Given the success of our first couple round table discussions here at The Wise Guise (The Emmys Nominations discussion & the debate about The Olympics), we thought it’d be fun to get the regular contributors together, along with some of our newest contributors to the blog, to preview the college football season. At various stages in the e-mail thread, other friends of The Wise Guise were added. Chaos, hilarity, and occasional insight ensued. Enjoy!
Today, we at The Wise Guise are introducing a new blog contributor. We will allow him to introduce himself…
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Brett Good, and I’m very excited to join The Wise Guise. Joseph brought me on board because I was A) free and B) the best in the business at covering all things college football. One out of two of those is true. I follow University of Texas Football religiously. Am I a little biased? Probably more than Bill Simmons. In my free time, I like arguing with people on the internet.
Welcome to the first ever Wise Guise Round Table! First things first, we’ve listed all the major categories Entertainment Weekly felt were worth mentioning below, along with Clayton and mine’s votes if we were respected enough to get one. So if you’re not as nerdy as some of us are, check out what TV shows, movies, and mini-series were nominated… and which one’s were not! Then, below the list of nominees, is a discussion of sorts amongst many friends of The Wise Guise concerning the nominations… who is deserving, who isn’t, who should win, and who is missing… amongst much hilarity and general discussion about what is the good, the bad, and the ugly of television in the past year! Enjoy!
We used to have a column titled “Fair or Foul” that ran in our college’s newspaper a little while back. Since then, we have been contacted by Warner Russell, of The Wise Guise, to do a quick guest post on their blog. Personally, I didn’t ever think that we would be in action, but here we are.
The name of the game is Fair or Foul. This is very simple stuff. We choose a topic and discuss whether it’s fair or foul. There are no partial fairs or fairly fouls. Either we’re for or against topics, believe them to be true or false, or think of them as appropriate or inappropriate. With that being said, let’s get going. Read more
This guest post comes to us courtesy of Wise Guise friend Patrick Henson from Lexington, Kentucky. Enjoy his take on this year’s MLB All-Star festivities and the constant tension between one of the game’s biggest stars and the host city!
Editor’s Note from Joseph: I really love the Major League Baseball All-Star game. I was thinking about writing a post discussing my childhood home run derbies in my friends’ game room, missing so many of them for church camp each summer, my love of voting each year as a good American should, etc. But then I realized that my post would be more self-serving. THEN, I realized I’d rather read what Patrick Russell had to say. And it didn’t disappoint! Enjoy Patrick’s third guest post for us here at The Wise Guise. In case you missed his last post about baseball, check out his reflections on being a Japanese baseball fan. Read more
