MKM Open Thread (Mar 22, 2012)

Welcome to your MKM Blog open thread for March 22, 2012, the day you wondered why Alex Smith gets $24 million when his boss tried to replace him, and all you got was a restraining order from Bruce Springsteen's lawyer.

Morning everyone.  Quite a day yesterday, wasn't it?  Tebow, Sean Payton, me finally cutting back on my Nyquil dose. Good stuff all around.

Let's bring the funny today.  Here's a Youtube clip to get you started.

    1. No, I think everyone can see your comment.

    2. Just out of curiosity, how many private messages to yourself do you send a day just so you can see the little number by your name pop up?

    3. I've never cleared that number -- I'm just going to keep it going until I flip it like it's Donkey Kong. I'll let you know when I've got a kill screen coming up.

    4. Do you think Bonobos' pink pants would sponsor a pink of the day post?

  2. I've got to admit, I've given a very brief thought to going nuclear when I'm completely done with Deadspin and just approving a shitload of pink commenters. Sort of like how you think about pushing that annoying asshole on his cellphone down onto the subway tracks.

    1. I distinctly remember SeeYouSuckersLater saying that when he decided he was done with Deadspin, he had something he wanted to post (possibly an image) that would be an immediate banning and something you can never unsee. I like the guy, and I don't want to see him banned, but there's always been a small part of me that hopes I get to see it if it happens.

    2. Your penis wants to see that happen?

  5. There is no sound quite like the "thonk" your ring finger makes when you glance up-court and jam the shit out of it on a basketball.

    1. You're right. It's quite a "dead" sound. However, the sound your knee makes when you jump-stop and every ligament goes "pop," that's worse.

      Delete
    2. Ahhh...I don't doubt that at all. I've heard the less horrible pop while coming down one on someone's foot and feeling my ankle go sideways but have been lucky enough to avoid any knee blowouts.

  6. Ok, I almost fell off the couch laughing at this in the helicopter thread. Is it as funny as I think it is?

    1. Man. I can't tell if that's horrible or amazing. Good enough to promote for sure.

    2. I actually had the same reaction as SV8 to that. I have no idea.

    1. I think it's strange you're spending so much time on this and a dick move to disclose people's personal information here.
