Hangar 18: Bloggers v. Rockers Fantasy Football

All of you who read EAR FARM with any frequency will know that I tend not to talk about sports on this site much. Don't wanna alienate all of you bro-haters out there. And yet, here we are, SPORTS! What gives?

Well, as you may (or may not) know, the NFL season got started this past week; and with it, a slew of nerds got overly football-geekcited about their Fantasy Football drafts. Count me among them. "But Ear Farm, I thought I knew you!" Yes right, well not entirely. Bear with me folks, because I'ma make this one worth your musicnerd time...

Behold, ladies and gentlemen, the first season of Hangar 18: the Bloggers v. Rockers Fantasy Football League. This league pits six bloggers (My Old Kentucky Blog, Gorilla Vs. Bear, Ear Farm, ninebullets, Indie Interviews, and I Guess I'm Floating) against six musicians (Tapes N Tapes, Vicious Vicious, Margot & The Nuclear So & So's, The Muggabears, Arizona, and Mancino) in a battle to decide who amongst the twelve of us will reign supreme as the Indie Rock CHAMPION of Fantasy Football. Below are the competitors, with a sample post linked to for each blog, a sample song for each band. As well, below you will find our league's results for last week, the matchups for this coming week, the current roster of my team (two former Wolfpackers but missing Rivers - !#!$@#$), AND the song "Hangar 18" by Megadeth (which, lent its name to our fine league for no good reason other than it being a song that rules).

Mancino said...

Glad you're riding high and decided to share with the world your victory over our team in Week 1....
HOWEVER, It's not a sprint EARF, it's a WAR (...uh, a war of mixed expressions apparently)

Your team sucks, Mancino must not know what a football looks like...
