It started innocently enough with a jazzy show at Tonic and ended with a shitty Marvin Harrison Sunday night performance that could spell trouble for my strangely unlucky fantasy football team. In between, well, a whole lotta cool shit happened.

But perhaps the most exciting thing I did this weekend was my booking a weeklong trip to London for late January/early February. Don Fiedler, Handstand the Younger and myself -- with the possible addition of Jacob Zebra and Bart Starbux -- will be jumping across the pond for an eight-day, seven-night Premiership Extravaganza, seeing three top-flite games and whatever else comes our way in one week's time. Those British are gonna love the Three Jerk Tour.
Now, here's where you come in...I've never asked you for shit, right? Never once for a dollar, never once for a handjob? Have I ever once requested your hand in killing my neighbor's cats, or ever for a foot in sticking it up my boss' ass? We've written 1,400 posts on this here blog and I've never collected a single dime, never received a basket of swag and I've never ejaculated onto a Slack groupie's chest.
I'm calling in my favor now: We don't wanna pay a lot for this muffler, so we need connections to tickets at any football stadium in or around London proper. So if you know ANYBODY with any sort of connections, please either e-mail me at email@example.com or post something helpful in the comments section below. I'll love you long time.
Slack Link of the Day: This thing's pretty cool -- Canstruction, the Society for Design Administration's unique competition to make a contribution in the fight against hunger.
Slack Video of the Day: Oh, how I miss Mr. Show...here's a great one called The Audition that used to crack me up to no end.
Slack Song of the Day: Why not, Neil Diamond's Cracklin' Rosie.
