    "Are you one of us?"

    One of us. One of us. One of us. One of us. One of us.

    You apply or you don't. I apply; Now's my chance to take down the Schwab from the inside out. I will trick him -- with food and a Mark Bavaro jersey -- to draw him out in the open. Pretty soon, I will be hanging with Stuart Scott and his one good (not for long) eye.

    I wish they'd do the same to their viewers and have Chris Berman forcibly removed. Even if he goes willingly, I want them to use force! Starting with noogies. Hard noogies.

    I also wish others had not voted to be counted among "one of us." It would have been funnier if 78 people said no and one said yes. Thanks for ruining my vote. Still, it's like the Spartans vs. the Apothecarians, or whomever, in "300."

    I'll keep everyone posted in my secret mission to replace the Schwab.
