Vertically Striped Radio - Episode 119 - 07-30-11 - Football Overload

Football!!! The lockout is over, and Craig has his mind on the pending pigskin. With a crazy week of NFL free agency just passed, Face and Craig broke down the goings on in the world of the NFL. We also made our picks for the division champs for all 8 divisions, putting our picks up against picks made by rolling dice and the picks of a three year old boy. Hopefully by season's end, Face and I will both be better prognosticators than a preschool lad and random chance, but the odds are probably against us. 

 In addition to talking football, we also inducted two more members into the Vertically Striped Hall of fame...members who have frequently been a subject of debate between Craig and Face in the past. Craig also sprinkled in some music recommendations from the new album "Join Us" from They Might Be Giants.

The big decision for the night was to select the movie "Rubber" for the next He-Man Movie Watcher's Club discussion next Saturday, as when you have an opportunity to talk about a movie about a killer tire, you have to do so.
