Sign Up Here For More Ridiculousness!

...yup, we're at it again. We're now recruiting for the next great-but-highly experimental SoSG mystery competition. The details will be disclosed soon, but you need to sign up to play. So let us know in the comments if you want to participate, and once we have enough players we'll let you know what you've just signed up for (this one won't be too time-consuming).

But as usual, there are stringent entry requirements which will be strictly enforced, itemized here:

  1. You must know how to post comments.

We need to keep out the riff-raff, so if you lack any of the above qualifications, don't bother signing up. NO EXCEPTIONS!

Note to AC, Delino, Orel, Sax, Pedro, & Lasorda: SoSG writers will have no advantage, so you guys are welcome to play too!

Fred's Brim said...

as long as we aren't playing cornbread....

QuadSevens said...

Urban Dictionary has some interesting definitions for "circle of death." I especially like the example of a rule in definition #1 and the example in number #5.

Eric Karros said...

Maybe instead I'll call it "The Assassins' Circle." Sounds classier. Let me think about it.

QuadSevens said...

Circle of Assassins eh? Are we going to be running around LA with water guns to take out our victims?

Dusto_Magnifico said...

count me in!

please.

Dusty Baker said...

Drive-by eggings plaguing LA.

Mr. Customer said...

@db

Yo, they just shot my little cousin, ése!

QuadSevens said...

My car was hit by those drive by eggers last weekend. I didn't know there was a plague of it though. Interesting.

Mr. Customer said...

Quad is apparently not a Beastie Boys connoisseur.

Orel said...

I'm in.

Paul said...

Mr. C

that last exchange had me laughing a good 2 minutes.

Dusty Baker said...

I cant stop laughing now and the cable repair person just showed up wondering what kind of freak I am.

Fair enough question, really.

Loney Fan said...

I always wanted to be an assassin of some sort. I never thought I would be an egg assassin, but okay.

Matt said...

Count me in!

Eric Karros said...

More participants:

20. Dusto
21. SoSG Orel
22. Matt

I'm moving the timeline up a day: last recruiting push sunday, competition details revealed monday, and the game begins tuesday.

So enjoy the weekend, as your stress-free days are numbered...

Dusty Baker said...

Can I just start killing people to get a head start?

QuadSevens said...

I think I'm going to need to get Paul's Boutique in the very near future.

Dusty Baker said...

Quad-

Meant to point out I was laughing at the situation, not you!

If you get Paul's Boutique, snag the (fairly) new 20th anniversary edition. Not that I'm a PB nerd or anything. *looks at shoes sheepishly, refuses to make eye contact*

Paul said...

Quad

Setnimentally speaking it is my favorite Beastie Boys album.

Check your head is one I can keep listening to over and over.

I wish Fural had mad hits like he was Rod Carew.

Dusty Baker said...

Or Sadaharu Oh.

Mr. Customer said...

@paul, db, Q7

The remastered Paul's Boutique is freaking excellent, but License to Ill is a close second, in my book.

QuadSevens said...

No worries DB. I didn't think you were laughing at me. It's been a long time since I've listened to any Beastie albums besides Ill Comunications and License to Ill.

Dr. Geek said...

I am totally going to Sabotage! this game.

Dusty Baker said...

Here in Pasadena, the sun is beating down on my baseball hat. The air is gettin' hot, the beer is gettin' flat.

Mr. Customer said...

Lookin' for a girl - I ran into a guy
His name is Dusty B>, I said, "Howdy" - he said, "Hi"

Danielle said...

i'm in!

Steve Sax said...

Pedro and Lasorda are eligible. That's some pretty funny stuff there, EK!

I'm in.

Steve Sax said...

Love the Beasties reference too, youse guys. Hey Ladies!

djansson said...

Hope I'm not too late. Count me in!

Mr. LA Sports Fan said...

Don't punish me for being away from a computer all day! I must participate!

Eric Karros said...

In fact I will have to close registration if we hit 30 lest becomes too administratively cumbersome.

Ubragg said...
