From most of our readers, if we type out the initials "KSK", we'd probably receive emails wondering if we made a typo and switched out a k for an s.
But, KSK is the acronym for a little known fringe of blogfrica, located at Kissing_Suzy_Kolber.
Recently, the "bloggers" on KSK held a contest to determine what lucky individual would receive a special invite to participate as the last member of their fantasy football league.
NOIS felt that it would be a worthwhile undertaking to claim the spot as our own. We also felt that we would be doing the "blog" a favor by giving it the unparallelled exposure it would get from the affiliation with NOIS. As part of the lineage of the original tribe of blogfrica, we feel a social responsibility to lend assistance and guidance to all inhabitants.
So, we submitted a reasonable, friendly and detailed application for admission into their league. An application highlighting the advantages our inclusion would provide. Submitted under the assumption that all entrants would be evaluated with an open mind and that presumed ideology (read: race) would not be an issue or used in determining acceptance into the all-white undertaking.
To our consternation, our application was rebuffed.
Our first instinct, rage. The pondered response was a concentrated assault of deadly vitriol aimed at assassinating the character of KSK. But the reality of the character of KSK assured the futility of such an energy draining proposition.
Further instinct led to the possibility of mustering our garrison of commenters and "busing" them to the hinterland of blogfrica occupied by KSK with the intention of orchestrating a peaceable, though staunch, virtual picketing of the site.
But, we realized, based on the admonition received in the rejection, that a better course of action was available.
"We couldn't bear the thought of spending a season being lectured to by these guys."
In light of that sentiment, our course of action is clear.
We're gonna start a fantasy league with these guys.
