THE WEEKLY RECAP

"Jesus Frog on a Pogo Stick! That might possibly be the worst argument in the history of FN. A forfeited turn would have provided twice the entertainment value than that gem. Who do I talk to about getting a refund? Seriously, did you think that up all by yourself or did you seek counsel from Kelly Bundy?"

ZINGERS BOOKCLUB RECOMMENDATIONS:

   The Politics of Cycling: Unibet's story - don't be deterred by the subject matter; this is a truly excellent piece of writing by FanNation's very own Bigalke

 

 **********************************

  Congratulations - America elected a new President, and not the one CCC was hoping for.  But this blog epitomises the phrase "gracious in defeat".

 

**********************************

The following were the entries for the BVOF Hallowe'en Blogging Challenge. Technically a week late, but excellent reading all the same. These are not the Best Vets on FanNation for nothing! In no particular order:

Paradox in the Vortex - Bigalke

Buy or Sell: Fantasy Football - Civardi

Homefield Advantage - Staying 'Away' from the Strip Club! - YODA

ZINGER FOUNDATION POSTHUMOUS AWARD:

TD DBag of the Week -

 

Those of you who were in the house on Wednesday/Thursday last week will know why this award is being handed out. This person filled the TD boards with ignorant, racist trash, much of which was, thankfully, cleaned up by the TD Ninja (who IS that guy?!)

There are no TDs to view because the account was deleted (see, Mods do exist!), but, honestly, they weren't worth looking at anyway.

Goodbye TonyBrownTown - and don't come back!
