Happy New Year from Your Friends of the Program

Drunk Eli and FOTP remind our readers to take all things in moderation as you ring in the new year this evening because theres a full slate of football games over the next two days and they aren’t near as fun to watch while you are peeling your face off of the floor while fighting down the burning bile that that 2 AM run to Taco Bell has now produced.  The Program will take a break tomorrow but will come roaring back with a live blog of the Cotton Bowl on Saturday, because someone has to be here to interpret what Pat Summerall is saying.

Audio is up. Let me go ahead and gloat for beig absolutely correct on how the Mike Leach scenario would play out.

8 Seconds

We are riding for Lane!

Making all mothers that have sons living in their basement proud, FOTP made a sparkling 8 second debut on ESPN’s SportsNation yesterday.  The site was featured as the SportsNation “Site of the Day”, which will seem like a really prestigeous honor for us unless I find out that today’s honoree is this site (SFW)…then the shine is kinda off the baby, isn’t it?  Either way, many thanks to Chris and the rest of the SportsNation staff for the honor.  After the jump, more shots from yesterday’s show including Colin Cowherd’s first encounter with Arby’s….mmmm roast beef.

The SportsNation Takes Notice

Big site news today.  The World Wide Leader has seen fit to feature Friends of the Program on SportsNation at 4 PM ET on ESPN2 as its “Site of the Day”.  We’ll try and clean ourselves up a bit for our big debut…comb the hair, iron our “Sunday shirt”, and maybe put on a little splash of Aqua Velva in the off chance that Michelle Beadle takes a liking to us.
