Weekend Challenge: Sports Galore

So this week, in celebration of my first National Flag Football Championships (I am mildly terrified). We are going to take a wander down the long list of sports team names.

I have a list here of the names of sports teams: if you comment here with how many you would like then I will send you the team name and the sport. Eg. Indianapolis Colts, American Football. Now you can use the place, animal/suffix, sport or team name to inspire you.

If you great anything and post it (or a link) back here by the end of Monday (GMT) then I will make you a reward.

So enjoy :)

Comment Fic Friday

Yep, you'd be right if you thought it's been a while since there was a Comment Fic post! I will admit to getting out of the habit, but I am determined to make these entries more often from here on in!

no title

So let's kick things off with this prompt:

"Oh no, not again!"

Whether your favourite character is wondering why their offsider is late for work once more, or perhaps their old car has broken down yet again, or any number of any other repetition-type possibilities that could befall someone you like to write, it's time to roll out a quick ficlet around the size you could post in a comment (700-800 words-ish). And if it ends up a bit longer? No problem, just link it in a comment here rather than posting the whole thing.

Go on, you know you want to! ;-)
