Your Most Recent Sports Scandal Brought To You By Your Favorite Emo Band

Wednesday, July 25, 2007


I know this is getting a little nit-picky, but it still made me laugh (click photo for larger image)....


Dance Dance! Blah Blah blah blah blah blah!!! Rock! For really though...Fall Out Boy is everywhere. I don't blame ESPN because it's an ad, but it's still a little much.

Being the ever clever (see, that rhymed) individual that I am, I thought of a couple others examples where an emo group/artist could help out a headline. Feel free to add you own in the comments if you see fit.

- Tour de France leader Michael Rasmussen Out After Testing Postive....brought to you by Dashboard Confessional
- Schilling Calls Out Steroid Users....brought to you by the Cure
- Michael Vick Kills Dogs, Should Kill Himself.....brought to you by Elliot Smith

Okay....that last one was a little over the top, but you get the idea.

I'm more of a classic rock/metalhead kinda guy(I'm 55, afterall) but I do listen to some of the music around today. What qualifies as an emo band/artist?

A couple of basic ones here:

John Amaechi to lead Salt Lake City gay pride parade, brought to you by Elton John.

Ricky Williams tests positive for marijuana, brought to you by Afroman.

Wouldn't a steroid or other performance enhancing drug story be better sponsored by My Chemical Romance?

Excellent call Iggy, and GM...that's just wrong.

I'm not sure if this is coincidental or whether your post affected the powers that be at the WWL's online branch, but today there is no annoying ad taking up half the headline space on the front of the site.

Hmmmm...

Great job, AA!
