Toxic Avenger cause that is hard work right there. Just look at the majestic beauty of that post.

Choosing between TA! and Gnome may be the most difficult decision of my life.

Damn you all for making me vote for JayRedd.

But that was some funny ****.

I also agree on Jay's post. I had a nice LOL at work on that one. And I was thinking the same thing.

My disgust for JayRedd is only trumped by my distaste for Marquis Daniels.

Sophmore year of college, upon learning that my yahoo auto-draft selected Marquis Daniels in the 7th round: "****"

The Gnome thing is just too funny to me for some reason.

Agreed.

Sorry TA!

that was a great post by JR but I have to give dues to TA for putting the time and effort in creating stats for TCT.

It's really hard to go against TA's uber-analysis. I would have liked to see more basketball-related posts nominated. Again, just like the thread award, I think this should be
split in two awards, on topic and off.

I strongly agree with this.

Or, we could just rename the website "Counting Digest."

nonsense! we need to embrace and become O.N.E.
what you are asking is to divide the union into two groups - that is devil's talk! :-p

I go to the ****ing thread for the humor, but I think Rexnom and Anthem are correct, there really should be more basketball related stuff and maybe an off topic award for this if the counting thread is involved.

Counting Digest, maybe it needs to be spun off onto its on board like unPD? lol

Counting Digest is awesome hahahaha.

I would be fine with splitting it into two sets of Awards:

Counting Awards and

Other Awards

Only seems fair. Maybe in the Counting thread we will vote for our own awards....nah becoming O.N.E. took too long.

Since I've never read any post in the counting thread, it's between Redd and RWB.

I went with Gnome because of the dedication he showed. The Pacer related ones were weak, even though JR's gave me a chuckle, that was not near his A game stuff.

I have a handful of changes in mind for the awards next year, and splitting Thread/Post of the year from 2 to 4 awards is on the list (Pacer and Off Topic each).

I was one of the people that nom'd it. I mean talk about a homerun, that was instant "mark for award nom later" stuff. I enjoy trashing on Redd, but sometimes his stuff is so good that I can't overcome my sense of respect to tell him what a reference-using loser and un-American counter codler he is.

This was one of those times.


As for TA's post, I'm the nerdliest stat geek around here and that post nearly made me sick. Of course it might have been the blatent marketing dept version of stats, ie the crap pie charts with more show than real guts. Or it might have been how pathetic the whole project is. You are counting how many times you've counted...somewhere Magic:The Gathering nerds are laughing at you.

JR's one-liner was just too good, as good as the counter selections were.
