Rishi said that he felt the DBD this Friday had to be epic. It had to really bring the community together in advance of what could be our toughest challenge yet! We've got an important challenge on the horizon!
We face an enemy that seems almost otherworldy. Overwhelming, really. But we've been here before. We've succeeded in the past where people thought we could fail or should fail.
What makes it tough is that you can have a great gameplan and it doesn't even matter. Execution is key! You can map everything out ahead of time, but then when you get in the thick of it and are flailing about like a baby kitten, it all stops mattering. But, of course, without a great, prepared game plan ahead of time, we don't stand a chance.
I refer, of course, to our CGB weekly schedule for the week of 11.20.11. I was just putting it together and this thing is gonna be a BEAST! Wrapping up Big Game coverage. Previewing an ASU game that is on Friday night. Handling like 3 MBB games and 3 WBB games (with a vball game in there!). Dealing with the Thanksgiving holiday.
And let me tell you, we have 3 Cal sporting events at the same time. This Friday night we have Football v. ASU, WBB v. Hawaii, and VBall v. STanford. ALL AT 7 PM! THAT WILL BE OUR GREATEST CHALLENGE YET!
Now, I can put a great game plan together. I can map out that this post shouold go here and that post should go there. But it doesn't matter if we don't execute. If NorCalNick puts up his ASU Defense post Monday morning and HydroTech can't get his Big Game thoughts post up, it's all over before it even began! If we have an MBB open thread Tuesday night for the 7:45 PM EST 3rd place game when Cal is actually in the 10 PM EST 1st place game, it's like why even try. I'm not putting up the Texas-TAMU open thread at 1:30 PM on Thursday, no! It's going at 4:30 on Thursday, because that's where it belongs!
But goddamn it, we will try! GODDAMN IT, WE'RE GONNA HAVE A GAMEPLAN! WE'RE GONNA GET OUT THERE AND WE'RE GONNA EXECUTE! We're gonna hit our blogpoll at Tuesday at 1030. Maybe. And we're gonna smack that 3 sport open thread situation OUT OF THE MOTHERFUCKING PARK!
Because failure is not an option. Not when we have a readership of such amazing skill and magnitude that they deserve the best. The absolute best!
There's a reason why we're combined the lowest paid state employee (including private subsidies)! Because we deserve all that money! And we're gonna prove it to you this upcoming week, Week of 11.20.11. So, let's get out there starting Monday morning AND LET'S DO THIS THING!
GO CGB! BEAT THE MULTI-SPORT HOLIDAY WEEK!
