OK, personally, I cannot wait for this year's Blogathon. Last year, I thought it was going to be a bunch of racing stuff that I wouldn't understand. And in reality, it was a bunch of racing stuff that I didn't understand. AND I fell asleep! But when I woke up, I had so much fun.
In the past year, I feel I've finally contributed enough to this blog to earn my "Furious" in the title. And this year, I am looking forward to participating throughout the full 24+ hours. No naps. (OK, maybe one or two?) No recording studios. Just me, Wedge, and whoever else decides to join us for Mario Kart.
YES, MARIO KART.
During some of the down time in the wee hours of the night (morning?!) Wedge and I will be playing Mario Kart Wii online. You are all welcome (and encouraged) to join us. Well, 10 of you at a time, anyway.
I'm excited about this. Are you??
I am also pleased to announce the upcoming debut of the Furious Wedge PODCAST. This weekend, we are set to record our initial installment and, hopefully, it be something we can continue on a regular basis. We're hoping to record one or two episodes each month, depending on time, material, and possible guests we can round up. (Mark Micowski interview? I'll try my best!)
The first episode of the FW podcast will be a Blogathon preview and should be available to download next week. More details coming soon.
So speaking of Blogathon, it looks like we'll have tons of sports action on television that weekend. Here's a list I came up with:
Winter X Games
Australian Open Finals
NCAA basketball - Kentucky/Vanderbilt, Kansas/Kansas State, Hawaii/Nevada, etc.
NBA - Nuggets/Spurs
PGA San Diego Open
Transworld Snowboarding Team Shootout (MTV2)
NASCAR Toyota All-Star Showdown
Burger King All-American High School Football Skills Challenge
If it's on, and it's remotely related to sports, I'll check it out and let you know how it's going. What am I missing from this list?
Honestly, aside from the basketball, I would probably normally watch less than an hour of all of these things combined. But it's Blogathon! I won't know what I'm talking about most of the time, but at least I can keep Wedge company and help him stay awake. And I'm getting better at Mario Kart.
Come check out Wedge's analysis and ridicule my sleep-deprived stupidity!
