CGB Meme Invitational - More Second Round Bak Bak Regional Action

Here is the information on more Second Round Bak Bak Regional matchups.  Read the information behind the fold and then vote in the polls.  Here is the bracket so you can see the Sweet 16 coming together.

First up we have the match up between the #3 seed and the #6 seed.  Dorrells Mustache (3) takes on Pain Train (6).  This should be a tight matchup.  Both memes are beloved by all.  I lean towards the Mustache, but I'm also ironic, so it evens out.


Dorrells Mustache took on Existential Pics, which was a great matchup.  I love Existential Pics, but one has to move on and it was Dorrells Mustache.

Pain Train sacked the hell out of Meme Deleted By Marshawnthusiast.  Not much to see there.



Karl Dorrell's Mustache (3)

UCLA has had some rough luck with injuries in the past.  And in 2008, it was REALLY rough.  Their 2 QBs got injured in spring practice on the same day.  Then, watching UCLA v. Tennessee at the start of the season, half their team died in that game.

That's why I boldly predicted on that day:  "By the time Cal plays UCLA, the UCLA QB is Karl Dorrell in fake mustache."

That wasn't true, but Karl Dorrell in a fake mustache coulnd't have played much worse than Dark Kraftica Lead Singer Kevin Craft did against Cal in 2008.  Note pornstache won the "Which mustache will Karl Dorrell wear?" poll with 30% of the vote. 

And thanks to Zoo News, we have some of these for a very special Inside The Numbers UCLA:






Pain Train (6)

The Pain Train did not come from either CGB; in fact, for those of us too young to remember (ahem, rollonubears!), the Pain Train first appeared in a 2003 Super Bowl commercial featuring Terry Tate, Office Linebacker:


Clearly that commercial left an impression on our future Golden Ziger, Zack Follett.  

"Terry Tate -- number 56, the Office Linebacker, the Pain Train -- was my hero from watching those commercials," Follett said. "I try to emulate him when I'm out there.

"When I was in junior high my buddy Marcus Moore and I went to a sporting goods store that sold a Reebok Terry Tate jersey. I bought one immediately. We watched all of his You Tube clips. He was bringing the Pain Train and he had his Woo-woo sound. I used to do it in high school, I used to blow the kind of stuck with me a little bit."

So vote for the Pain Train.  After all, you don't want this to happen to you, do you?

Next up, we have a personal favorite of mine, the #2 v. #7.  Yes, thats right, Dumpster Muffin (2) makes her appearance, taking on the one, the only, rec'd (7).  Dumpster Muffin had a bye into this round.


Rec'd took on How I Met Your Mother, a embarrasingly painful show if there ever was one.  Praise be to Bak Bak, Rec'd won BIGTIME!


Dumpster Muffin (2)

Saint Dumpster Muffin was an inspiration to us everywhere.  She took time out of her busy life of doing, apparently, absolutely nothing to spend months, if not a year or so, to live in a tree.  And not just ANY tree, but that sacred ancient Indian burial ground next to the stadium.  Where they buried Pocahontas, Geronimo, and Kal Penn.

Dumpster Muffin was one of the tree-sitters.  And what a tree sitter she was!  I met her here and interviewed her. 

Here she is communing with the nature:



Here she is concerned about some murders on the Kent State campus:



And here she is in her God Pod:



I can't even really fully explain all that is Saint Dumpster Muffin in this space.  Here she is complaining about stuff:

Dumpster Muffin came to represent everything wrong with the movement.  She along with Ayr and Runnie Dub were some of the more well-known tree-sitters and received much ire from us.  It turns out her real name is Amanda Tierney and she had some outstanding warrants in Santa Cruz County.  Wonder what she is up to now.

Rec'd (7) via Ragnarok

One of the neat features of SBN is the 'rec' button, which allows users to recommend posts and comments that they find especially insightful, on-th-money, or generally awesome.  A couple of these recommendations, and the comment in question is highlighted in green and given a 'thumbs up', telling any reader who stops by that the comment in question in awesome, and is a must-read.

For whatever reason, however, the 'rec' button isn't always enough for some people.  They need a more explicit way of expressing their appreciation.  On some message boards, you might see '+1', or Rishi's irritating 'This', but around here, it's common practice to 'rec' something, then respond to the comment with "Rec'd".

CBKWit was the first to bring "Rec'd" to the CGB populace last September, but slowly, others began picking up on it.  Rocksanddirt, Avinash, and royrules22 were all early adopters, and by month's end, 18 instances of "rec'd" could be found.  As of this writing, 266 instances have been recorded, and more appear every week.

Some, however, were not satisfied with "rec'd".  They needed to explain why they had recommended the comment.  These reasons ranged from standard praise -- "Rec'd for an excellent situational analysis" -- to absurd -- "rec'd for the lucious creepy factor".  Here are some of my favorites:

"rec'd for pushing a joke beyond the logical extreme." - Rocksanddirt

"Rec'd for not lacking in irrational and subjective hatred." - Spazzy McGee



"Rec'd for having a baby." - Rishi

"hooray! rec'd for san diego super chargers song reference!" - kittwin
