    Any writers in the house?

    As some of you might know I used to run MaddenMania and am one of the brains behind the version of Operation Sports that relaunched in February 2008 (and then proceeded to conquer the world).

    Anyway, I am currently in the process of launching a new web site.

    Aside from an occasional story that hits on video games in the grander scheme of things, the site will have very little to do with video games. So this isn't a competitor to Tradition Football or Operation Sports or sites of that ilk.

    It will instead focus on pop culture, politics and other news of interest.

    Think Deadspin knocks up the Drudge Report.

    I have some writers already lined up but am looking to grab a few more folks. So if you are a good writer with some experience writing columns or opinion pieces and would like to talk hit me up via PM or email at blygilmore@gmail.com.

    I'm basically looking for folks who can commit to writing at least one original article a week (which isn't that hard to do) and once we get rolling there will be revenue sharing in place.

    I'm probably too hateful to be broadcast over the internet.

    If your looking for hateful, I can do that.

    Do you mind controversial points of view?

    For example, here are my thoughts on securing the Mexican border in a nutshell:

    This solves two problems, immigration AND growing concerns over pit bulls.

    1. Take the many unwanted pitbull variants that are put to sleep each year and chain them five feet apart along the US/Mexico border.
    2. Don't feed them.

    Anyone who makes it across the border can stay.

    I'm kidding, by the way.

    considering i used the expression "punch a baby" on the site today, Mexican border stuff would be the second most offensive.

    if you're serious drop me an email. I pulled together a nice email to a few other folks about this and could just forward it onto you.

    I wrote an article about killing the girls on MTV's "My Super Sweet Sixteen" titled "How To Get Away With Murder. It was probably some of my best work. It involved a teenager, a wood-chipper, an even larger wood-chipper and a volcano.

    I also went on a tirade about how I don't feel sorry for girls get wasted and then get taken advantage of. I think it's the same article I suggested we raise the legal abortion age from the second trimester to 80 years old.

    Yes.

    The one about the skanks was in response to "Ode to the Nice Guy." It's a viral article that went around a few years back in order to increase vaginal secretion over the interwebz. I'm warning you, just reading it will make your hair fall off your nuts.

    btw the site's currently live in a soft launch phase (basically that means we're writing and posting content but the site's not 100 percent ready to start marketing).

    Take a look. I've love to hear what folks think and any constructive criticism.
