MKMOT (May 31, 2012)

Well, I'll be damned. Pardon my Canadian, but fuckin' a, y'all. Good show yesterday. We like when the comments blow up, especially when it's not 90% "Guy Who"s. We like when Shitehawk stops by (within reason, you've got your own balog, pal), we like when cheese_newell shows up after famously declaring that he was done with this balog, we like when generally interesting discussions are had. Speaking for myself, I have always wanted you guys to drive the content of the site, all I try to do is write lazy self-indulgent blurbs with some good (or horrible) clips and provide you the forum. I hope you continue to use it.

With that, it's time to open 'er up. Now powwow below some guys from Glasgow.

  1. Guys - today's the day that I enter MBA's list of top commenters!

    Everything's going to be GOLD!

  2. Just wanted everyone to know that I checked in on scotchnaut last night before I went out for the evening, and he was safe and sound asleep. I trust that he got the good night's sleep that he deserved.

    1. Wait, are you sure he was actually asleep, and not just commenting in DUAN?

    2. Oh, look who's back at his old blog now that it's cool again!

  3. Also, special thanks to CJ for the ambitious roundup effort last night. You have my full admiration. I simply could not have done that. I'm not...strong balogger.

    Ok, was my NJ Devils joke hilarious? No. But I thought it was a goofy enough start to a comedy chain. I remember when those happened. Sorry, EMS, and anyone else who I offended.

    1. You are vastly overestimating the commentariat's knowledge of foot themed New Jersey Devils names.

    2. It was goofy and had pyramid potential, I just think that the "pyramid signal" doesn't always go off unless it's blatant from the formatting. Which is usually just the PUNchline alone.

      One theory, anyway.

  5. Sean, check your email -- CaptainInsensible just made another dialogue joke.

    1. Ha! Oh man it's funny 'cause you're butthurt that it wasn't you!

      Delete
    2. I giggled at Insensible's joke and Ray's comment, but now I see that I was wrong to do that. I guess we're all a little butthurt.

      Delete
    3. Oh, settle down. It was a joke. If anyone is butthurt, it's scotchnaut after last night.

      And at least have the common courtesy to spell my name correctly.

    4. Yesss, give me your anonymous bitching and backstabbing. Give me your unpleasantly accurate observations about the faults of others. Give me the stuff we all think and would never say under our own name. It feeds me and makes me whole.

  6. Can anyone tell me WTF happened to DirkToberFest?
    That dude used to really bring it.

    1. Did something happen to him recently? I do seem to recall him going off on a rant a few weeks ago, but don't remember seeing him recently.

    2. Consumed by his own bitterness?

      I miss that guy.

      Well, he did leave this last week. Looks like he has some sort of bone to pick with Barry. But yes, he was definitely in the top tier whenever it was that he was a regular. Pre-MBA, I think.

  7. Why did I do it? Because "FUCK IT!" That's why.

    1. We also would have accepted, "Because I'm a petty, passive-aggressive shitbat and I wanted some attention for something other than my punishingly and universally shitty comments."

  8. Hey there friends-

    You may have noticed I've deleted some comments. Seems like we're crossing the line from harmless grab-assing to actual commenter bashing. If you truly have a problem with a commenter, then PM him, put your name on it or friggin' relax already because we're just talking about comments on a sports-related web site.

    1. NERD!!!

      Just kidding. What he says, kind of. You all drive the content, no bones about it, so I have tried to be really hands off since the relaunch. But don't go overboard. CJ is much more respectable and less unhinged than me. And I will never attempt to undermine his decisions. It is his balog as much as it is mine, which is less than IMG's. No matter what he says.

      Have fun, we want you to keep coming around, but keep it reasonable and at least semi-constructive. Unless it's about Stinky McBritches, because fuck that guy.

      Delete
    2. Hey there again friends-

      It's been brought to my attention that it may be hypocritical to leave Anon's reply to Stinky McBritches up.

      I have absolutely no issues with that particular reply, because McBritches is an obvious troll/dick. I really do love Deadspin, and have no sympathy for someone who is actively trying to turn it into a shithole.

      Delete
    3. I still see all of the comments.

      And please don't delete the ones aimed at me. I like to keep my friends close, and my enemies where they are, in BronzeHammer’s basement.

    4. Is that the the end of the CJ/Marv jerkoff sesssion for now?

    5. Easy there Carly Simon. Not everything is about you.

    6. @Guy Who

      I believe the deposit on your face answers that question for you.

      /SEE, THIS is the kind of balog I fiercely protect! :(

      Delete
    7. Oh god, someone mentioned BronzeHammer again. Next time, give me a heads up and I'll put a towel down, alright?

    8. Stinky McBritchesMay 31, 2012 at 3:29 PM

      @CJ: You got it wrong. Not the dick part. The part about me "actively" trying to turn it into a shithole. I'm passively turning it into one by enabling those who actively do it.

      Honestly, my only regret was approving Richard Head. That clown was such a terrible commenter that he managed to get banned before lauren_jo. I know bad commenting because I can smell my own kind.

      No hard feelings. I forgive all of you for your silly hatred. Those feelings are your own personal demons.

    9. Congrats, Britches. You're about as destructive as a Photoshop thread. You'll always be remembered for that, um, thing you did one time, I guess.

      Delete
  9. So as not to spread too much hate (sorry Dirktober, I just want to see your best return, fella).

    I just want to say that DJ Jazzy Jeff Weaver is a fantastic and totally underrated commenter. Brings a level of silliness that just dominates.

    1. I completely agree with this. He's wonderful.

  10. I've been a fan ever since that one comment he made. I don't remember it exactly, but it was right under mine, and it was something to the effect of "+1."

    Nah, for realz, he's good. I'm not sure he's underrated, though. I think we're all fans. He just isn't around all the time.

  11. One commenter that doesn’t get enough love around these parts is RMJ=H. I know that people say he comments too frequently, he’s a poor man’s Steve U, he’s an even poorer man’s Raysism, he can’t spell very well, he promotes bad comments, he only posts GIFs, his name makes no fucking sense, he very rarely says anything funny, he’s frightening to look at in person, his +1s are worth 10 cents on the dollar, and he used to date Lbabe – which, in fairness, are all legitimate criticisms – but I think the guy can really bring it.

  12. Interesting... in the Lee Corso post, there are a couple of new commenters with burner account avatars. What's going on? Is powwow upon us!? Why weren't we informed?! IT'S PANIC TIME RUN FOR YOUR LIVES BEFORE IT EATS YOU AAAAAAAAAAAA!

    Eh, not you, Gamboa. You just stay where you are.

    If Gawker.com has taught me anything, it's that absolutely no good will come of powwow. I need someone to kick me in the groin anytime I decide reading the comments to a Drew post over there is a good idea.

    1. You asshole. Of course I had to read the comments on that soda post after this comment. I can't even think of the right word that expresses my disgust with those idiots.

      Your Lane Bryant comment was gold, though.

      Delete
    2. I'm still just banking on the fact that the comments were horrible at Gawker before powwow. I don't notice them being appreciably worse. Just consistently atrocious.

      Just went down to the comments of the JC Penney ad that was posted this morning; the #1 featured discussion has an interesting set of responses. One guy listed all 150 Pokemon with a short description of how to find each and every one of them. He then copy-pasted it four times before clicking submit. Did it a few more times in separate comments.

  14. @IMG

    I stepped all over your joke tonight. I should say I'm sorry, but one of my New Years resolutions was that I'm not allowed to admit fault, even if said fault was a really bad follow-up to your pristine comment.
