From GFOP @Samuel_Gordon who writes: The holiest of holy priests I’m sure.
We were already salivating for the return of Game Of Thrones then these arrived via GFOP Hunter Volpe who writes “I was very bored and made some sigils for you guys.”
Reason no. 4,251 why #GFOPs are the best: Chris Allgood sent Rog this divine creation. The world’s first Nigel Scarf. And with the snows battering the Crap Part of Soho Rog can confirm it is practical as well as beautiful. Chris commissioned the scarf from Etsy star Linda Hagan. He calls it “a big bottomed small of football garb.” Chris, we are blown away by you… Please drop us an email so with your address so we can thank you properly. Dominate.
Update: Linda Hagan can be found here on Etsy
From GFOP @Jason_Nichols, who writes “Me full kit wanking with my grandma circa ‘84. Spurs kit was nice that year, except the short shorts.”
In honor of Mrs. Patmore’s guest appearance on the pod, we challenged you to select a “Downstairs at Downton XI.” The responses flowed in – a lot of Wilsheres, Baines’ and Flanagans. The winner is Jen Jabaily-Blackburn who gets a copy of EA Sports FIFA 14 and a Men In Blazers Blazer patch for her XI, of which she admits “I spent more time doing this than I’ll admit.”
We are going to spend the weekend fielding this team on FIFA’s FUT feature.
No nonsense. Sturdy. Brad Guzan = American English for “Beryl Patmore”.
Best all-round candidate. (Also an outstanding candidate for keys or bass in the Premier League band because he looks like literally every British rocksmith from the 90s.)
Thomas. He’s the Premier League’s Thomas.
Looks 100% upstairs at first glance, but I see Jimmy. Or the other guy I always think is Jimmy.
I think he knows a lot about scheming and hair maintenance. 100% O’Brien.
I can see him getting involved in a lot of madcap capers. Is there something haplessly William about him?
Frequently found talking back to figures of authority. There’s something Bransony going on here.
I saw this photo, and it just screamed “Future Molesley!”
I’m thinking together they combine to make a Mrs. Hughes?
Because when I see him, I know I am staring into the face of the uncanny offspring of Carson and Bates.
Men In Blazers Live: A Night in Conversation with Mr. Barry Hearn. We are honored and elated to announce news of our next live show. A special on February 12, 2014 at Le Poisson Rouge, New York City.
All GFOPs are invited to spend a night hearing lessons about life from Barry Hearn — legendary sports promoter, founder of Matchroom Sport, and chairman of the mighty Leyton Orient Football Club (America’s Team). “Size The Day” and celebrate the co-mingling of Valentine’s Day and Abraham Lincoln’s birthday in the best possible way: a night of tall tales, football truths, and ripping yarns. Dress Code: Dapper meets Full Kit Wanker. Courage.

GFOP’s made their nominations for our First Annual Biped of the Year Contest in the thousands. Was that because there were so many outstanding performances last year or that EA Sports had provided 10 copies of a Limited Edition Men In Blazers FIFA 14 game for the winners?
The Grand Winner is Seth Elliott Meyer, a GFOP living in Berlin, Germany who chose the selective goal scoring ability of John Obi Mikel when his Chelsea goal tally went to an emphatic ONE, and re-wrote Longfellow’s psalm of life and its sage last line “Learn to labor and to wait as "An Ode to Obi." An epic poem, which ended:
Lives of great men all remind us
We can in fact put the ball in the net,
And, departing, leave behind us
Kneeprints that the corner of the pitch gets;
Kneeprints, that perhaps Mikel,
Sailing o’er life’s solemn main,
A forlorn and shipwrecked brother,
Seeing, shall take heart again.
Let us, then, be up and doing,
With a heart for any fate;
Still achieving, still pursuing,
Learn to labor and to wait.
The nine other GFOP winners were:
Jered Schneider who re-wrote “Romeo, Romeo” to nominate Romelu Lukaku
James Coleman for nominating Aaron Ramsey “for proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that Piers Morgan knows nothing about football.”
Andrew Sullivan from Anchorage, Alaska who nominated Pope Francis and enabling the Pontiff to add our Biped Award to Time Magazine’s and The Advocate’s Person of The Year for a historic treble. “He’s winning trophies in 2013 at a Bayern Munich rate.”
Dani Kohn who nominated Rebecca Lowe’s hairdresser
Mike Tomei who nominated Sepp Blatter “the man who will hand the World Cup Trophy to Clint Dempsey on July 12, 2014”
Paul Prins who nominated “The Denver groundsman during the Snow Game”
James Coleman who wrote in Valryian to nominate Jon Miller President, Programming NBC Sports and NBC Sports Network
Cody Eden who nominated GFOP Kyle Beckerman and re-wrote Pearl Jam’s “Betterman” to bolster his case
Christopher F. Orman for choosing the late, great Gerry Baker
There is something about this that just makes us feel so very happy.
A team of dedicated #GFOPs have maintained a MiB wiki for the past year. It turned one a couple of days ago and they still claim to have clung onto their sanity. We are indebted to them, as are all of the new GFOPs who are not quite sure who Nigel or Anne Hathaway is. This is a cloud of the most clicked on terms.
EA Sports have handcrafted a limited edition of FIFA 14 with us – your Men In Blazers — on the cover. Just ten (10!) copies exist in the world. We are going to offer them all to GFOPs who nominate their 2013 Person of the year for our First Annual Biped of the Year Contest.
On this week’s pod, Davo chose Luis Suarez, Rog made the case for Bob Bradley. We will award the FIFA 14s to the GFOPs who make their selection and back it up in the most thoughtful, articulate, and creative way.
Send your entries to MeninBlazers AT Gmail Dot Com. We will announce the winners at the beginning of January.
