MKMOT (August 28, 2012)

Oh, crud. I've got to do this again?

So, slow day on the balog yesterday. You guys know that Labor Day is next Monday, right? Or was yesterday some stupid holiday I haven't heard of, like Canadian Valentine's Day?

Let's try and spice it up. Here's your incentive: for every balog comment today, IMG will pay you ten thousand dollars, OR you get to choose what's behind Door Number Two. Decisions, amirite?

While you are busy mulling your options over, here's some pleasant music to listen to.

  1. If someone gave me decent-enough odds-- say, 100-1, or even 50-1-- I'd put down a Benjamin or two on today's WYTS being the one entry that doesn't garner any borderline-illiterate, fulminant dissenting comments.

    1. UPDATE: It's been three hours-plus, and there's one mild protest that the Jets may have a "decent season," and one mild Drew slam for not being vitriolic enough.

    2. I guess this makes you the wealthiest Jets fan who has ever lived.

  2. JACK SOCK!!

    HE WENT TO MY HIGH SCHOOL!! Like a decade after I did, but still. He's joins other such illustrious allumni as the kid with the snot bubble from Little Giants, and the gay dude from The Real World Miami. Also, his name is Jack Sock.

    7. This guy: Bethlehem man beaten, robbed over unusual bet during poker game.
      Shortly before this he got arrested for DUI, drugs and having a pistol with a filed off S/N. His buddy from high school is smarter, but only marginally so. To be fair, I'm not sure either actually graduated.

    1. I can't figure out this new Kinja deal. I intended to give a +1 to IMG's joke, but I think I instead gave a +1 to All Over But The Sharting's +1.

      So, +1.

      Delete
    2. I had pretty much stopped using the blueTonic fix. Now with the latest change, that's all I use. It's just way too confusing to see all the replies and click back and forth.

      Delete
    3. Even though you both +1'ed Sharting, I really appreciate the kind words. I promise that IMG Promotions entire staff shares in my appreciation, and we promise to keep delivering the high quality entertainment you've come to expect from us.

  4. Guy With a QuestionAugust 28, 2012 at 1:44 PM

    Dumb question on a slow day. I'm assuming that the picking on Raysism thing is just a joke, but I don't think I've ever gotten it. Is it an inside joke? What is the background there? Do some people really not like him? I know he reads this so he can chime in too if he'd like.

    1. Probably not my place to say but I will anyway. He's from Florida. And he runs. And he talks about running like it's good for you or something. And he never misses a chance to curbstomp MMA fans. And...oh wait, I like that last part. You people get off Raysism's lawn!

      'Tis my opinion that having the old guard of Deadspin rag on you is one of the highest compliments you'll ever receive.

    2. He wears jorts. What else do you need to know?

      Delete
    3. I don't want to speak for the others, but I think that deep down, they really, really hate me.

      Delete
    4. I don't hate you Ray. I like your anti-MMA stance and respect that you're a fan of the Rays. Like Pirates and Royals fans, I know you're the real deal. Nobody would lie about something that could could keep them a virgin.

      Delete
    5. It's not so much you, Ray, as it is everything you say, do, and stand for. And everything with a personal connection to you, as well.

      But not you-as-in-physical-embodiment-of-you. That I like. Especially the hole parts.

      Delete
    6. Well if you're going to compare Ray to Hitler, I'd say that's a little harsh. To his credit, Hitler never wore those stupid short shorts, and he didn't like banging old broads.
