What is SpreeGoogs?

What is SpreeGoogs? It’s exactly what you think it is- a sports blog written primarily as an homage to the perfect combination of all skills basketball expressed as a 2-man team of Latrell Sprewell and Tom Gugliotta in the 1995 classic NBA JAM: Tournament Edition. More accurately, it’s about sports and how thinly the analogies between sports and other topics can be stretched to provoke the imagination and sometimes allude to the 1990s.

To get used to exactly the type of content that will later be featured in this blog, the expectations will be listed in a format you oughta know how to understand:

1. Power Rankings: Get excited. Definitive, perfect rankings of things related to sports so you can stop wondering.

Get used to seeing plenty of this face

2. Top 11 Lists: It’s like a power ranking, but there’s a cutoff. The lists go to 11 to honor NBA legend Todd MacCulloch, whose basketball career may have been cut tragically short by a heroic bout with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, but will never be forgotten. It’s ironic, but a top 11 list is intentionally a little bit better than a top 10.

3. Mock drafts: This blog actually grew out of an obsession with mock drafts and a desire to publish them. The problem with reading mock drafts all day is that I’m not the doctor and all I really want is to get a chance to create my own drafts somewhere, and this is it. The problem with most mock drafts out there is that they deal exclusively with young athletes and their teams. But sometimes teams need more than just athletes, so the posts will be on actual players getting picked by actual teams, but sometimes the posts will be the teams mock drafting other things. Like what? Just wait and find out.

4. Topical posts: Whatever is hot in the streets, only slightly more provocative.

At some point, there will be a regular routine for posting the first 3 items on that list. The last one will come regularly in-between those and will depend on current events.

Like any blog, the more you read and contribute back, the more you learn from it. If you don’t wake up and jump in, you’re forgiven, but once you start, the SpreeGoogs spirit will go right through you too. So get your hands out of your pockets and take part in SpreeGoogs from your house, you’ll fall in love with it. Head over feet.
