The Clog

Children can often show us things we've missed by looking at the world. This is especially true when it comes to bummerish Ohio State University almost-championship seasons and the more popular/colloquial aspects of American Sign Language. 


Tonight's Monday Night Football game is a good one, and so a good one to talk about. While our heroes at the Footballz Podcast will be doing just that, one of them will have his own personal biases to contend with. Or, more likely, just give into.


Days after Auburn's shocking, awesome comeback win against Alabama in the Iron Bowl, Toomer's Corner and the rest of town is still a happy, giddy, toilet paper-draped mess. Who would want to clean this up?


This is the time of year to be doing things like feeling grateful. It is also, not coincidentally, just about our second birthday. Thanks for all that.


Can our heroes make it through an entire Monday Night Football broadcast without uttering a crude racial slur for Native Americans? It depends on how well the Washington Football Unit plays, but they're sure going to try.


After an 86-year drought, the Boston Red Sox have won a league-best three World Series in the past decade. The club’s reversal of fortune can be traced to their sale, in 2002, to a group headed by John W. Henry. But what would have happened if James Dolan's 11th-hour bid had been accepted instead? 


Our heroes journey deep into New England Patriots country -- or, anyway, to a bar in Cambridge -- for a live show. There will be guests, and people in the background pronouncing Danny Amendola's name "Amendoler" and you should probably listen. Or, if you're near Middlesex in Cambridge, go there and listen to it in person.


The 1984 San Diego Padres were the best and most interesting team in franchise history. Which is sort of the same thing as saying they were too interesting to fit into an '80s-style highlight video, even one this heavy on Ray Parker Jr.


A photo of Michael Jordan, wearing a Michael Jordan-themed t-shirt and playing beer pong, is maybe not quite worth a thousand words. But what words it's worth are... well, wondering why he's doing that.


It's in the rules: tonight's game between the Miami Dolphins and the Tampa Bay Schiano-Hostages must be played. It's not in the rules that you must listen to Footballz talk about it during the game, but you still should.
