Who is this imposter Sportsfilter? Do we have to exact some Punch to the Crotch with Awesomeness justice on this fool?

Dammit to hell, how did we miss out on best blog in the gay/lesbian/bisexual/transgendered community?! A fucking outrage, I say.

I find the Bloggies sort of a farce. Also, I hate Perez Hilton. Not that it's here nor there, I just needed to say that.

Who is this imposter Sportsfilter? The locker room thread is gone for now, but here's the ask metafilter thread. It never caught on and there was a goodbye post for a while when msn decided to close shop, but even that's gone now. The other awards have more specific categories. Blog, group blog, community blog, etc. All sports blogs are lumped together. We're a community blog and different than any of the finalists (sportsfrog has a community, but on the side of the main site). This is the first year they've even had a sports category, so I guess it's a start. Like Brady getting over a playoff loss with a walk of shame, we'll be ok.

Do we have to exact some Punch to the Crotch with Awesomeness justice on this fool? DUDE! "Punch to the Crotch with AWESOMENESS" is ™ 2007 lilnemo. Aw fuck it, I'm a dork of the people. CROTCHPUNCH for everyone!

Hey! We were making fun of Joe Morgan and getting visited by bereaved family members way before Deadspin ever made fun of Stephen A. Smith or got visited by Barbaro well-wishers/shut-ins/fanfic/slash/letter-writers. How was SpoFi not even nominated? This is a travishamockery!! WHO SHAT THE BED ON THIS ONE?! WE WUZ ROBBED!

So, is there a ceremony, like the Oscars? Could we show up and get drunk and disorderly and bum-rush whatever suckass so-called sports blog gets the award?

MY EYES!!!! THEY BUUUURRRRRNNNNNNN!!!! After looking at that bloggies site, we know they'll never win a Web design award.

Meh. Fuck 'em. Or crotchpunch with spikes. Whatever floats your boat. I wouldn't want to win anyway. The sheer number of potential wank-noobs that might show up because of such a ludicrous thing is enough to make me hope we stay UG.

I would like to know why we are giving the smallest modicum of consideration to a pool of nominators that thinks Cute Overload is one of the five best American blogs. Puppies and emoticons. My pancreas is going into shock.

Not only were we shut out, but I headbutted Deadspin and was tossed from the game. I couldn't bear to look at the trophy on my way out.

You didn't see how many times Perez Hilton was nominated, huh BPP? If you want to be enraged, check that shit out. He forcibly outs celebrities who were in the closet (and gets nominated for Best GLBT!), and draws splooge marks and cocaine trails on celebrity faces. At least kittens are cute and puppies are rascally.

He forcibly outs celebrities who were in the closet... Not cool. ...and draws splooge marks and cocaine trails on celebrity faces. Quite funny.

I would say, not cool, not funny, and since you pointed me in that direction and I now have gotten some of that on me, you can expect a dry cleaning bill. And maybe a letter from my lawyer about those emotional damages.
