As bloggers, we like to waste your time write meaningful and insightful things about um, things. That being said, the inherent inferiority complex that’s built in to a blogger’s writing is bigger than that of a pasty Canadian named Rick moving to a place like Southern California. Be that as it may, we still like to play the part of David to the mainstream media’s Goliath (or more accurately Little Mac to MSM’s Mike Tyson), ducking and weaving, and getting in little jabs here and there that the media congloms will almost surely ignore and/or pass of as being nothing more than a nuisance.
Amongst Tennessee bloggers, the target of choice has become Go Vols Xtra. The reason being that they are essentially the only legitimate mainstream news organization that is charged with covering the Vols, and the writers often have the dynamic range of a one trick pony who never learned the first trick. Adams hates Fulmer, UT, anything orange; Hooker doesn’t know where he is most of the time, and his writing follows suit; Strange writes articles that will go well with his name being part of the headline (ex. Strange: People Line Up For Tickets).
Most Tennessee bloggers have taken a jab or two at the expense of GVX, and we here have been more than guilty of that, but as it turns out, resistance is futile. No matter what we say, what we do, or how many times we hope Dave Hooker won’t write “Ironically,…” GVX will saunter on, without a care or a worry in the world, knowing that they are filling the void that Tennessee fans apparently feel so badly that there are no less than 100 comments for any football related incendiary post.
Resistance is futile motherfucker!
So, we’ll continue to play the game, poking at GVX, and they’ll continue playing their game of pretending like we don’t exist until something gives. That something will no doubt be our “spankin’ hand” but it could just as easily be John Adams’ “hatin’ hand.” A smoking hot female borg drone can only dream.
