GMYH Hall of Fame Nominations

After my "I Hate Purdue" post, I got several comments, including one from "Begrudgingly Boilermaker," who suggested that I include the post in my "GMYH Classic" section on the sidebar. The GMYH Classic posts are back-dated posts about subjects/events from before I started GMYH, so "Classic" relates to the fact that those are things I would have posted had I had a blog before August 27, 2005.

However, given that I have had this abomination I call a blog for over 2 years now and given that I occasionally write things that a small (and disturbed) fraction of the readers find funny, I think it's time to establish a GMYH Hall of Fame. With all the crap that I post, new visitors to GMYH should be given some sort of guidance as to the cream of the crop.

Thus, every couple months, I will ask you guys to nominate a post for the GMYH Hall of Fame. Then we will put it up for a vote, and the top vote getter will be enshrined. There are no rules about how old the post must be, and for the first "class," I'll take the top 3 vote getters.

So with that, post a comment below about what posts you think I should consider. I'll then take the top 5 of those -- the inaugural GMYHHOF ballot -- and put up a poll, and then the top 3 vote getters will be enshrined in the inaugural class. This is truly a watershed moment in the history of GMYH, blogging, writing in general, self-aggrandizement, and time.

AREOLA. Number One. It wins. End of discussion.

Amazing, I was thinking the same thing. I still feel shame for veiwing what I viewed the next morning. And yet I have so much pride in the photos I took the night before. Areola, hands down.

Feel free to nominate more than one post at a time.

It sickens me, but I agree with Kyla...Areola definitely needs to be included, and shouldn't even be subject to a vote.

Areola, hands down. I also enjoyed the biographies for the 1000s, although I can't pinpoint one that I like more than others, so I will nominate all of them.

Off the top of my head, the Areola entry was the first thought. It made me wish I had been there, while making me feel like I was. Outstanding.

Also, I think the rules for rushing the court in college basketball should be required reading for anyone who might ever attend a game.

Maybe not Hall of Fame worthy, but I sure do miss reading your O.C. recaps. Damn you, Fox. Damn you straight to hell.

If anyone has heard the lobster claw hand story in person they would not argue that this is in fact the #1 all time story.
