Last Night's Conspiracy of Dunces

It's probable you figured that the morning post today would be about the NFL conference title games. Seems reasonable enough, right? And I wasn't wrong that, otherwise, it was a suspiciously slow sports-news morning.

But if you've been over to Kissing Suzy Kolber or True Hoop this morning, you'll recognize that I must 'fess up that the wheels were turning a wee bit slower this morning after a night out with a motley collection of sports-blog types, where most of us could finally put faces to names and express admiration mockery for each other's work over cans of horribly low-grade beer.

But I must say that it was fascinating to meet up with the likes of Will Leitch and AJ Daulerio (Deadspin), Matt Ufford (WithLeather, Kissing Suzy Kolber), Henry Abbott (True Hoop), Jamie Mottram (AOL Fanhouse), Peter Schrager ( and the opaque genius behind the Wizznutzz. That link to KSK above has the group photo that I likened to a poor man's "Young Guns" movie poster. But only if I'm Lou Diamond Phillips.

so when's the next Quickie party, Dan?

Wait until the Pats fans are drunk en masse in one room.

Or would you simply prefer to actually wait on that one :)

What's up with Will wearing a jacket over a t-shirt- does he think this is the OC?

Shanoff looks a little flushed. I wonder what Mrs. Quickie thought when he stumbled him at 3:30 am?

Good choice, going with LD Phillips, I'd give Leitch the Estevez tag (? why is he an estevez, is it because Kirk had some sexy Latin sex? or is that a screen name?, b/c I'd like to have some Latin sex with Salma Hayek.
