4.20.11 Brewtown Andy's Family Feedbag: Kissing Suzy Kolber

New, 5 comments

Kissing Suzy Kolber is one of my favorite websites going these days. Named for The Namath Incident, the boys at KSK take a subject overflowing with comedy like the NFL and crush it out of the park every single time. No NFL topic or person is out of bounds for jokes at their expense.

My favorite feature on KSK is Drew "Big Daddy Drew" Magary's weekly series titled "Fun With Peter King." Each week, King's Monday Morning Quarterback column is subjected to The Fire Joe Morgan Treatment. Since King insists on running regular features in his column like "Things I Think I Think This Week," and going on and on with his complaints about coffee in the various cities and hotels in America that SI pays him to travel to, the opportunities to make fun of King are plentiful.

What KSK does best is the use of slightly fictionalized versions of NFL personalities. These fictionalized conversations, usually based on actual events, are what started my interest in KSK. One of the first things I remember reading on the site is "F--k It, I'm Throwing It Downfield," an incredibly R-rated inner monologue from at the time Chicago Bears QB Rex Grossman explaining why he refuses to check down to a wide open running back or tight end. The regular cast of KSK characters has expanded over time to include Jerry Jones, Rex Ryan, Eli Manning, and the most foul mouthed of them all, Tommy From Quincy, a fan of the team Tommy refers to as the "Football Red Sox."

I know what you're thinking right now. "But Brewtown, the NFL locked the players out! How can you recommend a football blog when there's no football content?!?" With what I've seen from the boys at KSK in the past, being entertaining throughout the lockout will be no Tribble at all.
