So on day 1 of launching the 2009 Idol Pool, the blog had 126 hits, a new all time record. Yesterday, 28 hits. Today, 7. Yet somehow, only 34 people have signed up for the pool (35 if you count Jess Gelles signing up twice).

What the hell is that about? Get off your ass, move around…motion creates emotion. Tell me you don’t like my firm. Tell me you don’t like my idea. Tell me you don’t like my fucking neck tie. But don’t tell me you can’t find a couple friends that want to be in the pool.

Get some people signed up for this thing. I’m not kidding. If we don’t crack 100 people in the pool I might just shut it down and privately blog about Idol for my own well being. And trust me, I’d be no worse off. I happen to find myself really funny.


Official Launch of 2009 Idol Pool!

February 17, 2009

Dear Friends, Enemies, Family, Co-workers, Mistresses, etc,

Today, with the first showing of the final 36, I’m launching the 2009 American Idol Pool.

You’ll notice a lot has changed since May when America crowned David Archuletta Cook as the 2008 American Idol. George W Bush Barack Obama is  President. I’m still not married I got married (please send gifts if you haven’t already – The stock market is roaring sucks.  And Finally, The Idol Pool has a new website (…I think it’s awesome.

We’re getting all high-tech this year.  You’ll be able to sign-up for the pool online.  You’ll be able to cast your picks online.  And, continuing what was moderately successful last year, I’ll be posting to this blog on a weekly basis, if not more.  Who knows, we may even have some guest bloggers participate.

So, without further delay, please click here or at the top right of the page where it says “Sign up for the 2009 Idol Pool Here!!” and get your ass involved.  Tell everyone and anyone you know who might want to be in the pool.  Just send them to the blog to signup.
