Undoubtedly those of you who peruse the sportswebtubes have been made aware that the "ladies" of Ladies... is engaged in some sort of sportsblogger Handsome Off.
I know when I got to my email this morning, I had dozens of messages. Well-wishes, perhaps? A best of luck? Nope. All of those messages were from other bloggers trying to get me to vote for them. And that's not going to happen. Nope. Nice try, random dude I've never met. See, unlike The Ladies, I have to know a person to truly gauge their hotness. Unless they are good at Table Tennis, in which case all bets are off.
I would like to decry not just the gross superficiality of the "Ladies" and their contest, but also the mewling baby kittens who are trolling for votes. Gentlemen--show some self-respect out there. For Christ's Sake, you don't see anyone here at IDYFT begging for the kind of fleeting glory, meaningless validation, and superficial gratification of winning a Hot Blogger contest, do you?
And sure, some of you may point out that none of us were put into the field, and that we are therefore not in the running. That's an excellent point for you. Well done. All the same, surely we can all agree that just because our blog isn't "widely-read" or "particularly well-written" or that we aren't "conventionally handsome"* doesn't mean any one of us here at IDYFT couldn't have gotten deep into this tournament (not to mention deep into some of the voters. Yeah, you know what I'm sayin').
Well screw all ya'll. We are glad we are able rise above this disgusting, pandering spectacle.**
For shame, Ladies...for shame. We don't need you! We don't need anybody!
*Just kiddin'. To a man, we here at IDYFT are almost devastatingly handsome.
**We are also quite upset about not getting a chance to not rise about this disgusting, pandering spectacle. If there's something we do well, it is disgusting spectacle.
