As you might have noticed, college football starts in earnest this weekend, and our man The Mighty MJD is all over it on the weekend beat. In fact, he's introducing a new project that, if you're around on the weekend, you can be a part of. We're calling it the "Hugh Johnson Weekend Project." We'll let him explain it.
What is hopefully going to make the Hugh Johnson Weekend Project a success is what makes Deadspin itself so awesome: You. The idea is to have people who are watching different games in different parts of the country send their observations in, and the best of them will be compiled into one informative, entertaining, pants-tightening post that touches on a bunch of different games. Ideally, there will be a few of these throughout the day on Saturdays and Sundays (when we'll be starting a little earlier than usual).
When games start on Saturday (and eventually, on Sundays), if you've got a thought or observation on something noteworthy happening in the game you're watching, send it via AOL Instant Messenger to "DeadspinFootball." It could be anything from a particularly amusing Steve Spurrier tantrum, a brawl erupting in a MAC game or a third-string tight end for William & Mary has an embarrassing stain on the back of his pants.
We guarantee you that will happen in a William & Mary game. The email address is firstname.lastname@example.org, the IM is "DeadspinFootball" and it's a perfectly fun way to spend one's weekend. Join in, and enjoy.
