The SlangKo Postseason Hootenanny Prizes are Headin’ Out
November 10th, 2009 by slangon

If you’ve been reading this blog for the last few weeks you know that I was running a fantasy baseball type contest during the course of the post season. One reason I was doing this, aside from it being fun, was to basically light a fire under my own ass to try and finish up […]

Ding Dong…
November 5th, 2009 by slangon

The Series is over. Man, that took a long time. It’s been a pretty busy, exciting week over here at SlangKo, Inc. Aside from the SlangKo Post Season Hootenanny finally winding down, putting the finishing touches on the cards that the winner will be getting, and trying to scan and post all the new stuff I […]

We’re Going to the World Series
October 26th, 2009 by slangon

So the ALCS and NLCS are distant memories. The Phightin’ Phils will be facing the Bronx Bombers in what hacky sportswriters are already dubbing “The Turnpike Series”. As a lifelong Jersey resident, I’m not sure how I feel about being dragged into this, especially when you consider how much I dislike both teams, but what […]

Quick Hootenanny Update
October 22nd, 2009 by slangon

So the Phightin’ Phils are heading to the World Series once again, much to my chagrin. But hell, I ain’t no sore loser. I say conrats. They’re one hell of a good team and they deserve it. They Hootenanny standings are sort of clogged up at the top, with Nachos Grande in the lead for […]

Coney Island, Frenchmen, a Hall of Famer and a Stupid Plastic Bag
October 16th, 2009 by slangon

Seems like my blog has been taken over by the Post-Season Hootenanny lately. I mentioned last week that I had a post in the works involving Coney Island, Frenchmen, a Hall of Famer and a stupid plastic bag. Well, let me explain. First, what’s with Coney Island and the French? French fries from Nathans? No, […]

Hootenanny Standings for 10/12/09
October 12th, 2009 by slangon

It’s getting interesting. 3 of the series are done, which means the only people getting points now is whomever had Phillies players. Don’t forget to start putting in your picks for the next round. Again, if you want to pick a Phillie or a Rockie, just put a back-up pick in parenthesis. Here we go: […]

Hootenanny Standings for 10/10/09
October 10th, 2009 by slangon

Things here at SlangKo World Headquarters have gotten quite hectic. But in a good way. First of all, we’re working feverishly to finish up the 16 Heroes of the Diamond cards for whoever ends up winning the Post-Season Hootenanny. Also, Thorzul is having one of the funnest looking contests I can recall seeing since I […]
