LOSER CONTEST ANNOUNCED!
With the Olympic Opening Ceremonies only a few hours away the entire staff of the needtovent empire felt it would be fun to run a contest aimed at identifying the all-time "LOSER" in sports or politics or any other category that comes to mind. As most of you will agree, our nation has become overly obssessed with winning, so much so that it is clearly time to celebrate the lamentable losers among us. And believe you me, America is rife with worthy candidates, past and present -- just ask anyone associated with the USC Trojan football program. Three-peat my ass...
The attached photo is that of Joe Pignatano, the only major league baseball player to ever hit into a triple play in his last at-bat. Poor old Joe is clearly a legitimate, legendary, lachrymose "loser" worthy of lampoonery if ever there was one. Alas, he is but the tip of the imbecilic iceberg.
As always with the needtovent contests there will be a GRAND PRIZE of indeterminate value for the winning submission. So don't delay, nominate your all-time BIGGEST LOSER by submitting your entry in the "Comments" section below. Please remember to identify yourself so we can contact you should your submission be the winning entry.
Let the fun begin.
(Must be 18 to enter. Entrants cannot be related to any player or coach of the Seattle Seahawks or a member of the Branch Davidians. All entries must be recieved by midnight February 20; that's President's Day. A coincidence? We think not).
