Someone help John McEnroe set up a blog already

Posted by Ryan Jerz on Tuesday January 15, 2008.

It’s another installment of the Reactionary Hurl, the series that makes useless comments about things you may or may not care one lick about. You are encouraged implored to take part by commenting, sending us tips, and spreading the word. I’d normally go all T.O. on a day like today and “love me some me!“ Instead, I’ve decided to keep it mostly local. I also just finished watching the entire series of Arrested Development (The wikis dominate IMDb, by the way). Holy crap that’s a funny show. I have no idea why any of this has to do with the topics at hand, like some guy who gives back, caucus lawsuits, supposed ties, John SmackEnroe, and dumb Republicans. Arrested Development—if you didn’t know, now you do.

  • To the disappointment of several, I didn’t win. Some of you may have the vitality to remember when I announced my candidacy for Citizen of the Year. I’d love to sit here and tell you that the guy who won deserved it, but come on! We’ll have to start earlier next year. (Living Refuge)
  • Dead heats bring out the ‘real Nevadans’. It should be obvious that only actual Nevadans are commenting on this post due to the fact that it’s pretty much entirely Edwards people spamming the holy hell out of the place. Nope, no emailed or blogged call to action there! (RGJ)
  • Maria Sharapova is a tennis superstarMaria Sharapova: A Russian tennis player that most certainly doesn’t have mob connections.The lawsuit thing in Vegas is finally explained by someone who chooses to use his brain. Best explanation of why that I’ve seen on a blog so far. And it might be one of my favorite posts that wasn’t about me on Dullard Mush ever. Just a bit of opinion sneaked in there, and that takes it to a better place than a straight post would have been. Nice work. (Dullard Mush)
  • The internet rules. If not for it, I wouldn’t have found the Freakonomics guys linking to an article on possibly fixed tennis matches which also included a link to one of their past posts on John McEnroe, who happens to be one of the best analysts in sports—all of them. He’s honest, was a great player, and is very good at explaining things. And if he thinks the Russian Mob is fixing matches, I believe it too. (Freakonomics)
  • This might explain the lack of calls to me. If the Republicans can’t figure out where people are supposed to go for their caucus, I suppose it’s possible that the phone spammers they hire get to work and prep to call Republicans all over but are greeted with empty spaces where the phone numbers are supposed to be. (Ann On Everything)

And just to be clear, please read the initial Reactionary Hurl so you can understand the context.
