Off-Season Fantasy Football!
But Chiz, how is it suppose to work?
It's very simple. The draft is composed similar to a regular fantasy draft. You choose players that you believe have the most redeeming qualities. However, instead of tracking their stats in turns of yardage and TDs, you'll track how well your players perform in the real world. Here's a list of examples of how the scoring system will work:
-Player donates to charity (3pts.)
-Player endorces a worthy cause (2pts.)
-Player participates in any variation of Make-A-Wish (2pts.)
-Player appears in a commercial that is actually worth a chuckle (1pt.)
-Player makes a funny guest appearance on a television show (1pt.)
-Player makes an absolutely unlaughable commercial that's so unbearable that it contains the capacity to ruin your entire day (-1pt.)
-Player uses racist/homophobic slur (-1pt.)
-Player sleeps with a pornstar (-1pt.)
-Player goes bankrupt (-2pts.)
-Player appears on a reality television show (-2pts.)
-Player shoots someone in the leg (-3pts.)
-Player shoots himself in the leg (-4pts.)
-Player headbutts his wife (-5pts.)
-Player runs a dogfighting compound in their backyard (-7pts.)
-Player accused of raping someone in a bathroom stall (-20pts.)
-Player appears on Dancing With the Stars (Automatic Loss)
It's a work in progress, but I think with enough dedication, I can actually get this thing off the ground and gain a massive following. If you have any further ideas that may enhance this project, fire away!
In Other News
As most of you know, I’m thinking about starting up a new blog/website (read the last post if you're uninformed). I drew up a few characters for your viewing pleasure (Carl not included, though I have a draft of how he’ll look):
(See if you can match the character to the corresponding Sin)
I drew the characters on Paint.Net which I’m still not all that familiar with so excuse the bumpiness of the drawings. And before you ask, I don't know why they have button eyes.
Anyway, I’m still not exactly sure what it is I want to do. So I’m going to lay out a few option and you guys can vote on which sounds best/most feasible.
Use the blog as Carl’s personal journal where he muses about life and/or current event where the varying 7 deadly sins input their opinions. It’ll essentially be like a verbose comic strip without cool pictures.
Use the blog as Carl’s personal journal, except have only one of the 7 deadly sins features per post. For instance, if Carl is being passive about an aggravating situation, have Wrath evoke some sort of violent response out of him.
Rent out a domain and ditch the Carl idea, essentially making a universal blog. In other words, use each of the 7 deadly sins as links to sections of the catering to certain subjects.
Envy: Cool electronics/devices
Pride: Self help
Sloth: Video games/Entertainment
(Will require additional writers)
Make it an advice blog where people submit questions and get advice according to the 7 deadly sins. (May require additional writers).
Those are just a few options, and I’m up to any suggestions you may have.
In other other news, somehow Sandy didn’t affect my town all that much. My girlfriend’s car was serial crushed by two trees, and I’m miraculously sitting here with everything still intact.
Also, my offer on a condo was approved today. Woo!
