My Holiday Wishes for the Walkoff Walk Commenters

When Kris and I started this blog almost a year ago, we wanted to be able to write about baseball in an intelligent and funny manner while entertaining a bunch of folks and starting a community of sorts. Well, one out of two ain't bad. We've got the best commenters in the entire sportsblogosphere; we didn't quite expect to have such a committed following of Real Live Funny People sharing their jokes and recipes with us!

So in the holiday spirit, I'd like to give out fake gifts to (almost) everyone who commented during the year. Bear with me as I struggle to remember your favorite teams or whatnot. Some of you wear your fandom on your foreheads like a tattoo but others are quite even-minded and rational when talking baseball. In no particular order, our holiday wishes to our commenters:

Happy Holidays to all our commenters, readers, and contributors. We're looking forward to a 2009 season full of Actual Baseball Analysis, wacky videos and hopefully a ton of shrimp babies.

Wow. And here we thought you had sold out. Kidding, WoW has been awesome this year. Keep it up in year 2, Rob, Kris, Lloyd, and Darren!

Please, sir, may I have more gruel?

Oh thanks, it was exactly what I wanted!

Looking forward to another fantastic year, of somethings something y'all

The Colonel: to get on the 2009 list

Thanks Rob, but TV has taught me that anything short of going to Jared is a shitty gift.

Moe appreciates the gesture. He's not getting much use out of his Brady Quinn jersey.

Thanks for a great year guys, look forward to another good one in 2009, the year both the Tribe and the Cavs bring home a championship.

j/k guys, I LOVE WoW, even if it does causes a burning sensation while urinating.

But...but I didn't get you guys anything.

Wait--you guys are fans of big market teams. So you're kind of like my dad who bought himself a BluRay player and every conceivable movie he ever wanted three weeks before Christmas, thereby ensuring that he gets exactly what he wants and making everyone else's shopping trips a pain in the ass.

So, like, here's some peace on earth and good will to men, or something.

I COMMENT ON THIS WEB BOARD ALL THE TIME AND FOR SUM REASON YOU SNUB ME THAT MAKES NO SENSE YOU GUYS CAN GO SCRATCH. BESIDES I AM A PRO BALL PLAYER AND I CAN GET ANYTHING I WANT WHAT WOULD A WEBSITE GUY GIVE ME. I HIT 300 THIS YEAR SO MY LIFE IS COMPLETE ANYWAY UNTIL COACH SAYS LACE 'EM UP IN THE SPRING.

YAH I DINT GET ANYTHING EITER WHAT AM I BLACK? OI'M NOT IM WHITE.

YOU GUYS CAN TAKE A HIEK ANYWAY VOTE YES ON PROP 8

The new wife really wants a baby, I was kind of on the fence until I realized that I could dress it up in various shell fish costumes and take pictures, so my wife thanks WoW for my desire to become a father.

Oh and she also thanks WoW for the cakies recipe

Jesus, Rob, mine's almost as depressing as my actual holidays will be. Here's looking forward to two empty things: the apartment and whiskey bottles!

Seriously, keep up the fantastic work, all you Wow bastard-children.

I was hoping to find a 30+ HR player in my stocking.
Or even a 20+ HR hitter.

Thanks to the fine editors for this site, and to the other dummies who comment here for making baseball more bear-able.
Happy Holidays y'all!!!1!!

What a comfort this website is to me. So much fun.

I hoist a cocktail-covered shrimp in your honor, WoW.

Great, now I'm pissed at Joe Morgan all over again. Thanks for stirring up the bad memories, fellas.

Oh, and thanks for the consistant amusement. Happy Christmas.

I'm a newish and infrequent commenter who happened to get about exactly what he wanted for Christmas: World Series-champion Jimmy Rollins introducing Joe Biden.

Hereby wishing that WoW happens across a treasure trove of babies in more crustacean outfits.

I will file that tidbit away for 2009, rarebit. Happy Holidays!

I'll take Kaat in the HOF any way he can get in. Also I was hoping for a free WoW t-shirt.

Merry Christmas Rob, CTC, and the rest of you knuckle heads.

/go Yankees

Alright, enough self-congratulation, WHAT ABOUT MARK TEXEIRA??!?111??/?

All I want for Christmas is Rocco in baby blue and to write for this magazine.

All the best to all the WoWies.

Happy Holidays Wowies.

Thankfully i think Toby has left the Sox to pursue his interests in a shaving foam pie factory in Washington state.

I hope there's a Phillies Parade to liveglog in '09, too. Maybe next year it will be funny.

It's been a great '08, here's to a fine '09. Thanks WoW.
