Congratulations Holy Dog Water, you are the
Ladies Hot Blogger King.
I’m not completely sure of all the details and since the comments are approaching 500 I’m assuming I will never read it all and catch up. So, excuse me if I’m repeating the obvious. But alas, I have to put my 2.8 cents worth in.
When the Ladies mentioned “cheating” I assumed (and still do) they were trying to let us little cry babies know that they weren’t going to baby sit us if and when someone did cheat. And by cheating, I’m sure they were thinking of people voting multiple times by hand with a different IP Address maybe using a simple anonymizer or such. Or maybe using the ten servers at work to vote ten times.
You know, the type of cheating in sports that doesn’t end the entire game. Holding, off-sides, illegal motion, not setting the f**king stadium on fire!!!! Oh well, you live and learn Ladies. And the lesson here? No matter how old we guys get, we will still be little bitches and do whatever it takes to win… even if it means destroying the game itself. Ask George Steinbrenner, he’ll tell you (haha, that’s right, the yankees suck!).
Oh well, I guess this means I have to actually do work the rest of the week. Thanks Ladies. If I could vote for you Ladies, I’d do it like 1.8 million times.
In my first email, the subject line said it all, “Can we just declare HDW the winner? His second paragraph seals it.”
The reactions were unanimous.
Andrea - His submission made me cry with laughter and he’s hot. He looks tall. Hopefully climb-him-like-a-tree tall.
Holly – Any man who can pose with arms folded against a lamppost with a STRAIGHT FACE and still win my undying devotion is an unusual specimen, indeed.
SA – HDW is my new favorite person. A God among men. Especially with that smile.
GordonShumway – Good thing he doesn’t work at Home Depot, because the stud finders would go craaaazy.
Texas Gal – Forget poetry and flowers and playing the guitar and sappy shit–give me a guy who can knock a mofo out.
Clare – Holy Dog Water? More like holy crap, that man has good hair. It’s thick and lustrous and I wanna run my fingers through it.
We love all 87 of the rest of you, but this had to end eventually. Better now before the real tears began to fall.
A big “thank you” to everyone who sent emails supporting us, (especially when we had to add back some entries for math’s sake – which as T. Kyle King from Dawg Sports found in the bracketology – were all going to lose again), and to all the kind comments when the voting started to turn sour and for making the bracket into something fun again. Who knew we all had so many quiche recipes?
Personally, I would also like to thank David at Polldaddy.com for all of his help with this bracket. For the record, he has been nothing but helpful and even took the time to email us after reading all 500+ posts in the last thread to make sure we understood that they were in no way upset for what we did to their service once the voting bots hit. We’re coming up on football season, so if any of you plan on running any polls on your site about how much the Big East sucks, please be sure to make PollDaddy your first choice. (UPDATE – Woo hoo! They got our basket and dug right in! How cute is that! One is even wearing a Chieftans shirt! Can you get more Irish and cute?!?!)
HDW, GordonShumway is making up a special “Ladies HBB” winner seal just for your site, and as soon as we get your size and color preference, a “Hot Blogger” Neighboorhoodie will be sent your way.
Let’s never, ever do this again.
UPDATE – Be sure to check out the winner’s victory speech!
