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?
Partly because I’ve been consumed with fantasy football drafts and partly because the university at which I work a)has no football team and b)hasn’t started classes yet, the start of the college football season this week caught me a little off guard. This round of Theme Thursday pays tribute to the scholar-athletes of the gridiron no matter how seriously they might take the first part of that title*. No one won last round, so I’ll be taking the credit (or blame) for this trio.
*Note to NCAA: I am not implying anything about the players pictured in this post. It’s called a joke.
This week’s theme is courtesy of Pam! She said she tried to avoid hockey since we’ve had back-to-back hockey themes. That must have been hard for you, Pam!
Hopefully she doesn’t stump you all too much! So put on those thinking caps, and let us know what the following three fellas have in common.
Don’t blame me! Blame last week’s winner, J! She has selected our next trio of hockey players and wants you all to find the link. I promise you it has nothing to do with animals playing hockey!
Guess the theme after the jump.
Since Games Mistress is busy gallivanting around Europe (lucky bum!), I have taken over her Theme Thursday duties. Since we didn’t have a winner the last go-round, I took it upon myself to do a little research and come up with my own. Since I’m missing hockey like whoa, I thought I would bring some NHL love back to the site.
Take a guess as to what these three NHLers have in common after the jump!
It’s time for the weekly installment of Theme Thursday. This week’s group was suggested by Sarah after she was the first to correctly guess last week’s theme.
Once again, the first person to correctly guess the theme in the comments gets to suggest a future Theme Thursday post.
So what do these fine gentlemen have in common?
