Meme Madness: Capital Regional First Round

New, 17 comments

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 4 v. 5 matchup in the Capital Regional.

No. 4 Golden Watermelon Balls of Fury vs No. 5 Unholy Alliance

vs

Meme 8 Conf. (Football)

Big Meme Conf. (Misc.)

Need proof of Chase Daniel's place in the annals of Missouri athletic history?

You could go to the Heisman ceremony. You could go to the win over Kansas in Armageddon at Arrowhead in 2007. You could go to the record books that bear his name.

Or.... you could notice that Daniel has THREE nicknames entered in Meme Madness.

Golden Watermelon Balls of Fury was the brainchild of the former MizzouRobot, now known as RIdiculous Matt. Hopefully, I don't have to explain the details of what the name implies.

With the GWBOF meme, it's going to be a battle of prominence bias vs. recency bias. Will Daniel's name carry the meme, or does it slip further into the RMN archives with each passing day?

All blogs are supposed to be confrontational, angry, virulent and vulgar toward each other, right?

No one told that to us and Bring On The Cats. The amount of endearment between is potentially awkward to say the least, and borderline obscene to call it a spade. The operating agreement between BOTC and RMN has led to what has become commonly referred to as "The Unholy Alliance."

For those better suited to a visual aid, BOTC's Panjandrum perhaps best illustrated the connection once in a Live Thread:

Yeah... it's like that. And we're ashamed to admit it. But the enemy's enemy is a friend, right?
