The Hell with the Weblog Awards. : We were snubbed. They didn't nominate us for best sports blog. I guess they didn't get a copy of our new guidelines either.

Deadspin is poo. At least in terms of their NHL coverage. I'd think SpoFi would have to win Best Sports Community, if such such a web award existed. Sure, other blogs do the blog thing better, but here it is about discussion, not in-jokes and flashy graphics. [cue in-jokes, flashy graphics] [or just flashing in-jokes]

Well, we'll just have to initiate our own awards ceremony, and become self-appointed World Champion. Like the various boxing 'organisations'. By the way, anyone know how to get laundered cash out of Vegas? This could be profitable.

Bah. No mention of Free Darko negates any discussion of best sports blog awards. Moving on. Deadspin, while at times spectacularly amusing, has become home to an incredible amount of assholes. I am getting a little surprised at the amount of overt racism and anti-gay drivel that is spewed there. It used to be piecemeal, but someone opened the floodgates recently. And they don't discuss sports on that website. It's more of a sports-culture at large deal. SpoFi doesn't have to win any awards to keep me coming back.... Several times in a day.

I nominate SpoFi for the "Most Entries That Had me ROFLMAO" award. The above thread has been one of them. The occupants of the next "cube" are beginning to peer over the wall at me. It's OK, they just think I'm senile. Old age is a wonderful excuse for anything.

From what I saw, their hall of fame was eerily similar to the banned topic list here. Agree about the sports culture thing... Same with Kissing Suzy Kolber. Very funny, but not exactly sports. (Or I should say, not exactly sports the way I prefer my sports.) Both are worth an occasional visit and are usually good for a chuckle... But I get withdrawals if I don't check spofi regularly.

5 years for me in February. /gives an appreciative, respectful bow My one-year anniversary was last week. I celebrated by sitting in my living room with a nice scotchyscotchscotch and pontificating on the pageantry of baseball, and Derek Jeter in particular. Pretty much like what I do on SportsFilter, but annoying to far fewer people. I rounded out the evening by making a really snarky, off-topic comment to my cat. Then I deadbolted the door, peeked out the peephole to make sure Maddux wasn't lurking, and went to bed. The mylar balloon from the event is going on e-bay if anyone is interested. I wrote the username of every SpoFi member on it in the signature style I imagined they would use. I'll let you guess whose "i" I dotted with a little heart. p.s. Weblog awards are for sellouts. We're officially still on the grunge tip.

posted by BullpenPro at 02:38 PM on December 12

We're officially still on the grunge tip. Whoah, too weird. I need to do laundry in a bad way, so I had to go digging for a clean t-shirt this morning. I found my circa-1989 Nirvana t-shirt. It's the "2 virgins" shirt. I've never seen another one like it. I got it at the Blind Pig in Ann Arbor during the Nirvana/Steel Pole Bathtub/Flaming Lips show. Cobain couldn't play his guitar and sing at the same time. At least not that night anyway.

posted by DrJohnEvans at 09:43 PM on December 13

said the 4-digit guy Sure. Go ahead. Rag on the four digit numbers. We're easy. No, we are not well-trained in filters Meta and otherwise. Yeah, we came over from yahoo, trained at ESPN message boards, with our AP story posts,our all-caps,our excessive bold, our misspellings, poor grammar and inane banter. We are the harbingers of cliches, filled with disdain for Barry Bonds, T.O., women in a men's game AND the people who have disdain for them. We are the unwashed masses. But you must know today, my friend, that we are the glue that holds this site... nay, this country, together. Cue whistling of Battle Hymn of the Republic 1776 -- does that year ring a bell? It was a four digit year. Was it three digits when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor. Hell, no. And it ain't three digits now. The year Don Budge was born, the year of Byron Nelson, of Mary Lou Retton, of Ellis/Quarry, of Brian Boitano, of the Dream Team (the good ones... not the ones that lost), of Average Joes over Globo Gym, the year Al Michaels asked "Who the hell is Oswald the Lucky Rabbit?" and the year Joe Namath kissed Suzy Kolber right on the lips... four digits. You and I were born in a four digit year, and by god, we are going to die in one. We love every one of Barbaro's four long digits -- even the one that's broken and needs to grow a hoof or something. Mordecai "Three Finger" Brown actually had four digits. Every athlete who ever proclaimed themselves "Number 1" stuck four digits into their palms... and so did every athlete who ever told a drunken fan to go screw. We are mutts. YYM's a mutt. Look, his nose is cold. But there is no dog who is more faithful than the mutt. We are here to make sure that every thread that runs off on a tangent regarding political correctness goes at least 100 comments. We are here to make sure that when you wake up in the middle of the night and turn on your computer, there are still 3 new comments on the front page. We are here every day, making ridiculous accusations and fundamentally flawed observations, entertaining you when you can no longer entertain yourselves, and holding up the First Amendment, which holds dear our right to say anything we want to say anywhere we want with no repurcussions whatsoever by anybody for any reason, with lots of punctuation or none whatsoever, as God intended. Now, you can say what you will about me. But when you speak ill of the "4-digit guy," you're not just putting him down, you are spitting on the sacred document that houses those very precious First Amendment rights. And I will not sit here and listen to you bad mouth the Declaration of Independence! People!!

I tried to still my keyboard's righteous indignation against his hate crimes against history and good sense, but I could not stand by, no matter how I tried. Do not let his appeals to base emotion sway you! My dear comrades, I beg of you, do not let the truthiness of his words blind you to the history he would deny. Do we not all know of the horrible mayhem and dissension caused by the 14K revolution on Metafilter? Have we forgotten the lessons of history? First he singles out the three digits. He blames us for the economic problems that we have not caused. He blames us for all the four digit's problems. Once he has whipped up hysteria, will we not all be sequestered away? Locked in threads against our will endlessly debating Michelle Wie and Barry Bonds? Once we are gone, who will be next? The Double Digits? The Singletons? Who next will face the wrath of his hysteria? No one I say! No one! If we stand united against these hysterical heresies we can prevail! Not one of us shall feel the wrath of unjust persecution, as long as we do not give in to the pull of BullpenPro's rhetoric! Stand with me Brothers and Sisters! Stand against Tyranny!
