TMQ back and Seems to Enjoy the "little read book"

POST #    559

The football gods have shown their mercy (even though Disney has not) and TMQ is back! An entire column written by Mr. Gregg Easterbrook himself! This week, it resides on Football Outsiders (which happens to be a great site), next week, who knows.

If you read on, there is some cool stuff that TMQ says about my site. I'll just paste it here for you to read in case you don't get to the TMQ column.

"Note: thanks to the efforts of Tien Mao, a New York City construction guy with a severely cool personal website, you can still read my Maroon Zone column here. Mao has rescued everything the Ministry of Bristol tried to drop down the memory hole, though without the cheesecake and beefcake photos, sadly. Isn't this just the beauty of the Internet? One guy working alone in an apartment in New York, greatest city in the world, single-handedly frustrates the attempt of a huge corporation to make something disappear."

I just want to thank Gregg and Aaron for their kind words (Aaron in his maroon zone analysis). It should also be noted that I am not really a "construction guy" even though I work in the field of construction. I am more of an "office guy."

- the TMQ controversy

I have the TMQ images from weeks 2 through 5 of this season, if you'd like them. Let me know.

thanks for the offer patrick, but i don't feel industrious enough (read - lazy) to put all the photos in.
