There’s a new game in town. CallingAnAudible.com gives you an inside look at sports—right here on The Good Men Project.
That’s right, we’re now “Calling An Audible.”
By Mike Dittelman
Sports Fans, listen up: Before we start, we’re pulling a Peyton Manning, just without the “Omaha” chorus: Yes, that’s right, we’re “Calling An Audible” (CallingAnAudible.com). This media entity will be part of the existing site GoodMenProject.com, but we’re concentrating on sports.
As you probably know, the term “calling an audible” derives from (American) football, when the QB changes the play at the line of scrimmage upon seeing the opposing defensive alignment. This can be a metaphor for a lot of things, including how actual sports are being played on the field (so to speak), or for social changes within the larger construct of sports. Examples are the modern-day “shift” on the baseball field, or how ESPN broadcasts more women’s college softball compared to other, potentially more popular male-dominated sports (ie, lacrosse, soccer).
So pull up to the edge of your seat, look closer at the screen, and dive in: Read, watch and comment. Yell, scream and implore your friends and colleagues to join you in the fray: We’re calling ‘em out, making changes to the play and having fun along the way. (Eat your heart out, Dr Seuss.)
