Best Offseason Distraction Posts--Put Them Here Please, Save Us--Save Yourself--From Inanity
I say we are stuck in a rut and the offseason is as lame as a Bread Concert with your mom as your date. So, post the best news, great ideas, free games, sites to check, etc., without dragging us into the off-season quagmire known as Professor What If meets the dark hole of theories about things which might possibly occur perhaps maybe. Stuff to do in the off season, things to watch, etc., let's get out of our shells and expand our world, shall we? To start, I am tossing out a world beater; The new Nike Combat Uniform for the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers courtesy of the fine folks at SB nation's Black Hearts, Gold Pants--which itself sounds like a dance number you'd see on a Greenwhich Village soundstage but really is not. Modeled on Minnesota's most famous son, the artist Formerly Known as Prince, these all-universe fashion statements will rock your world.
"The new uniforms feature Prince's trademark purple jacket from the album and film Purple Rain, knee-high leather platform cleats, and a lace shirt open to the navel. The design omits several traditional safety features, such as padding for the sternum and clavicle, but Polyblend believes the sacrifices are necessary in order to capture the essence of Minnesota culture."
See them here. Awe inspiring.
Points might be awarded to special odd or cool things to distract us, with minus points for mere Cougar bashing (special Cougar bashing is a possible exception but it has to be really original and very special until the season starts when the usual alcohol-induced vitriol will be considered), whining will get you ejection from the pool of trophies to win and a curse for lifetime halitosis.
Other point garnering ideas include polls, movie reviews, pictures made with movie grade nachos, recipes for grilling, etc. Don't limit yourselves, it's summer, football is a long way off, get outside and make us lose our thoughts for a time to pass the offful season like the peanut-sized kidney stone it is.
