Meme Madness: Capital Regional First Round

In the vortex of large-scale athletic emptiness until football season begins again, we're passing the days here at Rock M Nation with Meme Madness, a 32-entry, bracket style blowout to determine the best theme/inside joke RMN has to offer. The full bracket can be found here.

Today, we feature the 1 v. 8 matchup in the Capital Regional.

No. 1 Mr. Coffee vs No. 8 The Boy's boxing analogies

vs

Big USA Conf. (Basketball)

Meme Coast Conf. (User-specific)

Remember 12 months ago when Mizzou basketball was in shambles, Mike Anderson wasn't sure if he'd have a job in mid-2009, and Zaire Taylor was an overlooked transfer from Delaware? You don't need a refresher on where we stand now.

Zaire Taylor's Alec Baldwin-esque propensity for closing in big situations resulted in the highly exalted Mr. Coffee nickname.

Everything you need to know about this meme was described in The Boy's "This Week in Zaire Taylor" post.

As far as the meme is concerned, the question is whether or not Taylor's ability to close extends to his nickname. Will Mr. Coffee "always be closing" in Meme Madness?

I don't know how or why it started, but during this past basketball season, The Boy transformed himself from not only RMN's own personal Bill James but also into RMN's own Howard Lederman.

Ever been watching a Missouri basketball game and wondered aloud, "Is there any way I can somehow relate this game to a profession that once employed Mike Tyson?" And aside from the mandatory "Stephon Hannah has a glass jaw" joke, The Boy was out to prove the answer was yes.

As the games went on, the demand for the 10-9s and 10-8s went on, as well as boxing matches with 17 knockdowns.

If someone wants to earn major bonus points on RMN, they ought to go back and compile a list of Mizzou games and The Boy's final scorecard.
