Today at Challengers… Patrick has spent the morning crunching the November sales figures and setting up the financial templates for 2012. I know, right? After not updating Tumblr all week we return only for this post? #Lame
Today at Challengers… Dal started his New Year’s Resolution of “Let’s Spend Less Time Working On The Challengers Website” early by spending basically all day overhauling the Challengers website. It’s barely presentable, but you should be able to go take a look and see it get put together. I would not stand super-close, though.
Today at Challengers… customer Donald Cardenas and Patrick ironed out the details of the Challengers 2012 weekly sketch-blog Challengers Assemble! It will live here: http://challengersassemble.wordpress.com/ Interested participants are welcome to email Patrick at email@example.com and every Monday Morning starting in January he will announce the week’s character/theme....

All New People
Today at Challengers… Samantha (while looking at the ad for the Apocalypse Calendar Release Party): If a giraffe mated with a zebra, what would the result be? A girebra? Patrick: Zack Braff
Today at Challengers… Samantha has to do all the work while Patrick re-evaluates the way in which he makes night-time decisions. And they’re both watching the Animetal USA video again.
Quantum Entangled Sidekicks
Today at Challengers… talking about post-Fear Itself Bucky and New 52 Nightwing brought up the Quantum Entangled Sidekick theory. You all know about quantum entanglement, right? Phew, okay, cool. Anyway, Bucky and Robin: Multiple people have taken each role. One of each was killed (Bucky Barnes, Jason Todd). One of each came back from the dead (Bucky Barnes, Jason Todd). One of each...
Animetal USA →
Today at Challengers… Thanks to our good friend Tim Wadzinski of DETRITUS fame, we were introduced to possibly the greatest thing either of us has ever heard*… ANIMETAL USA. A KISS-meets-Anime band featuring an all-star heavy metal line-up, in full kabuki-style make-up, signing hair metal songs based on Japanese animation. Right? RIGHT?? SO COOL! Here’s the description from...
Monkeys vs Apes
Today at Challengers… Patrick had an email discussion with everybody’s favorite Chicago-based Wrestler/Podcast Host, The Art of Wrestling’s Colt Cabana. Colt sums up the exchange in one sentence: “Planet of the Monkeys?!?!? I think not.”
