Some favorites and a few duds from today's commenting.
Favorites, in no particular order:
All Over But The Sharting had a killer day, checking in first with this hilarious glimpse inside the Knicks' playbook in the Derrick Rose Alley-Oop post. Later, his dissolving Tiger Woods comparison was good for a laugh, in the Tiger Woods Sex-Life post. And finally, this contribution to the MMA post was his funniest of the day.
SavetoFavorites cracked me up with a very silly contribution to the NFL Rules Changes post. What can I say, I'm a sucker for silliness.
Also in the MMA post, Steve U's dig at Arkansas delivered a delicious payoff.
Total Fucking Duds
Unstarred commenter Derrick Rose ACT Score 1 thought his name would be sufficient for a laugh in a Derrick Rose post. Boy was he wrong.
Unstarred commenter shuttledik continued to stink up the joint, first leaving an inexplicable one-word comment in the Derrick Rose Alley-Oop post, and later dropping just as lazy and worthless a comment in the Dave McKenna Update post. Truly, this guy sucks. Where the hell is the ninja, for crying out loud?
Unstarred commenter Paolo.Lex double-posted (courtesy of Nibbles) some piece-of-crap commentary on the toughness of NBA players. Back to ESPN.com, dummy.
Unstarred commenter wizard_alien paid a hefty price for leaving a lazy, meaningless Blake Griffin reference in the Chinese Dunk Contest post, drawing ridicule from a selection of grumpy commenters. It was a terrible comment.
In the same post, unstarred commenter cobra.la.la.la.la.la.la stunk out the joint with a bogus rent-a-joke. He's not usually a terrible commenter, he can do better than this crap.
What in God's name was Jobu81 thinking with this flaccid piece of shit in the Tiger Woods Sex-Life post? That's a conspicuously dreadful comment from a starred commenter.
And finally, unstarred commenter sigma982 tempted me many times today, finally breaking through with this lame-brained dud in the Australian Bros post, made worse by whatever the hell that is after the ellipses.
Lots of activity on Tuesday's posts, which was nice to see. Unfortunately, there were quite a lot of horrid comments, but that's just how it goes. Especially dismal comments, like that of wizard_alien, actually can have some value, in that they both cause a stir among the commenters and give more established commenters an opportunity to give direct and indirect feedback to newer ones.
