A to Z Post - T by Matthew

This post is brought to you by one of the April A to Z Challenge co-hosts: Matthew MacNish.

I think next year we're going to do these posts a day late, so that we can consider featuring the best posts we read the day before.

Anyway, for now I'll just be mentioning some awesome things that start with T, followed by one blog post from a participant I know you guys will love.

Titans - they're really tall.

Tartan - slainte!

Theater - movies and plays.

Tetris - from Russia with fun!

Toll Booth - phantom ones, not real ones.

Trains - choo, choo!

The Triple Option - it's an offense in football, run by Georgia Tech.

And now, let me point you to a blogger whose posts for the A to Z Challenge I've been enjoying very much. Joe Lunievicz has been going with a Greek theme, and his post for today, T is for Tartaras, is a great one.

  4. Oh! I obviously haven't been exploring enough, I didn't know all you creators of A-Zness were doing this - in fact I only found your blogs here at the top yesterday! Clearly been spending too much time replying to comments, clicking on the list, writing my blog, illustrating my blog and writing poems for my blog...

    I really enjoyed the link blog.

  9. Having grown up watching the Sooners and Cornhuskers battle every year, "triple option right" and "triple option left" will never leave my vocabulary.

  10. I like the idea of a recap from the previous day. I just know that I'm missing some great stuff...no matter how hard I try to visit as many as possible.

  11. In the late 80s I was addicted to Tetris. So it was all a communist plot?

  17. Big fan of The Phantom Tollbooth! Did you hear them talk about that book on the TV show "New Girl"? The guy shortens words, and called it, "PhantomT".

  24. Tetris! Yah!

    Also, I read the triple option as an offense to football, until I read it again realized you were talking about a football move.

  29. I see we're still on "T". I did a brief "U", and went on to "V".

    "V" is for A Tap Dancing Vagina on Main Street Arts
