Rob Stone joins the MIBNT
The beautiful Rob Stone makes the case for the inclusion of his chicken legs in MiB National Team on Monday’s Sirius XM show (4/22).
Nothing says Happy Friday like popping by Embassy Row to get my hands on a @MeninBlazers patch then hitting up Houston Hall for a beer. (at Houston Hall)
Further proof they do exist…
Positive gets the Draw Something treatment.
On this week’s pod we partnered with Savile Rogue, manufacturers of the world’s finest cashmere football scarves, to find America’s Next Top Soccer Fan.
What Were You Thinking, Ray Hudson?
With Davo away in Austin, Rog was joined by Mighty Ray Hudson on SiriusXMFC. Ray took time to review many of his favorite calls “Behind The Music”-Style in a segment called “What were you thinking, Ray Hudson?”
We were blown away by the response the Men In Blazers Inaugural America’s Next Top Pie Baker contest, sponsored by Premier League pie maestros, Pukka Pies. Even more than the appointment of Jurgen Klinsmann, and Gus Johnson’s broadcasting apprenticeship, the thousands of pieces of Pie Porn we received suggest the United States is poised to become a true soccer nation.
The three grand prize winners will be announced later today. Rise and Pie, America. Rise and Pie.
AMERICA’S NEXT TOP PIE BAKER: It’s a bake-off. We want GFOPs to share in our insatiable appetite for pies. Therefore, the good folks at Pukka Pies have offered a case of 12 pies and a bag of gear to that GFOP who’s able to best document the experience of baking their own traditional English pie. Send your photos, videos and stories about the process and the end results to email@example.com — basically we want your pie porn. Michael and Roger will then pick the winner on a future pod. Godspeed.
We at Men in Blazers are very proud to featured in Howler Magazine’s 20 Reasons Why It’s a Great Time to Be a Soccer Fan in America. Just please don’t tell Lord Grantland William Simmons, he’s a vengeful patriarch. And make sure to subscribe to America’s finest rag devoted to the game we love.
As mentioned in this week’s Grantland podcast, Michael and Roger reminisce about the popular British comic strip Billy’s Boots. Have they uncovered the secret to RvP’s form?

Men in Blazers Movember. Lalas, you think that is a mustache. This is a mustache.
It was a terribly difficult task to winnow the hundreds of #FIFAFace entries for the FIFA 13 MiB VIP Kit down to even these ten finalists. In the end though, Steve Joh’s ingenuity takes home the grand prize. He writes, “With the Brendan Rodgers’ portrait ever watchful over my shoulder, I endeavor to not be one of the names in his envelopes.” Brilliant.
Eric Schrauben and Tyler Norton, second and third place respectively, will be able to weather the loss with their own copy of FIFA 13, courtesy our good friends at EA Sports.
