I wish I could claim full credit for what you’re about to read, but the reality is that I serve merely as the inspiration for Travis Fain, he of lucid idiocy fame, who sent me this e-mail a few days ago:
What if you and I worked to find a Dawg fan living in Montana, shipped him a UGA helmet, sent him to a sports bar and had him ask 100 strangers whether or not they recognized it? Maybe he, or even better, she, could have someone film it.
Is this idea ridiculous … or brilliant?
I think we all know the answer to that question.
Travis has dubbed this the “Montana Project”. That works for me.
Here’s the bleg part: we need your help, Dawgnation. We’re looking for a true, dyed-in-the-wool Dawg fan who lives in Stewart Mandel’s go-to state. If you’re a loyal GTP reader who lives in Montana and would like to take part, fabulous. If you’re a loyal GTP reader who knows a Dawg fan who lives in Montana and is willing to help, that’s just as good. In either case, please get in touch with me via e-mail so we can try to get this show on the road.
Of course, any suggestions on this are welcomed. Encouraged, even.
