(‘What’s my all-time favorite war? That’s your question? Come on, man. Franco-Prussian, obviously. No contest.’)
Remember a few weeks ago when we made a bet with Shane Carwin involving the University of Montana/Western State football game? The deal was, if Western won we had to write an article about all the ways Carwin is better than us (for example, there’s this), but if they lost he had to give us an exclusive interview. Well, Western didn’t just lose. They got blown out 38-0. Now it’s time for us to collect.
But rather than simply pestering Carwin with the usual questions about his preparation for Brock Lesnar and his alma mater’s complete inability to convert on third down, we decided to open the floor to you, our readers, and see what you’d like to ask the big man. Before submitting your question for Carwin in the comments below, you might want to start by asking yourself:
1) Would I still ask him this if we were alone in a windowless room together?
2) Does anyone other than me actually care about the answer to this question?
3) Did I accidentally leave my caps lock button on? For the last several months?
Once you’ve done that, you’re ready to put a question to the Engineer. Go ‘head, knock yourself out. We’ll look them over and choose the ones we like best for inclusion in the interview. Check back later in the week to see if your question made the cut, as well as to find out exactly what Carwin thinks of your query. Think of this as your chance to atone for failing to come up with a nickname that he liked.
