WNBA

I'm watching a WNBA game right now.

Did David Stern threaten to take the NBA games to VS if ESPN didn't air WNBA games?

Seattle Storm tickets! Plenty, no PLENTY of great seats available.

If they followed the NFL rule of not showing empty seats on camera this whole game would be filmed with a 90 mm zoom lens. They'd have to shoot this game with a camera in the ball.

The arena is so quiet I can hear the refs talking to each other word for word. The crowd noise tells me that no one is paying attention to the game.

And for the most part, I'm enjoying it.

The question I have, what programming are they funneling us towards by airing this? It's like when they show figure skating during the playoff games.

Looking around, I see ESPN was running WSP. Do people still watch that? What did ESPN air before the World Series of Poker? Why no more strong man competition?


Why can't I find my remote? Who's that girl player who everyone says is great? Why isn't she on my tv?

I'm going to get up and change the channel.

  2. Didn't one of them just get busted for DUI?

  3. Candace Parker is married to Sheldon "Forehead" Williams HAHAHAHAHA.

    I think Sue Bird is hot. And she's on the Storm.

    And I just punched myself in the face repeatedly for knowing the above two facts.

  4. they could shoot the game from above with the viewpoint being only as wide/tall as the court is. that way you would only see the court and not all 45,000 empty seats.

  5. All the players should be naked.

  6. Hey FELLOW WRITERS OF AWESOMENESS (aka this blog):

    Let's pool our money together and buy an ad for our blog on PT. We could do it for as cheap as $65. I'm completely serious here. That's like $11 each. And then we'd have every right to complain about PT. Check this out:

  7. Ian Seg already gave us enough advertising on that site.

    ReplyDelete
  8. The point is if we pay it gives us free reign to complain about everything. Also, we could then make tons of new "CLICK THE ADS!!!!1" posts. It's been like 6 months since we've had some of them.

  9. Why don't we just do the google Adsense thing?

    ReplyDelete
  10. He is saying purchase an ad so this blog will be advertised on another site.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I will gladly paypal 20$ to buy an ad for this blog on PT

    ReplyDelete
  12. Yeah, we could use our profits from Google Adsense towards advertising for our blog on PT!!! Hahahaha!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Great spend $65 on PT.

    Then maybe they can restock the medium size footballs.

    ReplyDelete
  14. I don't think we have to worry much about profits for google ad sense for awhile

    ReplyDelete
  15. I would also pay $20 to advertise this blog on PT. You guys wanna make it happen?

    ReplyDelete
  16. One more 20$ investment and I'll throw in the extra 5

    I suggest we use something based on the current header as our ad. Nothing fancy, just clean and sharp.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Adsense is worth a try. It's free and impossible to lose money. I would chip in for an ad, but I don't have any money to spend.

    ReplyDelete
  18. If I were to chip in, would it be through paypal?

    ReplyDelete
  19. paypal would be easiest I think. I assume CW has paypal, since he has PT, AX, IB, TW and everything else on the internet. Since it was his idea, we'll send him the money.

    ReplyDelete
  20. May I suggest an ad that says,

    The Illiterate Blog
    If you can read, you probably shouldn't click this.

    ReplyDelete
  21. I made $2.21 on adbrite. Success stories.

    ReplyDelete
  22. I made $0.53 on Centsports. Reminds me of the movie Two For the Money..

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yeah, of course I have paypal. I invented the internet, after all. You can send to me at collegewolf@hotmail.com.

    If you guys really want to do this, send the money and I can look into how we buy it. Do we want to do our banner with that quote: "If you can read, you probably shouldn't click this."

    ReplyDelete
  24. This sounds epic. However, I literally have no money to contribute, which makes me feel sad.

    If we can put Adsense on this blog, I'll promise to click 1000 links. Would that help?

    ReplyDelete
  25. I am poor. I'll try begging for a few pennies on the street.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Does anyone have an adsense account?

    btw, it would make more sense to advertise on anime porn websites. That's the audience we want.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Make a sign that says,

    "Iz elliterit. plez giv aney spair chanj."

    ReplyDelete
  28. I've always wanted to try prostitution...

    ReplyDelete
  29. Could I make a banner? It will be more professional than my first...

    ReplyDelete
  30. I think you can make a banner... I haven't looked into what we submit for the ad yet.

    Also, I have an adsense account...

    ReplyDelete
  31. And I'm dead serious about the Adsense ad-clicking.

    ReplyDelete
  32. And about this post: I say they just put up walls in between the seats and the court, so that the cameras can't possibly show empty seats. As for the people in the seats with their views obstructed by these walls - well, it's not like anyone was watching anyways.

    ReplyDelete
  33. They know if you repeatedly click the ads.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Make multiple accounts, it's the general solution to most things.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I'm too poor for an ad, also lazy.

    ReplyDelete
  36. How much does adsense pay per click?

    ReplyDelete
  37. It depends. It's incremental.

    ReplyDelete
  38. anonymous, sign into your account or go to hell.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Ad sense revenue is measured in various ways. Clicks earn more than impressions. Just go to Google Adsense site and read about it. It's not too complicated.

    I don't think we need to waste time with ads on our site. That will make us look less retarded than we are.

    Maybe if we get a lot more traffic at some point....

    ReplyDelete
  40. I don't think adsense is a great idea. Let's just concentrate on keeping this thing active for awhile before we start arguing about who gets more pennies than someone else.

    ReplyDelete
  41. My thoughts exactly.

    We still need to advertise on PT, though.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Jeremy, you're just saying that because you know I deserve it all. After all, I am the founder.

    ReplyDelete
  43. If I had to drive to your house to get my 63 cent share I would.

    Well, I'm not sure where you live. I guess I'd probably have to fly and drive a rental.

  44. My lair is underwater in the North Pole. Good luck reaching me.

    ReplyDelete
  45. Jared's "lair" is a mobile home in Indiana. The only things in there are huge portions of breakfast food from Cracker Barrel, many pairs of overalls, and a computer?

    ReplyDelete
  46. This is where I make a crack about your moms basement.

    ReplyDelete
  47. You may have "founded" this free website, but I was the one that forced you to do it. And I believe it was Meatwad's idea. We are tri-founders.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I joined, don't I get a share?

    *shot in head*
