The Herb Voland Memorial Tournament: Gorilla Trash

Building off Mike Etzkorn's throwaway comment in the Illinois Side Open thread, I'm going to announce a guerrilla trash event. This might get played at Illinois. It might just get read online or given to people to read on car rides home. Whatever. It's a guerrilla tournament.

Send the packets to me (e-mail address in profile) by Friday, August 10 (any time).

These are tossup-only.

The distribution is based on what is classified as "popular culture" and "sports" in the NAQT categories.

22 tossups:

1 Advertising
1 Comics
1 Fashion
1 Film
1 Food and Drink
1 Game (atypical sports, board games, not truly video games)
1 Internet Life
3 Miscellaneous/Other (cross distro or any category)
1 Musicals
1 Personalities (i.e. celebrity gossip and the like)
1 Popular Music--Country, Rap, or Rock
1 Popular Music--anything besides above three genres
1 Radio (define this however you want)
1 Sports--Basketball
1 Sports--Baseball
1 Sports--Football
2 Sports--Other (any other sport)
1 Television
1 Video Games

Please shoot for interesting and accessible and don't just throw out dumb tossups on minor sports or food. This is guerrilla, so if you feel more comfortable doing a "food" tossup that is really more of a film tossup, or a "radio" tossup that is really more of a sports tossup, go ahead. I'd rather have that than seeing a minor regional disc jockey tossed up. All tossups can be cross-distributional if that works best for you.

I'll at the very least contribute 1 packet to this (distribution likely to only be vaguely followed)

The best part of gorilla tournaments is ignoring the distribution.

There is an okay chance I'll have a packet for this.

There are 4 packets for this (5 counting Mike Etzkorn's which I don't have). If the authors (or whoever) want to read them in Discord next week, that might be mild fun. Otherwise, I'll just post them.
