For Mr. Hodgman
NERDS VS. JOCKTACULAR
> AS I HAVE COYLY/BADLY HINTED on Twitter, there is something that I want to tell you about.
> ON SEPTEMBER 28, AT 4PM in the afternoon, I will be putting on a show entitled GOOD EVENING, MY NAME IS JOHN HODGMAN, a kind of talk and variety program in which together we explore a certain theme through conversation, music, contests of brain and muscle, and an actual game of football.
> THE THEME OF THIS PARTICULAR PROGRAM is “JOCKS vs. NERDS,” the culture war of our time, and a subject that you know I have been thinking about for some time now, and also talking about with the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.
> IN THIS CASE, the “NERD” shall be played by me, John Hodgman, and the “JOCK” shall be played by the New York Jet, NICK MANGOLD, as I confront all of my deepest fears (humiliation/being punched/Nick Mangold) and attempted to learn from him the virtues of jock culture and the rules of football.
> APPROPRIATELY, this shall all take place in the MAGNIFICENTLY HUGE ATHLETIC PALACE known as the 168th Street Armory/National Track and Field Hall of Fame in Washington Heights, which is a beautiful space to look at and run around in, but somewhat difficult to light, and that is why we will be meeting at 4PM. (YOU MUST BE ABLE TO ARRIVE AT 3PM)
