Craft Like A Champion Week 4: A Numerical Trivia Challenge

Not sure what all this is about?  Click here, or follow the link in the sidebar!

Something strange happened when I started pulling together this week’s Craft Like A Champion post.  I was looking for athletes who could be a visual representation of the number of hats we’ve so far completed.  Now, there are some very famous retired athletes associated with this number, but I wanted pictures of current athletes with their current teams.  I did find some good candidates, but I also found not one, not two, but four fairly high profile athletes who used to wear this number but, because they’ve switched teams this off-season, now have new numbers.

I was going to just tell you who they were, but then I thought, why not do a reverse of our old Theme Thursdays game: I’ll tell you the theme, and you tell me the athletes.

For your first hint, here’s the number I was looking for as modeled by a few football players:

Last Call for Brackets!!!

Just a reminder you have until Noon Est Thursday to join the Ladies…Bracket Brawl.  Don’t worry if you’ve never picked a bracket before or haven’t watched a college basketball game this season — sometimes the best brackets are filled out by people who don’t spend too much time analyzing their picks.

But, if you need some help, here are some helpful strategies for picking your bracket (interspersed, for your enjoyment, with some cute college players):

Show us your stuff!

It’s time for the holiday hangover where you’re still in letdown mode after Christmas, sad about heading back to work and not yet jazzed up for New Year’s Eve. The other Ladies… and I had a whole email conversation about sports-themed ornaments so in order to stave off the winter blues, and because it’s moderately interesting what sort of stuff other teams make, here’s a smattering of the sports themed ornaments on my tree. Link up to some of yours in the comments.

Theme Thursday Has A Cold, So Cut It Some Slack, Okay?

This week's theme is not: colds, tissues, or edgy hipster bangs

Theme Thursday makes a triumphant return because, well, because I have a cold and I wrote this one down when I thought of it a while back just in case my head was ever to be stuffed so full of mucus that it impaired my ability to write about sports.  As we haven’t played in a while, I’ll remind you of the rules: first person in the comments to guess what these three athletes have in common gets to suggest a theme for a future post.  Ready? Set?

Inappropriate Fatheads

LebronDunkFatheadSo I came up with this feature as a new twist to “Caption This!”  See, a coworker and I were looking at Fatheads for no apparent reason.  When you click on one, it will give suggestions for others.  Well this lovely LeBron James Fathead popped up as a suggestion.  We both thought it was sorta inappropriate.  It kind of looks like he’s thrusting his crotch in your face.  So then we thought of some other sports pictures that would make inappropriate/funny Fatheads.  And the idea was born.

Follow me after the jump to see some funny and highly inappropriate Fatheads.
