For various reasons, quality submissions from the Something Awful Forum Goons might never make it to the front page. For example, intrepid talents might try valiantly to salvage doomed themes, or a consistently high-quality thread might be too esoteric to attract enough contributors, or something great might just get buried under all the other greatness. This doesn't happen very often, which is why the last Photoshop Phriday Variety Pack ran back in 2005. But there's material to use, and college basketball to watch, so voilà -- the best of the rest!

Our baseball nation turns its yawning eyes to Goons.
