End Zones And Bibles

1. "USA Network's national Show Us Your End Zone Dance Competition is coming to Chicago on Tuesday, June 5. The competition was created to celebrate the second season premiere of the hit series Necessary Roughness airing on USA Network, Wednesday, June 6th at 9pm CST."

Never heard of it. Let's take a look-see.

Hey, that's not bad. So what are they doing holding an end zone dance competition? I mean, please.

"USA will transform a section of Pioneer Court [you know, where the Marilyn Monroe used to be] into an urban football oasis - complete with an authentic turf end zone - where the public can 'audition' their best End Zone Dance for a chance to win $25,000 and have their dance featured on USA Network."

Twenty-five grand? Beachwood Field Trip?

"For one day only, USA will transform a section of Pioneer Court into an urban football oasis - complete with an authentic turf end zone - where football fans and dancing enthusiasts can strut their stuff while a DJ spins the latest hits. A Jumbotron and bleacher seating will enable participants and passersby to check out the competition and watch a sneak peek of the upcoming season of Necessary Roughness. This stadium paradise will also offer giveaways and branded goodies, including custom jerseys for every end zone dancer, mini footballs, custom foam fingers and an Instaprint photo station (#NREZD), sure to create a Twitter frenzy."

Okay, A) not worth it, and B) if this monstrosity causes anything even approaching a Twitter frenzy I will personally fly to San Francisco and punch Dick Costolo in the face.

2. "This is just a reminder that GSN (Game Show Network) is coming to Chicago this Saturday, June 2nd to cast Chicago's best and brightest contestants for our upcoming series, The American Bible Challenge, a new game show hosted by Jeff Foxworthy."

You know you might be a Bible banger if . . . (too easy?)

Um, no thank you. (Now, if Bill Maher were hosting, then we'd have something.)

Unless . . . Beachwood Field Trip?

If you must, casting is 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. at the Crowne Plaza Glen Ellyn-Lombard, which isn't in Chicago. But it's close enough for Bible-work.


Comments welcome.
