It’s true: after more episodes than I care to consider, we are doing a Shutdown Fullcast Live Show on Friday, August 31st, in Atlanta at the Woodruff Arts Center. You can buy tickets here:

They’re $25 and get you a koozie, a drink, and entry into a raffle to win some other very silly merch. If you want, I will also give you a brief and respectful hug.

You probably have some questions. Let’s try to answer those.

Why are you doing this?

I suspect each of us, as hosts, have different reasons. I am looking forward to meeting those of you who listen to this show, thanking you for doing so, and apologizing in person for the show being the way that it is.

What’s the show going to be like?

More planned than a typical episode, with some elements of audience participation. If I say anything more than that I know I will doom us to not doing the thing I said we would do.

Oh, and there will be a Q&A portion that will NOT be released in the audio-only version. We are doing this specifically to reward those of you who come to the show and punish those who did not.

Is it really just you three idiots?

No. We’re still getting things in order but other members of the SB Nation family will be there. They are younger and smarter and better looking than we are, and one day they will push us off to sea on a barge.

Why is there a picture of Rex Grossman up there?

Not just Rex Grossman. Starting Super Bowl Quarterback Rex Grossman.

Fine, why is there a picture of Starting Super Bowl Quarterback Rex Grossman up there?

Because neither of us were supposed to reach this place. Behold the power of metaphor!

Didn’t the game go pretty poorly for him?
