Meme Madness: Boulevard 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 4 v. 5 matchup in the Boulevard Regional.

No. 4 Party Starter vs No. 5 UribeAuction's Simpsons references


Meme USA Conf. (Basketball)

Meme Coast Conf. (User-specific)

Hopefully I'm not breaking any news to you when I tell you that Conan O'Brian's "Vroom Vroom Party Starter" commercial may have been the best commercial of early 2009, right alongside the Heineken beer closet commercial.

Rock M Nation needed Vroom Vroom Party Starter as a meme, and the community abided.

During the Kansas-Oklahoma basketball game in Norman, SleepyFloyd and I set about discussing the commercial and set forth to find an RMN connection.

Enter Laurence Bowers' above the rim antics. The high-flying freshman certainly knew how to start parties at Mizzou Arena this year with dunks bordering on f***diculous.

Since that fateful evening, the meme has taken off in such an amazing vertical fashion that it actually does justice to its namesake.

If there are two things you can guarantee from UribeAuction, they are as follows:

  1. Gratuitous references to the Chicago White Sox
  2. References to The Simpsons
If you go back through the archives, I'd wager money that almost every game played away from Mizzou Arena features a Matt Groening-based contribution from UA.

The Boy makes boxing analogies. The Boy's cat makes noise during podcast. ghtd36 drops random hilarity. UribeAuction drops Simpsons references. Such are some of the facts of life around Rock M Nation.

So as we, for one, welcome our new overlords, we would like to take the time to remind UribeAuction that Milhouse is, in fact, NOT a meme.

FYI: This meme is officially endorsed by Duffman. Ooooh yeah!
