Season 2 ......

 

THE WEEKLY RECAP

"Some people think football is a matter of life and death. I can assure them it's much more serious than that."

- Bill Shankly (September 2, 1913 - September 29, 1981)

 

"The spirit, the will to win and the will to excel - these are the things that endure and these are the qualities that are so much more important than any of the events that occasion them."

"I firmly believe that any man's finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is the moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle - victorious." 

- Vince Lombardi (June 11, 1913 - September 3, 1970)

FanNation **** of the Week

 

This week saw the return, and swift deletion once again, of bconngemini. Still hating on soccer, he has now also turned his attention to hockey, which will do him no favours with this site's PUCKHEADS!

 

Also still in action posting TDs with no arguments is Thurman Merman (the former Dwight Dumps on U).

 

New Kid on the D Bag Block this week was Klocke1212. Challenged Porkins (top of the TD leaderboard with a 92% win percentage) to a TD where his opening "argument" was "You suck at throwing down". (Porkins response earned him #1 spot on last Thursday's Zing list.)  In addition he started TDs with the titles of "I am definitely way sexier than you and could rape you in a fight" and "Michael Vick is innocent and is the best". He has since had his account removed, to which we say, good riddance!
