The Dems National Convention:
Choose your own adventure!
I just wanted to do a little product placement at the top of the column. Last week, we launched the area’s only dedicated prep sports blog lakesports.blogspot.com.
Award winning photographer Rob Carlson and I are proud to present the fall edition of our prep coverage: Purple and Gold Pigskin, hosted at www.lakesports.blogspot.com.
You can plug the address right into your browser or head on over to lakestevensjournal.com and click on the Purple and Gold Pigskin button. While your there, don’t forget to check the Off the Record blog or Chuck Tuck’s concert reviews, updated throughout the week (or whenever he mooches free tickets!).
Over at Purple and Gold Pigskin, we’re reporting daily on Viking Football Fall Camp 2008. We’ve got all the daily info on how the season’s shaping up. We’re also featuring exclusive interviews with coaches and players, schedules, polls and previews of Viking opponents.
Look out for the print edition of the 2008 Viking Football preview, which will be included in next week’s Journal. We’ll be running a story on Tom Tri’s innovative new Spread offense which he learned first hand from one of college football’s sharpest and well-regarded offensive minds. We’ll also take a look at some players to watch and go over the 2008 schedule in detail.
Choose Your Own Adventure: The Democratic National Convention!
Okay enough football, let’s talk politics! Check out my multiple choice reporting on the Democratic National Convention:
How about this Democratic National Convention? It sure is (A: On CNN a lot! B: Devoid of Republicans, C: Causing the streets of Denver to run with blood)!
Man, that was wild when Bill Clinton (A: said nice things about Barack, B: got drunk and fell of the podium, C: kissed Michelle Obama on the mouth D: Did all of the above and still got rave reviews from CNN’s Best Political Team on Television!).
Who woulda thought that the controversial Florida delegation would’ve (A: all stayed home to clean up after Fay, B: Cast all their votes for Al Gore, C: All showed up in Tampa Bay Rays uniforms tops with no pants on!
And if that wasn’t a big enough story, who woulda believed the scene at Mile High Field at Invesco Stadium when Barack Obama, in front of 75,000 roaring fans (A: Showed up on the wrong day, entered the middle of a Broncos fame, blocked a punt and returned it for a touchdown, all while wearing a sharp wool suit, white oxford and crisp blue tie. He then walked across the street to the Nuggets’ arena and showed Carmelo Anthony how to make three pointers while sober. B: Flipped a coin with Joe Biden in order to “clear up who’s gonna do the presidenting around here.” C: Approached the podium, arms raised in triumph, ripped off his face and…WAIT, that’s not Obama, that’s Hillary wearing an Obama mask?!!! Somebody call security!!!
Editor’s note: this column was written on the Sunday preceding the Democratic National Convention. Any similarity between the events described and actual occurrences is strictly (A: Coincidental, B: Because this is how Nostradamus said it would go down! C: You already stopped reading this column long ago).
