The Weekly Dawg Sports Literary Competition . . . But, First, a Survey!

First, I need to take care of some administrative stuff, with respect to which your patience is appreciated. SB Nation wants to hear your views on the user experience here at Dawg Sports. Reader feedback is critical to the network’s efforts to improve user experiences, navigation, and brand integrations, so you have been asked to take this short survey. All responses will be kept confidential, and the entire process will only take a few minutes. In addition, the three SB Nation sites with the highest percentage of completed surveys will have a $500.00 donation made in the site’s name, to the charity of the site’s choice. Should Dawg Sports be one of those sites, our donation will be made to the Food Bank of Northeast Georgia, the charity to which we made a contribution following last year's Goat Roast. Your assistance is appreciated.

Now, for the fun stuff:

My old friend Jeff Rogers was, and remains, the undisputed beard-growing champion of our circle of college pals. It was said, with only minimal exaggeration, that Jeff could shave first thing in the morning and grow a full beard by sundown. Consequently, whenever we discussed having a "Cheers"-style beard-growing competition, we always immediately disqualified Jeff as having an unfair advantage, named the proposed trophy in his honor, and competed with one another for second place.

So it is with the now-weekly Dawg Sports Literary Competition. Listen, you know, I know, and the American people know that Cherokee’s Grip is going to win this thing, but that shouldn’t discourage you. Beginning this week, I’m going to ask Cherokee’s Grip to do her thing, and, when she does, I’ll promote her poetic fanpost to the front page, no questions asked. When a contributor builds up a track record, that contributor gets the benefit of the doubt.

The rest of you, knowing that Cherokee’s Grip’s offering is going to be promoted, anyway, are invited to author and publish your own literary offerings in the fanposts by 4:00 on Friday afternoon. At that point, based partly on the comments and recommendations each contribution receives, the best of the non-Cherokee’s Grip artistic works will join Cherokee’s Grip’s contribution in being promoted to the front page. So you’ve got that going for you.

Join in the fun, everyone!

Go ‘Dawgs!
