MKM Open Thread (April 9, 2012)

Welcome to your MKM Blog open thread for April 9, 2012, the day the Boston Red Sox were mathematically eliminated from postseason eligibility. 

Hey, programming note: I'll be out of the country for the next week, so I'm hoping your pal CJ will pick up the slack and take care of this place while I'm gone.  I may check in but I may not, so you're all in his or her capable hand or hands.  Behave yourselves and tell some funny jokes on Deadspin.

Here's a Youtube clip that sums up how I feel about being away from you.

  1. Hi all!

    Quick programming note from your pal CJ. I may or may not be posting threads in IMG's absence, but if I do, you can be damn sure they won't feature piece of shit songs like this one.

    xoxoxo!

    - CJ

  5. Hey guys!

    I just thought of a great new angle for a comedy bit. Work with me here...

    OK, the popular sports network ESPN is headquartered in Connecticut. To be specific, in a city called Bristol.

    The UN-popular, former conservative politician, Sarah Palin, has a daughter. AND HER NAME IS BRISTOL!!1!1!

    Oh, if only I could work this into a comment. COTY, you elusive temptress...

    1. I don't get it. Or anything else, for that matter.

  6. So while I was frantically turning SportsNation off, I noticed Beadle looking pretty frighteningly orange. Both Cowherd and her normal makeup person taking the day off or is that how she looks now? Anyone here actually watch that show?

    Anonymous masses I'm looking at you.

    1. I don't care if she turns purple. I'll still love her.

  7. Sorry for getting so off topic on that Pete Nice memorabilia article. For some reason I thought that pointing out how the author has previously admitted to fraud in the exact context of which he writes -- and how DS had previously made this exact caveat in this exact context -- was somehow relevant, but it appears I was mistaken.

    1. It's like pointing out that Nate Jackson was a journeyman 4th string NFL receiver, and admitted positionist, while Deadspin treats him as someone who somehow can relate the private thoughts of the majority of NFL stars and their coaches.

      I'm looking forward to Bernie Madoff's financial investment advice posts on Gawker.com.

    2. It's your own fault when MC Serch shows up at your house. You're the one that ordered Dominoes.

      Fuck, I'm funny.

    3. It was off-topic because the topic was "Deadspin editors who can dish it out but can't take it".

    4. Moving that thread was grade-A bullshit.

      Delete
    5. Agreed, it absolutely should have stayed.

      Delete
    6. Put me down for bullshit on that. Shouldn't have been moved.

    7. Thanks, guys. I honestly was not posting that as a dig against the editors, all of whom I respect. There are plenty of other writers who well-deservedly get our shit -- I'm thinking about Donaghy, or whatever that ref's name was -- and so I figured this guy was fair game for the same.

      If they seriously plan on featuring him in the future, that is a huge mistake. He is a joke. Might as well have Dykstra give stock advice -- it's no worse than that.

    8. Not only was it bullshit to move it was something that should been disclosed in the fucking post to begin with.

      I'm not sure anyone gives a shit about the comments but us, people certainty at least appear to pay attention to them based on the shit we get for them, so moving it looks weak, thin skinned and pretty ridiculous.

      I still can't believe they didn't address who he was anywhere in the post.

    9. Ok, check out verb2111 again. Maybe he does deserve and approval. The best part of this is, DUANBowe can't see it (obviously).

    10. It's "an" approval, dumb ass.
