Blogathon 2020 Schedule and Car Picks

We're back for another Blogathon! If you've been here over the last 12 years or so, you know what's up, and if you missed SpeedGeek's class previews, be sure to scroll down. I even (kind of ) helped him this year!

Anyway, once again, we'll be here for 24+ hours, watching sports, screening an AWFUL movie, eating terrible food, and writing nonsense poems about it all. Life got busier for us this year, so we may all be a little more limited than usual, and we're limited our annual Pick 'Em Challenge to only cars this year, but we'll be here from start to finish doing something or other.

This year's awful sports movie is Benchwarmers 2: Breaking Balls. The film is available on Netflix for those who would like to follow along live with us. We'll load the movie and instantly pause it, and we'll press "play" at exactly 9:00 p.m. Feel free to watch along with us and comment on the live-blog post.

In addition to the Rolex 24, the Australian Open, and X Games coverage, the college basketball schedule once again features the Big 12/SEC Challenge, so there will be a bunch of great basketball games to watch throughout Blogathon.

First, here are the results of our Rolex 24 Car Draft. We'll update points every 6 hours or so.

Me - 6, 31, 55 | 911, 62 | 11, 86, 9, 48, 16 | 38

Andy - 7, 5 | 912, 3, 4, 25 | 57, 74, 88, 12 | 81

Allen - 10, 77, 85 | 24 | 44, 14, 19, 47 | 52, 8, 18
