Hmmm… are MLS Bloggers truly FRAIDY CATS??? Why haven’t YOU Joined the MFLS Bloggoff??? PLUS a list of FAMOUS CONTESTANTS & THEIR COMMENTS



Last month, Nutmegged sent out invitations to join our 1st Major Fantasy League Soccer Bloggoff. Within a week, we got two confirmations and one, “I don’t really do this sort of thing”. Another week past and we got another yea.

So, I guess the question is WHERE THE HELL ARE YOU? ALL YOU NEED IS TO LEAVE YOUR BLOG NAME AND CONTACT INFO BELOW. WE’LL THEN SEND YOU SIGN UP DETAILS. OR YOU CAN GO AHEAD AND REGISTER @ MFLS.COM AND I’LL SEND YOU THE JOIN DIVISION PASSWORD. IT’S THAT SIMPLE.

To date, we have:

CONFIRMED and read these famous people’s words!

Center Holds It- Jeff Bull wrote: “OK, I finally stopped being lame. Center Holds It has a team and it is cheap. Yesss....”
Look out for this guy. His devil may care attitude brings to mind Paul Newman in Cool Hand Luke or the Hustler. Inside info sez this guy was the co-champ of another prediction league bloggoff. He also has that Harry Palmer type charm.

DCenters wrote-“While I am horrible about doing this sort of thing, I am in for it.”
Hmmm… if this were playing poker or pool, this would mean this guy is gonna give us a major ass whoppin’. As in I’ve played a little bit before… some. Watch this guy.

La Galaxy The Offside- “Crap. I forgot to get back to you, didn't I? This does sound like fun. Only probably is I'll be traveling without a computer for most of this month. How much will this affect me?”
Not at all, Laurie. At our age, we’re elated to have a girl even talking to us. But I have to ask, especially in this internet age, you ARE a girl, aren’t you? Still, you haven't joined our division yet, so we are still girl less.

Soccer Tickets Online- “STO (soccerticketsonline.com) will play, no need to goad us. since we are only a few months or so old, we may not have Goff's following, but we have plenty of chutzpah (we think, we don't speak hebrew though so we could be clean out of the stuff for all we know).”
Shite, another guy who seems really smart. And who, likes the rest here, writes really insightful posts. Yikes, will Nutmegged get whomped this season?

Nutmegged- mr3d insinuated, “don’t look at me, it’s the other guys…” (points to indicate Martek and playtherapy).
Martek will handle Predictions and playtherapy will do the fantasy league. Though playtherapy won both his fantasy divisions in MFLS and Fox Sports Ligas and came in 2nd in the prediction league, that says little as the pack thins out in the final months- you’re only competing against two or three people.
BTW- playtherapy sometimes likes to play RPG’s and Martek is a Trekkie- does this mean we’ll have penalty points deducted before the season begins?


DECLINED
Steve Goff’s of the Washington Post friendly reply in mr3d’s ee cummingesque style: “thanks for the offer, but i don't usually play the fantasy leagues. best of luck!”
We’re all cool with this and sincere thanks for the response (we’re happy just to have a reply), just please don’t pull an Eliot Spitzer on us, okay? In other words, after asking you to the prom and you saying it’s against your ethos, just don’t show up with anyone else.

UPDATE: Drew from WVHolligan joined us. A good chap, but only since he joined.

Face it, you're either with us...

or you're a terrorist.

Martek said...

Hmmm. Now we're letting FC Dallas types in the league? Who's idea was that? :>

Just kidding Drew. Your site is actually one of my favorites on the Web. Welcome aboard.

I know it's right up against the wire, but I'll join on behalf of Who Ate All the Cupcakes.

Be prepared for flying frosting...
