Well, with the new status updates in the "New" dA page... is this Shoutbox thing obsolete?

Been about a year and a half since anyone posted anything here... folks, is anyone looking at the Shoutbox, or has Twitter made it redundant?

"Also, you could make the case that for an awful lot of the world, soccer represents a small time, 90 minutes more or less, and a small place -- that little green patch of grass -- where rules apply.  Where boundaries and laws are enforced.  Where misbehavior and cheating have consequences.  Where, to put it bluntly, there is in fact a small and temporary oasis of order in their otherwise chaotic, violent and random world.

"Football, on the other hand -- real football, American football -- strives to generate an hour of chaos and violence and randomness in a functioning and ordered world."


Bill Whittle, The Hater's Guide to World Cup Soccer

***

Well, folks, it arrived in the mail Friday for the pre-season.  Blitz: the League for the PlayStation 2.  

I went ahead, fired it up, waited for the slow load, and got myself through the game's Training Camp to figure out the controls.

And I can say this freely and charitably:  I suck at it.

When I tried the practice plays to figure out how to do the special moves, and just plain not get tackled or smeared across the field, I saw myself getting clobbered.  Repeatedly.  And the trainer repeatedly chewing and cursing me out  (hey, it's a Mature rating game from Midway) and saying my sister could probably play better than me.   

Somehow, I finished the training exercises for rushing, passing, and receiving.  And in their "Prime Time" mode, I was able to score long run and pass touchdowns in a bread and butter way.  No icon combos, but I can do the job.

But defense?  I got problems.  I can't follow the ball or carrier fast enough, and I can't keep the other team out of my end zone even if I had barbed wire and machine gun turrets.  (Though admittedly, that WOULD make the game a bit more fun.)

I hate sucking at anything.  And thus I've been reluctant to start the campaign mode with my San Francisco Sissypants, even though I set up the team, uniforms, logo, colors (pink and yellow) and everything.

So to help me psyche up for the season, I'm wondering about my fellow DeviantART friends.  Something you want to try?

Post to this entry, give me a city/area you want to play for (it doesn't have to be where you live, if revealing your location's a problem), and I'll see if I can give you a team mascot and colors for you.  Or maybe you can tell me your own, if you could have your own national league American football team.

I have some ideas already for some of my friends already:

mirz333 :  The Chicago/Gale City Firestorms.  Black, red, orange and yellow.
DavidCMatthews :  The Orlando Dynamos.  White and orange, or purple and green.
tbolt :  The Pittsburgh Rolling Metal.  Grey and blue.
nighthawk81 : The Las Vegas Pit Bosses Casinos.  Colors are... whatever the boss wants.  EDIT: Which is green, green, and more green.
JoeyLiverwurst :  The At-Large Werewolves.  Grey, brown, black, and blue Green.
Captain-Savvy  :  The Georgia Pirates.  Red, black and grey.
JakeMcCormick :  The Maine Starfighters. Charcoal, silver, and brown.

Did I leave you out, reader?  Did I get yours wrong, and have another in mind?  Post below and let me know! :)
