zefrank and get ready for the fun the ensue. You can join any team you like, but I recommend the @verygreenteam.

Why? Because we kick ass. Plain and simple.

Need some more encouragement? Don’t take it from me, take it from GaryVee, star of WineLibrary TV & Marketing 2.0 Superstar.

Got it? Cool. This is going to be fun!

    Break yo self fool and step off my turf. I don’t want to see any tagging, flashing, pimpin’, or crumpin’ on my watch. Don’t make me go OG on your ass for stepping out of line.

    Remember: my colors my honor my colors my all
    with my colors upon me one soldier stands tall
    tell me what have you left me, what have I got
    last night in cold blood my young brother got shot
    my home got jacked
    my mother’s on crack
    my sister can’t work cause her arms show trax

    I’ve been there! please stop, cause I want ya all to live.
    This is Ice-T, Peace…
