Have Your Favorite Rival Berated By A Professional

Tonight marks the beginning of the World Series between the Texas Rangers and the San Francisco Giants. And like all great American traditions, a little trash talking between friends makes things more interesting.

To get under the skin of your favorite sports fanatic, try RivalGrams, a service that allows you have a professional berate your friends’ sports team via phone and email.

Start by filling in all the necessary information, including your friend’s name, phone number, email, their favorite team and your favorite team (you can pick any team and any sport, including college, NFL, NBA, MLB and even NASCAR).

From there, you can choose to schedule a recorded fight song to your friend (it costs $1.25), an email blast, or you can go all out with a live taunt session in which your friend’s team will be berated mercilessly (starting at $2.25).

For $10, you can even schedule a live call every day for 20 days leading up to the big game.

And when it comes time to apologize try Flatter Me, a service that offers praiseworthy phone calls to your coworkers, friends and loved ones.

Flatter Me offers everything from simple employee motivation, get well and apology calls to a kid friendly call from “Santa.” (For the shy there’s even an “I have a crush on you” option).

Let the crank calling begin.
