Let's just get the elephant in the room out of the way up front: yes, about two weeks ago, Bevraj of Choice was named Deadspin Commenter of the Year. But, you have to understand, Bev wound up getting the COTY for the same reason that Christian Ponder wound up being a first-round draft pick: because none of the top choices were available. You see, 2011 was an interesting year for Deadspin commenters. Following the Gawker account hack in late 2010 and the -- charitably -- Netflix-esque redesign rollout in early 2011, the Deadspin commenting bench was shallower than Kim Kardashian wearing a Louis Vuitton bikini in a drained kiddie pool at the Palms Las Vegas. If you were a Deadspin commenter and had any redeeming qualities whatsoever, you basically took off the first half of 2011. The absence of talent left the commenting landscape wide open for Bev to haplessly plug along, picking up +1s from the IPCs and Phintastics of the world. Then, when MBA gloriously arrived on the scene, and those with actual skill returned to the site in droves, Bevraj faded anonymously into the background while hot commodities like DJ Jazzy Jeff Weaver and shuttledik soaked up the attention he had traditionally received (a quick review of the positive mentions on MBA establishes that, during the time people were actually trying to be funny, Bev had significantly fewer than either me or MKM -- but, of course, MKM trumps everyone).
After cheese-mac killed MBA, and the quality of commenting on the site dropped off again, Bev showed up again, like the proverbial turtle taking the lead in a race in which all the rabbits have long since quit running because they're off at a party at the Playboy mansion or something. Enjoy the exercise, bro!
So, Bev, I raise my glass to you. Enjoy the COTY, buddy. And I hear the Vikings are looking for a quarterback, if you're interested. They probably still have some of Favre's old equipment that would fit you perfectly.
MKM > Bevraj of Choice.
