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 2 v. 7 matchup in the Boulevard Regional.

No. 2 Brass Bonanza vs No. 7 ghtd36's Kendial Lawrence manlove


Big Meme Conf. (Misc.)

Meme Coast Conf. (User-specific)

There's nothing quite like the official celebratory music of Rock M Nation. There's a reason we let it play in its entirety at the end of the postgame podcast following Missouri's win over Memphis to reach the Elite Eight.

Yes, in a short time, Brass Bonanza has become as much a part of Rock M Nation as any member or any other meme.

We all feel the hurt of the Hartford Whalers absence from the NHL, but that's no good excuse to let the euphonious melody of Brass Bonanza go to waste.

While we get an occasional bittersweet laugh at Brass Bonanza's evil counterpart (Total Eclipse of the Heart), there's nothing quite like the explosion of brass to accompany us into discussion of Mizzou's epic successes.

The question now becomes: If Brass Bonanza wins Meme Madness, would using it as celebration music for its own celebration tear a hole in the Internets and the space-time continuum?

Let's make this abundantly clear: ghtd36 LOVES Kendial Lawrence.

Missouri's newest freshman tailback may not come to Mizzou with out-of-control hype from the Rivals guys, but Lord knows he's already carrying a fan club of at least one. It's not uncommon for ghtd36 to lead off the subject line of a post with "HOLY GOD," but the sheer giddiness of our boy ghtd36 reached a landmark point with Lawrence's commitment.

The manlove allowed me to create the image you see above, an image that nearly sent The Boy to the hospital.

The resulting "Kendial Lawrence is God" meme has reached some pretty epic proportions around here. The Boy perhaps best summed it up:

One day.... Kendial Lawrence is going to google his name, and he’s not going to be even REMOTELY prepared for what he finds.

No pressure, Kendial. The weight of ghtd36's world is on your shoulders. Welcome to Mizzou.
