Thanks go out to Every Day Should Be Saturday's Orson Swindle for pointing us toward The House Rock Built's "Blog-ifesto," a mission statement for the college football blogosphere. It's a fine piece of work and you should give it a look.
You should also call your broker and tell him to buy stock in the San Antonio Gunslingers, because their Corporate Headquarters is doing first-rate work. L.D. has offered some insightful analysis of the N.C.A.A. tournament and The Wrangler has a competitive eating challenge few among us are man enough to accept.
For a combination of the two, check out L.D.'s French fry rankings, which have McDonald's at No. 21.
Of course, the coaches' French fry rankings were determined by ballots filled out by sports information directors and the sportswriters' French fry rankings were based on seeing 30-second T.V. spots advertising each fast food chain's fries, with E.S.P.N. touting one national franchise's fries as "the best of all time," so maybe what we need is a 65-fry single-elimination tournament. Just a thought.
