Many readers have probably wondered why I haven't been posting articles nearly as often as I had in years past. Here's the reason--The one-year news embargo is officially lifted, and I can officially announce my participation in a project so big and so cool I can hardly describe it with words. I'll let the page at IMDb say it all. Thanks to everyone for all their support throughout this process. It wouldn't have been possible without the loyal fans of ANS!

    0 Comments? This deserves a comment, and I'm not a website commenter. Great job Brian, my first reaction was "I can't believe this" but you've done fantastically well here and I'd expect this to be a big news story today ;-)

    This is awesome! Congratulations! Also, great job on getting John Cusack to play you :D

    Colin Egglesfield as Joe Flacco... Brilliant. Keeping us on our toes!

  8. Brian Johnson says:

    Well done. :)

  9. Ian says:

    Man, that is an ELABORATE page. All the buttons, links, videos. All the text in the subsections.

    I was fooled until I started clicking around.

  10. Brian Burke says:

    It's very easy to do. Just download the site's html and rehost it, replacing some text and graphics. The poster was done as a favor by a pro.

    I did the same thing for my April 1 post a few yrs ago:

  13. James says:

    Hey Brian, a suggestion for the site: add a way to see articles with new comments on them similar to Tango's site. That would save a lot of time and potentially reinvigorate otherwise lost conversations and comments.

  14. X says:

    The best part was when you made the Ravens win the Super Bowl just to convince us this was real. Thanks, Brian!

  15. Mike says:

    Moneyball 2: This time, it's personnel.

  16. Zach says:

    Wow! This is incredible. I've always thought of you as at the forefront of this movement, but I'm glad you'll be representing us when the rest of the world catches on. Best of luck!

    Everything is believable until the Kindle dialogue. Probably did take you a week to do this. Bravo.

    Damn, I texted 9 of my friends like a little kid on Christmas telling them to check it out.

    Can you make a mock draft?

  28. bigmouth says:

    My favorite part is the fake message board with posts like "Is John Cusack right for playing Burke?" lol.

    I also share Anonymous's surprise you aren't more popular given that you definitely possess the gift lol.

  29. tmk says:

    Lmao. I'm imagining a scene where John cusak and Jack Black argue the top 5 analytical tools. Very funny.

  30. Jason Leskiw says:

    You are cold blooded haha. I was mentioning this when I used your stuff as a basis to my draft arguments, and just saw the page wasn't imdb. Well played sir, well played.
