Welcome to your MKM Blog open thread for February 11, 2012, the day Sean took a vacation and totally forgot that he left Tim at Deadspin all by himself! 


Chat, minions.

  1. I'm not familiar with that movie, so it must not be about sports. Either that or I was too busy getting my PhD to have noticed it.

  2. Wasn't Burke the one who wrote the headline "This Woman Totally Loves the 'Cocks" because a very nice looking girl was cheering for South Carolina at a football game? That shit would get a commenter banned, but he's an editor? That's embarrassing.

      I thought his stupid Super Bowl Tweets post yesterday was really, really great.

    2. Hey remember that time Burke wrote something interesting? Me neither.

    Anybody want to discuss sports blog comments in-depth for the next six hours?

    1. Sure. Remember when Burke was a terrible commenter with the handle "bubbaprog?" He had insightful stuff like this!

  4. Is Pesci really that short or is he bowing to Stern?

    Look at this gem (helpfully pasted below the link, for those of you fortunate enough to not be able to see pink comments):

  6. Oh fuck me.

    This guy has got to be trolling us, right? This can't be real.

      This leads me to believe LordComment is Metta World Peace.

    2. I just rushed over here to post this. That's spectacular. "Lord Comment"? Probably a troll, though.

      It certainly made me laugh.
      How does his comment show up without any sign of an approval? Looks like his first comment in his profile. Is it a facebook or twitter thing?

      Delete
    4. That's a good question - I don't know anything about Facebook logins. I would think the same pink comment/promotion stuff would apply. He left another one

      It's clearly a joke, and a pretty funny one, I think. I'll reserve judgement until I see what ANGRY STARRED COMMENTER has to say about it though, naturally.

    5. He has to be trolling. He just blessed us with this one too.

      The approval thing is weird though.

      Delete
    6. Aww, hell.

      I'd be lying if I said I haven't laughed at both of these comments too.

    1. ATTA BOY! SINCE YOU'RE WASTED, SEND ME THE PASSWORD. FUCK THIS CO-EDITOR THING YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT. I'LL CLEAN THIS PLACE UP.

  8. YOU RANG? I WOULDN'T CALL LORD COMMENT IA TROLL, HIS SHITSHOW/SATIRE/SCHTICK IS FUNNIER THAN 61.9 PERCENT OF THE PEOPLE WHO ARE TO TRYING MAKE LEGITIMATE JOKES. THAT MUST STING, BUT IT'S TRUE. IS BURKE GOING TO DEFEND HIMSELF TO THOSE PRICKS UP TOP? DIDN'T THINK SO.
