The Cannibal Captures Caption Contest

After great debate, I've finally selected a winner for the Name that Play Contest: MERCKX. It's fitting. The Cannibal, as he's known in the two-wheel world, was ferociously fearless and ate up any kind of competition. Backing down from nothing, Merckx rode to glory by mastering the fusion of man and machine. He bested all Tour de France competitors five times and would have added one more TdF trophy, but a foolish Frenchman, yes - I'm aware of the redundancy in that previous phrase, bolted onto the road and punched Eddy in the liver. The Cannibal agonized through the mishap and placed second. He never gave up. Never quit. Never stopped pedaling. That's the reason the play, that will put plenty of points on the board and suffering into the hearts of our competitors, is called Merckx.
Congratulations, Dan Rohde for winning. You now have 24 hours to pick up your cash prize. Please present photo ID at that time. In the event that you do not show up within the time-frame, all prizes will be donated to the FFR Czar.
As soon as we score using Merckz, I will offer a video tribute. Thanks to all who entered.

I have won conference championships, been on All-Star teams for baseball, won door prizes and various events. But nothing, NOTHING compares to this award.

Sorry, but I will not be able to make the deadline for my prize.

So let it be written, so let it be said. Pick up your winnings after the freshmen girls boost their record to 3-2 this Friday at Algonac.

Have the glory days of your infamous caption contest subsided? Everyone's blogging seems to have hit a drought...

Life is getting busy. The girls' hoopsters are looking to go 3-2 with a road win at Algonac. I've got Hamlet tests to prepare, Fast Food Nation quizzes to craft and other such occupational hazzards. However, I'm well aware of the No Whining sign in my room so I'll quit whining and add a road entry blog later in the day. Perhaps even a caption contest.
