Championship roll call for August 2014

See also

The original plan for Championship Roll Call all those years ago was that it came out on the first Saturday of the month. However in recent months it started showing up later and later in the month. Then I decided to just skip July 2014 once it hit my birthday (July 23) and it hadn’t been posted yet. Here’s hoping to getting things back on track.
