Challenging a Challenge
The NFL returns! Only now it's more existential, or metaphysical, or something I can't even comprehend. If a challenge flag falls on the field and nobody sees it, does Daunte Culpepper still slurp balls? But more importantly, is it true that Hines Ward invested his Super Bowl bonus in buying 50 percent of a massive dry cleaning conglomerate?
So foosball is back, albeit a bit more boring than I remembered...and to get you in the mood for the full weekend return of America's new pastime, Jim Mora tells us what every team is playing for:
Slack Link of the Day: Oh c'mon! Who writes headlines like these? That settles it, I'm moving to Japan. There are so many gems inside "Slutty schoolgirls and self-circumcisions: All in a day's work for a urologist," but the headline is worth a read alone.
Slack Video of the Day: Here's an overwhelming piece of evidence for the argument that beating your kids should be totally acceptable in certain situations. This clip is both bitchingly awesome and wholly unawesome, all at once: The Crazy Frog Brothers.
Slack Song of the Day: The new Medeski, Martin & Wood with John Scofield album (Out Louder) has leaked, and it sounds pretty damn good. There's nothing on it that exactly breaks new ground, but it marks a solid return to that typical A Go Go sound that MSMW made you love in the first place. Here's the first track off of Out Louder, a nostalgic but fresh tune called Little Walter Rides Again. Enjoy.
