It seems I’ve been recruited into a battle of bloggers.
In fact, these two guys are so stoked by the thrill of competition – they’ve pooled resources and commisioned an original cartoon drawing of all us blogging “combatants” by the gifted artist Wes Molebash.

I’ve been doled to Team Ricky – although I seriously question the judgement of anyone who would enlist me on their team.
Regardless, in order for Team Ricky to secure its God-given victory – I need help from my readers to visit the All-Star Blogging Challenge post and cast a vote for Team Ricky.
If you’re not convinced – I’ve gone ahead and created a short video to prove to you that Team Ricky is indeed the team of destiny.
I can assure you that a vote for Team Ricky will not be a wasted vote (unlike the vote you’ll cast for either Romeny or Obama in November).
Here are links to my fellow Team Ricky teammates – they are all topshelf bloggers with rapier wit, insightful insight and disarming charm… and all that other jazz. Check ‘em out and don’t forget to vote!!!
A gifted, yet diabolically funny writer who spins words into puns and frivolity. While some subscribe to the idea that “Two heads are better than one,” Ricky holds fast to the mantra that “Two sheds are better than one” in true manly-man powertool fashion.
