Okay, so there I am - a quarter `til midnight, hanging out in my backyard. I'm 17 yrs old, gas is a buck four, and cigarettes are a buck eighty a pack. I have nary a care in the world. Then out of nowhere, I see someone jump my fence. Getting ready to start chucking empty bottles, I realize it's a friend of mine. So at that point, I'm back to feeling copacetic, right - but not him... he had a dilemma. He needed me to get him out of a jam. For reasons that defy explanation, my friend needed to borrow a pair of underwear. See, he was set to see this chick that lived a street down from me and he didn't want to go over to her house wearing the same ones he had on the night before. So, I did what any good friend would do, I gave him a pair of my boxers and sent him on his way. Suffice to say he owes me one.
What's the point? Well, that kid grew up to be a graphic designer, and on the strength of our 15 year friendship has agreed to design a 10"x13" Battle Red Blog promotion poster that we can pass out at to local sports bars. In fact, I already have a green light from the owner and proprietor of Brother's Pizza and Sports Bar here in San Antonio. "Bring it in, and I'll hang it."
So we have a graphic artist, a place to advertise, and now we need your help. Battle Red Blog needs a slogan. See, anyone can design a badass poster with a fire breathing bull on it, but what is going to really set that image off is a catch phrase that sums up what Battle Red Blog is all about. That's where you come in.
Battle Red Blog was built by you for you - and now you have a chance to put your stamp on it. If your entry is chosen, we'll send you a Texans T-Shirt and give you the admin rights to edit or erase one account of your choice. Okay, okay, so I haven't cleared that second prize with Tim, but he can't stop me from sending you a T-Shirt in appreciation. So be witty, be creative, and submit your slogan ideas in the comments section below.
UPDATE: We got some really good slogan ideas over the past two months. Here are the five finalists, feel free to make additional suggestions in the comments below. Keep in mind that these are really slogan intros. The rest of the slogan will follow along the lines of BFD's suggestion of "BRB: Your home for Texans news and analysis..." The winner is still getting a T-Shirt and a maybe a beer koozie. Good luck and thanks for your help!
