Hey everyone, good morning. Okay, so following Deadspin's lead, we're going to add some account linking here. We're a little less high tech, but we're standing by to help. To comment here, all you need to do is send me your real name, address, birthday, mother's maiden name, social security number, email address, and major credit cards - and I'll take care of all the tricky stuff.
Anyway, so I'll briefly get on my tiny soap box (it's small because no one actually buys soap in boxes anymore). I couldn't care less about my twitter account. It's the same as my Deadspin account, @ironmikegallego, and I just created it because Uwe and a few other guys joined twitter and there was briefly a great exodus over there to make hashtags and stuff before I realized that the whole thing is just a cesspool of false death reports and Keith Law snidely talking to his detractors. But I think it's bullshit that Deadspin makes us do this. Part of Deadspin's appeal when I signed up was that they made a big point of saying "create a fake account, you don't need to give us any info." I never would have gone through the trouble of creating a twitter account, something I did only reluctantly because of my uncontrollable need to stay on top of Uwe's smoking break updates, if that was required to comment. Maybe that's what they're going for?
My commenting is way down lately, and while I expect and hope that's temporary, I do worry for others in my boat that this will be the straw that breaks the camel's back. I guess what I'm saying is that when you see me give the sign, we all rendezvous at ProFootballTalk and forcibly take over that bitch.
Anywho, enough of that populist bullshit. Let's have some fun. Here's a Youtube clip (registration required) to get you started.
