Goatriders of the Apocalypse

... and the idea took form!

From The Depths of a Frozen Hell...


I've had a brilliant idea for a Cubs website. It's the sort of idea where they start talking about you on national radio. The site would be called Goat Riders of the Apocalypse, and the motto would be "Believing the Cubs Will Win the World Series THIS Year, No Matter What the Cost to the World!" The site would need four contributors (Plague, Pestilence, Death, and Bob), all who had to be funny, could expound on relevant statistics, and would moderate on the site's message board, which naturally would have to be the hippest, happeningest place on the net.

Our logo would be four pale riders carrying scythes, but instead of horses, they would naturally be riding atop goats.

If anyone reading this decides to steal the idea and make it their own, all I ask is that I get to be one of the four main contributors. I'd prefer to be Plague, but I'll settle on being Bob.
