Phoenix, AZ--

In 2010, the BBA Commissioner posted this article, specifying how to properly write a Team News. In it, he posits that a Team News must be "at least two solid paragraphs of original, owner-created written content." The interesting thing is, that very rule was not original content, but was in fact stolen from the GUBA Constitution. The Talons find it humerous that the very rule against copypaste articles is itself copied and pasted from another league's rules.

Why are we asking this, you may ask? Well, the Talons really want to build up the points this year. So Phoenix is trying to determine exactly what would just scrape by as "enough" when it comes to a PPT worthy Team News post. What we are saying is, we want to write team newses, but they can get tedious and repetitive, especially for those of us who are not published authors. I mean, who wants to hear over and over about how good a hitter Bartolo Ortiz is or how many brain cells Timofei Bakitski has killed with a lifetime of heavy vodka consumption?

Anyway, on to the news! Oh, wait, what's that? You mean we've written two paragraphs already? And they are "original" and "owner created"? Well hot damn, looks like we're done! See you next time!

GO Talons!

as a vodka man myself (my drink of choice for all things, including AFBI), I would be very much in on bakitski related vodka articles.

"Vodak"... that would actually be a really cool brand name for vodka. You're a genius!

Can Bakitski's new nickname just be Vodak?

Remember American Movie? Mike Schank is thrilled that he found someone he can drink vodka with. You all owe it to yourselves to watch this movie.
