Dick Chang’s Gang Bang #DCGB

A couple months ago (or one month, or a few weeks) I text internet-famous and holder-of-my-heart Jayme Joers about starting a Fantasy Football league for all of our tweeps. All of us are so far up each other’s asses on twitter anyway, a fantasy league will give us something to actively participate in during our non-busy days, instead of passively commenting on worldly events; be it sport, politics, or baking. I figured she might even want to write about it, since at the time her blog was suffering an identity crisis. She text back that she would give it some thought, or maybe she just said “hmmm”, but it wasn’t a flat out refusal.

So I kept pressing the issue.

Now, I might have had ulterior motives. I’ve always wanted to be in a legitimate fantasy league. I read about them all the time. I listen to Simmons and Matthew Berry talk about it all season. We all watch the NFL all day on Sunday anyway, we might as well have something riding on it. And I don’t get a lot of football e-mails during the week. I can count on my Pats fan friend and my Bengals fan friend for a few e-mails a month, but nothing like the constant stream of shit talking and roster updates I imagine fantasy football would flood my inbox with. That and I’m wildly competitive. Most of these people have more twitter followers than me, but if I dominated David, Colleen, John, Wally, Jayme, Al, Geoff, Kyle and Thad in a fantasy league, then screw their followers. “Winning isn’t everything, it’s the only thing.”

So I set the wheels in motion and recruited a few friends to start twitter bullying Jayme. She wasn’t having it. Problem was, I’d already promised quite a few people this league was happening and I’d personally jazzed myself up about it, we had to have it, she had to agree.

She didn’t.

So I started a league without her. I invited most of our favorite tweeps, some of them refused, but most of them said yes. I left a spot open for Jayme figuring she’d come around, and then this happened. She broke my heart, so now we’re going on without her.

I’m managing the commissioner duties considering I started the league and recruited all of its members. However, I wanted everyone to feel like they had a say. I figured I’d crowd-source as much of the decision making as possible. Crowd-sourcing being a much more appropriate m-o given the venue and my personal disdain for democracy.

I don’t think my political persuasion is a very big secret, either on this blog or on twitter. I hate democrats, I hate democracy, give me an authoritarian dictatorship any day. That being said, I’m friends with a bunch of pinko troop haters. Ninety-eight percent of my real world friends and one hundred and seventeen percent of my blogosphere friends all have donkey tattoos on their asses. That is my reality.


So we set out for a name and some prizes. I created a poll for a league name:
1. Out of fear and self-loathing
2. (RIP) Jayme’s Packer People
3. #leagueupallnight
4. Packers Practice Squad
(and via Zac) 5. Dick Chang’s Gang Bang

As of this morning everyone is signed up. Enough votes are in to project a winner. We have an official hash-tag and if the post title didn’t give it away, the winner is Dick Chang’s Gang Bang. #DCGB

I didn’t think this name would fly at first, but Zac assured me & the people have spoken.

Follow the happenings here. Our next crowd-source will be t-shirt ideas for teams placing 1st through 12th.

We’ll miss you Jayme
