Blogathon 2013 Schedule

Our annual Blogathon Preview Podcast is now available. Wedge and/or SpeedGeek may be posting some racing thoughts later in the week.  For now, here is a schedule of events to watch on television and chances to interact with us throughout Blogathon 2013.

This year's features include another round of Mario Kart as well as a screening of Kart Racer (2003).  To participate in Mario Kart (10:00 p.m.), post a comment here or contact us during Blogathon with your Wii ID so we can add you to the game.  This is a fun event each year and one of the highlights of the 24 hours for me.  If you want to watch Kart Racer (1:00 a.m.) with me as I live-blog, see the end of this post for details.

Here is an updated schedule.
