COUNTDOWN 2009: 34

1.

Everything changes; nothing dies; the soul
Roams to and fro, now here, now there, and takes
What frame it will, passing from beast to man,
From our own form to beast and never dies.

His ear had a real nasty cut and it was dangling from his head, bleeding badly. He grabbed his own ear and tried to yank it from his head. His teammates stopped him and the managers bandaged him. Man was that guy a tough one. He wanted to tear off his own ear so he could keep playing.

A few site notes:

--Next week is the annual Swindle Beach Invasion. You will be in the competent and bloodstained hands of Doug and Holly next week, meaning Doug will feed you tasteful cheesecake, most likely, and Holly will feed you to the sharks. You'll love both. Spicy Livin' will return next week, as well, because we have to buy an assload of sunscreen and porn beach reading.

--The return week will begin HOT DAMN PREVIEW SEASON in earnest: more football-focused, faster, and revving up to the season. This includes the return of EDSBS Live. We once had a baby and we named it w00t. Rejoice.

--Thank you again for your enthusiastic, loving support of EDSBS. Cocktails to all of you.
