WORD Literary Fantasy Football!
September 1, 2009
– 1939: Jack Kerouac cracks his tibia as the running back for Columbia University.
– 1963: George Plimpton tries out as quarterback for the Detroit Lions and is nearly pummeled to death.
– 1972: Don DeLillo publishes End Zone to mixed reviews.
– 2010: You become the first ever WORD Fantasy Football League Champion.
Yes, from the people who brought you the WORD basketball league comes a sport so easy you can play from your couch.
How can you make this fantasy a reality? If you’re a reader who also knows who the guy pictured to the left is and why he matters, and can be available for a few hours one night sometime between now and Sep 10th for a live draft, then email the Commish. In the tradition of the real-life WORD basketball league, you must include a literary team name, i.e. Ernest Two-a-day (if you don’t get that then you should move along. Nothing to see here.) Did we mention the league champion will win a $50 gift certificate to WORD? Well, you will.
