Magic Number is 37
Choke Thread

The topic for today:
Of the myriad possible ways for the A's to choke in September, describe the scenario that produces the helpless gasping for air that begs the late-arriving Heimlich.

I'll go first:
Larry Davis, Oakland's head trainer, washes his digusting hair for the first time this season and none of the players recognize him, leading to numerous bangs and bruises going untreated, weakening the squad and contributing to an 0-8 slide sometime before the tree leaves start turning the color of an Angel jersey.

And also, it is almost September and time to check out the growing SBNation family of Football Blogs:

NFC East
Blogging the Boys (Cowboys)
Hogs Haven (Redskins)

NFC North
Windy City Gridiron (Bears)
Pride Of Detroit (Lions)
Daily Norseman (Vikings)

NFC West
Field Gulls (Seahawks)

AFC East
Pats Pulpit (Patriots)

AFC North
Cincy Jungle (Bengals)
Dawgs By Nature (Browns)
Behind the Steel Curtain (Steelers)

AFC South
Stampede Blue (Colts)
Big Cat Country (Jaguars)

AFC West
Arrowhead Pride (Chiefs)
Mile High Report (Broncos)

I guess you can make this a How will Brett Favre do in his final season thread if you are more inclined, seeing as he has more of a chance to something with his green and gold than Soon-to-Choakland...
