So it's sunk in. The season is over. Charming anxiety, adventure, and acid reflux have been replaced with simulation games on NCAA Football 09' and ESPN Classic binges.
We've got a lot to talk about. And that's before we even get to next year. In the spirit of the cerebral "roadmap" law types know all too well I thought I'd take a minute to let you know what you can expect from The Rivalry, Esq. in the coming months.
More production, more seduction. We're growing, sort of. In a qualified attempt to be "The Quintessential Smoking Room" for all things Big Ten football we've resigned ourselves to creating a firm of eleven law personalities -- representative alumni of each conference institution. If you're a law student, or law graduate of the Big 10, and you're interested in joining the club, send a writing sample to Franz.firstname.lastname@example.org.
From periodic, to Periodical. If you've been reading us for a while you might remember the semi-glossy, Ivy League Newspaper excerpts we ran over the summer.
We're committed to doing everything bloggers aren't supposed to do. If that means writing cogent, grammatically-correct narrative essays, so be it.
Concepts we're bringing back from the dead: The Rivalry Classics, chronicling the lost-prognosis of the game, and The Rivalry - Debates on Draft, taking-sides on some of college football's most contentious issues.
More mise en scene. At the Rivalry, we believe college football is a cultural phenomenon; a movement rich with social, economic, and regional dimension. Want to know the best spot to lick-your-fingers in Bloomington, or wet your whistle in Madison? We'll share it.
Fitzgerald did it. Why can't I? While writing this column, The Rivalry drank a Tiger Beer longneck. With an easy, smooth mouth feel -- a la Boddingtons -- this wheat lightweight is surprisingly full-featured; a clean, linen lightly carbonated front melds into a melba toast cracker finish that works well on its own or with nigiri sushi.
