I get onto GMHW's favorites list. This is going to require focus. My favorites: the WLA guys.
this week in unintentionally grim-sounding recruiting headlines
Who are your favorite/least favorite MGoBlog Posters/Commentators?
WolvinLA: Makes me LOL most consistently. Always seems to have a good line up his sleeve.
Chitown Blue: Does a really good job dissecting weak, or just plain retarded arguments. Has a lot of good points. I disagreed with the way he went after Johnny of RBUAS this year, but hey, can't agree on everything.
Huss: Can be at his best when fired up. His Magnus-inspired tirade alone, makes him worth a mention. (Link to said tirade: http://www.mgoblog.com/diaries/omg-we-lost-our-3rd-string-qb?page=1 )
Barking Sphyncter: I don't know if this guy died, got banned, or what... but he has/had talent. Coming directly out of left field, B. Sphyncter came up with some of the most hysterical rants i've seen on the e-bays. (Example:http://www.mgoblog.com/content/unverified-voracity-has-new-favorite-stanford-player )
Magnus: Has the miraculous ability to annoy me every other time he posts. I don't think he's all bad though. I'll always give him props for sticking up for Lloyd, when everyone wanted to take a dump on the man.
Didn't include Brian, Tom VH or JamieMac on here. I feel like they're the main event (for all their good work, research and efforts), while the rest of us are more color commentators or studio correspondents (for lack of a better metaphor).
I get onto GMHW's favorites list. This is going to require focus. My favorites: the WLA guys.
All in due time, my friend.
All in due time.
This won't turn ugly???.....nope it will stay nice and civil.
lg. hog head
1 1/2 tbsp. salt
Dash of red pepper
Dash of black pepper

Clean hog head by removing eyes, ears and brains. Saw into 4 pieces. Put in large pot and boil until tender. Remove meat from broth. Pick out bones and cook onion until done in broth. Dip out onion and run meat and onion through food chopper. Mix in peppers, vinegar and salt, put in cheese cloth, hang, let drip overnight. Slice and enjoy. Refrigerate unused portion.
Favorite : Farnxl Shpxre
Least : brian cook - who does that guy think he is?
I don't see this thread going to good places. That said:
Worst: Any scout/rivals style poster.
you just became my favorite. no homo.
So are you his wife, mother, or grandmother?
If anyone thinks the "Snake Oil" references are bad... you haven't spent any time on the free rivals board. BayAreaWolverine, has referenced the same inside joke every day for the last several years.... Nauseating.
is anyone who posts about Barwis, Wolves, Cage fights on beaches, Pliometrics, Muscle Milk (chocolate), Chewing Gravel or especially any combination of these.
Favorite: CPS - love that guy.
Worst: CPS - hate that guy.
Favorite: Anonymosity, of course (followed distantly by Brian, and then gsimmons85 for his football analysis and jamiemac for his excellent bubble diaries)
Least favorite: no longer here, but Craven M. He's the only one to cause me to look at a picture of a corpse on this site. Thanks.
Favorite Poster: The Stairway to Heaven one with the guy on top of that mountain.
Least Favorite: I had a life size Larry Bird one that I won in a three point contest in grade school. I hated Larry Bird and he was butt-ass ugly to boot.
Bird sans the 'stache is hideous.
Bird plus 'stache is sextacularific
Least favorite: GMHW
I've been meaning to tell you that your avatar pic of Sheridan bears a striking resemblance to Cool Ethan.
I'm rather self-loathing, so I think I'll just go with Tim Waymen as the worst MGoCommenter ever. That guy's a total douchebag.
The Storyteller established a while ago that Gsims holds a special place in my heart for trying to teach us football theory, so props to him wherever he may be. I don't post here that often anymore though because you all suck so much. That and the fact that football season is over.
For the most part I think of most of you as my equal. Peers and not someone to hold above anyone else... Except for the WLA, who I just try not to think of, for fear of bloody horse heads in my bed. But if I must:
My favorite: Well, certainly chrisgocomment's evil twin, crisgocomment.
My least favorite: Don't want to pick fights, but I will say it forever, I don't trust the damn Buckeyes in our camp.
Chunks the Hobo won this contest in 2007, with his description of his Les Miles hangover.
Couldn't find the original, but someone kindly repeated it in a comment thread a little while later:
This is really a simple question. My favorite poster is anyone whom I agree with, while the worst are those morons whom I don't agree with. They're just wasting my time. Idiots!
2nd Favorite: Magnus
3rd Favorite: Brodie
Except not really.
