Well, I've just sat through two hours of America's Got Talent
...that damn show is a filthy addiction. It's like the movie A Few Good Men
. When it's in front of me, I can't turn it off.
Anyway, I have received quite a few submissions from readers, and like an America's Got Talent
judge, I now feel the pressure of who next to move on to the "America Votes" round. I've seen much potential, and will soon be peppering you with samples to give your opinions. Yeah, now I'll be asking
for your opinions. Don't let it go to your heads.
In the meantime, there was a mention in the previous comment thread about desperately wanting a draft analysis. To any of the prospects, if you want to earn extra points with the teacher, give a 2012 NBA draft analysis a try. I'll give you an example...here's a draft analysis Statbuster did in 2010
. You don't need to follow the format. It's just an example. But remember - two things: be cynical, be funny. Yeah, you love basketball. We all do. Now take the love and turn it into playful sarcasm. Tell us what each team is hoping out of its pick, but what each team will actually get.
Writing this assignment will by no means determine who DOESN'T
get picked - after all, who the hell can keep track of these college kids. I just want to see what people are able to turn out.
Also, a thought - there was a notion that different people could write about each NBA team- there's something awesomely gimmicky about that notion. It seems impossible, but what about people who would write about a specific division throughout the season? Just spitballing. We'll iron it out.
And for Christ's sake, somebody Photoshop us a new goddamn banner will ya? Use the dimensions of the existing one and make it happen!
