Ladies and gentlemen, we just wanted to let you know that we’re nominated for Best Sports Blog at the 2008 Weblog Awards. Now, normally we wouldn’t ask anything from you aside from a witty comment or two, but this is a special case. We need your vote. Here’s the link to the voting page, you can vote once every 24 hours, so do it dammit if you enjoy this blog we’d be humbled to receive your vote.
Now, the wonderful blog Kissing Suzy Kolber is the two-time defending champion of this here popularity contest. And while they’re an excellent blog that features great writing, angry rants and the creative use of profanity we so ardently support, we think that 2008 was a year for change and it’s time for that change.
We couldn’t quite figure out just what slogan to use for our get out the vote campaign, so here are just a few of the rejected slogans that came to me from our writing team:
Rumors and Rants would kick these other blogs’ asses at Double Dare!
Rumors and Rants: Fighting against man-scarves since 2006.
Rumors and Rants: None of those creepy minorities of women-folk here.
MacGyver reads Rumors and Rants.
A vote for Rumors and Rants is a vote for moustaches, chest hair and wearing shorts year-round.
Rumors and Rants: The only blog that can defeat the Ko-Dan Armada.

A vote for Rumors and Rants is a vote against Communism and childhood obesity.
Rumors and Rants: The only blog with the balls to say the Nazis are evil.