2nd that one
least favorite: bluetell
But... don't you remember you told me you loved me baby?
My favorites are everyone here who can post civilly; that is probably at least 95% of those who post. Whether we agree or not, discussion is great, and dissenting opinions have opened my eyes and actually changed my mind for me a few times here.
My least favorites are those who cannot agree to disagree. Those who feel it is appropriate to belittle those who have the unadulterated nerve to post an opinion that is different than theirs. Those who call anyone with whom they disagree names. Those who think their humor is funny but everyone else's is inappropriate or "not funny." Mostly, though, my least favorite posters are those who forget one important thing:
We are all UM fans here.
As someone who has lived out of state for about ten years now, I feel that if you are a UM fan, you are my brother. I wish everybody felt that way. Since they don't, though, I just hope that those who don't share my affinity for fellow UM fans can at least keep from being mean-spirited when they post.
Luckily, almost everyone here is a lot of fun to read.
In accordance with this, anyone who tells people to fix their subject to make it less confusing is automatically a douche.
Least favorite posters for me are those who call out recruits (Big Will) and say to hell with them for taking LSU money and not coming to UM off of rumors before the recruit has ever made a decision.
Favorite: Big Gay Heart and gsimmons for his insight
the major players in the WLA are great. Sharp wit, good research, sense of humor. And, some of the ebrawls they either start/finish, are awesome. Oh, and thanks to the many people who provide fodder for all our follies.
don't really dislike any posters. I mean, its a freaking blog. Why dislike anyone?
How is everyone's favorite poster not The Knowledge. Seeing a diary from him is like Christmas morning.
Until he revealed his boring identity.... Like finding out there's no Santa.
least favorite Craven Morehead
I don't post often, but someone must love me. My hand is getting tired refreshing this post as I seek affirmation and acknowledgement.
Flat out - your lampoon of "That Darn Wolverine" is the funniest thing I have ever read on this blog - including the pic of the gold-plated toilet. You had the post of the year, period.
I was thinking that, but couldn't remember the poster.
Edit: somehow, this thread slipped by me. Weird.
also Blackhand. Posters who bring the Yiddush should get extra points.
1.) Chunks the Hobo. No one has made me laugh as hard as he did in his few posts back at the end of '07
2.) The WLA guys for their UFR of the 2008 OSU game. I was reading it at work and laughing out loud so much that people kept stopping by my office giving me "what the fuck?" looks. I then tried to explain to them why it was so funny. They didn't go to Michigan. They didn't understand.
1.) Not going to name names. . . but people who attempt to destroy others' posts in an uncivil manner with bold assertions on things that are difficult to quantify. Some of my favorite posters do this sometimes, and it can be frustrating.
How about best avatar. Elno Lewis makes me laugh.
Yo tengo un gato grande en mis pantalones.
Jorge (El Mexicutioner) Morales
From the bottom of my heart, I thank you for the compliment in regards to my avatar.
George (The Mexicutioner) Morales
I can't help but picture a shower of lipids when I see your avatar. Also, long snappers are the unsung heros of football teams.
I have to be someone's least favorite.
He is even-handed, and demands people to back up their opinions with some minimal effort in facts and research.
I also think Chitownblue's effect on this blog is important in what people end up choosing not to post. I really can't imagine what this blog would be like without his tireless efforts.
But dammit, Dex, KRK and Elno Lewis just crack me up, though. If I ever do make it back to Ann Arbor, I want to buy that chimp a drink.
I personally think Big Boutros is a pile of ass, but Tim Waymen comes close. That guy is such a dirtbag.
I liked MallettFumblesSnaps, if I'm thinking of the right guy.
Finally someone has it right.
I sure hope somebody picks me as their BFF, oh... wait a minute... I don't ...care, that's right.
To Blue Durham:
Banana Daquiri, shaken not stirred.
Favorite: MBAGoBlue is a jolly good chap
Least Favorite: Brando Calrissian - only comes around to make it known that he's offended by something (such as WLA's signing day facts about the newest Wolverines), or to tell us we are all bandwagoners for being interested in M BBall this year because we didn't watch every single game during the last 10 years when they were crap like he did.
See, I remember a post where it said that Diaries shouldn't be used to flame other posters. I guess you didn't read that post, huh?
Anyway, I really couldn't care less if you don't like me. I've been posting on this site for a few years, and it's really nothing new. I never post anything as mean-spirited as this, where you just single out one person to talk shit about. But I guess I'm the asshole, right?
