Default Writers... It's that time... Looking for people interested in a weekly commitment.

I'm preparing the front page, and like I do at this time every year, I'm looking for fan columnists who are willing to commit themselves to the community here by providing a weekly article that focuses on a particular aspect of the game.

Let me know if you're interested in being on the team and maybe some idea on what you'd be interested in writing about, and I'll use this thread to start drafting people...

Heh. Beg all you want.

I could do some Mock's locks, but I don't think I should be nominated for politics.

Today's rant by Curtis LeMay:

"Over coffee with half and half, me and Rummy were discussing which country to bomb first....yeah, I'm still dead, that doesn't stop me and Rummy from having conversations..."

I can do Mock's Lock's in the general forum, easier to adjust them to suit my ego there.

I look forward to your in-depth analysis on the cost of modern tractors and the price of beans in Iowa. Oh and cats.

Well, I'm mad at these crap blowers they thru on one of my tractors. (bad turbos). John Deere equipment is usually bulletproof. How this kid managed to almost blow up the Trac-tor is anyones guess. He must of overheated the motor. If you throw the blower it can go into the heads and your talking a total rebuild, which is never as good as what comes off the line. I'm considering changing blowers, but it would void warranty. Price of beans is up, I said 6.75 and it hit. Brother had to make a serious call on the board to cover, I told him to buy back, and he made a cool 50k. Since you asked, we got insurance money and could plant what we wanted, and got beans in, and they are up, and it rained! We put some short maturity beans in and should, maybe get beans. Beans are temperamental things. If it's too wet, they won't go off the pod, too dry, they shatter on the front of the combine. Incredibly, we might be taking corn before beans.

I'm more worried about this hurricane bearing down on me in Arkansas. It should turn, but it could blow the whole crop down.

The cat got into paint yesterday, but seems to have eaten it off. It wasn't much, but he was very agitated. I've been touching up the house, and he must of gotten into some, just his tail.

That's the Farm and Cat report.

It might be difficult to gain a work-release for somebody to discuss things at your level.

Maybe you could talk it over with your hamster...I'm sure he has some ideas.

I nominate Tatoo. He needs to work on his English anyway. "Hey Boss" isn't going to carry you far in the corporate world.

Tatoo's roll will not exceed calling out players' names at randomly adorable times. "De Watts! De Watts!!!!"

Wouldn't you just love to have Tourette's Syndrome and be able to call people out?

As a midget, he would have the perfect alibi.

"jerkoff"

"your mom is down the street"

How do you dress Tatoo down? Punt him?

That midget on the man show was hillarious. Didn't they have a whole flock of them?

Before I get reprimaned, I'm just telling jokes. Still, it was funny to watch that midget chase skirts on the Man Show. Being able to look up women's skirts couldn't be all bad.

Herve's role would be to try and look adorable enough for one of the cheerleaders to get within groping range. He was a horny little ****er. He also carried a gun long before most NFL players.

Phat Endy's reports were awesome... I wish we could get one guy in each rival market as dedicated and knowledgable as PhE. I know you're lurking Phatty...

One thing I'd definitely like to see each week is a Redskins report... I'd also like to see a college buff give us the weekly College Quarterback report.

I'd love to see Slappy play a role as the Orange Mane's Dr. Dicknose, aka Doc Z. That would be a classic...

Now that i would love to do.... Assuming that they lose as many games as we are all hoping. The hate mail alone from SkinFan would make it all worth while!!!

Always lurking TJ and I appreciate the kind words about my column last year, but I'm afraid that there are a couple of reasons why I can't do the same column this year.

I'm actually taking a semester off from teaching to finish my PhD and so I won't have the same 45 minutes in the car every morning and afternoon to listen to the radio. Really, I don't listen to local sports radio anymore anyway. I bought a new car that has XM radio and I haven't tuned into the local sports radio stations much since then.

As for Zach's comment about my rants on how sports radio in KC sucks, I would have to say that this wasn't the original intention of the column. The column was supposed to give an inside track to the Broncos fans on what the Chiefs fans were saying.

Problem with that plan was that I didn't expect the Chiefs to suck as bad as they did. They quickly became irrelevant and the Chargers became the team we all cared about (or should've anyway). As a result, the theme of the column drifted towards making fun of the typical caller to a local radio show who wanted to trade Larry Johnson for Terrell Owens or complain about the officials in a 20 point loss. That's not what I wanted the column to be, but that was really all I had to work with.

Surely, you're not defending the sports radio in KC. Kietzman is an idiot who never thinks he's wrong and proves daily that he knows very little about sports (and I'm a KSU ). Tim Grunhard still thinks fart jokes are funny and his co-host doesn't speak very well since his nose is usually stuck up Grunny's ample butt. Neal Jones and Marty Wall are an abortion disguised as a radio show. Soren Petro is good, but is up against Rome and I don't get to listen much in the middle of the day. SSJ is funny, but Bob Fescoe couldn't find his turd cutter with both hands and a flashlight. Add in the fact that the Royals are freaking brutal, the Chiefs are the only other professional team in town and the radio hosts (outside of Petro) don't know ANYTHING about any college team that isn't in the Big 12 North and you could conclude that calling sports radio in Kansas City a "wasteland" would be a compliment.

Sorry TJ.
