And The Envelope Please…Adding To The HOF

Should TSG hand-out Blue Sweatpants to each inductee into the TSG Comment HOF?

TSG is pleased to announce the induction of the following reader comments into the TSG Comment Hall of Fame.

To the Jimmy Conrad Wing for funny and creative commentary go the following:

To the Bill Jeffrey Wing for astute technical commentary go the following:

The readers and commentors help make TSG what it is. Matthew and I say, “thank you” and keep those comments coming.

With each successive round of inductions in to the HOF, the bar is raised for future inductees. Specifically, funny comments will need to be of the laugh-out-loud variety (and creative missives and “conversations” will have to be exceptional to receive consideration). Technical analysis will have to be unique and thorough. And, importantly, all will have to be passionate.

Congratulations to the new inductees!

    Congratulations….Mark has advised me that I will shortly be out of a job….GREAT!

    Good work — some funny and smart stuff in there.


  2. Do we get to pen an acceptance speech?

      Absolutely, Invite friends over this weekend. Read the post aloud. Make speech. Post to YouTube.

    now it’d be really funny if someone’s comment from this post made it into the HOF… that’s creativity for ya.

      Rob, can you see me right now? I’m yawning….we’re raising the bar and as a veteran of the HOF there are no nutrasweet Jim Rice courtesy comments going in the HOF.

      It’s going to get harder and more difficult to get into the Comment HOF — there is a rumor going around that Tuesday is no hiring ghost writers….you didn’t hear it from me….

      Mark’s right by the way — if you YouTube an acceptance speech we’ll upload it and link to it from the HOF section. :>

      fyi….”Jim Rice” modifier above = last ballow HOF’er and I’m a Yankee Baseball fan. We have got to fix the USMNT nickname!


      • Gentleman,

        Thanks for the gong! Finally, I can stand head and shoulders with my knighted friends. Officially, what additional letters should I now be putting after my name on my business cards and resume?

  4. I think during Nick’s YouTube acceptance speech I’m going to cut in a take the mic away.

    “You’re a great commenter on The Shin Guardian, Nick, but i like tuesday’s comment was definitely the best comment EVER.”
